Henry D. Sheldon High School
This year Sheldon High School will be going through an accreditation process that occurs every five years for schools. The process involves a school wide self-assessment in preparation for a visit by the AdvancEd external review team in the spring. We look forward to having a wide range of input from staff, students, and parents as we gather information about SHS programs and processes that lead to continuous school improvement. (more…)

4J schools were closed due to snow and ice for four days in December. The school calendar has been adjusted so that students will not lose any school days as a result of the weather and the three trimesters will be balanced in length.
The snow days will be made up on days previously scheduled to be furlough days: March 31, April 17 and 18, and May 23. The end of the second trimester and the no-school days for grading, professional development and planning have been postponed by one week. (more…)
