New Student Orientation
Students entering ninth grade and
students new to Springbrook will have an opportunity to visit the school and
meet their teachers during this orientation program. Buses will make their normal run on this half
day schedule, and the bus schedule is posted on the SHS home page for your
reference. Students will gather in the
auditorium to meet the administration and to receive directions to visit their
classes. This orientation is for new students only!
Communicating with the school
administration, parents should first address instructional concerns with the
classroom teacher and resource teacher (RT). If you need to contact the
administration or RT, please refer to the academic department directory.
The SHS homepage is up-to-date and gives specific information regarding
school activities and other important contact information. Your students teachers and counselors can be

The attendance secretary
is now in the main office. Students are expected to on time and in class every
day. Attendance is of great importance to student success at SHS. We believe that school achievement starts
with regular school attendance. Students
who are absent must submit a note from a parent/guardian within three days of
their return to school. Our complete
attendance procedures are contained in the Student
Personal Electronic Devices
Students may only use these devices before school, during transition
time, during lunch, and after school. These
devices must be turned off and out of sight during classroom instructional time unless otherwise instructed by the
teacher. If they are displayed or in
use during classroom instructional time, they may be confiscated. Students may retrieve confiscated items at
the end of the school day; however, a parent may be required to come to school
to retrieve items for students with repeat offenses. SHS will not assume any
responsibility for these items if they are lost or stolen. Please encourage
your student to use these items responsibly.
Dress Code Requirements
While dress and grooming are
primarily the responsibility of students and their parents, in order to establish a business-like atmosphere and
prevent the possible disruption to educational activities, SHS has established
the following guidelines:
- Shoes must be
worn at all times.
- Emblems or items
of clothing which are or could be construed to be offensive to segments of our school
population may not be worn.
- Clothing that
depicts or advocates the use of drugs, tobacco, alcohol, or weapons may not be
- Tank tops, crop
tops, exposed midriffs, or visible undergarments are not permitted.
- Head gear (hats,
bandannas, hoods, sunglasses, etc.) may not be worn once a student has entered
the building. Head scarves are permitted to be worn by female students only.
All students will receive an
agenda book during the first week of school free of charge which gives detailed
information about school policies and procedures. If lost, replacement agenda books are
available for purchase from the Financial Office at a cost of $5.00.
Please be aware
that MCPS occasionally has late openings or early dismissals due to inclement
weather or unusual emergencies. These weather related decisions are made by the
MCPS Central Office and not by SHS. Parents are requested to not call the
school about emergency closing information. When school emergencies occur, the
information is broadcast over local radio and television stations, as well as
the MCPS website, within minutes of any decisions being made.
Locker assignments will be given on the
second day of school to students who return the emergency information form.
(The emergency information form is distributed on the first day of school.)
Lockers at SHS have built-in combinations; therefore, students need not provide
their own locks. Anything found in the locker belongs to the student to whom
the locker was assigned. Security is a primary concern for all of us at
school. If students choose to bring
personal electronic devices or other valuables to school they assume full
responsibility for these items. In addition, students are solely responsible
for securing their belongings in a safe place.
The school is not responsible for lost or stolen electronic devices. We
prohibit students from sharing lockers with anyone else.
SHS has a one lunch program designed to allow students to obtain additional
help from their teachers. All teachers
are available during the lunch period to assist those students in need.
Students are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity. The lunch period is a “closed” lunch program,
therefore, students must remain on campus in either the cafeteria, first
floor hallway, or in one of the two outdoor courtyards. Outside
deliveries are not allowed during the school day, therefore, students can not order food to be delivered
. Students also are expected to respect their facility, eat in designated
areas, and dispose of their trash appropriately.
Parking permits will be available the first
week of school. Any student who does not
have a financial obligation may pick up a parking application in the Main
Office or in the Security Office.
Completed applications must be accompanied by cash or a check for $75.00
and returned to the Security Office.
Please make checks payable to Springbrook High School. Vehicles without current parking permits can
expect to be towed. Student drivers who
develop a pattern of tardiness or other problems may have their parking permit
