ATTENDANCE INFORMATION

TO EXCUSE AN ABSENCE – please contact Lois Davis at 720-494-3721 or her direct line: 720-494-3738,  or via 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 reported by email within 48 hours of the absence in order to be excused.  After 48 hours, absences can only be excused by the student’s assistant principal.  Students may not be excused from a class and remain on campus.  While on campus, students must attend their regularly scheduled classes or be counted “unexcused”.

TAKING YOUR STUDENT OUT OF SCHOOL DURING THE SCHOOL DAY–  Any student who needs to leave during the school day should bring a signed note to the attendance window before school (or you can email a request to davis_lois@svvsd.org) indicating the time you would like him/her to be excused. The student will receive a pink pass to give to the teacher for the class from which the student will be leaving early.  Students should always sign out at the attendance window before they leave.  You can meet your child at the attendance window or 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 want to make the pick-up as easy as possible.  Planning ahead limits classroom disruption.

ATTENDANCE POLICY UPDATE

Students should not be excused from one class in order to go somewhere else in the school building or otherwise remain on school grounds.  Parents, please do not excuse your child from a class in order for him/her to avoid a test for which he/she isn’t prepared, or to avoid a particular class he/she doesn’t feel like attending that day.  Students who are excused from school by a parent should not be on campus and may lose up to 50% credit on any assessment they miss while avoiding a class to “work in the library” or to try to catch up in another class.  Please feel free to call the administration for any clarification of this policy.

Extended absences (vacation) – There is an “Extended Leave of Absence” form students should submit prior to leaving for an extended time.  Forms are only needed if a student will be absent for more than 3 consecutive 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.  Parents/Guardians have 48 hours to excuse absences.  We strongly encourage students to contact their parents from the health office and not from the classroom.

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 smart phone 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.

Spring 2017 Concurrent Enrollment is now open!

In the St. Vrain Valley School District (SVVSD), students who are enrolled in 11th or 12th grade, who demonstrate academic preparedness, are eligible for the Concurrent Enrollment Program (CE). Concurrent Enrollment is a tremendous opportunity for our students to experience college while still in high school and provides access to academic courses that are not available at Silver Creek. Students are eligible to enroll in up to two classes per semester at either Front Range Community College or CU-Boulder.

Students interested in participating in the Concurrent Enrollment program should meet with their respective counselor during the semester prior to the one in which they’d like to take college courses. Information about the program, deadlines and a checklist can be found at this link: Concurrent Enrollment checklist

The SVVSD Concurrent Enrollment online application for the spring semester, which begins in January of 2017, is due November 11th. This is a very firm deadline and students must meet this in order to participate in CE beginning in January. The application can be accessed here: Concurrent Enrollment Application

Students will receive approval/denial decisions by December 2nd, 2016. It’s imperative that prospective CE students and their families review all guidelines and should refer to the checklist to ensure that they are aware of the financial commitment if the student doesn’t earn at least a C in the class. Also be aware that SVVSD will only pay the Front Range tuition rate for classes taken at CU and the family is responsible for the difference in those two costs.

 

SENIOR PICTURES

Senior Pictures are due by November 18th.  Please download your student’s senior picture to the link found on the Silver Creek home page, or send your student’s picture to Joylynn Bockelmann at bockelmann_joylynn@svvsd.org

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 smart phone 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.

Open Enrollment FAQ

Spring 2017 Concurrent Enrollment is now open!

In the St. Vrain Valley School District (SVVSD), students who are enrolled in 11th or 12th grade, who demonstrate academic preparedness, are eligible for the Concurrent Enrollment Program (CE). Concurrent Enrollment is a tremendous opportunity for our students to experience college while still in high school and provides access to academic courses that are not available at Silver Creek. Students are eligible to enroll in up to two classes per semester at either Front Range Community College or CU-Boulder.

Students interested in participating in the Concurrent Enrollment program should meet with their respective counselor during the semester prior to the one in which they’d like to take college courses. Information about the program, deadlines and a checklist can be found at this link: Concurrent Enrollment checklist

The SVVSD Concurrent Enrollment online application for the spring semester, which begins in January of 2017, is due November 11th. This is a very firm deadline and students must meet this in order to participate in CE beginning in January. The application can be accessed here: Concurrent Enrollment Application

Students will receive approval/denial decisions by December 2nd, 2016. It’s imperative that prospective CE students and their families review all guidelines and should refer to the checklist to ensure that they are aware of the financial commitment if the student doesn’t earn at least a C in the class. Also be aware that SVVSD will only pay the Front Range tuition rate for classes taken at CU and the family is responsible for the difference in those two costs.

Image result for The Twelfth Night

 

Please support the Silver Creek Theater Company on November 10-12 at 7:00pm – Adults $10 and Students $8

A hilarious story of love at first sight and mistaken identities, William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” will be sure to entertain. When a shipwrecked Viola dresses in a man’s clothes to find work in the kingdom of Illyria, she turns the kingdom upside down. Full of misunderstanding and farce, it is the original romantic comedy.

ATTENDANCE INFORMATION

TO EXCUSE AN ABSENCE – please contact Lois Davis at 720-494-3721 or her direct line: 720-494-3738,  or via 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 reported by email within 48 hours of the absence in order to be excused.  After 48 hours, absences can only be excused by the student’s assistant principal.  Students may not be excused from a class and remain on campus.  While on campus, students must attend their regularly scheduled classes or be counted “unexcused”.

TAKING YOUR STUDENT OUT OF SCHOOL DURING THE SCHOOL DAY–  Any student who needs to leave during the school day should bring a signed note to the attendance window before school (or you can email a request to davis_lois@svvsd.org) indicating the time you would like him/her to be excused. The student will receive a pink pass to give to the teacher for the class from which the student will be leaving early.  Students should always sign out at the attendance window before they leave.  You can meet your child at the attendance window or 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 want to make the pick-up as easy as possible.  Planning ahead limits classroom disruption.

ATTENDANCE POLICY UPDATE

Students should not be excused from one class in order to go somewhere else in the school building or otherwise remain on school grounds.  Parents, please do not excuse your child from a class in order for him/her to avoid a test for which he/she isn’t prepared, or to avoid a particular class he/she doesn’t feel like attending that day.  Students who are excused from school by a parent should not be on campus and may lose up to 50% credit on any assessment they miss while avoiding a class to “work in the library” or to try to catch up in another class.  Please feel free to call the administration for any clarification of this policy.

Extended absences (vacation) – There is an “Extended Leave of Absence” form students should submit prior to leaving for an extended time.  Forms are only needed if a student will be absent for more than 3 consecutive 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.  Parents/Guardians have 48 hours to excuse absences.  We strongly encourage students to contact their parents from the health office and not from the classroom.
