Today was an amazing day back with the staff. The classrooms look great and all the efforts of the staff, custodial staff, school nurse, building based team and much more has not gone unnoticed. We may have less desks and more space in-between but the building and learning environment is filled with excitement, energy and love to welcome students back. Over the next few weeks you will be getting more information as we re-open and just a reminder that our virtual open house is this Thursday. Staff will be sending out information on this shortly.
As promised below is a link for a Shawsheen Elementary School Parent Orientation. Within this slide show are voice overs if you wish to click on it. If not, you are welcome to just read through the slides. The presentation will take you through what a day will look like at Shawsheen including mask breaks, car rider, dismissal, snack, lunch, recess and handwashing. There are also links provided for more district resources and a question form for any questions you would like to submit. I will answer your question in a FAQ sheet for this week’s weekly news by Friday or email you directly.
Thank you so much for working with us to prepare your children for the transition back. For our remote classroom learners I have included you on this email as well. There is some information on attendance and cohorts that may pertain to you. We will be doing many school activities which will be inclusive of all learners remote or hybrid such as All School Meeting, PBIS lessons and more. Stay tuned and thanks for all you do!

Good Afternoon Families,
We are very excited to welcome students back while continuing to embrace our current and ongoing remote learners. In the next few weeks I will be sending out specific reopening information on our school procedures such as mask breaks, car rider, arrival, dismissal etc. As a reminder the district has been providing beneficial information and updating policies and procedures on our website. Last evening the superintendent held a community forum where the cohorts, schedules, covid procedures and much more was discussed. Please feel free to review these resources at your convenience. Reopening Website and Resources
We have refrained from asking families for supplies this year as we will provide them so that nothing is shared. However, if you would like to send your child in with their own hand sanitizer for their desk that would be appreciated. We are also more than happy to take those donations as extras if you wish. Paper towels and Kleenex is also helpful to have extra of in the classroon.
Next week from Tuesday-Friday is continued remote learning. October 19th and 20th the district has updated the calendar to reflect 2 non school days. On Wednesday, October 21st the classroom teachers will be live remotely in the a.m and asynchronous in p.m. As part of our preparation for reopening of the school, grade 1 cohort A will come in on October 22nd and grade 1 cohort B on the 23rd and then all students starting based on their cohorts on October 26th. Grades 2 and 3 will continue with remote while the first grade does their orientation days.
