Anti-Bullying Resources:
We work hard every single day to ensure that students accelerate academically, and the safety and well-being of our students is a top priority. Bullying and cyber-bullying affect a student’s ability to focus on learning and to succeed in the classroom and beyond. These inappropriate behaviors are a concern to all of us who work with students on a daily basis. Recent events in the news remind us of the tragic impact that this harassment can have on students. Below you will find important terms and resources that are available to educators, parents, and students to enhance students’ experiences at SHS. Sandusky High School has a zero tolerance for bullying and all incidents should be reported to the principals, counselors, and/or the school resource officer.
Visit the district "Safety & Security" page for information on how to stop bullying and harassing behavior.

Sandusky City Schools Change of Last Day of School for Elementary Students
Sandusky, Ohio. At the Board of Education meeting on Tuesday, February 18th, Sandusky City Schools Board Members voted to change the last day of school for all elementary students in grades preschool through 6th. The last day of school for grades preschool through 6th will now be May 29th, 2020.
 
During the days of June 1st – 4th, Sandusky City Schools’ staff will attend professional learning sessions and begin their transition to the newly configured school buildings. Moving the last day of school will allow extra time for largest transition in Sandusky City Schools history.
 
“We want to prepare for this move as best as we can”, stated Dr. Stephen Sturgill, Chief of Staff and Transformation Officer. “We are creating a plan that will allow for a smooth transition into our new buildings. Over the next few months we will have a better idea on how far along construction is and we can solidify our plans. These extra days will be a huge help in this transition process.”
 
Sandusky City Schools is currently working with community organizations to provide activities so students have the opportunity to be engaged during that week. Information will be distributed appropriately to students when available. Students in grades 7-12 will operate as normal, with their last day of school remaining as June 4th .
