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.

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.

Dear Parents,

The district is requiring all students to change their passwords once a year. If your child has not done so at this time we are asking you to assist your child to do so by following the guidelines in the “Student Password Reset FAQ for Students” (LINK).  Students who do not change their passwords by November 1st will have disruptions in instruction by not being able to connect to our wireless, district email, etc.  For more information, please contact Phil Goerner (goerner_philip@svvsd.org), Rod Anadon (anadon_rodrigo@svvsd.org) or Teresa Gunther (gunther_teresa@svvsd.org).

Your support in this matter is greatly appreciated.

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 – 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.  Absences may go unexcused if a student does not 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.  Parents, please contact the school as soon as possible if you are planning on picking up your student so we have time to retrieve them.

Attention Juniors & Sophomores – PSAT INFORMATION

The PSAT/NMSQT exam (Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) will be offered here at Silver Creek on Wednesday, October 11th at 7:30 am.  A precursor to the SAT, the PSAT/NMSQT is a great practice tool that provides excellent preparation for the important SAT college admission exam.  The PSAT/NMSQT is also the sole measure used to determine National Merit Scholarship eligibility.  All are welcome to take the exam, but only Juniors are eligible for National Merit Scholarship eligibility.  The PSAT/NMSQT should not be confused with the PSAT-10 that juniors took last April and that sophomores will take next April.  The PSAT/NMSQT test is voluntary and not mandatory for all students.

There are a limited number of tests available and they will be sold on a first come first served basis.  To register you must bring $20 (cash or check payable to Silver Creek High School) to Andy Yeomans in the Counseling Office.  Registration for the PSAT/NMSQT will close on September 15th, so don’t delay.

Attention Juniors & Sophomores – PSAT INFORMATION

The PSAT/NMSQT exam (Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) will be offered here at Silver Creek on Wednesday, October 11th at 7:30 am.  A precursor to the SAT, the PSAT/NMSQT is a great practice tool that provides excellent preparation for the important SAT college admission exam.  The PSAT/NMSQT is also the sole measure used to determine National Merit Scholarship eligibility.  All are welcome to take the exam, but only Juniors are eligible for National Merit Scholarship eligibility.  The PSAT/NMSQT should not be confused with the PSAT-10 that juniors took last April and that sophomores will take next April.  The PSAT/NMSQT test is voluntary and not mandatory for all students.

There are a limited number of tests available and they will be sold on a first come first served basis.  To register you must bring $20 (cash or check payable to Silver Creek High School) to Andy Yeomans in the Counseling Office.  Registration for the PSAT/NMSQT will close on September 15th, so don’t delay.

 

 

 

 

 

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 – 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.  Absences may go unexcused if a student does not 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.  Parents, please contact the school as soon as possible if you are planning on picking up your student so we have time to retrieve them.

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 – 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.  Absences may go unexcused if a student does not return the form to the attendance clerk.

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.

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 – 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.  Absences may go unexcused if a student does not 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.  Parents, please contact the school as soon as possible if you are planning on picking up your student so we have time to retrieve them.
