We have new procedures at Shields and in the district this year regarding walking your student into the building in the mornings. 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!
To drop off your student during arrival, you will enter from Ovilla Road, just past the Nazarene Church, into the long driveway at the back of Shields. Please do not drop off students in front of the building. You must drop off in the back of the building. Students may not walk in the front doors by themselves. If you wish to walk your students to the front door, please find a parking spot.
To pick up your student at dismissal time, you will enter from Ovilla Road, just past the Nazarene Church, into the long driveway at the back of Shields. You will need your car sign visible in your front windshield. Staff members will call for your student, and students will be safely guided to your car. If you don't have your car sign, you will be asked to drive around to the front, park, and bring your ID to the office to sign your student out. Car signs will be given out at Meet the Teacher and during the first week of school.
