    Dear Spartans & Families

    The first week of school is in the books!

    Morning Traffic / Drop Off

    Thank you for exercising caution and patience during the morning drop-off. We will continue to monitor the mornings to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and families. 

    A few reminders and changes: 

    • Please continue to use the front of the building for student drop-off.
    • Doors will now be open at 6:45 to accommodate students arriving early and begin the drop-off process.
    • To relieve congestion, once the car has reached the front of the building, students should exit the car quickly and safely.
    • No cars are permitted in the “Bus Loop” before school starts

    Remind student drivers to only park in the designated student parking in the back parking lot.  We have several staff members and visitors that come and go throughout the day at Stevenson. 

    Again, thank you for your cooperation as we work together to keep our students and each other safe.

  • SHS Interim Assistant Principal

    Posted by Stevenson High School on 9/8/2021 2:00:00 PM

    Dear Spartans and Families

    I am excited to announce that Mr. David Mitchell will be serving as our interim Assistant Principal in the Attendance Office as the district looks to find a permanent replacement. 

    As you may have heard, Ms. Lindsay Rousseau transferred to Emerson Middle School just prior to the start of the school year.

    You may recognize Mr. Mitchell as a long-time teacher at Holmes Middle School and the current hockey coach at Stevenson. I have no doubt that Mr. Mitchell will be a great asset to the Stevenson Community during his time with us. 

    His contact information is as follows

    dmitchel@livoniapublicschools.org

    734-744-2660 ext. 48991

     

    Please give Mr. Mitchell a warm Spartan welcome. 


    All the best

    Mr. Mazzoni

  • SHS update September 7, 2021

    Posted by Stevenson High School on 9/7/2021 3:30:00 PM
    Dear Spartans and Families.
     
    It was awesome to see our students in the building today. 
     
    If by chance anyone still has textbooks / Chromebooks / other LPS issued materials from previous years, it would be greatly appreciated if those items are returned to the Main Office. 
     
    As a reminder, we are returning to our regular daily schedule tomorrow - Wednesday, September 8, 2021. First hour starts at 7:25 am
    Doors will open at 7:00 am. Breakfast is available. 
     
    If you have LCTC 1st/2nd block, the bus will leave from the bus loop at 7:05 am
     
    Last, the proper wearing of the mask is that the nose and mouth are both fully covered. 
     
    Go Spartans!

    Principal, Stevenson High School

    Please see the attached schedule for the orientation and bring your schedule and a writing instrument. 

    All students will attend an abbreviated schedule starting at 11:25 am. Tuesday's schedule is attached.

    LCTC classes are not running on this day. All LCTC students will need to report to the South Cafeteria.

  • Attention Seniors! Class of 2022 Information

    Posted by Stevenson High School on 9/2/2021 2:00:00 PM

    SHS Seniors 2022

    Dear Spartans Class of 2022 & Families,

    I wanted to take a moment to put some dates on your radar and share some information with you regarding senior-related events. Believe it or not, the events will be here sooner than expected.

    Senior Portraits:

    Leave your mark on Stevenson High School and document the milestone of your senior year by making sure that your senior portrait is included in both the yearbook and the senior class composite poster that hangs by the entrance to the school. Click here for more details including what the senior portraits need to look like.

    To ensure inclusion in the 2022 Yearbook, all photos must be submitted for the yearbook from outside photographers by January 14, 2022, in order for seniors to have their portraits featured in the yearbook. 

    Questions or concerns about the yearbook should be emailed to Sean Horgan at shorgan@livoniapublicschools.org 

    Questions or concerns about the composite should be addressed through Focal Point.  The due date to ensure inclusion in the composite is 2/28/22.

    Class of 2022 Diploma Certificate: 

    Seniors need to click here to submit how they would like their name to appear on their diploma.  Seniors must complete this form using their LPS account.

    SHS Records Release: 

    Seniors or a member of their family need to click here to indicate whether the student's information such as transcripts are allowed to be released to college recruiters and the U.S. military. Seniors must complete this form using their LPS account.

    Transcripts Request

    Stevenson  High School sends student transcripts electronically to colleges, scholarship competitions, NCAA, and other organizations using a secure transcript system called Parchment. Students first must register and create an account on the Parchment website.  Once registered, students will log into the Parchment System and select the college/organization where their Stevenson Transcript needs to be sent. Once students have requested their transcript through Parchment, they will be able to track the status of their request online via the Parchment website.  Students will also receive an email notification when their request has been approved and again when their transcript has been delivered.  

    *Important- at the end of this school year, seniors must request a final transcript through Parchment to be sent to the college they plan to attend in the fall.   

    Cap & Gown / Graduation Materials Orders:

    Information regarding cap & gown orders will be presented to seniors later during the school year. Dates to order a cap & gown, as well as graduation materials, will be determined later this school year. Seniors will receive their cap & gown orders during commencement practice, which will be Thursday, June 2.  

     

    Save the Dates*:

    We are almost to that time! Our staff is committed to supporting our students with their academic, social, and emotional needs. This year still holds many unknowns, but one thing is certain: We need each other. We will continue to focus on a rigorous academic curriculum through a continuous school improvement effort to provide a positive comprehensive high school experience. We share and embrace the district’s vision that all stakeholders will experience a welcoming and safe environment. It is our belief that every student has an opportunity and place in our schools. Stevenson High School strives to be a Community with Character, focusing on respectful interactions. Elements of mindfulness, grit, integrity, respect, empathy, confidence, and reflection are present.

    Additionally, we recognize the importance of forming a partnership with all stakeholders. Thank you for trusting your student’s education with us. Communication is important to the development and success of our students. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to any one of your student’s teachers, counselor, assistant principal, or myself regarding their educational experience at Stevenson.

    Looking forward to a GREAT year. Go Spartans!

    Sincerely,

    Pete Mazzoni

  • Spartan Update - Back to School

    Posted by Mr. Mazzoni on 8/18/2021 12:00:00 PM
    Dear Spartan Families,
     
    I hope that everyone has been able to relax and recharge during the summer months. As we move closer to the start of the 2021-22 school year, we continue to prepare for the return of our students to Stevenson High School. This year we are looking forward to welcoming all of our students back into the building and offering a full complement of academics, activities, and clubs.
     
    Back to School Packet Information
     
    Last Friday, the district sent an email about the information all families will need to update and confirm for all of their children enrolled in an LPS school. If you have not completed this online process, be sure to click on ParentConnect. I strongly encourage families to use a laptop or even a Chromebook to complete this process as opposed to using a smartphone.
     
    I would like to take a moment to say thank you to the many volunteers that helped with our Fall Clean-Up last Saturday. It was great to see so many Spartans on campus working as a team. We are grateful that we have the support of our community. 

    Please visit the SHS Communication Corner webpage for updates concerning back-to-school information. This page houses many of the forms that typically have been in our back-to-school packets.
