Internet bot threat
Wednesday, February 21 - Tonight at about 9:20 p.m. we were informed about an apparent online threat toward an entity identified as SHS. After speaking with law enforcement it was determined that this is an internet 'bot' message that has been sent internationally and nationally and has no merit. There is no student enrolled who has the name listed on this account. It is safe to send your kids to school tomorrow (weather pending) and we will have police and security on site at Snohomish High School as a precautionary measure.
Free ACT opportunity for district juniors
All Snohomish High School juniors will be offered the American College Test (ACT) free of charge on April 24 during the school day. This is an amazing opportunity for students to take a college entrance assessment at no cost to families and for our schools to collect data that will help improve student learning. As a district, offering free ACT reflects our commitment to eliminating barriers to career and college readiness. Students testing on April 24 at their high school will be registered by the district office. Therefore, registration is not required for the April 24 testing session. The test is voluntary; however, we strongly recommend that all of our juniors take the test. Students who take the ACT outside of the April 24 district-hosted testing will need to follow the ACT national testing process located at www.act.org. To learn more, contact your student’s high school or visit this link.

Incoming freshmen will meet in the Auxiliary Gym for a mini-assembly designed to introduce the newest Panthers to the culture and opportunities at SHS. Following these separate meetings, parents and students will come together in the Main Gym for a curriculum fair.
Pre-registration dates and info
Current SHS students will be pre-registering for next school year during the months of February and March. The schedule is listed below. On presentation days, counselors will be instructing students about graduation requirements, college admissions requirements, credit status, and how to choose classes for next year. Students will bring materials home so they can make wise scheduling decisions with their families. Please take time to review these materials and to assist your child in making good choices. Students are expected to enter their course choices online through Family Access prior to registration due dates. On due dates, counselors will be re-visiting classrooms to collect registration materials and to make sure they are complete. During this time, counselors are frequently out of office, so they appreciate your patience as you await their responses to your emails and phone calls.
