Student Devices

If you have had a student move or withdraw from Sherwood this 1st quarter, please plan to return their device, case and charger to the Lara in the Learning Commons on Monday, October 17th.
Remember the process is that all devices are returned to the Learning Commons when students exit. Do not keep them in your classrooms. This allows us to inventory them and get them ready for any new students we receive throughout the school year.

November Election Updates

As the November election approaches, please remember these important points:

  • District employees should not advocate for or against a candidate during times when they should be performing district duties (in class with students or at a school event).
  • District resources cannot be used to advocate for or against a candidate. Examples include, but are not limited to, use of district phones, copiers, district email, school mailboxes, etc. If someone receives a campaign message on their district email, no violation has occurred as this cannot be prevented. Those addresses are created to allow the public to communicate with district officials. However, employees cannot use district-provided email, internet or computer resources to forward these messages to other persons.
  • Staff members should not send home information about candidates with students.
  • Staff members should not wear buttons, stickers or clothing containing information about candidates.
