Principal's Message

The Shaner School is a PBIS school.  So what exactly does that mean?  As you spend time in our school this week we encourage you to take notice of the postings in our hallways and classrooms.  These represent an underlying foundation of the positive behaviors we teach and expect of our students. Woven throughout the fabric of our school is a constant attention to proactive behavioral response strategies.  The knowledge and time that go into being a positive behavior intervention and supports school, though significant, is well worth it to see true and lasting behavioral change in our students.  If you are interested in learning more please contact our office and a representative of the PBIS team will gladly speak with you.

At the July, 2017 Hamilton Township Board of Education meeting, the Board approved a new Transportation Policy 8605 –Requirements to Meet Students at Bus Stop. This policy provides for the following:

  • All preschool, kindergarten, first grade, and second grade students must be met at the bus stop by a person who will be taking responsibility for that student as they depart the bus in the afternoon.
  • Any person who will be taking responsibility for the student must be age 12 or older.
  • The parent/guardian of any student in grades three through eight who rides a special needs van may request that their student not be dropped off without a responsible person meeting them by contacting the Transportation Department
