    The California Department of Public Health released new guidance for schools concerning novel coronavirus. While the Department recognizes the health risk to the general public in California remains low, there has been an increase in cases worldwide, and travel anywhere in China in the past 14 days is considered a risk factor for novel coronavirus infection.


    As such, all students who traveled from mainland China and arrived in the United States since February 3, 2020 should plan to stay home from school for 14 days, beginning the day after they left China. Please note, at this time, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan are not included in this guidance.


    If this applies to you or your family, please be sure to contact your physician and inform your child’s school administration.


    Students who are temporarily excluded for this reason will be considered to be excused and are eligible to receive school work/assignments that can be completed independently and turned in upon returning to school after the exclusion period.


    To protect the health of our students and staff, we consistently follow the California Department of Public Health’s guidance for children who appear to be sick. There are also important steps that you can take at home to help prevent the spread of illnesses, including influenza and gastroenteritis.


     Stay home when sick.
       - Remain at home until fever has been gone for at least 24 hours without the use
    of fever-reducing medicines.

       - Seek immediate medical care if symptoms become more severe (e.g., high fever
    or difficulty breathing).
     Use “respiratory etiquette” and cover cough with a tissue or sleeve.
     Wash hands frequently.
     If you haven’t done so yet, ensure you and your family have received a flu shot. While
    the flu shot won’t prevent coronavirus illnesses, it can protect from other illnesses.
     Face masks are most useful for preventing disease spread when they are worn by
    people who have symptoms.
      
    Ensuring a safe, supportive, and positive school climate reflects our core values and is essential to high quality learning for every student. In light of the fact that travel restrictions regarding novel coronavirus are focused on mainland China, we urge you to avoid behaviors or conversations that may stigmatize students, their families, or our staff.


    Thank you for your time, concern, and cooperation. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact your local school office.

    El Departamento de Salud Pública de California publicó una nueva guía para las escuelas sobre el nuevo coronavirus. El Departamento reconoce que el riesgo para la salud del público en general en California sigue siendo bajo, aunque ha habido un aumento de los casos en todo el mundo, y viajar a cualquier parte de China en los últimos 14 días se considera un factor de riesgo de una infección por el coronavirus.

     

    Como tal, todos los estudiantes que viajaron desde China continental y llegaron a los Estados Unidos desde el 3 de febrero de 2020 deberían planear quedarse en casa y no ir a la escuela durante 14 días, comenzando el día después de que salieron de China. Tenga en cuenta que, en este momento, Hong Kong, Macao y Taiwán no están incluidos en esta guía.

     

    Si esto se aplica a usted o su familia, asegúrese de contactar con su médico e informar al director de la escuela de su hijo

    Los estudiantes que están restringidos por esta razón se exentaran sus ausencias y serán elegibles para recibir tareas y trabajos de las escuelas que podrán realizar independientemente en casa y entregarlos cuando regresen a la escuela, después del periodo de exclusión.

     

    Para proteger la salud de nuestros estudiantes y nuestro personal, seguimos de manera constante la orientación del Departamento de Salud Pública de California para los niños que parecen estar enfermos. También hay pasos importantes que pueden tomar en casa para ayudar a prevenir la propagación de enfermedades, incluidas la gripe y la gastroenteritis.

     

     Quédese en casa cuando esté enfermo.
       - Permanezca en casa hasta que la fiebre haya desaparecido durante al menos 24

    horas sin el uso de medicamentos para reducir la fiebre.

       - Busque atención médica inmediata si los síntomas se vuelven más graves, por

    ejemplo, fiebre alta o dificultad para respirar.

     

      Use “etiqueta respiratoria” y cubra la tos con un pañuelo o una manga.

      Lavarse las manos con frecuencia.

      Si aún no lo ha hecho, asegúrese de que usted y su familia hayan recibido la vacuna

    contra la gripe. La vacuna contra la gripe no previene las enfermedades por coronavirus,

    pero puede proteger contra otras enfermedades.

      Las máscaras faciales son más útiles para prevenir la propagación de enfermedades cuando las usan personas con síntomas.

     

    Garantizar un clima escolar seguro, de apoyo y positivo refleja nuestros valores fundamentales y es esencial para el aprendizaje de alta calidad para cada estudiante. En vista del hecho de que las restricciones de viaje con respecto al nuevo coronavirus se centran en China continental, le recomendamos que evite comportamientos o conversaciones que puedan estigmatizar a los estudiantes, sus familias o nuestro personal.

     

    Agradecemos su tiempo esfuerzo y cooperación. Si tiene preguntas o cualquier preocupación le recomendamos ponerse en contacto con el personal de su escuela local.

    FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL AND IMPORTANT DATES

    August 16, 2019

    Dear Sunshine Gardens Families,

    We are very lucky to have you and your student as part of our school community. I strongly feel that every family and community member has a gift to share with and that they offer many experiences and skills from which we can learn. It is for that reason that I thank you for choosing us. 

    Wednesday, was a very successful and exciting first day of school. Every student I saw at drop off, recess, and lunch, came in full uniform and was happy to be back. When I greeted parents, grandparents, and caregivers, they were happy to bring our students to school. I lost count of the hundreds of smiles that I saw throughout the day. Our teachers and staff, spent countless hours preparing desks, materials, and lessons. They expressed that students were on their best behavior and ready to learn. 

    I would like to also take the opportunity to share with you three important updates:

    • Due to the fact that we have students with severe nut allergies, we are a nut-free school. Please do not send any food item like granola bars, crackers, or sandwiches that contain nuts. If your student has any kind of nut allergy, please talk to their teacher and the office staff. 

    • We have a new gate in front of our school. As we streamline access procedures, the gate will not be locked. Next week, we will be holding a meeting with staff, district officials, the fire marshall, and a law enforcement officer to make sure that safety is at the forefront while involving all stakeholders. We will keep you posted of the outcome. We will be talking about gates, safety, student learning, and family engagement on Friday, Aug. 23 at 8:45 am, at Coffee with PTA in the multi-purpose room. Please come and join us. 

    • In order to be in alignment with all other schools in our district, we have changed our parent teacher conference week to Sep. 23 - 27.  That entire week, we will have minimum days. Dismissal will be at 1:00 pm. Please mark your calendars accordingly.

    Again, we thank you for being an integral part of our school community.

    Please contact our office if you have any questions at 650-877-8784.

     

    Sincerely,

    Mr. Gaytán

    Principal

    Estimadas familias de Sunshine Gardens,

    Es un verdadero gusto tener a usted y toda su familia como miembros de nuestra comunidad. Estoy muy seguro que las familias y cada miembro de nuestra comunidad escolar tienen un regalo que compartir y también ofrecen muchas experiencias y habilidades de las que todos podemos aprender. Es por eso que les agradezco por habernos escogido como escuela.

    El miércoles fue un día maravilloso como primer día escolar.  Cada estudiante que tuve la oportunidad de observar en el área de despedida, el recreo y el almuerzo, portaba el uniforme y mostraba alegría de estar de regreso a clases. Cuando saludé a los padres, abuelos y guardianes se mostraron contentos de traer a los estudiantes. Yo perdí la cuenta de los cientos de sonrisas que noté durante el día. Nuestros maestros y otro personal,  invirtieron incontables horas para preparar los escritorios, los materiales y las lecciones. Además, nos expresaron que los estudiantes mostraron su mejor conducta y vinieron listos para aprender.

    También me gustaría aprovechar esta oportunidad para compartirles 3 puntos importantes:

    • Debido a que tenemos varios estudiantes que tienen severas alergias hacia las nueces, somos una escuela libre de nueces. Favor no enviar comida como barras de granola,  galletas, o emparedados que contengan nueces. Si su estudiante tiene una alergia a las nueces, favor de notificar a la/el maestra-o y la oficina de inmediato. 

    • Hemos instalado una reja enfrente de la oficina. Mientras delineamos todos los procedimientos para el acceso, les informamos que esa reja no se mantendrá con llave. La próxima semana, tendremos una reunión con el personal, los oficiales del distrito, el departamento de bomberos y la policía, para asegurarnos que la seguridad es lo más importante e involucrar a todos. Los mantendremos informados de nuestros acuerdos. Los invitamos a hablar acerca de la seguridad, la nueva reja, el aprendizaje, y participación familiar este viernes, 23 de agosto a las 8:45 am en la cafetería durante el Café con PTA.

    • Para poder alinearnos con otras escuelas del distrito, hemos cambiado nuestra semana de juntas de padres y maestros para el 23 al 27 de septiembre.  Esa semana, todos los días serán días mínimos y los estudiantes saldrán a la 1:00 pm. Favor de marcar sus calendarios.

    De nuevo, les agradecemos de corazón por ser miembros valiosos de nuestra comunidad escolar y los invitamos a participar en nuestras reuniones.

    Favor de contactar a la oficina al (650) 877-8784, si tienen alguna pregunta.

     

    Atentamente,

    Sr. Gaytán,

    Director

    Escuela Primaria Sunshine Gardens

    parking lot procedures

    At Sunshine Gardens, student safety is a priority. One of the busiest times of day on our campus is the arrival and dismissal of our 400 plus students. Staff has been working hard to update our existing procedures to ensure student safety. 

    To help us keep our school safe please remember:

    • 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.

    Morning Drop Off:

    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 to violate the parking lot rules, 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. With so many children arriving at school and so many parents and caregivers driving in and out of the parking lot, it can become a dangerous place if not kept orderly. 

    Dismissal / After-School Pick Up:

    • All students in grades 1-5 will be walked out to the front of the school by their teacher at 2:40 PM 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 must 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!
