Back to School Resources

Welcome to the new year here in Sunnyvale’s public schools! We are thrilled to be back in person this school year.

Our mission is to provide every student with a strong foundation of academic, behavioral, and social-emotional skills to prepare them for success in a diverse, challenging, and changing world. We look forward to doing this work in partnership with you.

Here are a few things you can do right now to help you and your child settle in:

  1. Get in touch with your school and see if they’re holding any virtual events for new and returning families
  2. Download the 2021-2022 Parent-Student Handbook and turn in the required forms
  3. Text “YES” to the number 67587 from your mobile phone to sign up for text messages. Please note, if you text this number and your mobile phone is not entered in the student information system, messages will not be sent to it. You can check to see if your information is in the student information system by asking your school front office staff
