Staying Connected – SMJUHSD’s Weekly Message March 27, 2020

Dear SMJUHSD Parents and Students, As we move into another week of the challenging and changing COVID-19 crisis together, here is some information I hope you and your family find useful, while our schools continue to be closed until further notice.

Teachers are working remotely to provide instructional lessons and assignments for students through Canvas, Aeries, email, or preferred app. Students should be checking their email and accounts on a daily basis, responding to their Teachers, and submitting completed assignments. We are working on a revised plan for repair services of school-issued tablets/devices now that school offices are closed. More information will be coming very soon. Low-income families without internet, can contact Xfinity/Comcast for 60 days of free internet service. Call 1-855-846-8376 for English and 1-855-765-6995 for Spanish.

We continue to provide walk-up and drive-thru pick-up lunch and breakfast meal service to all students from pre-Kinder to 12th grade, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at all three comprehensive high schools – Santa Maria, Pioneer Valley, and Ernest Righetti – as long as they remain closed. Students can also receive food at different schools in Santa Maria-Bonita School District, Orcutt, and Guadalupe. While our district and school offices are closed to the public until further notice, you may still contact us by phone (or email), leave a message, and someone will return your phone call in a timely manner. The District will soon launch a Facebook page entitled SMJUHSD Staying Connected. The purpose is to provide you with regular communication, but without the ability to comment. Stay tuned!

As this outbreak continues to unfold, decisions to reopen schools will come from County and State governmental authorities. This is an unprecedented time and the SMJUHSD trustees, administrators, teachers and staff remain hopeful that things return to normal soon.
