Mr. Spencer’s phone message to Shiloh families on 1/12/18:
Hello Shiloh families, this is Mr. Spencer with a few announcements. First, thank you for a very smooth first week back at school after our winter break. Our teachers lost no time in getting back into their daily routines of doing their very best to help your children to be successful learners. Likewise, our students did a great job as well this week in getting back into their routine. As a staff, we move ahead into this second half of the year with great excitement and optimism for the weeks and months ahead.
Please remember that students will not have school on Monday, January 15 for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Holiday. Report cards will go home with all students on Wednesday, January 17.
Please remember that our next Early Release Day will be February 7 and our final Early Release Day of the year will be March 7. As you know, buses will run and lunches will be served on the Early Release Days and students will be dismissed at 11. Please have both dismissal and transportation plans in place for your children on those days. Also, please be sure that you have plans in place for your children in the event that UCPS has an unplanned early school dismissal due to weather or other factors. In those cases, it is very important for us to know how your child will go home. Please be sure to communicate those unplanned early dismissal plans to our teachers.
Thank you and have a good night!
Shiloh families: We have two more planned Early Release Days for the year on February 7 and March 7. Please be sure that you have dismissal plans in place for your children on those days. Also, please make sure that your child’s teacher has dismissal plans for your child in the event that there is an unplanned early dismissal from school. Thank you.
Shiloh families: Please note that Report Cards will go home with students on Wednesday, January 17.
