3rd Trimester Update
Gary Storts
Friday, March 19, 2021

Good morning Pine Hill and South Bay families. After careful review of the 3rd Trimester survey data results and conversations with our teachers, the 3rd Trimester bell schedule will remain unchanged for both in-person and distance learners.

Subtle programmatic adjustments include 

  1. decreasing the physical space between students from 6 feet to 4 feet - increasing in-person learning opportunities for more student scholars, and
  2. providing Special Day Class students the ability to join one other stable group - allowing regular day classroom access.

If you would like to change your current learning plan, please contact your school as soon as possible. Any classroom adjustments will be parent-initiated and begin on March 29. If you completed the survey, you're all set, and no additional action is needed.

In the coming weeks, the District will be coordinating a free teacher-led Summer Learning Program and developing a 2021-22 school schedule that provides the maximum number of students on campus for the entire school day - including EXPLORE - for the South Bay School Board's consideration.  

As always, please feel free to contact me at your convenience at either (707) 267-9174 or gstorts@southbayusd.org.  

My Very Best, 

Gary Storts

Superintendent, South Bay Union Elementary School District
