  • Hello Shaughnessy Families,

    This is Greg Passeri, Principal of the Shaughnessy School, with an update before we reach the weekend. Despite the challenges we are all facing together, the Shaughnessy staff is still working to support our families. You may have already heard from your child's teacher this week, but our teachers are trying to stay in contact with all of their families. One way that teachers will reach out to you is through phone calls or email, but another method of communication is through Classroom Dojo. If you are not signed up for this already, your child's teacher will be able to connect you.

    I also wanted to remind families that the food sites are providing meals at the set times and the district is going to be adding additional sites, so please continue to check the resources online.

    The district has continued expanding the resources for students to engage in home learning and work packets are able to be downloaded and printed out. For families that want to be provided a paper copy, they are distributed at the food sites each Wednesday and Thursday. Our staff members have continued to contribute to the virtual read aounds that are on the district's YouTube Channel.

    Lastly, Shaughnessy will be having a virtulal PTO check in and event next week, so we will provide you with more information as we get closer. I am also providing direct links to all of the district resources discussed below.

    On behalf of the entire Shaughnessy staff, I want to again wish you all a nice weekend, and you will continue to hear regular updates from me, as well as messages from our teachers through their own communications. We are committed to continuing to partner with you in educating your child, despite our present circumstances. Please be safe and reach out if you need anything.

    Thank you and have a good night.
