Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,
As we enter the cold and flu season, coupled with ongoing concerns related to COVID-19, we want to prioritize the health and well-being of our school community. While wearing masks is recommended to help mitigate the spread of illnesses, it is not mandatory. We encourage everyone to exercise personal responsibility and consider their own health and the well-being of others. Our school remains committed to maintaining a safe and inclusive environment for all, and we appreciate your cooperation in adhering to best practices for hygiene and illness prevention. Regular handwashing, staying home when feeling unwell, and keeping up with vaccinations are essential measures we can all take to promote a healthy school environment. Thank you for your continued support in keeping our community safe and resilient.

Check out Sutter Elementary School! Ms. Jenna, our new librarian, put together a Poet-Tree. Teachers shared their favorite poems from Shel Silverstein and students created their own poems, which were added to our Poet-Tree for National Portry month. Check out our newly reopened library and our “Poet tree”, next week during our book fair.
