  • Roberts Road Closure Due to PECO Project

    PECO has informed us that beginning on Monday, September 16, North Roberts Road will be closed between Montgomery Avenue and Wyndon Avenue for a project to upgrade their natural gas equipment. Work will be performed between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and the project is expected to be completed in two months.
    This work will affect traffic patterns, especially at the Lower School (see details below). We will keep you posted on the status of the project and we appreciate your patience as PECO conducts this work.
    Lower School
    Morning arrival will not be impacted and will remain as is with all families dropping off in the lower lot. Afternoon dismissal for grades 3-5 will shift to the lower lot where they will join grades PK-2 for the duration of the project. The procedure for dismissal will remain the same including: left turn when entering the lot from Wyndon Ave and right turn when exiting the lot onto Wyndon Ave. All Lower School students will gather in the small gym, wait for their name to be called, then escorted by a teacher to the car line. Parents/guardians who park and walk can pick up children at the entrance to the small gym. To ensure a smooth dismissal please, follow the signage, stay in lane, don’t get out of cars while in the pick-up line, and display name tags. Encore Club dismissal at 4:15 p.m. will continue to be at the Beechwood circle. We appreciate your cooperation and patience.

  • Q. Why are my emails from Shipley going into my Spam/ Junk folder and how do I prevent it?

    Whitelisting Email Addresses
    Email clients filter incoming messages into spam or junk folders to keep unwanted mail out of inboxes. These filters sometimes mistakenly move messages from Shipley into the wrong folder.
    School email addresses often need to be whitelisted by users so that emails or notifications do not go into a users email spam file. In addition to personal email addresses, Shipley sends emails from the following:
    • shipleyschool@myschoolnotifications.com
    • shipleyschool@myschoolemails.com
    • shipleyschool@myschoolapp.com
    Removing a Block

    If a community member wishes to be removed from the blacklist at a later date, he or she is required to email that request to Blackbaud.  The request must meet the following
    • The request must be sent from the email address that is to be removed from the blacklist.
    • The request must specifically ask to be removed from the blacklist.
    • The request must specifically name the organization (The Shipley School) that should be allowed to send email to the address in question.
    Community members should email the request to: unblockme@blackbaud.com  
    Blackbaud requires these steps in the event an email recipient marks messages as SPAM a second time, after being removed from the blacklist.  The requests are kept on record as confirmation that can be provided to Email Service Providers in order to protect sender reputation.
    Requests will be fulfilled within 48 business hours.  A confirmation will be sent to the requester when the email address has been removed from the blacklist.
The Shipley School is a private, coeducational day school for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students, located in Bryn Mawr, PA. Through our commitment to educational excellence, we develop within each student a love of learning and a desire for compassionate participation in the world.
