Help Us Plan for Next Year

Parents of students in grades TK-7, please help us plan for next year by letting us know if your students will return to South Bay USD for the 22-23 school year by completing this short two-question survey. Thank you so much for your help!

Lunch on the Lawn

Lunch on the Lawn at both Pine Hill and South Bay is THIS THURSDAY, May 26. Please see the information distributed from the school for each grade level's lunchtime. We look forward to seeing you on campus for this fun event!

Parent Teacher Student Association

New leadership for the district's Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) is wanted for the 22-23 school year. PTSA was unable to meet and plan due to the Covid pandemic. Next year we hope to once again start up a vibrant and strong PTSA. If you are interested in taking a leadership role or just want some information about this important district team, please reach out to Heather Becksted at South Bay or Tim Grimmett at Pine Hill.

Keeping our School Community Healthy

Hello SBUSD families. Over the past few days we have seen an increase in positive Covid cases in Humboldt County, as well as on our campuses. There is also a terrible cold going around. To ensure that everyone is as safe as possible on campus, please keep your student home if they have any cold/Covid symptoms. We will test students upon their return to school to best ensure the health of our students and staff. Thanks for your understanding and assistance maintaining the health of our school community!

Vaccinations Available
