This year's 2021 'Out of this World' Homecoming week is kicking off tomorrow, September 20th, at SHS and we are ready to celebrate! Since as far back as 1928 our Chieftains have been celebrating the school, the alumni and the traditions during Homecoming week and we are honored to continue these traditions. There are many things planned this week for our students; float building for the homecoming parade on Friday, dressing up each day to show our school spirit, classroom door decorating contests, a traditional car smash, and finally, welcoming our community and alumni back to watch our '21 Homecoming Court be crowned before watching our Chieftains take on Stigler... it going to be a great week to say the least! Attached are a few things that Student Council has diligently worked hard to plan and we are thrilled to invite our students, faculty, community and alumni to join in on the festivities! We are eager to see the Chieftain Spirit this upcoming week! #homecomingweek #21SHSHOCO #OutofthisWorldHoCo

If they haven't used the voucher, they will need to register for the July test. They may then have the option to change it to the fall since campus is closed to the public and probably won't be having a July test. They must register with these vouchers during the 2019-2020 academic year which ends after the July test.
