    Pay to Participate Public Statement & FAQs

    Superintendent’s Pay-to-Participate Public Statement  - September 4, 2018

     The Shelton Board of Education, due to a pattern of under-funding, leaving our students to learn and grow in one of the lowest funded districts in CT, continually needs to make due with less.

    Our dual priorities are student safety and academic opportunities.

     After reducing our workforce while trying to maintain a qualified, professional staff, we now must ask families to help support important programs in athletics and the arts.  As the cost of healthcare, utilities, and labor go up our funding has not kept pace. We need the community’s help to provide for programs we cannot afford any longer.

    We do not like Pay-to-Participate, and we will work with families to make this work, but with our consistently low per pupil expenditure (near the very bottom of the state-published annual listing of all school districts), we now need the direct support from the community to meet our legally mandated priorities, as well as traditional athletics and arts-based activities.

     "Pay to Participate" will help keep our excellent programs in the arts and athletics sustainable.

     A link to the specific details of "Pay to Participate" can be found on our website and on the attached Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document regarding “Pay to Participate”.

    By the end of the first week of school (9/7/18) – parent/guardians will be able to electronically pay for their student’s participation in school activities via Infinite CampusParent Portal.

    Through the Parent Portal – parents/guardians will be able to access individual student information regarding “Fees” and “Payments” similar to the way parents currently use the Point of Sale system for our food service provider.

Principal's Message

It is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for the 2018-2019 school year.  I would also like to extend a special welcome to our incoming Kindergarten students and new students. We are all excited to have the students back in our classrooms and hallways!

I am privileged to have the opportunity to continue to collaborate and work with the highly qualified and dedicated staff at Long Hill School. Our teachers spend hours planning and creating classroom lessons and activities to engage our students and provide 21st Century learning experiences. It is our mission to provide an excellent education in a safe and nurturing environment.

I truly believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience for all Long Hill School students. Please be sure to continually check your child’s backpack as well as the school’s website for notices and updates throughout the school year. Education is a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians, and community. I look forward to working with all of you to make this a successful school year. You are invited to be an active participant at Long Hill School. Whether you are a classroom volunteer or a member of the PTO, you are encouraged to be involved. Our children are more successful when we work together as a team.

I am looking forward to a great 2018-2019 school year and cannot wait to welcome our students on the first day of school.  It is going to be an amazing year as we continue to provide rigorous and relevant academic experiences for our students and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. It is a privilege to be a part of a community where parents and families, staff, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.

Sincerely,
Mrs. D'Aiuto
Principal
