UPDATE ON THE SPRING BAND CONCERT! Our Spring Band Concert will be taking place on Friday, April 30th at 7pm! Please note the time change from 6pm to 7pm - this was done to help accommodate students' schedules. Our concert will be on the soccer field... bring a chair and/or a blanket for an evening of music. Our bands haven't performed in over a year! We will be collecting donations throughout the concert. Any little bit helps... the band hasn't had a fundraiser all year and our two largest fundraising events (Homecoming and the Holiday Band Craft Fair) did not occur. Please consider donating! Since this is an outdoor event, we are able to host up to 300 people. As a result, we will not be limiting the number of people students invite to attend. However, in order to attend the concert, masks and distancing are required by all! Hope to see you there!! 🎶
Our third bond community forum will be taking place on Tuesday, April 27th at 6pm. Please see the attached flyer for more information. Thank you!

The Shelby Adolescent Health Center is committed to providing medical and mental health services to the adolescent population in Oceana County. In addition to routine clinic appointments, COVID-19 testing was added as an available service. At this time, the clinic is unable to keep up with the demand for COVID-19 testing. In order to continue providing both medical services and COVID-19 testing, the following adjustments will be made to the COVID-19 testing availability. Thank you for your understanding in this evolving scenario. The Shelby Adolescent Health Center has rapid COVID-19 testing available for students and staff members of Oceana county schools. To qualify for testing, they must meet one of the following criteria: • The student/staff must have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, body aches, headache, sore throat, congestion, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or new loss of sense of taste/smell). • The student/staff must have been in close contact (less than 6ft for more than 15 minutes) of a known COVID-19 case. • The student has received a positive rapid antigen test from an athletic screening. Testing is available by appointment only. Parents may choose to have their child seen inside the SAHC for a health evaluation by our NP or tested at your vehicle. School staff will be seen at your vehicle. Please call us at 231-902-8550 with questions or to schedule. Thank you.
