On July 17, you received the TEAM Homewood plan for the 20-21 school year.

HCS Reopening TEAM Homewood Plan

Dr. Lowry has provided a document to explain how this plan will be implemented specifically at Shades Cahaba.

SCE Reopening Plan


We hope this gives your family more information as begin the school year.


Email your questions to ShadesCahaba@homewood.k12.al.us.  These will be reviewed during normal business hours. 




PTO will pre-purchase supplies for each student and ask each student, who is able, to cover the cost of their box(s).  Our efforts to streamline this process and hopefully reduce stress for our SCE families due to COVID-19 restrictions is in hopes that each family who is able to pay for their supplies will do so at their convenience. Payments will be accepted through August 30th.



Should you have any questions or concerns, please email shadescahabapto@gmail.com


Cost of supply by grade:

Kindergarten        $49/box

First                      $41/box

Second                 $38/box

Third                     $45/box

Fourth                   $44/box

Fifth                      $45/box

What's Happening in the PTO?
Our first PTO meeting of the year will be a virtual meeting on August 17, 2020 at 6:00 p.m.  You will learn what PTO has been doing this summer as well as important news regarding the school year from our principals.
We understand that you can't always make the monthly PTO meetings. As much as we'd love to see you in person, we're even more interested in making sure you're informed with what's happening in the school.
If you missed a meeting, take time to read the Meeting Minutes.
