    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

Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

Spring is definitely in the air! We had an inspiring and creative learning opportunity throughout February as we explored Carnevale in many cultures. I was so impressed with our grade levels floats. The partnership with teachers, parents, and students is evident with such amazing floats and parade. We hope you enjoyed our Mardi Gras celebration, as much as we did. Keep spreading that kindness. We take great PRIDE knowing our students are ready to meet the challenges in this diverse world. As you can see below, March is a busy month. We are looking forward to our fourth graders sharing their inventions during the judging on Wednesday, March 4th. Parents are welcome to browse all the inventions after the judging at 2pm. 

Our book reveal will be on Friday, March 6th. All families will receive one copy to assist in participating at home. The sibling in the highest grade will bring the book home. We will include an introductory letter explaining the school and home components, in addition to the calendar of events. We are excited to share our love for reading as a school community ~ Tigers Read Together. In addition, there is a parent report from the NAESP about the rewards of reading as an attachment to this newsletter. 

We are happy to partner with the PTO and support their Read-a-thon. Student information sheets will go home on March 9th. Students are encouraged to gain donations to read at least 10 hours from March 9th to the 20th. Our hope is that our school-wide read book will assist students and families to gain some of these hours. Teachers will communicate to their families how many hours they have read. Happy Reading! 

Finally, we are encouraging students to celebrate gratitude and kindness throughout the month of March with our "March Madness Matter Mondays". Staff and students are welcome to wear their "You Matter", "Look for the Good", spiritwear or school colors every Monday in March. Let's brighten up our hallways with these cheerful colors. 


Amy Yost, Principal
