Message from the Principal

Dear Packer Parents,

We’re already in second semester and headed for the end of the school year in June! I am pleased to say that the students performed well on the first round of SOL tests. We are offering remediation sessions for students who may need assistance as they prepare for expedited retakes for SOL tests. Students who are eligible for the retakes should have received a letter from me. Please encourage your student to attend the remediation sessions, as they may not join us for the retakes if they have not completed 6 hours of remediation. For more information concerning expedited SOL retakes, please contact Assistant Principal, Mrs. Debby Martin.

As many of you know, I send home a weekly newsletter to keep parents up-to-date on school events. I have recently changed the delivery method for my weekly news to parents. I am now sending SHS parents information on the School Way app. If you would like to receive school news from me, please download the School Way app and sign up for notifications from Smithfield High School. Directions for downloading the School Way app can be found right here on our school website! I will post school information on the School Way app as needed, rather than once a week.

We look forward to graduation and Mrs. Joyce Kennedy continues to meet with students and parents to keep everyone well-informed about graduation events and requirements. Please make sure that your student is aware of the recent information shared about purchasing pictures, cap and gowns, and end-of-year “Seniors Only” events. We do not want them to miss out on any of the graduation excitement!

I would like to remind you that I am always here to listen to your comments or concerns. You may contact me at jmcdowell@iwcs.k12.va.us or you may call for an appointment at (757)357-3108. Thanks, again, for your continued support!

With Packer Pride, 

Dr. Joyce McDowell

Principal
