Good evening SBUSD families. This is a reminder that there is no school Thursday and Friday this week for the observation of Veterans Day. We will see you back at Pine Hill and South Bay Monday morning. Have a great four-day weekend!
Happy Halloween! We wish you a fun and safe night. Here's this week's PH/SB Newsletter. Please note that there is no school tomorrow, Monday, for staff professional development. We'll see you on Tuesday!
South Bay School District will hold our first online Listening Session on November 9, 2021, from 6-8 PM
The intention is to create an opportunity for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and People of Color) students and families to speak openly about their experiences at Pine Hill and South Bay. AND to share insights with the current school administration & faculty about lived experiences and how to improve equity efforts at Pine Hill and South Bay.
Spanish translation will be provided.
Please know this event is for BIPOC community members only (unless a BIPOC student’s family includes a white member) and specific listening audiences (e.g., school board members, administrators, faculty, and staff).
The Listen Session will be facilitated by Sharrone Blanck, Humboldt County Office of Education Learning Specialist – Equity and Inclusion, and Eureka, NAACP, President.
NOTE: The intention is to create space to explore topics alongside people who share identities and experiences. One of the most critical aspects of doing race-based affinity groups is to create a space that centers the needs and comfort of people of color – which seldom happens in mixed-race groups. Feedback from Listening Sessions in other local high school districts showed that students and community members of color found this forum helpful and healing. The South Bay School District looks forward to sharing our Listening Session takeaways at school board meetings and faculty meetings.
Future listening sessions will be open to different audiences so our community may continue growing and learning about ways to support all individuals.
Dates, Times, and Links for future Listening Sessions are TBD.
LINK WILL BE LIVE ON THE NIGHT OF THE EVENT.
Please contact Gary Storts, Superintendent, if you have any questions.
