Principal's Message

Greetings Sunny Heights Families,


The staff and students at Sunny Heights have been working very hard this week to prepare for the transition to virtual instruction on November 30. Students have practiced how to access and navigate their classroom Canvas page as well as how to use Zoom. The goal is to provide as close a learning structure as we have in person. Teachers have share quite a bit of information as well as resources for students and families, but please do not hesitate to reach out for assistance. I encourage all families to review their child's schedule and help create a good space for them to work each day. A reminder that next Monday (11/23) and Tuesday (11/24) will be eLearning days. Teachers will be available from 9:00-12:00 each day for support.


Please stay safe and healthy!


Your PROUD Principal,


Bart Lewis

Transition to Virtual

Please remember that Friday, November 20th will be our last IN-PERSON day as we transition to VIRTUAL learning until January 19th. Monday, November 23rd and Tuesday, November 24th will be eLearning days or asynchronous days, meaning students will have more flexibility in completing their school work. Teachers will be available during a three hour window for support and communication. Monday, November 30th will begin our VIRTUAL learning or synchronous learning, meaning students will follow their given schedule. To support our students and families, we have created a Transition to VIRTUAL resources webpage, https://www.warren.k12.in.us/o/msd-of-warren-township/page/resources-for-transition-to-virtual. This page will be a centralized resource for information needed for a successful transition. If you do not find what you are looking for, please contact your child’s school. School buildings will remain open and staffed during the VIRTUAL window.

Please drive through the gate on the west side of the building and, after parking, enter door 11 for assistance.

ALL STUDENTS - ATTENDANCE

For the 2020-2021 school year, Warren Township has transitioned to a new student information system called Synergy allowing our parents and caregivers to have improved access to school information through the parent portal called ParentVUE. We are aware that at this time some students’ attendance records are reflecting students are absent, when in fact they were present. This is mostly the case for our students who are attending school VIRTUALLY on application days or in the VIRTUAL opinion full-time. We want to assure you that teachers are keeping accurate attendance records and that we are working to correct attendance records for all our students.

BLACK AND GOLD VIRTUAL SCHEDULE

PBIS Weekly Focus @ Sunny Heights Elementary

This week our students are focusing on recognizing students that show EXCELLENCE throughout the day. Excellence is shown when students put forth their best effort in any situation, especially difficult or challenging situations. We want Sunny Heights to be a place where everyone is valued, respected, and strives for their own excellence.

Updated Lunch Menu

Here is the Updated Lunch Menu from Chartwell's. Starting Monday, students will get a choice of a hot or cold entree!

School District Publications/News Media Use

The occasion may arise when the school district wants to recognize your child or your child's school. This may include your child's photo, your child's name or your child's work in district publications, newsletters, on school district websites, and in electronic/social media or in staff training videos. We may also want to tell the media (including newspapers, television, and radio) about your child's achievements. We never knowingly release information about a student to anyone who wants to use it for commercial/political purposes. However, we will honor your request to not include your child in these types of recognition if you notify your child's school office in writing that you do not want this type of information released.

IMPORTANT: COVID-19 INFORMATION
