Communication & publications for parents and families:

Let’s Talk – this is the best way to make your thoughts known to the school. A simple web-based form you fill out that goes directly to our decision makers.

SC Broadcast – a periodic email sent to all families who have given their email address to the school. Full of important and useful information. If you are not receiving this and wish to, simply update your Family Access account. Go to our Family Access page for more information on how to do this.

Daily Bulletin – information and details relating to school events including the schedule. This information is included in the SC Broadcast.

SC Scoop Newsletter – a monthly online publication by the SC PTSA

Principal’s Page – Mr. Hegarty’s website. Lots of useful information and resources.

Calendar – our web calendar is a great place to find out what is coming up at SC.

Family Access Website – allows students and parents/guardians access to view student attendance, schedules, report card grades, progress report grades, fees and fines, and food service balances. This is where the official contact and emergency information is kept so it is important you make sure this is up to date in order for us to reach you. Family Access updates in real time so all information is current. Students have access but with fewer privileges. It is therefore important to safeguard passwords. Access information is mailed home at the end of September on lavender paper. If you need additional help, please visit our registrar’s website and/or contact Emily Cedergreen.

Data Dashboard – allows students and parents/guardians access to view classroom grades and State assessment results. This tool was designed to allow us to have comprehensive data on how each student is doing and allow us to do what is best for that student. Much of what is in Family Access is available in Data Dashboard but please realize that any information you update does not become part of the student’s permanent record unless you update it in Family Access. Data Dashboard updates once a day at midnight. Teacher grades update when the teacher does so, which is twice a month at minimum. Access information is mailed home at the end of September on lavender paper. If you need additional help, please vist our registrar’s website and/or contact Emily Cedergreen.

Naviance Family Connection - is a web-based program being used in our high schools.  It helps students, parents, and school staff collaborate on post-high-school career and college planning, including streamlining the college-application process.  Students each have their own account; parents share one account for all their students.  The registration code allows one parent to set up a Naviance account for all parents of Shorecrest students in the family. Access information is mailed home at the end of September on lavender paper. If you need additional help, please vist our registrar’s website and/or contact Emily Cedergreen.

Teacher Class Websites – To view individual teacher classroom assignments, information, and email you will need to go to the teacher’s website.  The best way to get there is to find the teacher on their department website.  You can get there through the department website directory.  There is also a directory of school websites but it is best to go to the departments page to find a staff member. If in doubt, call us.

Staff Email – staff can also be emailed using the district email website.
