Principal's Message

May 3, 2021

Good Morning Sheehan Families,


Westwood’s Annual Town Meeting is TONIGHT, May 3rd at 5 pm. (Registration opens at 4 pm). Due to COVID restrictions, the meeting will take place outdoors on Flahive Field at Westwood High School. I encourage families to attend.


Given the outdoor venue, the presentation that the Town’s Finance Director, Pamela Dukeman, would typically present at the meeting has been distributed as a video for viewing prior to the meeting. The presentation provides a detailed report of the Town’s finances as well as an overview of the thirteen financial articles to be considered at this year’s meeting.


The financial articles at this year’s meeting include three articles related to the School Department:

  • Article 3 - FY’22 Operating Budgets
  • Article 5 - FY’22 School Capital appropriation
  • Article 13 - borrowing for “bridge funding” for the Hanlon-Deerfield school building project


(Please note: Article 13 is NOT a vote for final approval of the Hanlon-Deerfield school building project, but is a request for advance funding to continue design development through the summer to enable the project to stay on schedule and on budget.)


Also, is a letter from me regarding next year's class placement process.  Although there are still some unknowns about the 2021-2022 school year in terms of staffing and the number of classroom sections, we are planning for a return to a typical year.

Also, please see the MCAS letter sent to all Sheehan families in Grades 3, 4, and 5.


Have a great start to the first week of May! Thank you to all who put a big smile on the faces of our staff with your beautiful chalk art in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week.  The donuts and coffee were also a welcomed treat for staff this morning. Thank you!!!


Kristen Evans
