As part of the Muscogee County School District’s student technology initiative, our Chromebook roll out will occur Wednesday, January 29th. Your child won’t be able to successfully complete their academic work at Shaw and thus their academic success may be in jeopardy without this valuable tool. If you have NOT turned in your AUP and Chromebook form by Friday, January 24th, you will receive a call from administration and consequences may ensue at the discretion of the administrators.

Senior Parents

If you have not had your individual senior parent meeting with Ms. Cypert this school year, it is imperative that you call the guidance office secretary, Mrs. Barrington, or email Ms. Cypert to set up a time to meet within the next few weeks.  Ms. Cypert must meet with all seniors and their parent or guardian. 



As a reminder, emails for Student Checkouts are NOT allowed unless it is a documented emergency. Checkouts may be done by guardians in person through our Attendance Office. If your student is a driver, you may send a parent note that it is ok for the student to check out at a certain time. You must include your name, phone number, and signature for this to be verified by our front office staff.

Raiders, don’t forget to follow us on our Shaw High School Facebook page.

Parents, we thank you for your continued support of reminding your students of the importance of abiding by the rules and regulations that govern our building.  United, we can ensure Shaw is a school in which all are valued and inspired. 

These are the announcements for this week.  Have a wonderful week and remember at all times we must:

Be accountable; Be engaged; Be kind; Be a Raider!
