Coronavirus Resources

Coronavirus has created anxiety and fear throughout the community. Despite this, it is important to continue to support each other and to make sure we come out from this situation stronger than ever before. Sunrise Middle School is committed to keeping our students as safe as possible while at the same time maintaining our high quality of education.
Here are some resources that may aid you and your family in these tough times:

Free food

During our school closure, we wanted you to know about places where you can get free food while your children are not being served meals at school.
Please note these food pantries:

  • Second Harvest Food Bank, 750 Curtner Ave. 8-5 Monday-Friday, 800-984-3663
  • Ecumenical Hunger Program (EHP), 2411 Pulgas Ave., 650-323-7781

Also, San Jose High School will be passing out packaged breakfasts and lunches to any student under age 18 from 9-11 a.m. This will be a drive-up-and-go station; students may not eat at the school and must return home so that the coronavirus does not spread.

Eviction Moratorium in San Jose

The San José City Council has enacted a temporary eviction moratorium in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The moratorium is in effect through April 17, and the City Council may extend it.

Unemployment Insurance Benefits

Note to parents who cannot work because of their child’s school closures. You may be eligible for Unemployment Insurance Benefits.
Please call the OLSE Advice Line for help in determining eligibility and assistance with applications.

Chromebooks for students who don’t have access to a computer at home will be available for pick up at school.
If you need one leave a message on the school phone, 408-659-4785, and we will tell you the next time we will be at the office to give you one.
A parent must come with their student when picking up the Chromebook, and parents will be asked to fill out a waiver before the Chromebook is given to the student.

Internet Access

Getting access to the internet is more important than ever right now since our education has been moved online.

Coronavirus Prevention

It is important to protect you and your family from this virus. This website directly from the CDC details the most up-to-date information on how to accomplish this and help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Suggested Schedule for Students During School Closure

Sunrise Parents, sometimes one of the hardest things for children is to not have a schedule while school is not in session. We are suggesting the following schedule for Monday through Friday. We think it could make it easier on your children to deal with their school’s closure.
Also, please make sure your children don’t associate with other people during this time of shelter-in-place in order to prevent the spread of the virus. All of us at Sunrise can’t wait to see you again!
Our suggested schedule is:

  • 8 am: Wake up, make your bed, have breakfast, change out of pajamas, and get ready for a good day!
  • 9 am: Do Zoom sessions with your Sunrise teachers
  • 11 am: Walk or run a little outside (Youtube  JustDance /workouts if weather is bad)
  • 11:30 am: Math or Reading time (whichever you didn’t do in Zoom session)
  • 12:30 pm: Lunch, walk outside, and chat with friends
  • 1:30 pm: Finish all math and English work
  • 2:15 pm: Walk/break
