Good afternoon, Sutter families, The excitement is growing as we are entering into the final countdown to the start of school.  

Orientation Slides: For those of you that were unable to make it to 7th grade orientation, here is a link to new student orientation slides .

Student Handbook: Here is a link to our student handbook including school rules and dress code (also located in the front pages of the student planners that all Sutter students will receive at the start of school).

Return to Health Guidance: As we get ready for the start of school, here is a link to the updated SCUSD Return to Health Plan . 

Pick up/Drop off/Bell Schedule: Please be on time to school! First period starts at 8:18 am. The first day of school, Thursday, September 2nd students will be dismissed at 1:32 pm. Remember, M/T/W/F students are dismissed at 2:32 pm, Thursdays students are dismissed at 1:32 pm. .

Please be patient at pick up/drop off. Have your child ready to get out of the car when you pull up to the school (please pull up AS FAR AS YOU CAN TOWARD THE END OF THE DRIVEWAY), as we need to keep traffic moving. We will have staff out in the front of the school helping to direct traffic, please do not block the driveway. Click on this link for the school map .

Important Forms to fill out:

Lockers:  7th grade locker “move in” day will be on Tuesday, August 30th from 9:30-11:30 by our rear stairwell.   You should have received an email stating whether you have been assigned a locker or are on our waitlist. Please remind your child to bring ONE COMBINATION lock with them on locker move-in day, including any locker shelves, etc. that they may want to put in there.   Before locker day, have your child practice opening their lock and memorizing their combination (we recommend you purchase combination locks that come in a 2 pack so they can have the same combination for their hall and PE locker). Parking will be available through our back gate on J street. 

ALL students will receive a PE locker. These will be assigned by your PE teacher after the start of school.  

For 8th graders that were not able to make it on locker move in day, they can stop by room 102 at Sutter on the following dates/times: August 26th, 29th, or 31st from 11a-2p, or August 30th between 12-2. 

After school starts, students can go to room 102 before school, during lunch, or after school to claim their locker through September 9th.  After September 9th, any unclaimed lockers will be distributed to those on our waitlist. If you have any questions, please email 

PE Clothes: 

Students do not need to have clothes by the first day of school, PE teachers will notify students of when to start bringing their PE clothes and their PE combination lock. 

You can expect an additional message from me at the beginning of next week to go over more information.  Thank you and have a great weekend!
