Hello Shumate Families,
We want to begin this final SMS Family update of the 2020/21 school year by thanking our students and families for helping to fill this unconventional year with a wealth of positive learning experiences. As we look ahead into next school year, we will offer five full days of school and will also offer our outstanding Lakeshore Virtual School Program. We look forward to seeing everyone on September 7th!
Please see below for information about the coming week and beyond.
