SAUSD FACE Newsletter: September 4, 2020

Dear FACE Partners,

Happy Friday and end of third week of the 2020-2021 academic year!

I understand how trying turbulent times are for all of us and cannot even begin to image or try to lump all our individual experiences as a monolith. However, I want to reiterate how important each one of you

is to me and how important you and your service is to our community.

Every day is a new experience and sometimes our lives collide, and we do not know which way is up. On the darkest of days and every day in between, I ask you to please have hope! Let your actions and the hope for positively impacting lives, serving our community, growing as professionals and individuals be your guide! So many of Dr. King's teachings and words are applicable today and I refuse to believe or accept the current situation defines us as a culture, nation, or people. I have hope in our future because I KNOW who I am walking with -YOU- and for that I am hopeful and blessed.

Thank you for being you!


Susie Lopez-Guerra, Ed.D.

SAUSD Nutrition Services Update

The Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD) is renewing its commitment to providing free, nutritious food for students by continuing to distribute meals at all schools sites even as the District pivots to full online learning for the start of the new school year.

  • Every SAUSD school campus will have lunchtime meal service beginning Aug. 17, 2020. Meals will be served Monday through Friday in a walk-up fashion; distribution times will vary by location. Students will receive a lunch, a “super snack” (supper), and breakfast for the next day.

  • Parents/guardians and students can pick up meals at any school site regardless of where they are enrolled, and meals must be consumed off-site.

  • Free meals will only be available to enrolled SAUSD students. Students do not need to be present, however a student’s name and I.D. number are required.

  • Parents/guardians and students can pick up their meal service I.D. cards at their enrolled school.

  • Meal service I.D. cards are not required to be served a meal, however, parents/guardians and students are highly encouraged to scan their I.D. cards to keep lines moving faster.

  • SAUSD will continue to abide by social distancing guidelines during lunchtime meal service for the safety of our school communities. Parents/guardians and students picking up meals for children must wear a face covering and maintain six feet of separation at all times.
Complete Here the Meal Pick Up Survey

Parents/guardians and students who plan to pick up meals are encouraged to fill out this survey to enter the student information, to designate the school location where they want to pick up meals and include special meals for students with allergies.
