Mr. Lasiter Certainly 2020 is going to go down as a year to remember. The highlight of 2020 for me is definitely the first ever SHS Outdoor Graduation that included an amazing fireworks show. Though we have many challenges associated with COVID-19, our outstanding staff and hard working students are facing those challenges. Together we will get through this!

MR. LASITER The COVID-19 Pandemic is unlike anything we have witnessed in our lifetime. So many things in our lives have been affected in an effort to stop the spread of this highly contagious virus. I am so proud of the way that Slocum ISD principals, teachers, and staff have worked together during these challenging times to help provide our students with the best resources they can. There have been so many selfless acts of service provided already to make all of this work. Even in the difficult times, IT IS GREAT TO BE A MUSTANG!

MR. LASITER SCHOOL SAFETY: The safety of all of our students is of extreme importance. It is so important to stay alert and report things that could be a potential risk. Students, parents, employees and community members all have a part in keeping our school safe. With that being said: IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING! Report suspicious activity to local law enforcement or to school officials. Let's work together in keeping our school and our community a safe place.

MRS. DEER Once again we've had a busy start to the school year! Academic UIL is prepping, SJH basketball has started, and SHS hosted the first cross country meet of the year. The students, and teachers, have settled in and are finishing the first three weeks of school already. Fun times! I look forward to the academic growth of all students and meeting the challenges of the school year head on. We expect great accomplishments from our students and will help them succeed along the way..
