NTI (SnowGO) Plan:
Whenever snow is in the forecast from this point forward, there is always a possibility that we will be implementing a NTI (SnowGo) Day for students and teachers. If the district decides to implement the plan, media outlets will indicate it as “Shelby County Public Schools will be operating under the SnowGo Plan. There will be no classes on campus.” Meaning there will be school work and learning going on from 9:00am - 2:00 through the Chromebooks on Schoology. Please click on this link to view more information regarding the SnowGO plan.
We Want To Know!
Science Class in Need:
I am looking to begin a collection of old pots and pans (preferably sauce pans), spoons, measuring cups & potholders that we can use for food labs in chemistry/science (as it is not preferable to make test tube rice krispies). If you have any old supplies like this laying around, I would love to take them off your hands! Please drop off donations to Leesa Stivers or email me at Leesa.Stivers@shelby.kyschools.us if you need me to pick the items up.
