From the Principal’s Desk

Good Evening Generals,


Happy New Year! As we prepare for the start of the second semester, I would like to ensure that each scholar is equipped with the necessary tools for success. With this in mind, a survey was sent out to determine if your scholar has internet access and a device for Digital Learning Days. Preparation is certainly the key to success, and it is my goal to be ready for inclement weather or any unforeseen circumstances that may cause for a Digital Learning Day(s).


If you did not get an opportunity to complete the survey, please take a moment and complete it. This will allow us to know if your scholar needs a Chromebook and how you would like for your scholar to get it home. Even if your scholar does not need a Chromebook, please also complete the survey. It will take five minutes or less to complete. Chromebook Check Out Request SY 2021-2022: 2nd Semester Parent Questionnaire Link


Thank you for your continued support of Shiloh MS.


Kind regards,

Dr. Shantí Howard
