Sherwood Schools: District Updates
Updates and Announcements from the Sherwood School District
May 8, 2020
Thank you Sherwood Community for Recognizing our Staff!
Construction Update: Transformation Schools
During the last two weeks of April, District staff worked very hard to pack up all schools, and this week we have moved everything out of all construction zones. Construction begins on Monday, May 11 at the current high school (to become Sherwood Middle School), Hopkins (to become the new District Office) and Laurel/Edy Ridge (to become Ridges Elementary). Construction continues to progress at SMS (to become Hawks View Elementary) and the new high school. You will begin to notice construction activity increasing throughout the District next week.
A huge thanks to all of our staff for their amazing work packing buildings and returning student items to families!
