Principal Welcome

  • Dear Panthers,

    It is my pleasure to welcome you to the first virtual opening of school in Snohomish High School’s 126 year history. It is both an honor and a challenge for us to maintain the level of excellence that we expect to provide and that our school community expects us to offer in this setting. We have risen to the challenge of social-distancing by providing a virtual experience this fall and are prepared to maintain and even surpass the educational experience our students expect and deserve.

    As many of our staff are Panthers themselves, or have students who attend SHS, it is a personally enriching experience we are working to provide our students. During this year we will work to provide you clear and consistent communication and continue to act as a partner in your student‘s education. Having a relational approach to educating our students is a cornerstone of our beliefs and values and is rooted in our belief that we are a part of the community and the community is a part of us.

    Lastly, we believe in the education of all kids. No matter how you look, your skill, your age, your race, your gender identity, or your background we believe all students deserve more than schooling. They deserve an education to rise-up and create a vision for who they want to be in the world knowing they have the support of our school community to make that vision a reality. We believe through our updated procedures and policies, including our grading policies, and our professional learning regarding civility and social justice, that we are progressing in the area of equity every year and every day.

    It is our pleasure to serve you, our neighbors and our community. GO PANTHERS!

    With Panther Pride,


    Eric Cahan
