BlueJay Families, Reminder that tomorrow, April 1 (NOT April Fools) we are starting the parking lot shift on a trial basis. All loop traffic, (car drop off and pickup) will enter as usual and continue through the loop and exit, following the barricades. If you are parking, you will enter via the "current exit" and then exit in the aisle closest to 4th St. Video Explanation: https://bit.ly/ParkingvideoSPS PDF: https://bit.ly/ShepherdParking

Tonight's Boys Basketball Regional game has been pushed back to a 7:30 start time. The following information is from the MHSAA - Your BLUE ticket is good for the Shepherd vs Powers Catholic game ONLY. Game one – Saginaw vs Arthur Hill – is sold out. Game two fans will not be admitted until the conclusion of game one. Game one starts at 5:30. There are plenty of seats available for your game, so there is no need to arrive early. In order to have a smooth transition between games and give fans plenty of time to exit and enter the arena, the game two starting time has been adjusted to 7:30.

The 65th annual Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival will be here before we know it and preparations to make it a safe and enjoyable experience for all is an ongoing effort. As many of you are aware, BOGO Buddy Night (buy one get one free Thursday only) has grown to be an extremely popular and, therefore, overly crowded evening. The uptick in attendance has forced us to make some changes to aid in crowd control and to ensure the safety of all who attend. In collaboration with Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival, Shepherd Police Department, Shepherd Public Schools and Elliott‘s Amusements LLC, the following changes have been made: ● The BOGO offer, for Thursday, April 25, will be available to Shepherd Public Schools students only. Must present coupon to redeem offer ● It’s not a requirement that the “Buddy” be a SPS student ● The website will no longer show the BOGO offer on Thursday ● No more than one coupon per student is allowed ● Coupons will be distributed to the following buildings the third week of April ○ Shepherd Elementary - Friday Folders ○ Winn Elementary - Friday Folders ○ Shepherd Middle School - SOAR classrooms ○ Shepherd High School - Office ○ Odyssey Middle/High School - Office
