Due to a gap in provider support, we are not able to process online lunch payments at this time. Parents can still send lunch funds via cash or check with their students. We hope to be up and running with our new system within the next couple weeks. Thank-you for your patience regarding this matter.
Due to construction delays, bus 16, 17, 18, and 19 are running behind schedule this afternoon. We apologize for the inconvenience.
SES is aware of the train derailment near U.S. 52 and SR 9. We have been in contact with emergency personnel at the scene. There is no danger or risk to our students associated with this derailment. Due to some road closures, bus #20, bus #19, and bus # 25 will need to be modified this afternoon and may run late. Parents who live in closed off areas near the accident scene should contact the school to make altnerate arrangements for pickup this afternoon. Thank you.
Due to heavy fog in parts of our district, Shelby Eastern Schools will be operating on a 2-hr. delay today, Tuesday, August 17th.
SES Families, Thanks for a great first 2 weeks of school! Please find the bi-weekly COVID data report linked below. https://5il.co/x5fu

Remember, today is early release Wednesday!
We are so excited to welcome your students back into our classrooms tomorrow, Wednesday, August 4th! Here are a couple of important reminders for the first day of school: • Because of the current Federal mandate, masks are still required to be worn on School Buses. • Since tomorrow is a Wednesday, it will be an early release day. That means dismissal will be 30 minutes earlier than usual. If your student rides a School Bus, they will be at their afternoon stop about half an hour earlier than usual. • Parents of PreK, Kindergarten, and 1st Graders should be present at the bus stop in the afternoon. • Students attending Morristown Elementary School Developmental Pre-School will be in school on Wednesdays this school year - this is a change from previous years. Welcome back!
Need help with account resets or extra guidance through the online registration process? We will have two additional in-person registration assistance sessions at each campus next week. On Monday and Wednesday, our Technology Team will be setup in the WHS Computer Lab between 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM. On Tuesday and Thursday, our Technology Team will be setup in the MHS Computer Lab between 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM. Online registration continues for parents not needing assistance. Log into your PowerSchool account (** not your student's account **) and select "Forms" on the left-hand Navigation bar. Please be sure to register your child as soon as possible in order to avoid delays receiving your child's Transportation Schedule.
IMPORTANT TRANSPORTATION NOTES: Yesterday, Alternate Transportation Request Forms were e-mailed to all parents requesting one via online registration. We will conduct another sweep for requests from new online registrations early next week. Those who requested the forms in May through the School Bus Ridership Survey should have received the forms on May 27th. Be sure to check your spam box. 🚨 Alternate Transportation Request Forms are due NOW. Please return all completed forms through one of the following methods: ➡️ E-mail: email@example.com ➡️ Fax: (765) 544-2247 ➡️ In person to your child's school - please note if you wait until "Back to School" events to turn in these forms, your request may not be approved in time for the first day of school. 🚨 Again, Alternate Transportation Request Forms are due NOW as we complete route updates for the 2021-2022 School Year. You can download and print the Alternate Transportation Request Form online from the Transportation Department's webpage: https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/986853/Alternate_Transportation_Request_Form_-_2020-2021.pdf ⚠️ If you have not registered your child online and need transportation services, please do so as soon as possible. Subscription e-mails will be sent out next week for Stopfinder in order for parents to view their child's Transportation Schedules. This process is dependent on an updated Primary E-mail Address being listed in PowerSchool. While few changes have occurred to our bus routes since last school year, it is important we have the time to review all student data and allow our School Bus Drivers the opportunity to complete dry runs. All transportation-related questions can be directed to Katrina at firstname.lastname@example.org. 🚌
