The Shelton School Board of Education used a portion of the August 10 regular meeting to preview the school reopening plan that was prepared for the district. Other more routine agenda items included the budget reports, administrators’ reports, evaluations, and the approval of staff and student handbooks.
The Magnolia Mac Salon is now open in the Shelton business district just north of RAI of Nebraska Insurance. Owner Christina Baker, a native of Shelton and graduate of Shelton High School, opened the salon early in July. She is a 2014 graduate of Joseph’s College of Beauty and she and husband, Nick, have two children, Colter and McKinlee. The Magnolia Mac Salon is a full service salon and Christina is certified in hair extensions and lash lifts. Salon hours are Tuesday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and Saturdays by appointment at (308)216-0554. (–photo by Dennis Walker)
Cornerstone Bank, of Shelton, led by Michael Kasper, recently made a generous donation to the Shelton Public School’s weight room. With this money the district has purchased three multi-purpose racks to replace the older ones, three adjustable benches, and multiple selector weight equipment, such as a leg press, lat/mid/ low row machine, adjustable arm press, and chin-up/dip assist machine. The students will utilize all of this equipment, but especially the racks and benches.
