  • Elementary School Redistricting Plan Public Meetings

    The redistricting plan proposal for Booth Hill, Elizabeth Shelton, Long Hill, Mohegan, and Sunnyside elementary schools was adopted by the Shelton Board of Education at their meeting on Wednesday, April 24, 2019. Please see attached PDF "new" school zone map which outlines all elementary school districts and lists school zones by street and lot.  Note that PDF map can be enlarged to determine street names and lot positions.

    All elementary school families that were directly affected by redistricting have been contacted by their current school with a transition plan for their students.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

Welcome Families! This is definitely an unusual start to the school year. You will find my Welcome Letter and protocols to follow throughout the year under the Policies and Procedures topic above. Please take the time to read this newsletter, as there are many new procedures and protocols put in place for the safety of ALL.

A tradition at Sunnyside School was always to welcome parents into our school on the first day with their child(ren). Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 and the safety guidelines, this tradition will not be in place this year. Parents will not be allowed to walk their child to their child’s classroom on the first day of school. We realize this may be difficult for many, but please know there are energetic staff members waiting through our doors to eagerly greet and assist our Tigers. We ask that parent stay in their cars when dropping off. We have many families opting out of bus transportation, so we need to keep the line moving for safety purposes. We recommend students sit on the passenger side of the car for an easy exit. In addition, our dismissal procedure for parent pick up is slightly different. We ask for your patience at dismissal time. Parents will not be allowed in the building. We will be working with one family at a time to dismiss their child. If you are new to Sunnyside School, please have ID ready so we may verify your child’s pickup information in the Infinite Campus (IC) portal. Please follow all social distancing guidelines outside the building while waiting for your child. During the month of September, elementary schools are following the early dismissal release time of 1:50 pm.

Respectfully,

Mrs. Yost

    Message regarding building clean out

    Good afternoon,


    The Shelton Public Schools realizes that students need additional time to retrieve personal items from school buildings during this school closure. The following procedures and expectations were developed in conjunction with several members of the Shelton Public Schools Health Emergency Planning Committee. Expectations and the designated schedule are attached. School administrators and Shelton Public Schools security officers will be on hand to facilitate the procedures and to ensure that expectations are being adhered to. As the health and safety of our employees, students, parents and the community are paramount, anyone not following expectations will be asked to leave the facility. 

     

    Please review the plan in its entirety noting that:

     

    • Per Connecticut law, every student/parent must wear a face mask/covering when reporting to school. Face mask/covering will not be provided; students/parents must provide their own face mask/covering.  Anyone without a face mask/covering will not be allowed to enter the building. 
    • Students are strongly encouraged to bring your own bags/boxes to carry your belongings. Students will be allowed in the building one time so it is imperative they are prepared to carry out all their belongings. 
    • No food, drink, staff appreciation gifts or items of any kind will be allowed in the building.
    • Items that belong to the district, such as books, uniforms, library books, chromebooks, will NOT be collected at this time. 


    Thank you for your cooperation,


    Dr. Smith

    Interim Superintendent

    Emergency
