1 day before, 2 days before

All Denali Families (both middle and high school, parents and students and siblings) are strongly encouraged to attend the Sunnyvale Planning Commission meeting THIS Monday, December 10th at 7:00pm to express our support for Summit Denali's new high school campus.  Your presence can make a difference! 

  • Please wear some Denali gear if you have it.   We'll have t-shirts to hand out if you don't have one. 
  • Even if you can't stay for the whole meeting, just coming for an hour or a half an hour with your Denali swag will help to show that we have a supportive community.

 

Message from Mr. Bock about the Denali Facilities...

 

Dear Summit Denali Families,

As you may know, our leadership team has been working closely with local officials and the Sunnyvale Planning Commission to gain the necessary permit approval to move forward with the renovation of our future permanent high school campus on San Aleso Ave. As I have said before, transparency and community engagement are critical parts of our school community. We want to keep you informed about progress as well as ways you – as founding members of our school community – can support this effort.

Unfortunately, earlier today, we learned that the city’s planning staff will not be recommending approval of Summit’s use permit. City staff has expressed concerns over the number of parking spots our plan includes, leading to this disappointing recommendation. However, the Planning Commission is not bound by this staff recommendation.

Together, we can advocate for our Summit Denali community!

How can you help? Attend Monday’s commission meeting! We encourage all Denali community members – teachers, students, and families like yours – to attend the commission public meeting. Please come to show your support, talk about the impact Summit has had on your child’s academic journey and discuss our campus community’s commitment to ridesharing and alternative transportation options!

This could be one step in a larger process. If the commission denies our use permit, Summit will appeal the commission’s decision with the Sunnyvale City Council in early 2019. Your attendance at Monday’s meeting is a critical step in securing Denali’s permanent home.

Though this recommendation is a small setback, I am confident it is one we can work through as one Summit Denali community. Join me on Monday and let your voice be heard in favor of a permanent home for Summit Denali!

In partnership,
Kevin Bock
