Dear Sutter Families,

Despite the many challenges you are facing my hope is that you have found a new routine that includes a balance between work and fun.  If there is anything I have learned during our stay-at-home order, it is the importance of separating work and non-work activities.

This week’s message is twofold:

First, as you schedule school time, also schedule family fun time. Mom, dad, and/or guardian, you need time, too. As you care for others, remember that you also need to care for yourselves, even if it is just a few minutes a day. Once you make a commitment to a dedicated time for yourselves, I hope you will notice how much better you will feel and, how much better you will be able to care for others.

Second, last week many of you checked-out laptops providing your child(ren) the opportunity to participate in online learning. If you are having any technical difficulties with laptops, you may request support from our Technology Department at or (925)779-7676, M-F, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. When requesting support, please remember to leave your name, email address or telephone number.

Please continue to check your emails regularly to receive the most up-to-date information from your child’s teacher. Should you have questions regarding any of your child’s online instruction, please do not hesitate to reach out to them as every teacher has daily office hours. I am also available at, should you need my assistance.

Let’s all stay safe and healthy by staying home and beating COVID together.


Kind regards,

Susan Valdez
