SUSD School Closures – Latest Updates

On Friday, March 13th, we announced the temporary suspension of classroom instruction and programs of Sanger Unified from Monday, March 16 – Monday, April 13. This was a difficult decision, and as we move forward we are keeping in mind our critical, core purpose of taking care of our kids and our community.

We know that families have many questions about what the days ahead will hold, and we will provide regular updates throughout this suspension. New information and directives are being sent to us daily from our local health department and the Governor’s office making our plans to provide  educational resources and instruction continually change.

You will receive regular updates on our website, Remind App and through social media.

Our History

Picture of the old Taft building
The earliest evidence of children receiving formal education in what is now Sanger Unified School occurred in 1860. Scottsburg, one of the first school districts organized in Fresno County, served a community on the Kings River. In the following one hundred fifty plus years, many new schools were organized while others were abandoned or consolidated.
