Back to School Resources for SSD families!

Welcome to the new year here in Sunnyvale’s public schools! Whether we are in school virtually or eventually back in-person, we continue to believe in educating the whole child, providing rigorous education standards, and preparing your child to be ready for college and career in today’s fast-paced 21st-century world.

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