Schools will close for the next week at the end of today, and District Offices will be open on Monday and Tuesday of next week only.  Students will return to school on Monday, November 29th, and will complete the semester on December 17th. 

Thank you for your continued support and cooperation throughout this first quarter of the school year.  While we are learning to manage the COVID-19 related issues, your patience has helped us to implement the ever changing health directives as expeditiously as possible.  It has also helped keep our focus on ensuring that our students continue to learn, while also addressing the social-emotional needs created by this unprecedented time.

As we end our 2nd week of school, we are so pleased to have your children back in our classrooms.  We have had a busy first week of school, but so appreciate your help and support in having your children arrive at school on time, with their SafeScreener completed, and ready to learn.  We also thank you for attending the Back to School Night Programs that have already been held or upcoming.

We continue to monitor our staff and students to control the spread of the COVID virus, so being thorough and thoughtful when completing the SafeScreener for your children is a key.  

The County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health is adopting a staged approach, supported by science and public health expertise, to enable schools serving students from transitional kindergarten through grade12 to reopen safely. In addition to the conditions imposed on schools by the State Public Health Officer and the California Department of Education, schools must also be in compliance with these employee and student safety and infection control protocols.

We are so excited and looking forward to welcoming our students back to school on August 4th.  Be looking for specific information such as start time, teacher assignments, lunch and breakfast schedules, and opening activities from the principal of your child’s school this week.   

During the past few months, several changes were made and others reinforced by legislation and regulation in our state.  So, here are some answers to frequently requested information:

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.
