Good Morning Sunnyside Parents. Thank you for helping make this morning’s student drop off a success. Just a reminder… if you are RUNNING LATE you will need to drop the students off in the parking lot and have the students enter the gate near the auditorium. THE LATE BELL RINGS at 8:15. This gate will remain open throughout the day. You may also park in the lot wherever space is available. The SOUTHWEST portion of the lot has been designated for parents and visitors. We will try the parking lot pickup this afternoon and MAKE ADJUSTMENTS as needed. Also, preschool parents can park in front of the school and in the bus circle (lane closest to center). If you park in the bus circle this should be for pickup and drop off, not extended stays. We are doing this to eliminate parking across the street, double and triple parking, and U-Turns in front of the school. It has also been recommended that campuses go to a single point entrance for security purposes.
SRO - Sunnyside has a School Resource Officer (Sheriff) available to help out our students/staff. Thank you to the TC Sheriffs Department for providing this valuable resource. The SRO will assist in pertinent cases and events and also provide PROACTIVE support for our students.

Come visit Sunnyside Gardens and purchase plants (tomatoes, peppers, flowers, etc.). Plants are on sale for $2.50 each. They look wonderful. Proceeds will go to towards the Sunnyside Gardening Program.
