Today is iPad/Packet distribution day at Shields. Remember to keep social distancing norms!! Staying in your car in the drop-off and bus loops is the preferred method. We will approach your cars! Set Times for pickup are: Y5- 10:00 Kindergarten- 11:00 1st- 12:00 2nd- 1:00 Mixed Times- 2:00 If you changed your mind about getting an iPad or if there is a mistake, we will likely ask you to park while we rectify the issue. It does take a few minutes to locate and pull information to issue an iPad. Letting your teacher know by email or SeeSaw of any changes this morning will help to expedite us being able to make the changes. Thanks for all your patience ahead of time!! We look forward to seeing you later!!!
