Welcome to Sac City Scroll!
Dear Sac City Unified families,
We hope your school year is off to a great start! As you may have noticed already, we’re taking a new approach to our district newsletter. Based on parent feedback and engagement data, we’ll now send your district newsletter once every two weeks, beginning today. Future newsletters will be sent every other Wednesday, with the exception of school holidays. We know you get a lot of communication from your school site as well. Our goal is to keep our families informed without overwhelming you with too much information.
So here it is, your new Sac City Scroll!
