Message from Peabody Principal Nelson:
Shelby County Schools has 8 half days of learning this school year. Half Days are from 8:15 A.M.-12:15 P.M. Students will be dismissed at 12:15 P.M.
Please communicate the Half Day dismissal time of 12:15 P.M. with your child’s Daycare if they ride a daycare bus. If they ride SCS school bus, the bus will pick them up from school at 12:15 P.M. However, parents must be available to receive students at home. If parents can’t make arrangements to be home by 12:30 P.M. to receive students from the SCS Bus, please sign up for SCS Half Day Care Program.
These are the (8) half days for the 2019-2020 school year:
- September 20
- October 11
- November 8
- December 20
- January 17
- February 14

If parents need Half Day Care, SCS is providing Half Day Care from 12:15 P.M.-3:15 P.M. Parents must sign up by Friday, September 6th via your PowerSchool Parent Portal. Click the tab that says, “Half-Day Program” to sign-up.
If parents sign-up for the Half Day Program, students must be picked up by 3:15 P.M. Parents have to sign up for the program each time there is a half day. SCS will notify you via email if your child was approved to stay for the Half Day Care Program.
If your child is a part of our school’s Y-Care Program with the YMCA, that program will not start until 3:15 P.M. This means that if you plan for your child to stay for the Y-Care which starts at 3:15 P.M., you must register them for the SCS Half Day Care program from 12:15-3:15 P.M. via the PowerSchool Parent Portal. At 3:15 P.M., we will transition your child to Y-Care when their services start.
