Dear Sunset Elementary families,

   Starting off the school year with distance learning online is not ideal, but with this challenge comes new opportunities. Opportunities to learn life skills like time management and resourcefulness. Distance learning is going to require us to work together as a team to support our children. Trust that your teachers and staff will be reaching out to you to determine a learning schedule that will work with your home/work schedule. Flexibility and adaptability are going to be cornerstones to our success during this time. We will start school online on August 5, 2020. Textbooks and school supplies will be distributed to families on Friday, July 31 from 9:00am – 11:00am, and 4:00pm – 6:00pm.

 

Our district’s website for distance learning, www.hlpaction.com is where you will find several good resources for online learning for all grade levels. Every student has a login for their distance learning which is a single sign on. This means their login username and password gives them access to google classroom, zoom video conference, Wonders, Think Central, and many more applications for learning online. Classlink is the single sign in that students can use. Our school website, http://sunset.hlpschools.org, is where you can find all of our teacher’s email, as well as school nurse, librarian, and music teacher. If you require a laptop we can provide you a laptop which you can pick up at Sunset Elementary School, request a laptop survey

 

In order to find out which teacher your child has for the 2020-21 school year, you will need to have a parent AERIES portal account. You can create one, at https://hlpusd-ca.schoolloop.com/parentportal

 

The world changes quickly, and this global crisis is a reminder that the world is moving to a more virtual learning and working spaces, and if our students are not able to adapt, they will be left behind. Our teachers are excited about the virtual learning spaces they have created and hope the students take full advantage of it.

Parents, please know that we are here working to support you. We will give you whatever you need. We will continue to answer the front office phone number 626-933-3201, respond to emails, and communicate through remind app messages. Please don’t hesitate to ask any of us for anything you need and we will be happy to help.

 

We will miss our students tremendously and hope that we can all return together soon here at school. For the safety of all of our families, it is important that we shift our learning approach right now to stop the spread of this virus.

Sunset Tigers hear us ROAR!

Ms. Rosette Holmes, Principal of Sunset Elementary and OH School
