Field Experience Reminder -
Deadline Approaching! 

Attention Juniors! You are required to complete two field experiences your junior year to satisfy graduation project requirements.  These field experiences can consist of a college or trade school visit (either in person or virtual), a job shadow, attendance at a career speaker, attendance at the college and career fair (happening March 8th), or a part-time job.  Once you have completed the experience, you will need to write a reflection (found here) and upload it into Naviance.  Both field experiences need to be completed and uploaded by March 15, 2023. There can be up to five days of excused absences for college visits/job shadowing.

YCAL Spring Programs 


York County Alliance for Learning (YCAL) opened registration for their spring career exploration programs.  These programs are held at various sites in the county and allow students an opportunity to learn more about a specific career field, interact with professionals in that field, find out about the education needed for success in that career, see various positions and pathways within that field, and ask questions to help clarify their interest in that career.  These programs can also be used by juniors to meet a field experience requirement for the graduation project.  There are also a large number of virtual programs that are in the YCAL library from previous career exploration programs.  These can be watched by both students and parents when convenient and also used by juniors for a field experience.

To find out more information about a specific program or to register, please use the following link: https://ycal.us/students/mentoring-program/

As always, SHS is proud to partner with many colleges to offer visits from admissions representatives to provide our students valuable information about different schools. We are resuming in-person visits this school year, but will also be conducting virtual visits as well.

Students can sign up on Naviance for these visits. For a list of colleges that are scheduled to visit and when please click here.

Canvas Parent App Instructions

Canvas is the Learning Management System that most SHS students will use to view and submit their classroom assignments for their in-person and digital days. All SHS students are assigned an account and parents are eligible to have an “observer” account which gives them access to view their student’s courses, assignments, due dates, etc. It is highly encouraged that parents set up this account. Additionally, this year the SHS Counseling Office also has a page on Canvas which parents can access through an observer account.  For more information and instructions on how to create your observer account, please click here.
The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is continuing to offer services and assistance to students and their families. There are a variety of interventions and programs available, including counseling assessments through True North, school-based counseling through Pennsylvania Comprehensive Behavioral Health (PCBH), and monitoring and mentoring programs through the school. If you are interested in any of these services, please contact your child's school counselor.
