Safe and Sober Prom Guidelines (A message from our Police Department)
As prom and graduation season rapidly approach, it's important for teens to consider celebrating safely and for parents to be aware of the risks of teens driving under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or while drowsy or distracted. The links below can help guide a conversation between parents and teens, and can help identify the risks and consequences to teens regarding drug and alcohol use, and driving while impaired.
Driving Under the Influence
Viking Closet and Project Graduation Fundraiser
For the 4th consecutive year, Duchess Florals will be supporting two SBHS organizations. When you purchase your prom flowers from Duchess Florals, they will donate 10% of the purchase to Project Graduation and The Viking Closet (to be divided equally among both causes).
Visit Dutchess Florals at their website starting April 1, 2017 to order corsages and/or boutonnieres online or make an appointment to check them out. You can contact them at www.duchessflorals.com or (732) 943-3338.
Professional Photographs of Events and Athletics Available
If your child has been involved in a school event or sport, professional photographs are available for purchase. This includes senior individuals and team photos for sports. Please visit https://lorsstudio.smugmug.com/SouthBrunswickHS/School-Year-20162017 and browse through hundreds of photos. Photos can be purchased in a variety of sizes and make for wonderful keepsakes. Upcoming prom candids will be posted to this site as well. A portion of the proceeds benefits the SBHS yearbook program.
Student Loan Information
For many years the New Jersey Higher Education Student Assistance Authority (HESAA) has prepared a Student Loan Guide to be distributed to New Jersey high school students. In January 2013 legislation was passed by the New Jersey Legislature and signed into law by Governor Christie requiring HESAA to prepare a similar brochure and directing high schools to annually disseminate it to each student in the 11th and 12th grades.
In accordance with N.J.S.A. 18A:71A-35, please see the Student Loan Guide e-booklet link below and a new tool, The Student Loan Game Plan.
