CDE Partnership with Renaissance Learning Provides Gift of Literacy this Winter!

As part of State Superintendent Tony Thurmond's literacy initiative to get all California students to read by third grade by 2026, the California Department of Education (CDE) has partnered with Renaissance Learning, Inc. to ensure that every student can access thousands of reading resources from December 1, 2021, to January 31, 2022. The myON digital library and news articles in multiple languages can be accessed for FREE by all pre-K to grade 12 students in California. All books downloaded during the two months are able to be read offline. Schools are asked to provide the access code to unlock these free resources for students and families. Please use the Family Letter Templates to share this news, login code, and message with families in your school communities: Renaissance Learning Family Letter-English; Renaissance Learning Family Letter-Spanish. Learn more in this recent Letter from Superintendent Thurmond.

Safety Reminders

Safety at SRES is the highest priority. Please note the following:

  • Pull up to the curb when picking up students or better yet park in the neighborhood and walk to the outskirts of campus to meet your student(s).
  • Be sure to buckle up for safety. Golf carts can be dangerous. Please use seatbelts and/or car seats according to vehicle code.
  • Visitors are not allowed on campus. If you need anything be sure to go directly to the office.
  • The disabled parking spaces and crosshatched zones are for authorized vehicles only. Please respect this at all times.

On December 30, 2021, CDPH updated its guidance and reduced the isolation requirement for individuals that have tested positive for COVID-19 to five days if symptoms have resolved and they test negative on day five. Similarly, quarantine due to exposure to a positive case has been reduced to five days with a negative test. Additionally, all adults and students will continue to wear face coverings when indoors on all school campuses, regardless of their vaccination status.

Also, the results of At-Home Tests (Rapid Antigen tests recommended) may be utilized to clear persons to return to school in the updated scenarios above. RUSD required the submittance of an At-Home Test Validation Form and along with a photo of the result.
