We are pleased to let you know that an agreement has been reached between the District and Westside Union Teachers Association that will allow our elementary schools to reopen under the current health orders in our state and county.
This update includes information on the following:
Schedule of return for students
Checking Into School
In this summary:
Westside USD Reopening plans awaiting approval. Available on District and School Websites.
The TK-6th grade students in mild/moderate special day classes will return February 16th and the TK/K cohorts will return on February 22nd.
Parents will receive information about the new system for daily check-in which is currently required. You will find information about that system and directions for using it on the website. You will also find a video to help you with setting up the system either on your phone or on another device.
Some additional changes that have been made to facilitate reopening schools include the addition of 654 GPS ionizers to all HVAC units district-wide. These ionizers kill 99% of all germs, bacteria, and viruses, and are Underwriter’s Laboratories certified to deliver clean indoor air that is safe and healthy.
Monday, February 15th is Presidents Day. Our schools will be closed for that day.
At Sundown Elementary School, our positive school environment fosters mutual respect for one another. This requires parent, school, and student responsibility to assure academic success, the development of appropriate social skills, the enhancement of student self- esteem, and knowledge of the Anti-Bullying Policies. We look forward to your continued involvement in your child’s education and your participation in school events throughout the coming year. Our goal is to strengthen the home-school relationship by building a strong partnership with parents. Parents have an open invitation to volunteer, to participate, and to share in the setting and achievement of our school’s goals for our children through School Site Council (SSC), the PTA, English Learner’s Advisory Committee (ELAC), and District level committees.
Sundown, located in the northwest portion of the Antelope Valley, near the intersection of Avenue J and 60th Street West houses approximately 1050 students. While the student ethnic profile at Sundown includes representation from a broad spectrum of races, the majority of students are Hispanic and Caucasian. Our school site is composed of a main building built in 1994 and 18 permanent portables. We also have after school child care programs facilitated by the YMCA and one through the City of Lancaster.
