Attention Parents! Your child needs to be in school when school day begins, at 8:25 AM, to be able to practice or participate in any extra curricular activity that day. Scheduled appointments are excused.
Late Start on Wednesdays - IF Sheldon Community Schools have a late start on a Wednesday, Teacher Professional Development will be cancelled and school will dismiss at 3:25. Middle School athletic practices will then be held after school rather than before school.
Weather Related Announcements - Weather related announcements will be given over the radio station KIWA, 1550 AM and 105.3 FM, Sheldon, as well as regional radio stations. They are also posted on the KIWA website, kiwaradio.com. These announcements will be given as early as possible.
Driver's Permit - Missing school to get a driver's permit is considered an UNexcused absence. If you have a student planning to take the permit test, please plan it around school time.
