Dear Shiner ISD Family,
UPDATED INFORMATION - On Friday, April 17th Governor Abbott closed school buildings for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year.  Shiner ISD will continue to provide the best possible educational option for the remainder of the school year.  Please note the change in breakfast/lunch pick up times that have changed below.  We moved the time to coincide with the packet pick up time on Mondays.  If you have any questions, please reach out to your campus principal. Campus principals are available from 8-11:30am and 12:30-3pm daily.  
 
NON QUALIFIER PRE-K (PAID Pre-K) - Shiner ISD has made the decision to reduce the cost for the last two months of the school year for non qualifying Pre-K students.  Your April payment for Pre-K will count for April and May.  Shiner ISD will continue to provide instructional support during the last two months.  If you have already paid through May, please contact the administration building to set up a refund for the month of May.  If you have not paid for April yet, please do so asap.
 
Below is current information about our processes to provide food and instruction. Also make sure to note some frequently asked questions found to the right on this page.
 
1. Breakfast & Lunch - For students in need, Shiner ISD will provide daily breakfast and lunch food service. Parents need to request food service no later than 8am the day of service by emailing Mrs. Nevlud at nevludg@shinerisd.net.  Service will begin Tuesday, March 24, 2020, and will run daily from 8:30am-9:30am.  Students will receive a breakfast and a lunch, and this service is available for all children up to 18 years of age. This is a to-go service, and therefore will not follow the posted March lunch menu.  The pick up location will be on the backside of the school building, out of the back door to the cafeteria.  Follow the main drive all the way down and then left around the back of the school.
 
2. Instruction - Shiner ISD will provide pickup and drop off services for school work beginning this Thursday, March 26th.  Parents/students can drive through under the silo from 7am-8:30am or from 5pm-6:30pm.  After Thursday, pickup and drop off will happen each Monday (or first day of the week) while we work through the closure. The deadline to turn in previous week's work is by 6:30pm the following Monday. If you would prefer, work can be emailed to parents or students grades 4-12.  Going paperless is the most efficient way, but we will have the ability to meet each families needs.  You can also find assigned school work at the bottom of this page.
 
3. Student Emails - a student Google/email account has been created for all 4th-12th grade students. This is a great tool to provide work and receive completed work from students.  This is also a great tool to provide the best communication possible to students and parents. The student email consists of each student's first name+last initial+graduation year @student.shinerisd.net.  The password is the first for letters of your last name and the last four digits of your student ID.  Example for Alex Remschel (sample/not real): email address:  alexr20@student.shinerisd.net & password:  rems4327.  Though it may not look like it, these are Google accounts, and can be accessed via Gmail in a web browser or the Gmail app on your device.  You can find more info on using Gmail here.  If you have any problems, please contact your teacher asap.
 
4. Technology Tips for Parents & Students: check out our help pages for Google Classroom and more Tech Tips
 
Keep an eye on the Shiner ISD News section for the latest updates during this time.
Communicate with your teacher.  We have band instruments, art supplies, etc.... that students can use at home.
It is important for all students to devote appropriate time to complete assignments on a daily basis.  Parents creating a daily schedule for their SISD student is important to student success.
Remote learning is not the same for every student in Shiner ISD or across the state. The SISD staff understands these issues. It is vital for all students to stay on top of work sent home to make sure they do not fall behind. When it comes to high school courses and GPA, we may have to make a decision on a cutoff date for grades earlier than the disrupted 5th and 6th six weeks. The last completed six weeks was the 4th six weeks.  We will communicate with the TEA to make sure we are making all decisions in the best interest of students.
You student has been given a Shiner ISD email account to use for distance learning and other school purposes.  They can send and receive email from teachers and staff at Shiner ISD only at this time. 
Currently, the end of the closure is set for April 3, 2020. We are preparing to be ready in case the State of Texas extends school closures.
Under the current closure, yes.  It ends on April the 3rd.  If the state extends the closure, we will have to make decisions at that time.  We are at the mercy of decisions made by the commissioner of education. We will be prepared for either situation.
Currently, all UIL events are cancelled until May. We will keep everyone posted.  It is important for students to stay sharp and ready for a return to any type of competition.
