Good Afternoon Pine Hill and South Bay Families,
I want to begin by saying thank you for the support that you have been showing us. Your timely responses to our Parent Check-in Survey were overwhelmingly positive. And I have to agree with you, the staff at both Pine Hill and South Bay are exceptional! Administrators are poised and prepared. Our teachers are trailblazing distance learning efforts in Humboldt County by finding innovative ways to keep students engaged and learning. Food service provided students over 2,600 meals last week. And the Family Resource Center continues to assist our most vulnerable families in securing basic necessities. While our efforts have been outstanding, I know this is a trying time for everyone. On our southbayusd.org website, you will find a new Student & Family Request for Assistance Form. I meet with my Administrative Team every day at 8AM, and with my Cabinet Team every day at 2PM. The Student & Family Request for Assistance forms will be reviewed daily and you can expect to hear from us within 48 hours. We work for you and we are in this for the long-haul. For now, the most important things we can do is to practice social distancing, and to find something to celebrate each day. As Albert Einstein said, “In the midst of every crisis, lies great opportunity.” Next week, I will continue to meet with Humboldt County’s school leaders and representatives from public health. I will continue to keep you informed every step of the way. Until then, stay safe and stay healthy.
My Very Best,
Gary Storts, Superintendent
