  • To the Shawsheen Valley Technical High School Community

    Yesterday, we sent out information to inform you of potential threats to school safety and to let you know that in coordination with the Billerica Police Department, no credible threat was identified. We have been in touch with Lieutenant Roche of the Billerica Police Department, he has investigated all reports and assures us that there is no viable threat. We will continue to work with the Billerica Police Department to take all precautions. As always, we recognize that even when threats are not credible, they still can cause significant stress for our students due to the realities of the world we live in. We strive to provide a safe and supportive learning environment at Shawsheen and we take the mental health and wellness of our students very seriously. We want to remind students that they can seek out support from the Guidance Department at any time if they need to. Best, Jessica Cook Principal

  • Shawsheen Tech Scores Big at the Eco-Carpentry Challenge in Boston

    The Hogwarts Express seemed to race out of a tunnel. The Harry Potter-themed bedroom unit was created by students at Shawsheen Valley Technical High School -- out of a pile of junk. Shawsheen Tech won the People’s Choice Award on May 2 during the Furniture Trust’s Eco-Carpentry Challenge. The Furniture Trust provided each school with a suite of used office furniture and excess building materials, otherwise bound for the landfill. Students from the carpentry, metal fabrication, auto body, business technology and marketing, graphic communication, and design and visual communications collaborated to develop the theme and create the different components of the bedroom set, all of which had to fit in a 10’ by 10’ exhibition space.” “I thought, what are we going to do with everything, this doesn’t make sense. We got a big pile of stuff,” said James DeFeo, 10th grade carpentry student.
