Effective for our students and our staff, wearing masks in Los Angeles County remains strongly recommended in schools, however, this will no longer be a requirement. So, when students and staff return to school on Monday, March 14th, mask wearing will be optional

More topics in this letter include:

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has lifted the requirement that students wear masks outdoors at school.  Effective with the opening of school tomorrow morning, our students no longer need to wear their masks outdoors on the campus.  If you or your child continue to feel safer wearing a mask outdoors, please feel free to do that also. Indoor masking remains a requirement, but it appears that the Public Health Agencies are indicating that the data on COVD-19 continues to show marked improvement.  However, students still need to wear their masks while inside the classroom.

Just a reminder that the transfer process begins on March 1, 2022 and will close for the 1st round of transfers on April 15, 2022.  Applications can be completed online.

A Little Bit About Sundown...

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.
