SEPTEMBER IS SUICIDE PREVENTION MONTH
September marks National Suicide Prevention Month – a month to remember the lives lost to suicide, the millions of people who have struggled with suicidal ideation, and acknowledge the individuals, families, and communities that have been impacted. It is also a time to raise awareness about suicide prevention and share messages of hope.
Also, in support of Suicide Prevention Month, students and faculty are asked to wear purple next Friday, September 22nd. Join in and support this great cause.
Interim Progress Reports posted to Focus on September 14th. Contact teachers directly if you have any questions.
FEDERAL IMPACT AID SURVEY
Parents should log into FOCUS and access the Federal Impact Aid Survey through the Parent Portal beginning September 19th.
COVID-19 PROTOCOL UPDATE
BPS has returned to pre-COVID protocols for communicable and infectious diseases. Students should stay home or seek assistance from their health care provider if they are sick.
Any absences from school will need a physicians' note for the absence to be considered excused.
PARENT AND COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT OPPORTUNITY
Brevard Public Schools (BPS) is inviting parents/community members to provide input for the selection of State Standards aligned instructional materials. There are four opportunities for parent/community input on the K-12 Social Studies materials adoption. Click Here if you are interested in participating or learning more about this opportunity.
MESSAGE FOR BIKE RIDERS AND WALKERS
Students should use the designated bike racks to lock up bikes. Please do not lock bikes along the white fence - it prevents the gate from being slid open to let delivery trucks in.
Satellite High School's north gate will close at 8:45 am for security of the SHS campus. Scotties who walk or ride to school will need to continue past the location of the old water tower to the stop sign to access campus.

We have sent home a 2023-2024 Code of Student Conduct Acknowledgement form with every student.
We ask that you review the highlighted changes outlined in the document and return the blue Acknowledgement Form to your student's 7th period teacher.
ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES AND GUIDELINES
Students are allowed up to 9 unexcused absences per semester.
If you know your student will be absent for any reason, please call the front office at 321-773-7581 ext. 31601 so that we can indicate your student's absence on Focus. Automated phone calls/emails are sent to the parents/guardians if students are absent (without notification) and if there are excessive absences.
If your student arrives to campus after 9:30 am, please come to the front office to check your student in. The student will be marked tardy without a doctor/dentist note.
STUDENT CHECK-OUT PROCEDURES
The last check-out of the day is 3:45/2:30 on Fridays. Photo ID is required.
For the safety and well-being of your student, please be advised of the student check-out procedures and guidelines:
Custodial parents must call the front office at 321-773-7581 ext. 31601 IN ADVANCE to give permission for a student to be checked out by any person named on the student contact list. That contact must show photo ID at pick-up.
The contacts you provide for your student are emergency contact only. This means in an emergency situation if the custodial/registering parent(s) or documented legal guardian(s) are not available, you are instructing us to allow a person on your emergency contact list to check out your student. This does not include doctor appointments or non-emergency related events.
Please confirm that we have your most up-to-date cell/work phone contact information and email address.
INCLEMENT WEATHER PLAN
