We have new procedures at Shields and in the district this year regarding walking your student into the building in the mornings. During the first week of school, all parents and guardians are welcome to walk their children into the building and to their child's classroom, after signing in at the office. Beginning the second week of school, parents will be welcome to walk in the front doors, but we ask that the students walk themselves to their classrooms. Parents will be allowed to walk the students into the foyer, but students will walk to the gym (before 7:30 am) or to their classrooms (after 7:30 am) by themselves. If your child needs extra assistance, we will have several staff members available. We thank you for helping to foster independence in your child!
