Good afternoon Pine Hill and South Bay Stakeholders. I hope this correspondence finds you and yours well. As we continue to navigate crisis learning, March 15, 2021, marks the start of the 3rd Trimester - one year since COVID-19 impacted our campuses, straining structure and routine and affecting our ability to laugh and learn as a school community.

With the large majority of staff having received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, last night, the South Bay Governing Board provided direction to maximize the amount of on-campus, in-person learning we can offer our students in Trimester 3. The Board provided additional direction to maintain the safety mitigation measures outlined in the CDPH School Reopening Guidance and to continue offering our families the option of distance learning. Next week, I look forward to beginning these conversations with the South Bay Teachers' Association (SBTA) and the California Schools Employees' Association, Elk River Chapter 766.

In the coming weeks, please also look for additional outdoor school sports/athletics opportunities.

Lastly, the District is planning on providing a robust summer learning program for our students. Ran in unison with the EXPLORE Summer Program, a teacher-led Summer School program is in the planning stages. As a result, we are rescheduling the March Parent-Teacher Conferences for late May/early June, when teachers will have more information about their students' strengths and areas for growth. Later in the year, we will also be able to provide greater detail about our summer learning opportunities. If you have any immediate questions or concerns about your child, please reach out to your child's teacher or school principal.

As a community, I much appreciate your patience and flexibility. Please know that every employee on the Pine Hill and South Bay campuses work tirelessly to provide the best learning environment possible. As a parent and superintendent, I am inspired by my colleagues and proud to part of such a loving and caring community.

My Very Best,

Gary Storts, Superintendent
