As the#REDforED liasons in our districts we are concerned about those of our staff who have
been, or soon will be, hurt by the majority decision of our educators to continue fighting
for a real and sustainable budget plan by walking out FOR our students and fellow employees.
We ask that you help us to help them survive this difficult time. Many of our employees
have been unable to join us in this movement because they did not have any paid time off.
Now, with the walkout extending into, and quite possibly through, next week - the district
will be forced (financially) to close and all employees will be off without pay, regardless
of their choice in the matter. Donations will be allocated to individuals on a need by need
basis. If it turns out we do not need the entire amount received, we will donate the
remainder to the generous Sunnyside Foundation Grant fund which provides emergency relief
for individual students in our district. Thank you for any support you can offer.
