Remember tomorrow is iPad collection day for all in-person students at Shields. If you were issued a brick and cord, please return them as well. You can help with collection by bagging the iPad with the cords/bricks (if you received a brick and cord in the fall) and putting the student's name and teacher's name on the bag. Summer school students are still turning in iPads and cords to be inspected. They will receive another iPad back in time for summer school! Thanks for your help in this process.

Young 5s and Kindergarten Registration is just around the corner. We will be having our registration day on March 4th from 9:00-6:00. To get a feel for how many families are out there we have this "Pre-registration Survey" . https://forms.gle/TnSLQ2oYhSRTAVAr6 ***This survey does not register your child in any way, it just gives us a feel for how many people are interested and where the students are coming from!!*** Due to social distancing needs, we will be having families sign up for times to come to the school to register. We will be holding the event in the gym. You can sign up for a time here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080D4BACA72AABF49-young1 We have registration packets ready to be picked up in the office during school hours at this time. That way families can have them completed even before coming in for registration day. Schools of Choice/Open Enrollment starts on Monday of that week, so there will be SOC forms available on our website that Monday or at the registration event. These are time sensitive documents, so they need to be filled out during the Open Enrollment time period. If you are unable to attend that day, please reach out to the Shields office to make arrangements otherwise. Shields Office: 989-921-4701 Please remember 2 proofs of residency, birth certificate and immunization records!! We hope to have a great turnout and look forward to meeting future some future Vikings!!

Canned Food Drive PAJAMA DAY! Any student who brings in 2 or more food items on Friday, November 6th can wear their PAJAMAS! (Most needed items include canned fruit, cereal, and pasta but all canned/boxed items are appreciated.) Only one day left of our food drive. Please help us make it the most successful day yet! Thank you for your support and generosity!
Shields Parents/Guardians, Tomorrow is the first day with no Havens students riding the buses. We ask that you still have your bus riders out at the stops at the normally scheduled time, but please be patient as the timing for the routes may be slightly different. It will normalize over the next few days as drivers get acclimated to the routes. Thanks ahead of time for your patience during this trying time.
