RUSD Budget Meeting (Virtual) for SRES Parents and Teachers

Monday, Jan 25, 2021 – 6:00 – 7:00 pm

Hello Sunset Ranch families:

Rocklin Unified School District has important decisions coming up surrounding our school district’s budget. We rely on you, our valued families, to assist in decisions we make at our schools. We invite you to share your crucial insight in helping our District prioritize our budget spending.

We invite you to attend and participate in a “virtual” district budget meeting for parents and teachers on Monday, Jan 25 (6:00 – 7:00 pm). Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the meeting will be held via Zoom. A Rocklin Unified Trustee, as well as senior district leader, will be at the meeting to listen to your input and share important information about the RUSD budget. We want and need your input.

If you plan to attend, please click on the registration form link below. Once registered, you will receive a Zoom link emailed to you prior to the meeting along with some additional information.

Thank you for playing an important role in our school and our District as we move forward together. I look forward to seeing you at the meeting.

Melanie Patterson, Principal


Starting Tuesday, January 19, 2021, SRES will transition to an AM/PM Hybrid Model


Please note the following important information that we hope will help you plan and have a smooth transition.

  • Students in Cohort A will follow the AM schedule and students in Cohort B will follow the PM schedule.

  • Students will remain in the same cohort they have currently unless previously notified by our principal secretary confirming a change. Again, students who will be changing Cohorts from A to B or B to A have already been notified via email. It is our priority to maintain cohorts as much as possible for the health and safety of our students and staff.

  • Case managers will be reaching out to families of students with Individualized Education Plans to provide an updated individualized learning plan as soon as possible if not already.

  • Breakfast and lunch will be provided on a grab and go basis and will continue to be free. Specific details will be communicated as soon as possible.

  • Drop Off and Pick Up will remain the same. The main lot is for grades 3-6, the "bus loop is for grades 1-2, and the kinder parking lot is for grades TK-K.

  • Thank you for always wearing face masks when dropping off and picking up students, even on the sidewalks. The campus will remain closed to visitors.
