Dear Parents and Students of Summerville Union High School District:

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Summerville Union High School District. We welcome every returning and new student to the Summerville Community. This year brings an entirely new freshman class, many new teachers, and administrators, and the class of 2019 is beginning their journey to graduation. Meanwhile, our mission is to provide an outstanding education to each and every student. Whatever the future may hold for our students, we desire to help prepare them for the challenges and opportunities that await them.

Our team is preparing to make this a successful year for all students. The first day of school is Wednesday, August 22nd. The main campus start time is 7:55 AM and school dismiss the first day at 2:05 PM. The school has a slightly different bell schedule than in the past, so please take note. The district will be continuing the fee for home-to-school transportation. See the handbook for details.

We have a very high functioning school that provides a remarkable array of opportunities for students in many areas. My recommendation to students is to get involved in your school and thereby making it a better place for everyone. There are a huge variety of clubs, sports, activities, performances, and learning opportunities to choose from. If you need any assistance, always feel free to call our office!

It’s a great day to be a Bear!

Robert N. Griffith
