School and Home Communication
Sunkist maintains a school website that has current school information, including a monthly Newsletter. Teachers will maintain contact with parents/guardians using platforms including phone calls, notes, and text messages. Communication between home and school is essential to the success of all of our students and is a priority.
Social and Emotional Support
We realize that many students may be experiencing anxiety or fear about returning to school in the current situation. We want to make sure that this does not interfere with their ability to learn. Sunkist's amazing counselor Maria Pilotzi is on campus to support our students while in school, and she also has information to provide support for students and families from outside agencies. Please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance.
Thank you for your support as we begin the 2021-2022 school year. Sunkist School staff is committed to working with you and your child to provide a positive learning experience. Please feel free to contact the school at (805) 986-8722 if you have any questions.

BACK TO SCHOOL 2021-MASKING INFORMATION
JUL 28, 2021
According to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), recent evidence indicates that in-person instruction can occur safely without a minimum physical distancing requirement when other mitigation strategies are implemented.
As California schools plan for a complete return to in-person instruction for the 2021-22 school year, universal masking and other Covid-19 mitigation strategies will be prioritized.
Remember, Sunkist uses School Uniforms
Top- White, light blue, or dark blue, or forest green polo style
