All Schools Back in Session November 4, 2019

Dear Sulphur Springs Union School District Families,

The safety and wellbeing of our students and staff are the highest priority for the Sulphur Springs Union School District. Due to the Tick Canyon fire in our area, all Schools, including Sunshine/YMCA Daycare Programs, State Preschool Programs will be closed from Tuesday, October 29th to Friday, November 1st for all staff and students. The fires and resulting smoke caused unsafe conditions inside the classrooms and facilities.

The District is working closely with property remediation specialists to test the air quality to determine the appropriate date for students and staff to return. All schools will be closed until experts can confirm the safety of students and staff.

Please know that the school days missed due to the closure will not be made up. We will follow the rest of the school calendar as planned.

When all schools reopen, we are making plans to have our psychologists and school counselors available to any students who may need support.

All updates will be communicated with our community as soon as we receive them. For any questions or concerns, please reach district staff at 661-252-5131.Thank you for your patience during these times.

Dr. Catherine Kawaguchi, Superintendent.
