Athletics Department

Interscholastic athletics at Shepherd Public Schools are considered to be an extension of the physical education program, and in turn, an integral part of the overall educational program of the school.

As part of the educational program, each individual sport will be conducted so that the physical, social, and mental well-being of each student is its top priority. Each athlete should understand that participation in Shepherd athletics is a privilege that should be held with high regard.
