Message from the Principal

Dear Smithfield High School Parents and Students,

As the new principal of Smithfield High School, I welcome you to the start of the 2015-2016 school year! We hope that all of you had a wonderful summer filled with lots of excitement, rest, and relaxation. We would like to welcome back our returning students and welcome our newcomers to the Packers family.  School will officially begin on September 8, 2015; however, there are events happening prior to the first day.

Back to School Night

Back to School Night takes place from 4:00PM to 7:00PM on September 2, 2015 and is available for grades 9-12.  During Back to School Night, students tour the building and meet their assigned teachers.  Class schedules will be distributed during Back to School Night. Our guidance staff will have forms available for any scheduling concerns. Parents will be able to sign up for the school email newsletter and complete all first day of school forms. There will be an opportunity to attend and complete the digital citizenship presentation requirement. This requirement must be met before any freshman or transfer student receives an iPad.

Freshman/Transfer Student Orientation (IGNITION Program)

All freshmen have an opportunity to attend the freshman orientation, IGNITION! The program will take place at Smithfield High School (please report to the auditorium) on September 2, 2015. The event begins at 11:00am and ends at 3:00pm. Please attend to learn more about SHS, meet staff and teachers, run through your schedule, and prepare for the first day of school.

iPad Forms and Procedures

All iPad forms must be completed prior to iPad check out.  The forms are available in the SHS front office and on the school website, http://shs.iwcs.k12.va.us/page/isle-21/. You will need the following forms completed prior to reporting:

  • AUP—Acceptable Computer System Use Agreement
  • MOU—Student Memorandum of Understanding for iPad
  • Parent Acknowledgement Form for Student iPad Use
  • Student email agreement 

Upperclassmen iPad Distribution & Parking

Senior Day—September 1, 2015 (9:00AM—2:00PM)

Junior Day—September 3, 2015 (9:00AM—2:00PM)

  • On the respective dates, upperclassmen will be able to purchase parking passes and receive assigned iPads. Students will have an opportunity to pay for class dues and other obligations. To expedite the process, upon arrival, parents/students should have all necessary paperwork fully completed.
  • Senior/Junior parking passes will go on sale at 9:00AM on September 1st and 3rd respectively. Please report on your assigned day. Parking spaces are $100.00 for the year. Students must bring a copy of their driver’s license and vehicle registration.

Sophomore and Freshmen iPad Distribution

Underclassmen will receive iPads during the second week of school. To ensure your student has met all requirements, please complete and turn in all paperwork and make sure to attend the digital citizenship presentation on Back to School Night if you have a freshman or transfer student. Students will receive an appointment pass during their first block to retrieve their iPad once all requirements have been fulfilled.
