It’s Sac City Scroll time!
Dear Sac City Unified Families,
We have many appreciation days and weeks coming up for school staff! Yesterday, we celebrated School Bus Driver Appreciation Day. Our dedicated bus drivers were treated to a feast and games between their morning and afternoon routes. Today is School Administrative Professionals Day, honoring all of the hardworking office staff who keep our schools running smoothly. Next week, May 1-5, is both School Lunch Hero Week and Teacher Appreciation Week! Plus, it’s School Principal’s Day on May 1 and School Nurse Day on May 10. So, if you have a chance when dropping off or picking up your student at school, thank a staff member for all they do for these amazing kids.
Free Summer Programs
Give your child the opportunity to participate in a meaningful and engaging summer learning experience. Students in our summer programs will learn skills to transition and succeed in the 2023-2024 school year through collaboration, relationship building and social emotional learning. They will also enjoy enrichment activities that include music, dance, visual arts, theater arts, field trips, physical play and exercise.
All students will be provided with a daily breakfast and lunch. Our Summer Matters@SCUSD sites will serve as community schools, allowing all district students to enroll at any site. Summer Matters applications must be submitted by Monday, May 15, 2023. Parents will be notified of enrollment between May 30 and June 9. Learn more and apply today!
Inter- and Intra-District Permit Applications Open
Between April 1 and May 1, families have the opportunity to transfer from another district into SCUSD schools AND SCUSD students may also apply to switch to a different school other than their neighborhood school. The first step is to create a SchoolMint account, add a student and indicate whether your student is currently enrolled in SCUSD schools. Instructions for creating this account and how to apply for an inter- or intra-district permit transfer can be found here. Permits are approved based on space availability at the school of your choice, and grades, attendance and discipline reports will also be considered.
