New - SLVUSD Emergency Information Web Page

There is a new webpage from the SLV District Office for parents and students to go to for information during an emergency situation at school or in our valley.


The page is filled with information and instructions in case of emergency. In the event of an actual emergency, this page is where the district office will post updates on what is happening.  In an emergency, this is the place to go online for facts and updates.  Hopefully, this will allow parents and students to be informed and to remain as calm as possible.

As we gear up this week, the sniffles and sneezes are guaranteed to start. How can you help? Teachers could use some supplies in their rooms to fight the good fight.  If you can donate Kleenex, Wipes, or Hand Sanitizer, we would greatly appreciate it.  Anything you can bring may be dropped off in your child's classroom. Thank you!





WATER IS GOOD FOR YOU!

We encourage students to drink lots of water while at school. The teachers have water coolers in their classroom available for students to get the occasional cup of water and our teachers would appreciate donations of gallon containers of water filled at a water station or at the Scotts Valley Water Store. Small size works well.



We also strongly encourage our students to bring their own water bottle container, but please put a name or initials on the water bottle. We end up throwing away many containers each semester!

Important College Deadline

November 30 at Midnight: Deadline for all CSU's and UC Applications.




NEW COLLEGE UPDATES

Earlier submission of FAFSA!

Students attending college after July 1, 2017 will be able to file a FAFSA as early as October 1, 2016 rather than on January 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 every year.

Students will also report income information from an earlier tax year.

For example, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2015 income information, rather than their 2016 income information if they are attending college from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018
