Each year, RABC is proud to award the Stephanie Bogrett-Gould Scholarship (whose focus is volunteerism) to a deserving Silver Creek Senior. Stephanie, who passed away unexpectedly in December 2015 but will never be forgotten, exemplified the spirit of volunteerism that is the focus of RABC. She was a key volunteer for RABC and the Football Program.

Please encourage any Silver Creek senior you know who consistently gives back to his/her school, community and world to apply (Stephanie Bogrett-Gould Scholarship Application).

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.
