Day of Action: Supporting greater funding for public education in Sacramento

Click through for more information from Ms. Hodge.
At Emerson, we are expecting to have the vast majority of our teaching staff and aides absent on this day because they are planning to attend the full day of the rally in Sacramento. Emerson will have a few teachers, substitutes, & staff on site to supervise all the students.

We have cancelled testing for that day and we will not be able to provide instruction. We anticipate that many students will stay home or will join their families in the call to action in Sacramento. Students who do attend school will be supervised in large groups in common areas, such as the cafeteria, the yard, and the library. If possible, we plan to keep K students in their classrooms.

If you can, please let us know if you plan to send your child to school on 5/22:  Day of Action Google Form
