Shackelford Tardy Policy

Tardy Policy

Our approach for encouraging our students to be punctual:

  • Students are expected to be in the classroom when the bell rings (not running into the room, etc.)
  • Teachers will close their door when the bell rings. Tardy students will wait quietly for the teacher to allow them entry (within a minute or so).
  • Consequences for tardies are posted outside of classroom doors. To see a copy of this, look in the Links section of this web page.
  • Students will sign a tardy log as they enter the room, and will be marked "tardy" on TEAMS, our electronic attendance system. This is also the system we use for grades. Parents and students have access to view attendance/grades at any time through Parent Self-Serve and Student Self-Serve. If you see that your child has several tardies to a particular class, please contact the teacher for more information.

Class time is precious; please help us encourage our students to be punctual!

ID Policy

Student IDs

AISD policy requires that all secondary students wear an ID at all times while on campus. During the first week and a half of school, each student was provided with an ID, and a label to be placed on the ID holder for their schedule.

  • If a student loses/forgets their ID, a new one can be purchased for $2 during 1st period. A staff member visits each class, collecting names and $2. The IDs are delivered to the students, eliminating a need for the student to leave class.
  • Students must present IDs to enter the cafeteria at lunch- ID must be theirs, photo facing out and visible, no defacing of picture. Students without IDs will have lunch detention hall for that day.
  • IDs are required to attend all events on campus (athletic and social). Students without IDs will be turned away at the door.

Please help us to reinforce this policy by making sure your child has their ID before they leave home each morning!

Breakfast, anyone?

Serving Breakfast Starting at 8:15!
Any student can purchase breakfast between 8:15 and 8:45am for $1.25 (or at a reduced price of $.40 or free for those who qualify). 7th grade students in first period athletics will also have the option of getting a quick breakfast at the end of first period. Take advantage of the opportunity and FEED YOUR BRAIN!

Letter from Mr. Hagman

August 25, 2014

Dear Shack Families,

It is with heartfelt words that I write this to inform you that I am leaving Shackelford Junior High. As you may have heard, I was named principal of Lamar High School at the school board meeting on August 21st. I am honored to have been selected for this opportunity, but I will miss working with you and all of the wonderful students here at Shackelford. Shack is a terrific place to be; the staff is dedicated to your child’s well-being and learning. Your child is in very capable, loving hands.

I would like to thank you for the opportunity to serve you, your children and this outstanding school community and hope you know that I am especially proud of our students. I look forward to hearing great things about their accomplishments as they continue their education at Shackelford and Lamar.

Sherman Perry will serve as interim principal. Mr. Perry is a retired AISD administrator. He has also previously served as interim principal at Arlington High School and both Ferguson and Gunn junior highs. He has a great love for children and is looking forward to getting to know all of you as he serves at Shackelford.

Estimados Padres/Tutores:

Les escribo esta carta con sentidas palabras para informarles que dejaré Shackelford Junior High. Como deben haber escuchado, me nombraron director de Lamar High School durante la reunión de la junta directiva de anoche. Me siento honrado por haber sido seleccionado para esta oportunidad, pero echaré de menos trabajar con ustedes y con todos los maravillosos alumnos aquí en Shackelford.

Quisiera agradecerles por la oportunidad de trabajar con ustedes, sus hijos y esta extraordinaria comunidad escolar y espero que sepan que me siento especialmente orgulloso de nuestros alumnos. Ansío enterarme de grandes noticias acerca de sus logros a medida que continúan con su educación en Shackelford y Lamar.

Sherman Perry servirá como director interino. El Sr. Perry es una administrador de AISD ya retirado. También sirvió previamente como director interino en la Escuela Preparatoria Arlington y en las Escuelas Secundarias Ferguson y Gunn. Él tiene un gran corazón por los niños y está ansioso de conocerlos a todos ustedes.
