Principal's Message

September 7, 2022

 

Dear Sheehan Families

 

Our Sheehan students and staff are off to a great start!!  It was terrific to hear the hallways, classrooms, and playground abuzz with excitement and laughter! Students left the building last week with big smiles on their faces sharing that they had an “awesome 2 days”!

 

The Westwood Public Library awarded the Sheehan School with a beautiful trophy to celebrate our students as the summer reading champions.  We had the most participants join the Westwood Public Library’s Summer Reading Program.  Way to go Sheehan!

 

I want to share some important information and updates on COVID protocols as we start the school year. The MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and MA Department of Public Health issued updated guidance to schools for this year related to COVID. The protocols this year are quite different from last fall. A couple of key points:

 

  • Similar to last spring, there is no requirement to mask (other than in the health office).
  • Students are still welcome to mask if they choose.
  • The WPS no longer has any COVID testing programs.
  • Last spring, our WPS COVID Monitoring and Response Team was disbanded. The Westwood Public Health Department is able to provide consultation to residents.

 

As always, in order to keep everyone healthy, please keep your student home if they are symptomatic.  According to current public health protocols, individuals who test positive for COVID should isolate for 5 days and wear a mask for an additional five days upon return to school. If the child has a negative test on Day 5 or later, they do not need to mask. If the individual is unable to mask, they may return to school with a negative test on Day 5 or later.

 

If you have any questions regarding this updated guidance, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or Nurse Brown.

 

Sincerely,

Kristen Evans

A to Z Connect - Important Update - ACTION REQUIRED

 

The Sheehan School PTA uses A to Z Connect as our membership platform. 

 

Please log into the new system to confirm your information. Returning users can use the previous username/password. For new users, please create a new account. Only one account per family is needed. This website is where families will pay PTA dues, and purchase items such as apparel for the annual school apparel sale and tickets to the fall social. We also hope to utilize this site to coordinate other events throughout the year.  Also, this website is where families can access the student directory. This directory is accessible for members who have paid membership dues. We anticipate that the directory will be available in early October. From the website, you can download the mobile app as well. Please contact Kate Martucci at sheehan.pta.secretary22@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.
