I hope you had a wonderful holiday season; although we had our share of snow and cold weather, hopefully you had the opportunity to spend time with family and friends, which always helps to warm the holiday spirit.  As we begin the second semester of the school year and head into 2018, this marks the sixth year in which the Shelby City School District calendar has allowed the first semester to conclude on the last day prior to Christmas break.  Ending the semester prior to break allows our staff and students to complete all of their course work before going on a two-week hiatus, and of course it also allows us to begin the new semester with a clean slate when we return in January.  Since we instituted this change in our calendar, the district has found that it is very beneficial from an academic perspective and well liked by students and staff; hopefully you will find it to your liking as well.

As we move into the winter months and the possibilities of inclement weather we will occasionally be faced with the decision to delay or cancel school.  Please understand that the safety and well-being of our students will always be the first and foremost factors in our decision making.

The second semester of this school year will be chocked full of student activities and performances.  Of course, Shelby has always been a community that comes out in full force to support its students and I look forward to seeing many of you at the various functions that dot our school calendar.  Until then, be safe, healthy and as always, go Whippets!
