Contact Director

Hello KEYS Academy families! I am so excited to be working with you this year as your new Director. I have worked at KEYS Academy-Culpeper for the past five years as the elementary teacher. On a personal note, I am a George Mason University graduate and earned both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Special Education. Outside of school, I love to explore, run, read, write and spending time with my family, friends, and three pups.

For the 2022-2023 school year, in-person learning for students and staff will be conducted Monday through Friday. Our school day starts at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m. Virtual learning is still available, as needed, due to quarantine or health conditions.

We ask that you continue to monitor your child for any cold, flu or Covid systems. If your child is displaying any symptoms, please do not send them to school and contact us immediately. Masks are still required to be worn by all students, staff, and visitors in our buildings. Parents and students will be notified in writing when we are able to ease mask restrictions.

If certain situations arise, there may be days that we conduct school through virtual learning. Parents will be contacted by our staff, and links will be sent out as soon as we have that information. We want to keep the students in a routine and continue moving forward with their learning. If you have any questions or specific needs, please contact the school and we will address those questions.

KEYS Academy has a dedicated staff supporting our students and school, and we are committed to partnering with parents to help your children grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Please feel free to reach out any time.

We are going to have a fantastic year at KEYS! On behalf of our entire staff, we look forward to working with you and your children and thank you for your cooperation and support to keep our school and families safe!

Sincerely,

Shauna Mojaddidi (Ms. Mo), MEd.
