Message from the Principal

Welcome Back to Another Exciting School Year!

Dear Sharpsburg Families,

On behalf of the Sharpsburg Elementary staff, it is our pleasure to welcome you back to school and the start of our to the 2021-2022 school year. We are thrilled that you have entrusted your child's education to us, in lieu of everything going on in the world around us.  Be assured that we are dedicated to providing an educational experience of the highest quality for every student.  We have spent the past 18 months learning, gathering information, putting together a comprehensive safety plan to ensure the most conducive learning environment for all to enjoy.  Together with everyone’s help, we can & will get through these turbulent times.

It’s our belief that all of us - the school, the parents, and the community - must work together in an extended family environment to ensure success for each student in helping them become forward thinkers and problem solvers.    Whether that be in class or virtual, our staff and administrators have taken various professional development opportunities to get the much-needed growth from every student.  We know that COVID-19 has changed protocol, policy and strategies, but we know that without your support and being active in your student’s educational endeavors it would be a much tougher road.  We encourage each of you to become a member of our PTO, communicate with your child's teachers, and attend school events throughout the school year.



  • Please continue to safely utilize the new drop off lanes at both the Primary and Elementary if you are driving your child to school.  Do not stop on the street, as you likely will be ticketed.
  • 2nd Grade Classrooms are now located in the elementary building
  • To be allowed to take a student from the building, the adult must be VERIFIED as a listed emergency contact on the students Emergency Medical Authorization Form and MUST SHOW PHOTO I.D. 
  • They will need to bring their Chromebooks with them each day (please make sure they are completely charged each evening).  Students also need to bring a water bottle with them to school every day.


We are committed to a safe and healthy learning environment.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 924-2600 or via email ([email protected]).
