2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR COMMITMENT FORM
We are excited to have your student(s) back for the upcoming school year! Please let us know if you plan to return for the new school year in August 2020 by filling out this commitment form. Be sure...
July 2, 2020 Dear Sunnyside Families – Earlier this week, Governor Ducey announced the delay of in-person learning to August 17. However, this date reflects an aspirational hope that it will be safe for us to return in-person. The reality is, given the increase in COVID-19 cases across the state, we may have to move the in-person start date again. I believe this creates great uncertainty for our parents and staff. The effect of this uncertainty is the delay of essential educational services that students and families depend on. Although we are facing some challenging times, we are unwavering in our commitment to serve our students, families and staff. It is not in the best interest of our learning community to delay the essential educational services that students and families depend on. For Sunnyside, this means the first day of school will remain August 5th through remote learning. While starting school completely online is not ideal, I am confident that we are prepared for a remote learning environment given our track record of using technology as an essential instructional tool for the past 10 years. We are committed to offering your child a quality uninterrupted learning experience. Our teachers and curriculum staff have been working all summer to ensure that we can remotely deliver the same rigorous curriculum that would have been offered in person. This online experience will be different from what you experienced during the initial school closures. Our expectation is that teachers deliver content five days a week and require scheduled times for students to be online receiving instruction. For a more detailed description on this remote learning experience, please visit susd12.org/responsible-reopening. As you may know, we traditionally issue Chromebooks to 4th–12th grade students at the beginning of the school year and students are able to take these devices home. In order to accommodate the transition to K-12 remote learning, we will also provide a device to all K–3rd grade students. Your school will provide you with information about picking up devices prior to the first day of school. Furthermore, we are excited to share with you that we have implemented a new enrollment system that will allow families to complete the registration process entirely online. In the coming days, please look out for a letter that will have a code that is specific to your students’ registration. The safety and well-being of our students and staff is at the forefront of our decision-making. As we responsibly move forward with planning for an in-person 5 days a week return on August 17th or at some other date in the 2020-21 school year, we will provide you with updates on how we will implement the health guidelines outlined by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Pima County Health Department. Lastly, as a parent of two school-aged children myself, I hear your concerns and share the stress of this ever-changing situation with you. Your child’s principal will be providing more communication throughout the next few weeks prior to school starting remotely on August 5th​. I thank you for your patience, trust and commitment to the Sunnyside learning community. I am confident that together we will emerge from this stronger and better. Sincerely, Steve Holmes Superintendent 2 de julio, 2020 Estimadas familias de Sunnyside – A principios de esta semana, el gobernador Ducey anunció el retraso del aprendizaje en persona hasta el 17 de agosto. Sin embargo, esta fecha refleja una esperanza anhelada de que estaremos seguros para regresar a clases en persona. La realidad es, dada el aumento en los casos de COVID-19 en todo el estado, es posible que tengamos que mover la fecha de inicio en persona nuevamente. Yo pienso que esto crea una gran incertidumbre para nuestros padres y el personal. El efecto de esta incertidumbre es la demora de los servicios educativos esenciales de los que dependen los estudiantes y sus familias. Aunque nos enfrentamos a tiempos difíciles, estamos firmes en nuestro compromiso de servir a nuestros estudiantes, familias y personal. Esperar una fecha final de nuestro estado no es lo mejor para nuestra comunidad de aprendizaje ya que esto demora los servicios educativos esenciales de los que dependen los estudiantes y sus familias. Para Sunnyside, esto significa que el primer día de clases permanecerá el 5 de agosto a través del aprendizaje remoto. Si bien comenzar la escuela completamente en línea no es lo ideal, estoy seguro de que estamos preparados para un entorno de aprendizaje remoto dada nuestra trayectoria en el uso de la tecnología como una herramienta de instrucción esencial durante los últimos 10 años. Estamos comprometidos a ofrecerle a sus hijos una experiencia de aprendizaje sin interrupciones y de calidad. Nuestros maestros y el personal del plan de estudios han estado trabajando todo el verano para garantizar que podamos entregar de manera remota el mismo plan de estudios riguroso que se hubiera ofrecido en persona. Esta experiencia en línea será diferente de la que experimentaron durante el cierre inicial de la escuela. Nuestra expectativa es que los maestros entreguen contenido cinco días a la semana y requieran tiempos programados para que los estudiantes estén en línea recibiendo instrucción. Para una descripción más detallada sobre esta experiencia de aprendizaje remoto, visite susd12.org/responsible-reopening. Como ya sabrán, tradicionalmente emitimos Chromebooks a los estudiantes en 4o a 12o grados al comienzo del año escolar y los estudiantes pudieron llevarse estos dispositivos a casa. Con el fin de acomodar la transición al aprendizaje remoto K-12, también emitiremos dispositivos a nuestros estudiantes de K-3er grado. Su escuela les proporcionará información sobre los pasos para recoger el dispositivo de sus alumnos antes del primer día de clases. Además, nos complace compartir con ustedes que hemos implementado un nuevo software de inscripción que permitirá a las familias completar el proceso de matriculación en línea. En los próximos días, busquen una carta que tenga un código específico para la matriculación de su (s) estudiante (s). La seguridad y el bienestar de nuestros estudiantes y personal están a la vanguardia de nuestra toma de decisiones. A medida que avanzamos responsablemente con la planificación de un regreso en persona de 5 días a la semana el 17 de agosto o en otra fecha en el año escolar 2020-21, se les proporcionarán detalles sobre cómo planeamos implementar las pautas de salud descritas por el Centro para el Control de Enfermedades (CDC) y el Departamento de Salud del Condado de Pima. Por último, como padre de dos niños en edad escolar, entiendo sus inquietudes y comparto el estrés de esta situación siempre cambiante con ustedes. El director de la escuela de sus hijos proporcionará más comunicación durante las próximas semanas antes de que las clases comiencen de forma remota el 5 de agosto. Les agradezco su paciencia, confianza y compromiso con la comunidad de aprendizaje de Sunnyside. Estoy seguro de que juntos saldremos de esto más fuertes y más capaces.

Our Free or Reduced Meal Application is now Online! We just made it easier for you to fill out your student's meal application. The process is easy and only takes a few minutes.  Proceed to Meal Application NEED A PAPER APPLICATION? - See "How to submit a Paper Application below. How to Submit a Paper Application? Download the Application Print and submit pages 1 & 2 to either your child's school or mail in the application to: Department of Food & Nutrition - Application’s Office 2238 East Ginter Rd - Tucson, AZ 85706 PLEASE NOTE: We need only ONE application for all children in your household that attend school in SUSD. Things you'll need If you participate in SNAP, TANF, or FDPIR you will need to know your case number (not your card or account number) If you do not participate in any of the above assistance programs, you will need to report your total household income. In that case... If anyone in your household has a job, you may need to reference the earnings statement or pay stubs to report your gross income, which is different that the amount you actually receive in your paycheck. If anyone receives Social Security or retirement benefits, you may need to gather the benefit statements to report the amount and frequency of the payments. You may also need to reference other financial documents for additional sources of income. Your US citizenship or immigration status does not affect your eligibility for free or reduced price benefits. Frequently asked questions My child’s application was approved last year. Do I need to fill out a new one? Yes. Eligibility for free or reduced price meals only lasts for one school year. However, eligibility for the previous year carries over for the first few days of the new school year, or until the new eligibility determination is made. Please complete a new application for each school year. Do I need to fill out an application for each child? No. Use one free and reduced meal application for all students that attend school in Sunnyside USD in your household. If I don’t qualify now, may I apply later? Yes, you may apply at any time during the school year. For example, children with a parent or guardian who becomes unemployed may become eligible for free or reduced price meals if the household income drops below the income limit. My household participates in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and/or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). Are my children eligible for free meals? All children in households are eligible for free meals when at least one household member is receiving benefits from Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservation (FDPIR) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). If you participate in other assistance programs, contact Sunnyside USD to see if you qualify for school meal benefits. You may qualify for free meals! What if my household does not qualify for free or reduced price meal benefits based on income, but I have a foster child? Foster children who are formally placed by State Welfare Agency or Court in a caretaker household are eligible for benefits regardless of household income. I adopted a foster child. Are they still eligible for free meals? Congratulations on the adoption! And the answer is maybe. If your child was approved for free meals before the adoption went through, then your child is still eligible to receive free meals for the rest of the school year. But next year the child will no longer be eligible for free meals based on foster status, though they may still qualify based on household income, so we encourage you to submit an application. I get WIC. Can my children get free meals? Participation in the Special Supplement Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, or WIC program, does not automatically qualify your children for free or reduced price school meals. You will need to qualify based on your household income by completing this application. My family needs more help. Are there other programs we might apply for? To find out how to apply for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or other assistance benefits, contact Sunnyside USD. May I apply if someone in my household is not a U.S. citizen? Yes. You, your children, or other household members do not have to be U.S. citizens to apply for free or reduced price meals. Will my child or I be subject to public charge if I apply for or receive school meal benefits? No, the non-cash benefits received through the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Programs are not subject to public charge consideration. In other words, you will not be deported, denied entry to the country, or denied permanent status because you apply for receive school meal benefits. Will the information I give be checked? Yes, each application is reviewed by the district to determine eligibility. We may also ask you to send proof of your household’s income. What information will I need to fill out the application? If you have this information handy, it will make the application process fast and easy. If you participate in SNAP, TANF, FDPIR you will need to know your case number (not your card or account number). If you do not participate in any of the above assistance program, you will need to report your total household income. In that case… If anyone in your household has a job, you may need to reference the earnings statements or pay stubs to report your gross income, which is different than the amount in your paycheck. If anyone receives Social Security or retirement benefits, you may need to gather the benefit statements to report the amount and frequency of the payments. You may also need to reference other financial documents for additional sources of income. Still not sure if you have everything you need? Don’t worry. Each page of the application contains detailed instructions and explanations about the information you must include, and you can gather additional information then. Who should I include in my household? A household is defined as a group of people, related or unrelated, that usually live together and share income and expenses. Don’t forget to include people if you support them financially, regardless of whether they earn or receive income including: Foster children Children that are away at college or boarding school Grandparents Extended family members that are living with you Foreign exchange students that are living with you People that are not currently living with you, but are only away on a temporary basis (like kids that are away at college) Family members of the armed services who are away from home because they are activated or deployed People living away from home for an extended period of time (such as parents who live and work away from home) Other people who stay at your house and you provide with shelter, utilities, clothing, or food. You should NOT include: Renters Boarders Children who do not live with you (such as children that live permanently with other relatives or friends) Children for whom you do not have custody and therefore do not live with you (if you have joint custody, see the help question: WHAT IF I SHARE CUSTODY OF MY CHILD? What if I share custody of my child? If time is split between houses, both parents may apply for benefits. If the eligibility statuses are different, the highest level of benefits will apply. For example, if you qualify for free meals but your child’s other parent does not, no matter which house your child is staying at, he or she can still receive free meals. However, if either parent chooses not to have your child receive free meal benefits while residing with them then that parent may simply pay for the meals. What if I disagree with the school’s decision about my application? You should talk to school officials. You may ask for a hearing by calling or writing. Please review the information provided in the Letter to Household on the next page of the application for more details. What is a child income? Child income is money received from outside your household that is paid directly to your children. Many households do not have any child income. I’m not sure on which income frequency to select. What are the differences between the income frequencies? Weekly – You usually receive 1 paycheck each week. With this frequency you usually receive 52 paychecks per year. Every two weeks – You usually receive a paycheck every other week. Generally, you receive it on the same day each pay period, such as every other Friday. You usually receive 2 paychecks per month, though some months may differ. It usually equates to 26 paychecks per year. Twice per month – You usually receive 2 paychecks per month on certain scheduled days of the month, such as the 15th and 30th Depending on that day in the month it could fall on any day of the week. With this frequency, you usually receive 24 paychecks 24 a year. Monthly – You usually receive 1 paycheck during the month. With this frequency you typically receive 12 paychecks per year. If you receive an hourly income, you can convert it to a weekly frequency: Multiply your hourly rate by the number of hours you typically work in a week to get your Weekly income. (Example: $10 per hour X 40 hours per week = $400 per week) Annual income conversion – Multiply: Weekly income amount by 52 Every two weeks amount by 26 Twice per month amount by 24 Monthly income amount by 12

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   Sunnyside Alumni Association Awards $50,750 in Scholarships for Sunnyside Seniors   Tucson, AZ. April 29, 2020 — Forty-eight high school seniors were invited to a Google Hangout meeting for what they thought would be a discussion about graduation plans. Superintendent Steve Holmes and high school principals as well as District counselors conspired the surprise meeting to actually deliver the news that they were the recipients of a “Dollars for Scholars” scholarship. One of this year’s scholarship winners is Adilene Escalante Duran, a senior at Sunnyside High School. “My goal ever since I have been a little girl was to attend the University of Arizona, and now that the time is here I am looking for every opportunity possible to begin my journey. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for not only helping me but my family as well.” The Sunnyside Alumni Association awarded $50,750 in scholarships to support Sunnyside Unified School District (SUSD) students in their college plans. The scholarships ranged from $500 - $5,000 and were made possible through contributions from district employees, professional associations, community organizations, businesses, and individual donors. The goal of the Sunnyside Alumni Association is to promote graduation, lifelong learning and pride in SUSD.    About SUSD At Sunnyside, we are revolutionizing the public school experience by developing students who are college, career and community ready. Established in 1921 the Sunnyside Unified School District is the second-largest district in Southern Arizona serving more than 16,300 students and families.

Sunnyside High School, opened in 1955, is home to 2,400 students in Tucson, AZ. Sunnyside offers a wide variety of extracurricular programs, advanced placement courses, and specialized career and technical training programs. As a part of the Sunnyside Unified School District, Sunnyside High School is a celebrated historical pillar of the Tucson community.

Sunnyside is fully accredited through the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. It is a comprehensive high school that offers a plethora of rigorous and challenging courses. The foundation of its success is based in its Freshman Academy. This school within a school serves as a foundational environment which prepares incoming 9th graders for their tenure as high school students.

Once students have advanced into the upper grade levels they are invited to join one of three College and Career Academies. Each academy focuses on a career pathway where students can earn college credit, industry certifications and take part in work experiences and internships. This combination of core and elective classes has evolved Sunnyside into a culture of college and career readiness.

Additionally, the use of AVID instructional strategies and ample enrollment in Honors and Advanced Placement courses has propelled graduation rates and record amounts of scholarship offerings. This focus on learning and real world experiences has prepared our students for life after Sunnyside.

School Activities

Physical activities are a common form of recreation and a source of well-being, and are key to improving physical fitness and physical and mental health. Community activities give students the opportunity to better know themselves, to open up to others and to gain a better sense of belonging to their community. Community activities encourage students to play an active role in society and become responsible citizens and inspirational role models.
