Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Take time this week to send a "Thank You" to the outstanding teachers we have in Sheldon. We are blessed. Also, a special "Thank You" to all of the parents that are helping teach through our Continuous Learning Plan. Together - we are ORAB Strong!
Spring activities have been canceled. The State has indicated a decision on summer activities will occur by June 1. Other activities such as prom, summer theatre, driver’s education, and graduation are being discussed and additional information will be provided as available.
Due to Governor Reynolds announcement to extend school closure, Sheldon Schools will not be resuming in-person classes for the 2019-20 school year. The existing Continuous Learning Plan will remain in effect and teachers will continue to provide those learning opportunities.
Grab-n-Go Meal update: beginning Monday, April 13, meals will be served on Mondays and Thursdays. Mondays' bag will have 3 days meals and Thursdays bag will have 2 days meals. Still serving 11:30-12:30. Still 5 Sheldon locations, but Methodist Church location moving to City Park.
Due to new guidance from the State of Iowa, all city and school parks, playgrounds, and athletic facilities are closed effective 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 7th until Thursday, April 30th. Library services for the City and School District are restricted to curb-side pickup, which is unchanged from the way it was last week.
Governor Reynolds extended school closure in Iowa through April, so the earliest Sheldon Schools would resume school would be May 1. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available. Please know we miss our students and hope everyone is staying healthy. #orabstrong
