Remember that SHS will have a special schedule on Wednesday, October 15. All freshman and sophomores will be taking the ACT ASPIRE college and career readiness test. Testing will begin promptly at 7:50 a.m. and should conclude at approximately 12:45 p.m.

Most of our juniors will be taking the PSAT. Juniors who signed up for the PSAT will begin testing promptly at 7:50 a.m. Students should be finished testing at approximately 11:15 a.m.

All 9th, 10th and 11th grade students are permitted to leave the building for the day when they are finished with their respective tests.

Seniors do not need to come to school tomorrow. They may use this time to work on their college applications or other assignments at home. Junior students who are not taking the PSAT may also use the day to complete assignments or other work at home.

The bus routes will run at the regularly scheduled times in the morning and the afternoon. If students do not find a way home after testing is complete, they will be supervised by school personnel in a quiet study area.

SHS shedding light on depression and suicide prevention during Mental Health Awareness Week
Wednesday, October 01, 2014

Solon High School is spreading awareness about depression, mental illness and suicide prevention this week. All week during morning announcements, the health and physical education department is
sharing important information with students, including:

• Depression is a treatable illness just like cancer, asthma, diabetes or heart disease. It is not a weakness or a character flaw. Depression can be genetic and/or triggered by events in a person’s life.
• Suicide is the second leading cause of death among individuals age 15-24.
• More teenagers die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza and chronic lung disease combined.
• Half of all lifetime cases of clinical depression begin by age 14.
• According to the Ohio Department of Mental Health, 20 percent of high school students have seriously considered suicide, 14 percent have made a plan and 9 percent have made a suicide attempt.
• In 90 percent of suicides, the individuals taking their own lives previously struggled with depression or other mental illnesses.

Solon Plans Future
Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Taylor Lurie--Editor-n-Cheif

The Solon Schools held a strategic planning community meeting Tuesday, Sept. 30, to discuss potential changes in the Solon school district.

The district has been contemplating changes for several years as kindergarten enrollment began to decrease.

“We focus on kindergarten enrollment, because how that goes dictates what’s going to happen in the future,” said Joseph Regano, Superintendent of the Solon City Schools.

With kindergarten enrollment decreasing, building capacities in the four Solon elementary schools – Arthur Road, Lewis, Parkside and Roxbury – have subsequently gone down as well, creating inefficiencies. The district Strategic Planning Committee convened an action team in 2011 to study enrollment issues and efficient use of district facilities. That committee made a number of recommendations to the Solon Board of Education, including setting a trigger point of 275 students enrolling in kindergarten for two consecutive years. If that threshold was not met, the report called for the district to reopen the planning process to address the capacity issues.
