Believe Kids

Believe Kids is our ONLY school wide fundraiser! Your student(s) will come home with a catalog from Believe Kids this week. Please take the time to look through the catalog, purchase if you’d like and invite your child(ren) to reach out to family and friends to make purchases and offer their support to Sherrod Elem.

Students who sell even one (1) item will be eligible for a prize.

Thank you for supporting our school!


Absent Students

Reporting absences is vital in keeping school OPEN! We need your help! If your child is absent for the day or part of the day, please call 761-4100 and report your child's absence!

It's super easy to report an absence through the Synergy PARENTVUE App. When using the app, please be sure to note the reason for absence along with the absent code.

It is super important that EVERY absence is reported. Thank you for helping us maintain accountability for all absences!

Virtue of the Week

The virtue of the week is CLEANLINESS. Each week classes will select a student of the week who has demonstrated the week's virtue. Those students will be part of the morning show on Fridays.

Cleanliness means washing often, keeping your body clean, and wearing clean clothes. It is putting into your body and your mind only the things that keep you healthy. It is staying free from harmful drugs. It is cleaning up mistakes and making a fresh start.

Congratulations to last week's Students of the Week! Great job exhibiting the virtue of JOYFULNESS! Way to go Glacier Bears!!

Your child need to be kept at home if they are exhibiting any of the following symptoms:

  • fever/chills cough
  • shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
  • congestion/runny nose
  • sore throat
  • new loss of taste or smell
  • nausea/vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • headache
  • muscle/joint/body aches
  • or fatigue.

Any of these symptoms listed may be symptoms of COVID-19. Please contact your health care provider and follow their guidance; they may want to test your child for COVID-19.

There are certain criteria that must be met before your child can come back to school after having any of these symptoms. Please contact Nurse Dana at 907-761-4103 or to discuss the plan for returning to school.

As always, other contagious illnesses or conditions such as conjunctivitis (pink eye) or head lice must be communicated to the school prior to returning.
