Shepherd Glen Elementary School
The district will be having one last Chromebook distribution session on Thursday, April 2nd from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Students from any school that missed their earlier pickup dates can pick up a chromebook at Hamden High School. Please only come for a chromebook if you do not already have access to technology at home.
Families wishing to pickup a Chromebook must drive to the High School, stay in their car and wait for directions. Chromebooks will be distributed on the Hamden Plaza side of the building. Those walking up should maintain distance of 6 feet from others.
Students will be learning online starting the week of March 30. Their online classrooms will be in the Google Classroom platform. Students will need access to a computer (desktop or laptop), iPad or chromebook with Internet access in order to complete their work.
Shepherd Glen families who need a device for their children to connect to Google Classroom can pick up a chromebook to borrow. They will be available for curbside pick up at school on Tuesday, March 31, according to the following schedule:
- 10:00-11:30 Last name A-M
- 11:45-1:00 Last name N-Z
Parents or guardians must pick up the chromebook. Please drive up (strongly encouraged) or walk up to school during the time frame you are assigned. Please note that there is no access to the buildings by parents or students at any time.
Teachers are aware that our schedule will mean that not all students will connect on March 30 - and so they will be flexible for the first week as we all get connected and adjust to learning online.
As you know, all Hamden Public Schools are closed due to the Coronavirus. Although essential staff may be in our buildings, our schools and central office are currently closed to the public.
Related to school meals, breakfast and lunch are available Monday - Friday, from 9:00-12:00 each morning at Hamden High, Hamden Middle and Church Street Schools. Any child 18 years and younger is eligible for these meals, which can be picked up by students or parents/guardians.
We have created a page to provide Hamden Public Schools updates during the Coronavirus pandemic. Please regularly check www.Hamden.org/Coronavirus for current information affecting the Hamden Public Schools community.
