Parent SHIELD Portal

As we prepare for our next session of SHIELD testing (10.15), please review this document for Parent SHIELD Portal. This document will help you access your child's SHIELD results the day after testing. Please know, if your child tests positive from the SHIELD testing, you will receive a call from District 203 staff notifying you of the results and next steps to support your child. As always, if you have any questions, please reach out directly to Elmwood's front office.
