Exclusion Day: February 16th is the exclusion day. Students who have not received required immunizations, or a nonmedical/ medical exemption before the start of school on February 16th will be excluded from school until providing documentation of the receipt of immunization(s), or a nonmedical/medical exemption. Please contact Allison Kopp if you have questions.


January is School Board Recognition Month. Sue Hekker, Abby Hawkins, Jessica Adamson, Krista Thorne, and Duncan Nyang’Oro make up the Sherwood School District’s Board of Directors. These parents and community members volunteer countless hours each month guiding the direction and policies of our District, helping to ensure it is a great place for all kids. If you see a Board member this month, please take a moment to thank them for their service.
