We Engage We Educate We Inspire

Stallion Families,

This week is the last week of what feels like a very long school year. I want to thank each and every one of you for your patience and flexibility throughout the year. This has been a year like none other, and while it has had its challenges, I believe the Sonoma Ranch community had a successful 2020-21 school year.


All Chromebooks need to be returned to school on Monday, May 24. If your student has a Chromebook at home, please send it and the power cord to school on Monday. Thank you!

Students Last Day

Thursday is the last day for students. Dismissal is at 11:55 AM. Prior to dismissal all students will be participating in the 6th Grade Walk. Between 11:15 and dismissal at 11:55 your student will be unavailable. If you need to pick your student up prior to dismissal, plaese plan to do so before 11:15 AM on Thursday.

Families of 6th graders, the 6th Grade Walk will end on the intermeidate basketball courts. If you have younger students who you plan to take home as well that day, please instruct them to head to the basketball courts at dismissal. We will help facilitate that process. Please let your student's teachers know as well.

Do Not Come To School

I need to remind everyone that students should not come to school if they, or anyone in their household has tested positive for COVID. Students who are sick or feeling any COVID-like symptoms can’t be on campus.


Thank you for reading the Round-Up. As always, if you have any questions, please email me at and I will be in touch.

Be Safe!

Lunch (and breakfast) is Free

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended free meals for children 18 years and younger until further notice to help ensure all children have access to nutritious food as the country recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gilbert Public Schools will provide combo meals at no cost to students for breakfast and lunch. A combo meal includes an entree, fruit and/or vegetable and beverage (milk and/or juice).

We certainly encourage our families to take advantage of this opportunity.
