Are you a Sanford High School student, or the parent or guardian of one? If so, read the SHS welcome letter with info on the cell phone policy, start dates, school photos, new teachers and much more.

Fall sports at SHS start August 15, under the leadership of new Athletic Director Zachary Lemelin. Links to registration and practice schedules can be found here.

School meals are free for all Maine kids! BUT, it is still important that everyone completes the School Meal Benefit Form. This form is used by the state and federal government to determine funding to support education, nutrition, and enrichment programs. Families still need to fill out a School Meal Benefit Form to determine need in their school district. Additionally, any student living in a household with income that makes them eligible for a free or reduced price school meal may also be eligible to receive extra grocery benefits through the Pandemic EBT program. Complete your School Meal Benefit Form here: https://bit.ly/3vS5oeo.
