  • Each week in Advisory, our students watch character education videos from a group called The Harbor. Typically, these are copyrighted videos that can only be shown in the educational setting, but The Harbor has produced an open video that they hope will inspire and encourage those who see it. Please feel free to view and share:
    https://youtu.be/2OjjWh-8Iv0

    The Harbor has also made several previous videos public that deal with emotional situations and how to handle them. Anyone who would like to can also view these videos, and there are video guides and discussion questions that go along with them in the links.
    Courage – In this Harbor episode, we dissect the relationship between courage, helping others, and our own comfort
    https://vimeo.com/299254235/2a2feba5e7
    Patience – In this Harbor episode, special guest Aaron Davis teaches up patience is the ability to accept and to delay without getting angry or upset.
    https://vimeo.com/212263551/ba3f6e0588
    Positivitiy and Social Media - As we all rely on social media to help us pass the time, this Harbor episode provides insight on how we can use social media to create positive impact. https://vimeo.com/371754555/9828a3cef4
    Self-Reflection – In this Harbor episode, we discuss the importance of self-reflection. Now, more than ever, we are afforded the time for quiet, contemplative self-reflection. https://vimeo.com/369941091/5691151431
    Solutions > Problems - COVID-19 has given up many problems we could allow to overwhelm us. In this Harbor episode, we talk about the power in focusing on solutions instead of problems.
    https://vimeo.com/326896846/8c4edd3b62
    Service – In this Harbor episode, host Mike Smith shares insights on how service can change your life and how important it is to find joy in the small moments. https://vimeo.com/161212442/1748265607
    Fear - We are all afraid of something. In this time we are all afraid of the same thing. We can let fear consume us, or we can use our fear to make positive changes in our own life and in the lives of others.

  • For students and parents/guardians new to Smiths Station High School, some information about morning and afternoon traffic flow:
    Mornings - Please keep in mind that students should be in their 1st period class (or for the first day of school, homeroom) by 8:45 EST. We recommend arriving early for at least the first few days until you are comfortable with the routine. Traffic issues do not excuse tardies. Student drivers can enter either the main entrance (at the school sign) or the secondary entrance. Students should park in the main student parking lot, closest to Lee Road 430 (the back parking lot is used for overflow parking only). For parent/guardian drop off, please use the secondary entrance (the one further from the school sign). You will enter the first parking lot that you come to from that direction to drop your child off (please do not park), and turn left to exit back out of the secondary entrance. Neither student nor parent drivers should enter the bus line parking.
    Afternoons - The bell rings for dismissal at 4:00 EST. At this time, the main school entrance is exit only for students leaving the student parking lot. Students going right should be in the right lane, students going left should be in the left lane. Students cannot drive straight to cross the railroad tracks across from the school. For parents picking students up, you will use the secondary entrance to enter, and follow signs to the first parking lot that you come to from that direction and park in a parking spot to wait for your child. When leaving, you will go left and exit back out of the secondary entrance. Again, neither student nor parent drivers should enter the bus line parking.
    Please be cautious in both the mornings and afternoons of school staff directing traffic. Also, deputies will be out to enforce school speed zones and other traffic laws.

  • PayPAMS.com for ALL FEES is now available. This system provides a convenient and safe place to make school meal and fee payments, eliminating the need for students to bring cash/checks to school. It is available on the web or any iOS or Android mobile device.
    When signing up, select Lee County Board of Education - Opelika, complete the registration form, enter student info, and select the appropriate school. If you already have a lunch account, you must create a separate account for school fees.
