How do I become an SHS student?

Getting a Driver’s License?
Any high school student under 18 years of age who wants to get their drivers permit or license, must submit a form verifying that they are currently enrolled in school. Students can obtain this certification from the Records Office at SHS. The Registrar needs a MINIMUM of one-day’s notice to process the enrollment form.
How does the cafeteria work?
Lunches can be purchased individually or in advance. Checks should be made out to 4J Food Service or you can pay online. Menus are available online at www.sodexhoeducation.com. If you are interested in applying for reduced-price meals. Please call the Main Office.
I have questions about the dress code, campus hours, cell phone policy, visitors on campus, and more.

Is there a school nurse?
District 4J operates a school-based health center at Sheldon High School. The center is staffed with a school nurse, health clerk, a nurse practitioner, and a mental health therapist. The nurse practitioner can prescribe and treat acute and chronic illness. Physicals and immunizations are also available, as are mental health services from mental health therapists. Go to the HEALTH CENTER page.
