Hi Shepherd families,

I hope you all enjoyed this long fall weekend and took time to rest, relax, and have fun. Ms. Rottman and I have been filling out templates, attending webinars, visiting classroom simulations and thinking through logistics for November 9th. We hope to have more information to share this week. In the meantime, please read the following items carefully and respond if applicable. Your responses will assist our planning.

With gratitude,


Parent Portal

DCPS is activating Parent Portal for families to view student attendance and receive published report cards starting with Term 1. Please respond to this email only if you do not want Portal Access. If you agree to participate, you will receive an email the first week of November with information on how to login and use Parent Portal to view 1st Semester grades.

Siblings with Different Last Names

If your family has siblings with different last names, please let us know their names immediately. This will help us plan live instruction since DCPS is striving to keep siblings together if they are physically in school.
