    Dear Solana Highlands Families,

    SV Interim Housing Community Meetings 

    Last week the SV Interim Housing Committee (comprised of SV staff, Skyline staff, Solana Highlands staff, District staff and SV parents) met to begin the discussion of SV student housing during the 2020-2021 school year while construction of their new school ensues on their existing campus. The committee provided great insight and feedback on the housing options discussed. SV will be holding two community meetings on January 10 at 9:00 am and Jan 14 at 6:00 pm to share housing options and gather additional feedback. Input will be shared with the SBSD Board of Education at the Jan. 16th  BOE meeting as an Information only item.  No decisions will be made until the February 13th SBSD Board of Education meeting.

    Lost & Found

    Please be sure to check the Lost and Found before we close for Winter Break.

    Third Grade Leaders

    As our third graders lead the way as the oldest students on campus, they have been challenged to perform as many random acts of kindness as possible before the Winter Break. This is a great way for our 3rd grade students to model kindness and respect for our younger students and create a contagious factor…its working! Thank you to our 3rd grade teachers who are supporting this challenge and encouraging the acts of kindness to be meaningful and authentic.

    Student Cell Phone and Mobile Device Usage on Campus 

    As the holidays approach, some of our students may be the lucky recipients of some type of technology tool or mobile device.  As you set up guidelines and parameters for your child regarding screen time and usage, please refer to the Solana Beach District Cell Phone/Mobile Device guidelines from the Parent/Student Handbook at https://www.sbsd.k12.ca.us/domain/361#CellPhones. All mobile devices are turned off and stored in the student backpacks during the school day. 

    Friendly Reminder

    Please be sure to always sign in/sign out at the front office before beginning/ending your volunteer commitments so that we may know who is on campus  at all times.  The time and energy you dedicate to our classrooms is so greatly appreciated.

    SBSD Office Closures

    District and school offices will be closed during the Winter Break (Dec. 23, 2019 – Jan 3, 2020).

    Health Office Wish List   

    We are in need of used clothing items in our Health office.  (Girls and boys pants - sizes S, M, and L).  Donations can be brought to the front office.  Thank you for your consideration.

    Warmly,


    Shawntanet Jara
