April 1, 2021 - As we bring students back to in-person classes in our hybrid model, we have updated our meal service. Our last delivery to sites will be on Thursday, April 1st. We will instead be providing "Grab-n-Go" bag meals on campus, during morning recess, at departure, and also in a drive thru for students to access on their home/distance learning days.
4/13/21 - We know that these past few months we've asked you to complete numerous surveys. Your input and feedback are important to us. Today, we are writing to ask for ~15 minutes of your time to complete an online survey that will help us improve our schools. We have asked YouthTruth – a nonprofit organization that supports hundreds of schools and districts across the county – to conduct an anonymous survey on our behalf.
Sebastopol Educational Foundation (SEF) has partnered with Farm Fresh to You (organic foods delivered right to your door!) to help fund SUSD schools. Along with fruits and veggies, you can add on other groceries and farm products (milk, cheese, flowers, etc.). 10% of the total spent on every order is donated back to the school. The more people that sign up, the quicker the funding to classrooms will grow!
As the COVID-19 situation continues to improve in Sonoma County, we need your input for the spring trimester. We are finalizing our safety plans and anticipating a return to campus in a Hybrid model, sometime after Spring Break. We will keep you posted once our plans have been approved by the county and state health departments. In the meantime, we need to know your preference for your student(s). Please take just a few moments to complete the survey.
