Shepard Elementary

Welcome Back!

I am so excited to have everyone back in the building and ready to go for our students! It is going to be a fabulous second semester.

Until Kristin returns, feel free to come see me with any questions. If I don't know the answer, I will call until I find out! Dee and I are in the process of getting me access to approve PO's and absences, which will help things move along smoothly.

This month we will have our once monthly fire drill, but January also has a required lockdown drill. Make sure to review procedures with your students and double check that all students who are new to Shepard understand the procedures for various drills.

2. Update all Tier 2 and Tier 3 documentation in Edugence.

3. Make sure you have completed all SafeSchools classes. See screenshot below for the courses that are due by December 20th. Kate will be running an updated report this week to verify who has not completed their courses.
