Thank you for your interest in our school. Good Shepherd is accredited through the state of South Dakota and Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod School Accreditation(WELSSA) program.
Our doors open at school at 7:45am. Classes start promptly at 8:00am and students are dismissed at 3:30pm.
We have 4 classrooms at our school: full-time kindergarten, First–Second Grade, Third–Firth Grade, and Sixth–Eighth Grade. Yes, we have multi-grade classrooms. There are several benefits from multi-grade classrooms to the students: repetition/review, family atmosphere, mentoring, etc. Students have a variety of classes throughout the school day which may take place in the classrooms, AR library, art room, science room, gymnasium, or sanctuary. You may also see them using our smart boards and chromebooks.
Around noon the children eat lunch in our gymnasium. We provide microwaves for students to make a hot meal. Milk can be ordered separately. Children bring lunches from home each school day. We do not have a hot lunch program.
After dismissal at 3:30pm children are excused to head home or attend our after school care program. The after school program accepts up to 15 children per day and lasts from 3:30pm–6:30pm. The current rate for after school care is $9.00 per day per child.
