E-mail blast

WELCOME to 2020-2021!

Thursday is our first day of school and we will start with an alternate schedule for Thursday, September 3 and Friday, September 4. Students will attend virtual class between 9:00-10:00AM, the remainder of the day students will work on asynchronous work to meet the minimum minutes.

Some of the most important foundations for a successful school year begins with establishing a positive learning community and setting the routines and procedures for successful learning. This is even more important as we return together in our virtual classrooms! 

SCUSD has a great resource for families with all kinds of information and tutorials on Distance Learning. Check it out at!


Please be sure to visit our website,, to complete all of your first day forms on-line. it is very important the the Free/Reduced Lunch Application and the LCFF form are completed, this year both are 1 form per family,

UPDATE from Nutrition Services

SCUSD families may have received information that meals are only available to enrolled students, including an Enrollment Verification Letter to Obtain School Meals with your student’s barcode on goldenrod paper. This letter is no longer needed to receive school meals. USDA has issued updated guidance that meals can be provided at no cost, to all children 0-18 years old. Effective September 3, 2020, SCUSD Nutrition Services will continue to offer curbside meals at no cost to all children at 44 school sites.
