The Back to School Potluck was a huge success this past Friday night. Thank you so much for the PTA that helped and to Sal Rodriguez who organized all the booths. It was such a fun evening with delicious food, music, and a wonderful community!
The Staff at Sunshine Gardens is excited to meet with you!!! The week of September 26th is devoted to Parent Teacher Conferences. All students will be excused at 1:00 daily the entire week.
We are still looking for parents that are interested in serving on the School Site Council. Please let me know personally or via email if you are interested. We usually meet once a month. This committee is a great way to get involved.
Supervision: Between 8:15 and 8:30 there will be supervision offered for all grade levels Kindergarten-5th grade on our main playground. Parents may walk their students to the playground and attend our morning assembly at 8:30.
Sunshine Gardens’ Parking Lot Procedures:
-At Sunshine Gardens, student safety is a priority. Sunshine Gardens Safety Plan includes a policy to help ensure the safety of all students, families, and visitors to the school as they enter or depart from the parking lot. One of the busiest times of the day on our campus is the arrival and dismissal of over 400 students. Staff has been working hard to update our existing procedures to ensure student safety.
-The Speed Limit in the parking lot is 5 mph.
-During the hours of 7:45-8:35 and 2:30-2:55 we ask that parents park on the street in front of the school. Please do not double park on the street or park in red zones on either side of our gates. We continue to accommodate any handicapped vehicles within the school parking lot.
If you would like to drop-off your student, Sunshine Gardens has designated a specific area in front of the Leo J. Ryan School as an unloading zone. Please pull up to the yellow line and a volunteer wearing a yellow vest will be there to assist. Although it is tempting we ask that you drop off your student in the designated “drop off” area only. Please do not let your child exit the car in front of the cafeteria or in front of office.
Dismissal Pick Up:
All students in grades 1-5 will be walked out to the front of the school by their teacher at 2:40 on regular school days.
-If you are picking up a student after school, remain in your car and form a line in the drop off line.
-Students are to wait for you in the loading area in front of Leo J. Ryan.
-When waiting in the load/unload area pull forward to the yellow line to allow other cars to move forward.
- We ask that you do not leave your car unattended in the loading area - you must remain in your car!
Thank you for working in partnership with the Sunshine staff in order to keep our children safe and traffic moving smoothly. Your cooperation, patience, and kindness is essential to our school community.
