Information About School Lunch

St. Vrain Valley School’s Nutrition Service staff believes that nutritious school meals are a main ingredient in students’ ability to learn in the classroom. It’s hard for students to focus when they are hungry. Our staff takes pride in providing meals that meet the USDA nutrition requirements, include as many local ingredients as possible, but taste great too! These employees support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices. Approximately 18,000 student meals are produced in our kitchens each day. In the 2013-14 school year this team produced over 3.25 million meals and snacks for students using over 850,000 pounds of local fresh produce.

Members of our management team are certified in Food Safety and all department team members receive certified food safety training year-round to ensure safe food is served to our students. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to contact us at 303-682-725!

ATTENDANCE INFORMATION

TO EXCUSE AN ABSENCE – please contact Lois Davis at 720-494-3721 or direct to 720-494-3738  or email  davis_lois@svvsd.org.  Be sure to include the student’s first and last name as well as the date and reason for the absence. The absence must be called in or emailed within  48 hours of the absence in order to be excused.  Absences called in after 48 hours cannot be excused unless approved by the student’s assistant principal.

TAKING YOUR STUDENT OUT OF SCHOOL DURING THE SCHOOL DAY–  If you would like to pull your student out of school during the school day, please send him/her to school with a signed note (or email)  indicating the time you would like him/her to be excused. The student should bring the note to the attendance window before school starts.  The student will receive a pink pass to give to the teacher for the class he/she will be leaving early from.  Students leaving early should always sign out at the attendance window.  You can meet your child at the attendance window or you can tell him/her to sign out and meet you outside.  The attendance clerk will use the note to excuse the student in Infinite Campus.  If the absence is a last-minute appointment, call the office as soon as possible so your student can pick up a pass during passing period.  We know that emergencies arise and we would like to make the pickup as easy as possible.  Planning ahead limits classroom disruption.

Extended absences (vacation) – There is an “Extended Leave of Absence” form students can pick up prior to leaving for an extended time.  Forms are only needed if a student will be missing for more than 3 days.  This form allows teachers to document any assignments a student will be missing and their current grade in class.  Parents and students are required to sign the form, and after teachers have added grades/homework, students must get signatures from administration and return the form to the attendance clerk.

Health office visits- Students who are not feeling well need to let their teacher know so the students can be excused to visit the health office.  Students leaving school from the health office can sign themselves out and meet parents outside.  Parent/Guardians have 48 hours to excuse absences.  We strongly encourage students to contact their parents from the health office and not the teacher’s classroom.

 

Infinite Campus Tutorial

Infinite Campus is a great resource for parents to check grades, homework assignments, attendance and much more.  Click here for more information.  If you are having trouble logging in to Infinite Campus or RevTrak, our Help Desk can help.  Contact them at 303-702-7730.    

                                                    

Important Bus Pass Information for Parents of Students Riding the Bus

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.

 

Low Cost Health Insurance

Students who are 18 and graduating may be eligible for FREE and LOW-COST HEALTH INSURANCE through their 19th birthdays! This health insurance is available through Medicaid and CHP+ and enrollment occurs right here through St Vrain Valley School District.  Once children turn 18 and are no longer in school, Medicaid no longer counts parent income towards the child’s eligibility!  Please call The Healthy Kids Initiative at 720-722-1454 to see if your kids qualify today!

Los estudiantes que tienen 18 años y están por graduar de preparatoria podrían ser elegibles para obtener SEGURO MÉDICO GRATUITO O A BAJO PRECIO hasta que cumplan 19 años!  Este seguro médico es proporcionado por parte de los programas del gobierno Medicaid y CHP+.  Cuando un joven cumple 18 años y no está asistiendo a la escuela, Medicaid no toma en cuenta el ingreso de los padres!

ATTENDANCE INFORMATION

TO EXCUSE AN ABSENCE – please contact Lois Davis at 720-494-3721 or direct to 720-494-3738  or email  davis_lois@svvsd.org.  Be sure to include the student’s first and last name as well as the date and reason for the absence. The absence must be called in or emailed within  48 hours of the absence in order to be excused.  Absences called in after 48 hours cannot be excused unless approved by the student’s assistant principal.

TAKING YOUR STUDENT OUT OF SCHOOL DURING THE SCHOOL DAY–  If you would like to pull your student out of school during the school day, please send him/her to school with a signed note (or email)  indicating the time you would like him/her to be excused. The student should bring the note to the attendance window before school starts.  The student will receive a pink pass to give to the teacher for the class he/she will be leaving early from.  Students leaving early should always sign out at the attendance window.  You can meet your child at the attendance window or you can tell him/her to sign out and meet you outside.  The attendance clerk will use the note to excuse the student in Infinite Campus.  If the absence is a last-minute appointment, call the office as soon as possible so your student can pick up a pass during passing period.  We know that emergencies arise and we would like to make the pickup as easy as possible.  Planning ahead limits classroom disruption.

Extended absences (vacation) – There is an “Extended Leave of Absence” form students can pick up prior to leaving for an extended time.  Forms are only needed if a student will be missing for more than 3 days.  This form allows teachers to document any assignments a student will be missing and their current grade in class.  Parents and students are required to sign the form, and after teachers have added grades/homework, students must get signatures from administration and return the form to the attendance clerk.

Health office visits- Students who are not feeling well need to let their teacher know so the students can be excused to visit the health office.  Students leaving school from the health office can sign themselves out and meet parents outside.  Parent/Guardians have 48 hours to excuse absences.  We strongly encourage students to contact their parents from the health office and not the teacher’s classroom.
