    Schoology Log-In - click here: SCHOOLOGY
    click on PARENT
    enter code *you have been sent this code in an email last week. Ask your teacher!

    Parents must finish their online registration piece in order to access Power School. Please finish if you haven't already.

    Please - Let’s get this done!  It doesn’t take very long.  Instructions are below. 

    If it doesn’t work for you, there is also information below on how to contact someone who can walk you through it.

    Log into PowerSchool and click on the link for PowerSchool Registration.  If you do not see any forms available to you, then you have done an update. If, however, there are links to your child’s online form, then your registration has not been updated.  

    If you need assistance setting up or accessing your parent PowerSchool account, you can come into your school office and the Registrar can assist you in creating your account. Or, you can email Gail Heagerty at gheagerty@slvusd.org for assistance.

    Grad Night Meeting Information for Senior Parents

    Attention Senior Parents:

    Please come to a Grad Night meeting to help plan an awesome night for your Senior to remember. We are meeting on the first and third Wednesday of each month in room D6 at 6:30 pm. It takes many hands to put on this event and we could really use some extra help. Bring a friend.

    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!


    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!


    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

    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.

    In response to students and members of our community who are highly allergic to fragrances and scents, the

    SLVUSD Board of Trustees adopted a California School Board Association policy to make all district

    classrooms and offices fragrant neutral. CRHS has parents and/or students with

    respiratory issues who can have negative reactions to fragrances.
