Hello Shepard Families, Just as a reminder if you need to change your child's transportation during a school day please call the front office. If you email a teacher directly they may not see it until after students leave. We want to make sure that there is no confusion at the end of the day and that all of our students get home safely and on time. Thank You!

2023 Retiree: Jeannie Guebert has been with BESD53 as an employee since 2006. She has worked at Alan Shepard and LeVasseur, but started and spent most of her career at Robert Frost School, welcoming our newest Pre-K and Kindergarten parents and students. In her Frost days, she adopted Pre-K as hers and has continued to be wonderful in welcoming our new families to the district. She enjoys watching the students grow and all their accomplishments through the years. Many years prior to being an employee she was an active parent in BESD53 as her two children attended, she was also the PTA president. Jeannie has always been a great asset to our district and will be missed by staff, students and parents. In retirement, she will be able to spend more time enjoying her family, and hobbies like sewing, decorating, traveling and gardening.
