Update March 21: Savanna School District

Dear Savanna Families,

Thank you for your ongoing patience and support as we work to effectively address health and safety concerns associated with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

On Thursday night, the Governor issued Executive Order N-33-20 directing Californians to stay at home until further notice. Therefore, in the interest of public safety, student dismissal in the Savanna School District will continue until such time that it is deemed safe for our students to return to school. We believe it’s probably safe to say that we will not be returning to school sites before the end of April.  The district is working closely with state and local authorities, as well as our county partners, throughout this emergency. We will continue to monitor conditions associated with COVID-19 and update our families regarding any changes to the student dismissal period in the Savanna School Distri

I must say that I’m incredibly impressed and very proud of our teachers who have provided a wide variety of online learning experiences for students the past week.  From teaching lessons and posting them to YouTube to assigning work through DoJo, from sharing great resources online to reading books to students, from having parents share photos of student work to posting writing assignments with a link for a read aloud, from reading books to their students to taking students on virtual field trips, Savanna teachers have truly embraced the Governor’s Emergency Declaration that we must continue delivering high-quality educational opportunities through other options, distance learning and independent study.  I’m also very proud of our students and the resiliency they have shown in working independently, demonstrating their learning to teachers.  I can’t thank parents enough for their help in assisting their young learners as we’ve navigated this distance learning together!

The week of March 23 – 27 was already part of our regularly scheduled spring break, with all schools closed during this week.  Student meal service will continue after spring break; a schedule with the location and times will be provided by March 29.

As always, we will continue to provide our school community with timely district updates as new information becomes available. In the meantime, we urge families to abide by the Governor’s Executive Order and to do their part in observing social distancing and following other important guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Orange County Health Care Agency.

Thank you for your continued cooperation as we work together to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and support the health and safety of everyone in our local community.

Food Services During School Closures

Savanna School District Food Services Department will resume providing opportunities for families to pick up school meals beginning March 30, at which time we will be moving to a one day per week distribution for each child age 18 and under.  In order to provide prompt service, we are asking families that live in the Cerritos and Hansen attendance areas to arrive at Hansen School, 1300 S. Knott Ave., Anaheim between 11:30 am and noon and that families that live in the Holder and Reid attendance areas arrive at Hansen School between noon and 12:30 pm. Children must be present in the car to receive the meals for the week.  Please do not exit your vehicle; meals will be placed into the trunk of your car to minimize person to person exposure.

A lunch meal, will be available at no cost to all persons in the community who are 18 years of age and under.

  • No paperwork or sign-ups are necessary.
  • Children must be present in order to receive a meal (1 meal will be provided per child that is present).
  • A responsible adult must accompany children.
  • Meals will be offered for pick up only. No meals will be consumed on-site
