Important Lunch/Cafeteria Information for the 2023-2024 School Year.
The Diocese of Covington has changed the meal payment system for all schools participating in the National School Lunch program. We are no longer using the K12 payment center website.
The new service is Myschoolbucks.com which is now live. You can now create an account, selecting the Diocese of Covington as your district and adding your student(s). All money that remained at the end of the 2022-2023 school year was rolled over into the new system. Please use the site to set low balance notifications, make deposits, and answer any questions about what your students purchase daily by viewing history. As always, we will also be happy to deposit cash or checks at school. We ask that you put the money in an envelope with your student's name.
There have been increases in the price this school year lunch is now $3.40, and milk is $.55. The limit for charging meals remains the same at $20.00. It is impossible for ala carte items and beverages to be charged.
The SHDHS cafeteria webpage is located under parent resources. It will contain links to important documents, the link for free and reduced lunch, and the cafeteria menu for the month. Click here to access the cafeteria webpage.
If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact the cafeteria manager, Deb Miller, at [email protected].

MORNING DROP-OFF AND AFTER-SCHOOL PICK-UP
School begins at 7:45 am. Students will enter at the main school entrance. The school opens at 7:00 am. Please pull up, as close as possible, to the circle in front of the main entrance for morning drop-off. For after-school pickup, please park in a marked parking space in the main lot (do not park in the fire lane or front circle). Students will have a staggered release beginning at 2:37 pm. Please stay in your car when picking up your student from practices or after-school activities. All students should be picked up by 3:00 pm unless they are involved in an activity immediately after school. Thank you for following these simple procedures to help keep all our students safe.
LOCKS/LOCKERS AND BACKPACKS
We wanted to inform you of a change we will make this year regarding school-issued lockers. We will continue to allow students to carry their backpacks throughout the day and provide a locker for all students. In the past, we have required all students to have locks on their lockers. However, most students did not utilize their locks as intended. After much discussion and getting student input, we have decided not to issue a lock to all students but make it optional at the student's request, a cost of $5. If your child wishes to have a lock for the 2023-2024 school year, please complete the Google form below and agree to the terms.
Lock Request (Everyone will receive a locker)
Reporting Tardy, Absence
We have a 24-hour message system for parents to report students who are tardy or absent. Please call the main office anytime, day or night, at 859-525-0255, press zero (0), and follow the instructions.
Absentee Notes Required
Upon returning from an absence period (whole or half-day), a student must bring a note from their parents or guardian. A note is required even if parents pick up their child or talk to the office by phone. This note must include the following information:
- Date the note was written;
- Student’s first and last name;
- Date of absence;
- The specific reason for the absence;
- Signature of parent/guardian.
Please email this information to the [email protected] or deliver a printed copy to the front office.
Please wait until school starts and students meet with their teachers to review the syllabus for each class before purchasing supplies.
School Uniforms - The uniform policy is on page 42 in the Student Handbook.
Picture Day is scheduled for Tuesday, August 22, during the school day. Students can wear a nice shirt or spirit wear with their uniform pants.
