  • The first day of school is fast approaching.

    *Please help us make it a smooth as possible for you and your child!  Classroom teachers need to know your child's end of the day routine.  It may be different the first day or two of school, but it is important that we have the information in writing

    *Please send a note with your student the first day with his/her after school bus number or walker's information.  If this changes, please send it again in writing to your child's teacher. 

    This is a handy note to use to communicate with us here at Shepherdstown Elementary.  Thank you for your help in making our Back to School a great one!

    To be eligible for early Kindergarten entrance, the child must score at or above the ninety fifth percentile on a standardized comprehensive measure of developmental skills when compared to age norms appropriate to a child who would be 5 years old prior to September 1.  This assessment will be administered by qualified Jefferson County personnel.  To enroll a child born between those dates, please contact the Pupil Services Department at 304-728-9236.

     

    1. Please bring an original State Certified Birth Certificate with the State Seal, as per requirement of WV state law.
