Dear Sunrise Parents and Guardians:
Today your child will be bringing home a Year Round Track Request Form with accompanying letter of explanation. The form is printed on pink paper so that it may be more easily recognized. Completion and return of this form by Friday, November 22nd is extremely important. The link below will take you to a copy of the request form. The text of the letter of explanation is noted below.
Since the date of the parent information meetings held in September, several additional initiatives have been added into our work at Sunrise. For this reason, I have moved forward the timeline for the collection of track request information forward in order to better manage the change process (original date was mid-January).
When making your track request, carefully analyze the off-track of vacation months to determine which track will best meet the needs of your family. Track assignment will be made by date and time of registration for the oldest child currently enrolled in Sunrise K-5. Our target date for notification of track assignment is late February.

Dear Sunrise Parents:
On the reverse side of this letter is the Year Round Track Request Form for our move to a year-round calendar for the 14-15 school year. In order to more effectively manage the transition, I have moved forward the track selection process from February to November. Completed forms are due no later than 4:00PM on Friday, November 22, 2013. A form is required for each child enrolled at Sunrise K-5.
Please review carefully the vacation, or off-track months, for each of the four tracks when making your selection. The calendar for the 14-15 school year will not be available until spring of next year. The off-track dates on the form are for the current school year, but should vary by only a few days for 14-15. When reviewing track options you may wish to log onto the EGUSD website at www.egusd.net and click on the calendar tab.
Track placements will be made based on date and time of registration of the oldest child currently enrolled in Sunrise K-5. By moving the track request process forward, our targeted date for notification of assigned track is the end of February. This earlier timeline will inform parents sooner and help us manage the field testing for California’s new assessment system scheduled to begin in March.
Your assistance in returning Track Selection forms by the stated deadline of November 22nd, will be a great help in this process. Failure to return a Track Selection form by the deadline, could result in loss of placement priority by registration date.
