Shabonee Student Handbook


This elementary student handbook has been prepared through the combined efforts of parents, staff, and administration with the intention of providing you and your child with important information concerning Shabonee School and District 27. This book is designed to serve as a guide for parents and students so that they better understand the policies and procedures designed to assist children’s educational experience. As the need arises during the school year, additional information will either be mailed or sent home with your child. However, the information contained in this handbook should answer most questions you may have. Please carefully review this book with your child(ren) so that their rights and responsibilities are understood.
