  • Dear Shawsheen Students, Families, and Staff,

    Out of an abundance of caution, Shawsheen Valley Technical High School will be closing for one week starting on Monday, March 16, 2020. Although there have been no confirmed or presumptive cases of Covid-19 associated with the Shawsheen Community, we have made the decision to close down for one week in an effort to support recommendations regarding social distancing and to clean and disinfect our entire facility. There will be no extra-curricular events or activities after school today, Friday, March 13, or during the closure next week.

    We recognize that the closing of school can pose struggles for some students/families experiencing economic hardship. We encourage families with concerns about the impact of the closure to reach out to my office regarding assistance that may be available during this time.

    Recognizing that our students don’t have equal access to the necessary resources, we will not be assigning or requiring students to complete school-work during the closure. Students on co-op can make the decision individually, in communication with their co-op employers, regarding whether they will report to their co-op jobs next week or not. Please note that students are not required to report to co-op and will not be penalized if they decide to stay home.

    We will continue to monitor the situation closely over the next week, and make any future decisions in accordance with advice from public health and government officials.


    Best,
    Jessica Cook

    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

    To the Shawsheen Valley Technical HS Community: This morning, we were made aware of emails that were sent to a significant number of Shawsheen students. These emails contained potential threats to the school. In coordination with the Billerica Police Department, we have determined that there is no credible threat. All precautions have been taken. Thank you to the many students who came forward with this information.

    Attention Students! Do you want to dump a bucket of ice water over a staff member? Tomorrow is your chance to do just that! All you need to do is make a $5.00 cash donation to the Angel Fund for ALS research and you can dump a bucket of ice water on top of a Shawsheen staff member. 
     
    Bring your $5.00 donation and bucket to Ms. Caira in the guidance office and select your staff member from a pre-determined list. The ice bucket challenge is being held on Tuesday, September 10th at 2:30 PM. Thank you in advance for your support of this charitable event.
