Important Bus Pass Information for Parents of Students Riding the Bus

As we near the end of the 2013-14 school year, I would like to thank you for encouraging your student/s to show up with their bus pass each and every day this past school year.  Doing so has provided our students with a greater level of safety and security.   As explained during initial roll out and distribution, students only receive one free bus pass.  Therefore, your student’s’ bus passes must be safely stored over the summer months until the start of the new school year to avoid the cost of a replacement.

Should your student require a replacement pass, please contact the Bus Pass coordinator by sending an email to buspass@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.

Sincerely,

Randy McKie

Director of Transportation

Hosting an Exchange Student

Host families are needed to open their heart and home to some great teens from around the world for the 2014-2015 school year. Hosting enriches the lives of families, students and entire communities. The teens are between the ages of 15 and 18, speak English, have their own medical insurance, and bring their own spending money for school lunches, everyday expenses, entertainment etc. Mostly, they have a lot of love to give their American family! A volunteer host family provides a room (which may be shared), meals in the home and a caring environment for their student. Students attend your local public high school while on program. There is no such thing as a typical host family! Single-parent families, retired couples, families with young children, no children, as well as those with teenagers or empty-nesters have all had successful hosting experiences and embrace the opportunity to share their lives.

If you are interested in learning more about student exchange, please visit our websitehttp://www.iseusa.com/ or contact Debbie Stewart at (720) 318-9711 or email debbie@terastorm.com.

Prom will be held this Saturday, April 19th at the Chateaux at Fox Meadows, 13600 Xavier Lane, Broomfield.  Students can purchase tickets during lunch or from Ms. Lindsey.  The price is $75 per couple or $40 per person.  Students can pay with cash or check made payable to SCHS.  Tickets will be available for purchase until Friday at 2:15.  Tickets will not be sold at the door.

Don’t forget that every student will need a completed contract and an ID in order to get into prom.  If you are bringing a guest from another school they will need to have their guardian and school sign the prom contact.  Do not put this off until the last minute!   Contracts will be available during ticket sales.

Important Bus Pass Information for Parents of Students Riding the Bus

As we near the end of the 2013-14 school year, I would like to thank you for encouraging your student/s to show up with their bus pass each and every day this past school year.  Doing so has provided our students with a greater level of safety and security.   As explained during initial roll out and distribution, students only receive one free bus pass.  Therefore, your student’s’ bus passes must be safely stored over the summer months until the start of the new school year to avoid the cost of a replacement.

Should your student require a replacement pass, please contact the Bus Pass coordinator by sending an email to buspass@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.

Sincerely,

Randy McKie

Director of Transportation

Hosting an Exchange Student

Host families are needed to open their heart and home to some great teens from around the world for the 2014-2015 school year. Hosting enriches the lives of families, students and entire communities. The teens are between the ages of 15 and 18, speak English, have their own medical insurance, and bring their own spending money for school lunches, everyday expenses, entertainment etc. Mostly, they have a lot of love to give their American family! A volunteer host family provides a room (which may be shared), meals in the home and a caring environment for their student. Students attend your local public high school while on program. There is no such thing as a typical host family! Single-parent families, retired couples, families with young children, no children, as well as those with teenagers or empty-nesters have all had successful hosting experiences and embrace the opportunity to share their lives.

If you are interested in learning more about student exchange, please visit our website http://www.iseusa.com/ or contact Debbie Stewart at (720) 318-9711 or email debbie@terastorm.com.

Counseling Corner

Tutoring Club of Longmont offers free ACT/SAT tests once a month to benefit high schools in the Saint Vrain Valley School District.  These tests are an excellent opportunity for students to experience a full-length ACT or SAT test in a relaxed environment without the fear of this score going on a college transcript.   Each student’s score and full analysis of the strengths and weaknesses indicated by the test will be available 3 days following the practice test.  There is no pressure to sign up for our program, and students are only presented with how the program could help them.

Tutoring Club of Longmont is conveniently located on the diagonal of Ken Pratt and Nelson.   All tests are scheduled on Saturdays and start promptly at 9:00 a.m.  If a student would like to take one of these tests, he/she can email Longmontco@tutoringclub.com.
