Groundbreaking Ceremony - June 12, 2018

The Sherwood School District is excited to invite families, students, and community members to save the date to celebrate with us as we break ground for construction of the new Sherwood High School!  For more information, visit the community invitation here.

Low Balance Email Alerts

The school meal program uses an automated email to alert households of their students low meal account balance.  If the balance of your student meal account falls into the negative or low balance threshold, the parent/guardian will receive an automated notification by email.  Please be aware of emails coming from this address,

The Intent of this procedure is to ensure financial management of the Nutrition Services Program.  This procedure is intended to be proactive for parents with an emphasis on minimizing student responsibility for their student meal account balance.  If you are having trouble receiving these emails, please verify your preferred email contact with the school office.


Senior Awards Assembly

ONLY parents of seniors (no extended family) may attend the Senior Awards Assembly on Friday, June 8th, at 8:10 am.  All senior parents must sign in at the Main Office and are required to sit in the senior section of the gym.

2018 Yearbook

Have you purchased your student's 2018 yearbook?  Buy one now to guarantee your student gets a yearbook this year.  Only 300 books remain! Yearbooks are $65 and payments can be made on Synergy or with Debi Bear.  Books will be distributed during lunch on Friday, June 8th.

Medication Pick-up

Parents, please pick-up any leftover medication for your students prior to 3:00 pm on Friday, June 15th.  Medication not picked up will be discarded.

Survival Packets

Final exams are rapidly approaching!  Send your favorite student a message of encouragement with a Final Exam Survival Package.  Click here for the final Exam Survival Package Order Form or pick one up in the Main Office.  Orders are due to the Main Office no later than Tuesday, June 12th. We are unable to provide Survival Packages to current seniors this trimester.
