Sunshine students to start 2020-2021 school year in former Portland facility

Although construction has been ongoing at Sunshine Elementary for the past year, the work scheduled for completion in time for the 2020-2021 school year to begin,  has not yet been finished. To provide the best possible learning environment for Sunshine students while construction continues, school will begin on August 24 at the former Portland Elementary building, 906 W. Portland St.
Temporary use of the Portland campus will ensure  students and staff have access to a fully-operational school facility while providing an opportunity for the contractor to complete the Sunshine project. In support of this contingency plan, construction of the new Jarrett Middle School on the current Portland campus has been temporarily delayed.
Bus transportation will be provided to all those students who are newly eligible. Detailed information will be provided to each family soon. In the meantime, please contact the SPS transportation office at 523-0500 with specific questions.
