    SNOW MAKE-UP DAYS

    Due to the loss of instructional time caused by the snow closures in February, Shoreline Schools is adjusting the school calendar to meet the number of instructional hours required by the state.

    • June 3 will become a Full School Day.

    This day had previously been a scheduled Staff Work Day. • June 14 will become a Full School Day.

    This day had previously been a scheduled Half-Day Early Release

    • June 17, 18, and 19 will be Full School Days.
    • June 20 will be the anticipated Last Day of School with a Half Day Early Release at 11:45am.

    This plan allows us to meet our instructional time requirements and apply for one waiver day from the state.

    ENVISION MATH BOOKS AVAILABLE TO FAMILIES

    The school district has adopted a new math curriculum for next year called Bridges.  As a result, we are no longer in need of our old math books. We are offering all of the old curriculum to kids and families for free.  If you would like to have any of our books - teacher books, student books, etc., let your teacher know and we would be happy to send home with your child.
