January 8, 2021
Sunny Heights Families,
I would like to welcome everyone back as we begin 2021! It was great to see our student's faces, smiles, and hear their laughter (even through a computer). Students and teachers picked up right where they left off in December and we are back to learning!
The window for the Learning Option Change has closed for Q3 & Q4. We are all looking forward to seeing many of our students in person beginning January 19th and continuing to support those in the Virtual Learning Academy. We are in tough times currently for sure due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the disturbing events in Washington D.C. We want to be a source of safety and support for our students, staff, and families whenever and however possible.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to school staff with questions, concerns, or needs for support.
Your Proud Principal,

Technology Help Desk Update
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.
