The Grapevine is getting a facelift! Since 2008, the main goal of the Grapevine has been to improve communications throughout the district by providing the Shen community a place to get their questions answered. Preserving the Grapevine’s legacy, we have created an archive of frequently asked questions over the past 13 years that can be accessed here:

Building on increased and improved accurate communication with our students, parents, employees and community members, the Grapevine is moving to the PlainFacts, a one-stop-shop to find today’s most frequently asked questions, providing answers and resources in an accurate and timely fashion.

NOT ALL QUESTIONS WILL BE ANSWERED. For individual or private concerns, you should contact the school or district office by phone. We will not answer comments about specific individuals by name, or titles that would identify specific individuals.

Form submissions are sent directly to the district’s public information office. The Public Information Officer determines who could best answer the question and directs the question to that person. Once the PIO receives the answer, it will be posted.

Have a question you need answered? Can’t find what you’re looking for? Complete this form and we’ll provide detailed information with access to available resources.
