Sunset Valley Elementary 11.22.19


Jaguar Families,

This week was an emotional one for many at Sunset Valley. As our school community processes the loss of a student, we continue to send our love and condolences to the Ullman family. We realize that there are many stages and levels of grief, so please don't hesitate if there is anything that we can do to support you or your child. We are thankful for the support of the staff, students, and SVE community.

-Mrs. Rachel Flood
