Shepard Staff Updates

April 5, 2019

To Do and Thank You

To Do (New):

1. Check the schedule for next Tuesday and Wednesday to make sure you have a clear understanding of how things will work on our STAAR days.

2. Remind parents that the school will be closed for lunch/volunteers next week.

3. Make sure that you are wearing your badge in a visible place and checking that your grade level doors are locked everyday (The auditor may walk around to check this on April 15th).


To Do (Old):

1. Get ready for data digs.

2. Make sure your personal trade hours are all updated and in MLP. Every staff member scheduled to work on November 19th and April 22nd should have 7.5 personal and 7.5 campus trade hours.


Thank You:
1. Great job to Dana Sosebee and ALL of the first grade students/teachers for a fantastic performance!
