IMPORTANT BUS INFORMATION

Attached you will find a MS Word Document that reiterates to parents that student bus passes are required to be stored and kept in a safe place over the summer to avoid their loss, and the subsequent cost of a replacement pass.  In addition, the letter also talks about the implementation of Zpass+, a notification system which sends time and location messages via phone text to parents when their student scans on and off the bus. This is a great program that provides another level of safety and security for the students of SVVSD.  Parents are truly going to love this new functionality. The system is currently active and ready for parents to sign up for an account and begin receiving these valuable text notifications.

Z Pass+ information – In an effort to better serve you, we are implementing a program called Z Pass+ this year.  This free program will allow parents to receive text and/or email notifications via their smartphone whenever their student scans on or off the bus.  This technology is invaluable, and provides an additional layer of safety and security for District students utilizing transportation services. The following link has directions on how to sign up.

Please open the following link for more important bus information.

Now for the details. RABC’s second major fundraiser, the Raptor Run, is fast approaching. This fun family event will take place on April 21, 2018 at 9 am in the neighborhoods around Silver Creek. This year’s race is a Bolder Boulder qualifier, and it is great for kids as the course does not cross a single street! If you can’t run or walk this year’s event, please consider donating (see next section).

RAPTOR RUN—SPRING CLEANING

If you can’t participate in the Raptor Run this year, we get it. But, you can still help raise funds to support teams and kids here at Silver Creek and do some spring cleaning at the same time. If you are anything like me, you have gift cards lying around. Put those unused gift cards to good use! Donate them to RABC for age group prizes for the Raptor Run. Please put them (minimum value $10 to $15, maximum value is up to you) in an envelope, mark “Raptor Run Race Director” on the front, and drop them at the office. Don’t have gift cards lying around, please consider buying a gift card or asking a local business to donate one (again, minimum value $10-$15).

THANK YOU

Thanks to all the folks who donated their time and gift cards to make After-Prom a success and to keep our Silver Creek students safe. And, thank you to everyone who turned out to hear Dr. Stephen Walker’s talk. I think we all agree that we learned a lot!

Congratulations Mathletes

On Saturday, March 3, eight of our students participated in the Mathworks Mathematical Modeling Challenge.  They spent 14 hours working on crafting a viable solution to the problem of re-allocating “lost” food in the food production system to the food-insecure population and discussing/creating other ways to reduce food waste.  In the process, they created a report that could be no longer than 20 pages long. They formed two teams – Paxton Lee, Emma Lilly, Jet Rostykus, Max Ruiz and Madeline Culwell, Ashlyn Kofford, Alakh Patel, Aidan Rooney.

One of the two teams just learned their paper has advanced to the second round of judging  (Jet Rostykus, Emma Lilly, Max Ruiz, and Paxton Lee). They will find out next week if they make “Honorable Mention” or “The Top 6”.  Only 20% of the papers submitted nation-wide earned the distinction of moving on to the second round.

IMPORTANT BUS INFORMATION

Attached you will find a MS Word Document that reiterates to parents that student bus passes are required to be stored and kept in a safe place over the summer to avoid their loss, and the subsequent cost of a replacement pass.  In addition, the letter also talks about the implementation of Zpass+, a notification system which sends time and location messages via phone text to parents when their student scans on and off the bus. This is a great program that provides another level of safety and security for the students of SVVSD.  Parents are truly going to love this new functionality. The system is currently active and ready for parents to sign up for an account and begin receiving these valuable text notifications.

Z Pass+ information – In an effort to better serve you, we are implementing a program called Z Pass+ this year.  This free program will allow parents to receive text and/or email notifications via their smartphone whenever their student scans on or off the bus.  This technology is invaluable, and provides an additional layer of safety and security for District students utilizing transportation services. The following link has directions on how to sign up.

Please open the following link for more important bus information.

It is really easy, just follow a complete list of instructions. You can even watch most of the games/matches/meets/duals while earning $25 for your team or activity. If you can help, please contact

IMPORTANT BUS INFORMATION

Attached you will find a MS Word Document that reiterates to parents that student bus passes are required to be stored and kept in a safe place over the summer to avoid their loss, and the subsequent cost of a replacement pass.  In addition, the letter also talks about the implementation of Zpass+, a notification system which sends time and location messages via phone text to parents when their student scans on and off the bus. This is a great program that provides another level of safety and security for the students of SVVSD.  Parents are truly going to love this new functionality. The system is currently active and ready for parents to sign up for an account and begin receiving these valuable text notifications.

Z Pass+ information – In an effort to better serve you, we are implementing a program called Z Pass+ this year.  This free program will allow parents to receive text and/or email notifications via their smartphone whenever their student scans on or off the bus.  This technology is invaluable, and provides an additional layer of safety and security for District students utilizing transportation services. The following link has directions on how to sign up.

Please open the following link for more important bus information.

Students only receive one free bus pass.  For a replacement pass, please contact the Bus Pass coordinator by sending an email to bus pass@svvsd.org or calling 303-702-7540.  The replacement cost for lost, stolen and/or mutilated bus passes is $5.00 and shows up as fee under your student’s name in Infinite Campus.  New students to the district or new to riding the bus may pick up their bus passes at the Main Office of the school they will be attending.
