Summer Announcements

Good evening Southern SES family!  This is Mr. Leathers with some summer announcements.


All fall sports will start August 1 and it is very important that all students that have intentions on playing Men Soccer, Men and Women Cross Country, Women Tennis, Volleyball and Football, must have a current physical on file with Coach Brian Nunn, the school’s athletic director before participating.   There are some sports that have started conditioning, in preparation for the August 1, start date.   Any student can participate in the conditioning phase.  Starting August 1, eligibility standards will be followed for all students.  1st time 9th graders are automatically eligible for the fall season only.  Please call the school for questions that you may have in preparing for the fall season.


Band Camp will start August 1st as well,  for all students who wish to participate in the Marching Band, please reach out to Harry Stokes our schools band director for more information or you may call the school for further directions.  Every participant must have a current physical to participate.


Southern SES Wellness Center will be giving physicals for those who may need one completed before the season starts.  Please call 919-560-3536 to schedule an appointment.  Physicals will cost $25.


Students will soon have access to the class schedules.  Please make note that there will be time to speak with their counselor about issues relating to their schedules on the week of August 2 – August 4.  The school will make another call to our families relating to when students will have access to their schedules.  This year, we are moving forward with our students being assigned to counselors by alphabet.  That information will be conveyed on Wednesday of this week.


All seniors please make note that Senior Portraits are scheduled for Friday, August 12th.  You will have to schedule you sitting through or by calling 1-800-343-5735.  Each senior is expected to have their picture taken for the yearbook.  If there is a desire to receive your proofs to purchase pictures, there will be a sitting fee of $25.

9th grade Orientation for our parents and their students on August 11th from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm

I look forward to seeing as many of our 9th grade students and families as possible on August 11th.


Open House for all students is scheduled for August 23rd from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm


It is very important that all families complete or update your registration/student information.  It is important if the plans are for your student to ride the bus to and from school.
