It’s Sac City Scroll time!
Dear Sac City Unified Families,
There is no school on Monday, February 20 in observance of President’s Day. We hope your student enjoys the long weekend!
Were you affected by the power outages and storms in late December and most of January by one or more of the issues below?
- Loss of income due to not being to go to work
- Damage to home or self-employment property
- Loss of food
- Disaster-related expenses that will not be reimbursed
- Not able to access bank accounts
If any of the above applies, you MAY qualify for one month’s worth of Disaster CalFresh benefits. Applications are available online at mybenefitscalwin.org, by phone at 916-876-4357 or by walking into any Department of Human Assistance office between 8am-4pm.
Central Kitchen Mobile Food Truck
We’re excited to announce that our Central Kitchen food truck will be showing up at eight of our middle schools for breakfast service during the weeks of March 6 and March 13. The mobile food truck was funded by No Kid Hungry with the goals of improving access to the school breakfast program and summer food service program. The Central Kitchen Food Truck is intended to offer freshly prepared meals that entice our students to participate in a healthy breakfast so they perform better in the classroom. Studies show a balanced breakfast improves student memory, alertness and concentration and decreases behavioral and psychological problems with lower rates of absenteeism and tardiness.

Covid At-Home Test Kits
We’re seeing a slight uptick in COVID cases in Sacramento County, so please use the provided at-home test kit you received last week. Also, check your student’s backpack this Thursday and Friday for another round of at-home test kits that will be distributed before the long weekend. Don’t forget to report your test results at primary.health! This has proven to be an effective strategy for keeping Covid cases out of our schools.
