Nov. 6 - Early Release For Students For Staff Training On School Safety

Shelton School District cares deeply about the safety of students and staff.  On Friday, November 6th, students will be released 3 hours early so staff can attend a training put on by local law enforcement dealing with ‘active threats’ in schools.  This early release day is not scheduled on the district calendar, so parents should make a note of it.

Most are aware of the atrocities that have occurred in recent times at schools and colleges around the nation, where students and staff have been injured and lives have been lost.  Shelton School District will be increasing school safety planning and training efforts in a coordinated, well-planned fashion to keep students and staff as safe as possible.  The District will be working closely with law enforcement, the Department of Emergency Management, and other first responders in the county, as well as with students, staff and parents to be prepared for emergency situations in schools and to provide the safest learning and working environment possible.

The community is encouraged to contribute time, effort, or resources to the District’s school safety planning efforts.  For further information, call the District at 426-1687.

Oct 28 - An Open Community Forum on Wednesday

Shelton School District Superintendent Alex Apostle would like to invite parents and members of the community to an Open Community Forum scheduled for Wednesday, October 28th, from 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Oakland Bay Junior High.

This is the second of a series of monthly forums with an open agenda to allow an opportunity for community members to comment and ask questions regarding school district operations and programs. 

Shelton School District looks forward to your participation.
