Wildcat Families:
Today marks the last day of the 1st marking period.
During November, Shelby Junior High will distribute reports cards electronically.  The first marking period grades will be sent electronically to families at the end of the day on Monday, November 7, 2022.

To receive the report cards, parents must have a secure PowerSchool account. Parents who do not have access to a PowerSchool account will need to register for one prior to Tuesday, November 1, 2022. The report cards will then be automatically e-mailed to the address that is used to register the PowerSchool account.  If you already have a PowerSchool account, you do not need to take any further action. The report card will be automatically sent to you.

Please note: If you have a child in elementary school, those report cards will be issued at the end of the day on Thursday, November 17, 2022, after scheduled parent-teacher conferences.

Dates to remember:

Reporting Your Child's Absence

How to Report an Absence
When a student is going to be absent, parents/guardians should report the absence before the school day begins. Calls to the attendance line can be made 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Shelby Attendance Line is 586-797-3799.  Absences will be input to PowerSchool by 4:00 pm on the date of the absence.
Per UCS policy, the following reasons for an absence will be accepted as an excused absence; student illness, hospitalization, doctor ordered bed rest, mandatory court appearance that has been pre-arranged, death in the immediate family, family vacation that has been pre-arranged and approved, medical appointments and administrative permission. All other absences will be unexcused. 
Pre-approved absence forms can be obtained in the counseling office, the main office or in Schoology.
