During the afternoon route, the driver of Bus 11 overheard a student make a concerning statement to another student. They immediately informed the school resource officer and administration, and the bus stopped at the intermediate school. Two students were interviewed and exited the bus. Their parents were notified of the situation. The rest of the students are safe and on their way home.
Students, teachers, and families should report any possible threat or concern to the right authorities. We appreciate the students and the bus driver who reported the situation promptly, enabling the authorities to respond quickly.
How to Report a Concern
If you observe any suspicious activity or have any concerns, report them immediately to the school administration or the police. For non-urgent concerns, you may use the “See Something, Say Something” form, which you can find at www.snyderisd.net/safety

We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday season! Staff, we will see you on Monday, January 8th and students, we will see you on Tuesday, January 9th!
With Christmas falling on a Monday this year, we know it gives little time for staff and families to travel and prepare for the holiday. I’ve spoken with board members and principals, and we’ve determined our Friday activities can be shifted to accommodate a little extra time off. Therefore, schools will dismiss early on Friday, December 22, 2023.
I want to thank our staff and students for their work this fall semester, and I look forward to an even better Spring. We still have important work to do in school. Let’s finish the year strong: be present daily and make the most of every moment.

To help students in our community this holiday season, SJHS students are holding a food drive to collect food items over the next few weeks. Each day for 12 days, a certain item from the Blessings in a Bag’s wish list will be collected and donated. Please see the calendar below to find out which items are requested on which days. Feel free to substitute other items if you don’t have something on the calendar. The WIN class that brings the most items will earn $100 in SJH Cash daily.
Students will deliver items to their WIN teacher.
