CLASS PLACEMENT - 2021/2022 SCHOOL YEAR

Dear Coyote Families,


As we near the end of the 2020/2021 school year and consider class placements for next year we want to ensure you have information regarding the process. Please understand that a great deal of time, energy, and professional judgment goes into the placement of each and every student.


Factors that we consider while building “balanced” classes include the following:


  • Combinations of students that create the strongest learning environment possible (for all students, not just a few)

  • Close to an equal number of boys and girls

  • Student personality, behavior, and special needs

  • Individual learning styles


Therefore, we are not accepting specific teacher requests. However, if you would like to provide input that would help us with class placement without making specific teacher requests, please complete and submit this Parent Input Form no later than Friday, May 14. Any information you provide regarding your student’s learning style, personality, behavior, and/or special needs is valued and will be noted.


Staff will use their professional and in-depth knowledge of your child as a learner and student to develop well-balanced classes that reflect the Sunset Ranch Learning Community.


When you have completed the annual Data Confirmation in the Aeries Parent Portal, teacher assignments can be accessed there prior to the first day of school as in the past.

Asian American and Pacific Islander Month: May 2021

The month of May was chosen to commemorate the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to the United States on May 7, 1843, during the beginning of the California Gold Rush. It also marks the anniversary of the completion of the First Transcontinental Railroad on May 10, 1869. Most of the workers who laid the tracks that connected the frontier to the rest of the country were Chinese immigrants. Many years after the initial waves of immigration, the official celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month began as a shorter, 10-day celebration in 1977; however, President George H.W. Bush expanded it to a month-long commemoration in 1992.

CHALK IT UP EVENT @ BREEN ELEMENTARY SUNDAY, MAY 17, 2021 @ 10:00 A.M.

The Rocklin Unified School District (RUSD) recognizes the complex, controversial, and, for many, very personal issues that many members of our school community face during times like this.


This year, the RUSD Equity and Inclusivity Steering Committee discussed the importance of continuing to recognize the impact national and local incidents of inequity and racial discrimination have on our students, families, employees, and the community-at-large. The school district prioritizes equity and inclusivity across all of our campus to provide a positive, safe, and welcoming atmosphere to unite and respect the diversity at each school and is committed to this work.


Throughout this school year, we have promoted events that have taken place throughout the county in efforts to erase hate, spread love, and to raise awareness. The community is encouraged to participate in the next “Chalk it Up” event at Breen Elementary. Due to rain in the forecast, the event will now take place on Sunday, May 16, 2021 from 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.


If participants would like to donate a book during the event, please review this list of books recommended by the RUSD librarian: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/263LKH4HJORBA?ref_=wl_share .

ELEMENTARY OPEN HOUSE CANCELLED

Thank you for your continued support and partnership during this challenging year. It has been wonderful having all students back on campus these past two weeks. The voices and laughter of children have brought our campuses back to life!


Our annual TK-6 Open House was scheduled for Thursday, May 13, 2021. Unfortunately, due to continuing restrictions on large gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are cancelling Open House this year at our elementary schools including the Rocklin Virtual Campus (RVC). We look forward to resuming this important community event in the 2021-22 school year.


Thursday, May 13 was scheduled to be a minimum day. However, with the cancellation of Open House, we are changing this day back to a full instructional day with normal school hours (Early Start - 7:50-2:20 / Late Start - 8:25-2:55). Please adjust your schedules accordingly.
