  • Remote Learning Friday, March 5th and Monday, March 29th

    Dear Shades Valley AND IB Parents,

    Thankfully, we are now able to provide an opportunity for our faculty and staff to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. 

    In order to make this process run as quickly and efficiently as possible, we have worked with UAB to set up mass vaccination days.  However, this will require our educators to leave campus at various times.

    Therefore, all Shades Valley and IB school students will transition to remote learning for Friday, March 5th and Monday, March 29th.   

    These days will allow our employees to get their first and second doses.  We have also built-in time to allow them to recover from any symptoms they experience as a result of the shots.

    We deeply appreciate your partnership.  We understand that remote learning places a burden on families.  However, this is the first step in returning our school to normal.  I ask for your continued support and patience.

    We will provide more information about class assignments prior to the remote learning days. 

    Should you have any questions, please contact either office.


    Taki Sarhaan, Principal, SVHS         Lori Lightsey, Principal, JCIB
