Superintendent Friday Updates to Families

Friday Update, October 23, 2020


Good evening Sulphur Springs Families, this is Dr. Catherine Kawaguchi, your Superintendent with your Friday Update, October 23, 2020.

 

As a reminder, the District is working on submitting applications for our students in grades TK-2 to return to school. Yesterday, Superintendents were informed by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health that Districts are not required to submit a letter of support from unions and/or parents. However, they did ask that Districts consult with them. I want our families to know that both of our unions are in support of opening our schools for students in grades TK-2. Also, I am reviewing the survey results from the parents, and we are also seeing that families are supporting schools to reopen as well. Thank you for your support as we prepare to bring our students back for in-person instruction. We know that it has been a long 7 months, but we know that by partnering together we can continue to do great things for our students. 

 

I wanted to share with you that the SCV School Food Services Agency is now providing nutritious meals to all children for both Saturday and Sunday. All weekend meals will be distributed on Fridays during the regular meal service period. Please note that there will not be a food distribution on October 30th for the Sulphur Springs Union School District since this is a non-student day. Food for Friday and the Saturday will be packaged together and given out on Thursday, October 29th. If a family is not able to pick up food on October 29th, please know that you can go to another school in our neighboring districts to receive meals for your family.

Just a reminder, if you have not completed a food application, you can complete it online at www.schooldaycafe.org or turn it in at any of the schools at the front office, or during the food distribution period from 11:30-1:00PM, Monday through Friday. You can just hand the application to one of the food service employees during the food distribution period and it will be taken to the office and sent to the Santa Clarita Valley Food Services. Unfortunately, the District has seen a significant drop in parents returning applications, and the District will see a reduction in State funding for educational programs if our numbers do not increase. Please know that we still have time to make a difference to increase our funding. I have attached the application form to this message so that you can fill it out and turn it in. Our students thank you for taking the time to complete the application.

For this Friday Update, I want to end by asking you to take a moment and listen to the video- ‘Good Job.’ This video is dedicated to all of our parents and the Sulphur Springs Staff who are doing amazing work for our children. Our children need us to continue to work each and every day to make a difference in their lives. Thank you.

Informe para el viernes, 23 de octubre de 2020

 

Buenas tardes familias de Sulphur Springs, les llamamos con el informe del viernes 23 de octubre a nombre de la Dra. Catherine Kawaguchi, su superintendente.

Como recordatorio, el distrito escolar está trabajando en el trámite de solicitudes para que nuestros estudiantes en los grados TK-2º regresen a la escuela. Ayer, el Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado de Los Ángeles informó a los superintendentes que los distritos no están obligados a presentar una carta de apoyo de los sindicatos y/o de los padres. Sin embargo, pidieron que los distritos consultaran con ellos. Quiero que nuestras familias sepan que nuestros dos sindicatos apoyan la apertura de nuestras escuelas para estudiantes en los grados TK-2º. Además, estoy revisando los resultados de la encuesta para padres, y también estamos viendo que las familias también están apoyando la reapertura de las escuelas. Gracias por su apoyo mientras nos preparamos para traer a nuestros estudiantes de regreso para recibir la educación en persona. Sabemos que han sido 7 meses largos, pero sabemos que si colaboramos juntos podemos seguir haciendo grandes cosas para nuestros estudiantes.

Quería compartir con ustedes que la Agencia de Servicios de Alimentos Escolares de SCV ahora está proporcionando comidas nutritivas a todos los niños tanto el sábado como el domingo. Todas las comidas de fin de semana se distribuirán los viernes durante el período de servicio regular de comidas. Tengan en cuenta que no habrá una distribución de alimentos el 30 de octubre para el Distrito Escolar de Sulphur Springs Union ya que este es un día sin estudiantes. Los alimentos para el viernes y el sábado se empaquetarán juntos y se entregarán el jueves 29 de octubre. Si una familia no puede recoger comida el 29 de octubre, sepan que pueden ir a otra escuela en nuestros distritos vecinos para recibir comida para su familia.

 Solo un recordatorio, si no han completado una solicitud de alimentos, pueden completarla en línea en www.schooldaycafe.org o entregarla en la dirección de cualquiera de las escuelas, o durante el período de distribución de alimentos de 11:30-1:00 PM, de lunes a viernes. Pueden simplemente entregar la solicitud a uno de los empleados del servicio de alimentos durante el período de distribución de alimentos, se llevará a la oficina y se enviará a los Servicios de Alimentos del Valle de Santa Clarita. Desafortunadamente, el distrito escolar ha visto una caída significativa en la entrega de solicitudes por parte de los padres, y el distrito verá una reducción en los fondos estatales para programas educativos si nuestros números no aumentan. Tengan en cuenta que todavía tenemos tiempo de hacer una diferencia para aumentar nuestra financiación. He incluido el formulario de solicitud a este mensaje para que puedan contestarlo y entregarlo. Nuestros estudiantes les agradecen por tomarse el tiempo para completar la solicitud.

 Para este informe del viernes, quiero terminar pidiéndoles que se tomen un momento y escuchen el video: "Buen trabajo". Este video está dedicado a todos nuestros padres y al personal de Sulphur Springs que están haciendo un trabajo increíble para nuestros niños. Nuestros niños necesitan que sigamos trabajando todos los días para hacer una diferencia en sus vidas. Gracias.
