SRES Family Newsletter for the Week of August 3, 2020

Principal Message

Hello Coyote Families,

We are excited to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year. Whether your student is starting school at Sunset Ranch with our new and improved Distance Learning Model or with Rocklin Virtual Campus (RVCing @ SRES), we are all in this together. Together we will ensure our students grow and are cared for socially, emotionally, and academically. I know there are many questions about the start of school and we are committed to providing detailed answers as soon as possible. Thanks for all you do to support our Sunset Ranch community!

To-Do Starting August 3, 2020:

The data confirmation process for Rocklin Unified School District will open on August 3rd on the parent portal in Aeries. This process is designed to ensure all student demographic and contact information is reviewed and updated each year. Please be sure to complete this process as soon as possible, including printing, signing and returning the walking field trip form to your student(s) teacher as soon as school opens back up on site. This will need to be completed for each student before you can view who your student’s teacher is in the Aeries Parent Portal for the 2020-2021 school year.

Back to School Supplies

Traditionally, we have provided a suggested list of supplies by grade level. As soon as teachers return to school, we will discuss recommended school supplies and will communicate with you as soon as possible. At this time, please focus on what your student will need at home for distance learning or RVCing. We recommend creating a special space just for school that is free from distractions.

If you are in need of supplies, please contact Cachet Abedi @ or call 916-624-2048 to arrange for pick up. We have backbacks filled with various supplies thanks to our community partners.
