Does your student(s) need a backpack and supplies?

Bayside Church was so kind to provide several backpacks and supplies for our families. If you are in need, please stop by the office to select a new backpack filled with supplies. The SRES Office is open starting August 2 from 7:15 a.m.-3:45 p.m.

Does your student have a chromebook at home?

Many of you may have received a message regarding the Emergency Connectivity Fund. This program is not income-driven. If you have had connectivity issues from home or need a device for your student (s), we encourage all families to apply for this program. For more information, you can go to our district website, refer to the messages sent earlier, or call our Technology Department at 916-672-3600. We don't want any of you to miss out on this incredible opportunity.

SRES PTC: Volunteers Needed

Sunset Ranch PTC is looking for volunteers for the coming school year to serve as PTC members of the Executive Board. This is simple and the time commitment is very manageable. We are also looking for someone to learn and manage the PTC Facebook page alongside a veteran this year in order to take over next year. If you are able to help or if you have questions, please email sunsetranchptc@gmail.com

Thank you!

SRES COPY CENTER: Parent Volunteers Needed

SRES is establishing a Copy Center run by parent volunteers. Do you have time in your schedule between 7:30 and 3:45 p.m Monday-Friday? If so, please complete this short form and we will be in contact with you soon. SRES Copy Center Volunteer Form Thank you so much!

Nutrition Services

School lunch will continue to be free of charge this school year. We are asking all families to complete the Alternate Income Forms. This is very important as the way the state funds our schools depends on this information. Thank you for taking a few minutes to complete this Alternate Income Form.
