The Sunnyvale City Council will hear our formal appeal of the Planning Commission’s rejection of Summit Denali’s use permit for our new permanent high school campus facility on San Aleso on Tuesday, January 29 at 7 p.m. Please plan on attending. We NEED lots of Summit Denali supporters in the crowd. The meeting will be held at the Sunnyvale City Hall @ 456 W Olive Ave, Sunnyvale, CA.
In the meantime, if you have not yet done so, we urge you to write a letter of support for Summit Denali’s permanent high school. Topics to highlight include the following:
Mentioning that you’re a Sunnyvale resident (and if you’ve been one for a period of years or decades, include that as well!).
Underscoring the fact that families like yours deserve access to a high-quality public school option in north Sunnyvale and that you want Summit.
Detailing alternate transportation methods your family uses (if applicable). We know that many of you carpool to school every day or have children who use alternate forms of transportation (e.g. biking, walking, etc.) – feel free to mention that as well. One of the city’s biggest concerns about the future Summit Denali campus is lack of parking at the school site; mentioning our campus’ commitment to shared rides and alternate forms of transportation is helpful!
We ask that you please draft a one-page letter no later than January 25 and drop it off at either Denali campus front desk OR email a final version to Kate Gottfredson, Summit’s Director of Government Affairs, via firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your first/last name and your child(ren)’s first name(s) and current Summit Denali grade(s). In addition, if helpful, click here to view a letter template that you can personalize in the first and second paragraphs. (Note: If you already submitted a letter to the Planning Commission in 2018 (thank you!) there is no need to draft another one at this time.)
Finally, if you’re a Sunnyvale resident with ties to community members who support us, we ask that you invite your neighbors to also write a letter of support.
Together, we can advocate for our Summit Denali community!
