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.
Dear Parents/Guardians, Starting Monday November 2nd, students at both Havens and Shields will be required to wear masks during the day at all times, except while eating. Thank you for your continued support, patience, and understanding.
Viking Nation: Today is HOMECOMING 2020! We will be promoting our Homecoming festivities LIVE on our District Facebook page from 3:00pm - 5:00pm. Wear your purple and watch the Homecoming Court Robing Ceremony, Parade and Crowing of the 2020 Homecoming Queen and King. "Once a Viking, Always a Viking!"
9/27 Dear Swan Valley families, We are writing to update you on the recent change in regards to masks for elementary students. The Governor recently put forth an EO that states that beginning October 5th elementary students (including Young 5s students) will have to wear masks in the classroom not just upon entry, dismissal, and in common areas. Therefore, beginning October 5th our SV elementary students will be required to wear them within their classrooms as well. Students will not be required to wear them when we are outdoors for recess. The link to the EO can be found here : https://bit.ly/3kSD0kp or by searching for Executive Order 2020-185
A Special Thank You to community member and schools supporter Meijer!!! A large donation of cleaning wipes was delivered yesterday at Shields!!!
Reminder about Changes To Morning Routine: Starting Today: Entrance Time Change: ***We are going to open doors at 8:15. Entrance Location Change: ***For all kindergarten students (except Workman) there is no change. Kindergarten parents/guardians, please still pull up to the last flag to fit as many cars in the loop as possible. *** All Other Students*** Car riding students can now enter the alleyway doors after the initial bus rush. Parents, when you see that the buses are gone from our bus loop, please pull your car all the way up next to the gym. This will help with traffic (as cars can pull up much farther in the loop) and allow students to get into the building even faster. We will have extra hands down there to help since it will be new to some of the students. Thanks ahead of time for pulling up as far forward as possible before dropping off your students!!!!!
