A Reminder to Students and Parents: SHS is a closed campus. Attention all SHS students: You must sign out with Mrs. Denlinger at the front Sign-Out desk on the first floor when you leave during the school day--no matter the reason. And all students must sign back in--regardless of why you were gone. Otherwise, you will be truant and a disciplinary referral will be written. Attention SHS Parents: Students may not come or go during the day without parent/guardian permission. Please send a note with your student allowing them to do so which they should give to the Attendance Clerk, Mrs. Denlinger.
ATTENTION: STUDENTS SIGN IN AND OUT EVERY TIME: All students must physically sign in and out at the Front Office Desk on the first floor with Mrs. Denlinger during school hours regardless of where and when they are going. Otherwise they will be marked truant. PARENTS NEED TO REPORT ABSENCES AND TARDIES: Please call the Attendance Line (734) 401-4387, to report your student’s absence or tardy. Always send in a note to allow your student to sign out early which Mrs. Denlinger can authorize—then we do not have to interrupt the teachers.

Early College Alliance (ECA) The SAS district has committed to participating in the ECA as a secondary option for our students. What is it? The Early College Alliance (ECA) is a unique educational program designed to fully immerse high school-aged students into the post-secondary learning environment. ECA is a public, early/middle college program located on the campus of Eastern Michigan University. It exists in partnership with local school districts, including Washtenaw Intermediate School District. The program gives students an opportunity to earn college credits while still in high school and offers strong, academically focused students a chance to enroll in advanced, college-level coursework. It also provides an alternative for students who are either struggling or do not feel connected to their school. ECA allows students to: *Graduate from high school with a diploma and up to 60 college credits. *Attend classes on a university campus with support. *Learn in a college environment that fosters maturity and academic growth. *Gain vital skills for college success. ECA is funded through a percentage of each district's foundation allowance and continues seeking additional funding through both public and private sources. ECA is recognized by the Michigan Department of Education as a four plus one program. Students can participate in the program a year past what would have been their graduation year, while not negatively impacting the district’s Adequate Yearly Progress. This is an added benefit to the district and to the student. The ECA is an alternative for students who want a different high school experience. This is similar to the other options that are available. Below is a list of all of the secondary options that are available to Saline students: ECA - Early College Alliance through Eastern Michigan University, WIHI - Washtenaw International High School (County International Baccalaureate (IB) program, WAVE - Washtenaw Alliance for Virtual Education, Saline Alternative High School.

SWWC CAD Best Showing at MITES Competition!! For the last 89 years, the Michigan Industrial Technology Education Society has been hosting a project based competition. Around 30 or 40 years ago the regional competition was held here in Saline. This is our fourth year competing, and this year's SWWC CAD class had the strongest showing yet. There are around 25 different categories that we enter projects into, including things like photo-realistic renderings of CAD drawings, blueprints, hand drawings, and model houses. The class had all 91 projects that were entered make it through regionals and qualify for states, and an amazing 36 of them placed top 3 in the state and earned a plaque. We had 12 individual state champions, 12 runners-up, and 12 third place finishes. In addition we had two Divisional Grand Award winners, which means their project were deemed the best in the entire division regardless of category. Tobias Schmidt won the Mechanical Drafting division and Alex Hartman won the Animation division. This is the first time that a Saline student has won a Divisional Grand Award, and we had two! I am very proud of my entire class and how they contributed to this years success, but I have to single out Alex Hartman. He turned in 5 projects and won 3 state titles, one runner up, and one third place. Congrats to all those who competed!!
