SRES Family Newsletter for the week of November 30, 2020

Hope your break was wonderful!

Monday, November 30 is a Hybrid B Day.

Picture Retakes are scheduled for Monday, 11/30 & Tuesday, 12/01.

Pictures will be processed and sent home with your student(s) when they are ready.

After receiving your student's picture, if you would like to do retakes, please return the purchased pictures with your student on their re-take day.

If your student missed picture day or they are new to Sunset Ranch Elementary School, they should plan on taking a picture on picture retake day.

If you weren't able to order a picture on or before picture day, you should have received a proof sheet of your student's image. The proof sheet has instructions on how to order after the fact.

RVC students can check into the office during 8:00 - 12:00 a.m. on either day to take a picture.

Welcome to Ranch!

You will see a new face at the Ranch. Please welcome Karen Huffines who will be serving all Coyotes in an administrative support role.
