Dear Shepherd Families, We are excited to announce our learning options for this Fall. Today, you may sign up for one of these options: Option 1: Face to Face- This means that your student will be attending school Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Wednesday will be a virtual day at your home. Option 2: Bluejay Online- This option means that your student will receive their instruction at your home via a computer each day. A computer will be supplied to your child. The survey opens today and will close on Wednesday, August 19th at 3:00. If you do not make a selection, we will assume your child is attending "Option 1- Face to Face". Please refer to each school's website for more information about each option. You may call your building if you have additional questions. We look forward to learning with your child soon! Shepherd Public Schools https://forms.gle/vnYst38mVhX1HseV8
