Shepherd Elementary is a uniform school. Students are expected to wear any navy or white short, pant, skirt, shirt or skort. Students can also wear Shepherd t-shirts/sweatshirts any day in place of navy and white shirts.

Please send your child to school in sneakers as much as possible to preserve the beautiful new gymnasium floor.
