Shaughnessy Shark Bites

August 25 2021

Good Afternoon Shark Families and Staff!

It was a busy week before school! It was wonderful to see teachers buzzing in the building, staff helping each other, new teachers at orientation, and friendly faces at the Block Party. As we are getting back into the First Day of School, we have many reminders and links for you.

We have a back to school update for you today - all of your links are here!

We mailed out your child's Classroom Teacher Letter, but if you need to check in, it's on the front of Shaughnessy Elementary.

If you are looking for Bus Look Up information, it's here. You'll need your student's "lunch number" or local ID.

Here if you are looking for the online version of the Consent form for testing (it does take you to a CIC site, but it's connected to the schools).

Here if you are looking for our Virtual Open House information.

Here if you are looking to read the Safety Covid Testing Consent form in another language.

Here if you are looking for Dismissal and Arrival procedures.

On the first day of school, we will have a packet of papers for you to review and fill out for your student. It is very important that we receive your information back as soon as possible. Your emergency info, your updated home information, handbook info and your consent forms all need to be processed quickly so we can support you as best as possible!

Please note we also updated the Open House date to the 23rd of September. Thank you to the families who advocated for the date change so early - it helped us make it happen!
