2016-17 school year has arrived....

Welcome back Freshman Class of 2020!

We are ready to welcome the newest class of Gators to the Swamp and our student body, staff, and community are very excited for a new year!

All students will make their way back to the SWAMP on Friday as we get the new year rolling!

Congratulations to our Newspaper Production and Journalism program as they were nominated once again for the Peacemaker Award for the best HS newspaper in America!  SLSH received this prestigious distinction in 2014 but are very proud to once again be a finalist for the award!

The staff is excited about our new bell schedule and proving our community/students with more time to sleep and prepare for their academic day-

Adaptive PE Track and Field day!

An amazing event was held this past Wednesday at the JEFFCO stadium.  Schools from across the district brought their adaptive PE teams for the JEFFCO track and field invitational.  The students were excited, competitive and had a tremendous time not to mention the weather was unbelievable.  Our very own GATORS were in full force not only as a team but our GATOR track team and Coach Martin were there all day running the long jump pit!  Great job Gators!
