Health Updates

Good Afternoon Summerville Union High School Community,

This is Michael Merrill, Superintendent, with an  April 3rd school closure update due to the COVID 19 virus.

Based on our zoom conference this morning with all superintendents and public health guidance, the  closure period for all Tuolumne County schools will be extended through the end of the 2019-2020 school year To be clear, the school year is not over, it has just transitioned from classroom based instruction to distance learning.  All events and activities scheduled during this period have been postponed.  We will be working as a school to provide for opportunities to re-schedule Prom and Graduation at a time in the future when it is safe to once again assemble people in large groupings.

Your students will continue to receive information from their teachers so that we can maintain the learning process that our students so deserve.  As we transition to required online learning, we ask all parents to assist their student with checking his/her email account, google classroom accounts, or email the teacher(s) directly.  Meeting graduation requirements and making sure that we are not creating gaps in the educational learning process is essential to our students’ achievement and we all have to work together on this.  Completing assignments to submit is important and grades do count. The learning process must go on.  Senior Projects you will hear about expectations and process in the next week.

The school campus (including all fields and gyms) is closed to the public.  We are working on campus-wide projects, complete cleaning and sanitizing of all facilities and want to be ready for the eventual return of our students when it is deemed safe.

Office hours are scaled back as the majority of our personnel are working from home and can best be contacted via email during this time.

The District and School Offices will be open for business on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.  This is the time for people to pick up meals if they do not get them at one of the bus routes or pick up assignments left by teachers if they are not able to get online.  Campus gates are locked so anyone needing to pick up assignments or official paperwork will need to call ahead and someone will deliver the item to them when they walk to the office door.

Please follow the executive orders to stay at home so that we can slow the spread of this virus.  The more we can slow this virus he better off we will all be.  Please do your part.

This is not the message I want to be sending out, as I thoroughly miss all of our students and staff being together.  Remain strong, remain positive and most of all let’s all be resilient.  We will make it through this together.

Please remember to complete your 2020 census.

All my best to you all, and Go Bears!  mm
