The Colorado Department of Education has identified Wednesday, October 3 as the official statewide October Count Day for the 2018-2019 school year. To comply with this state mandate and ensure maximum attendance, St. Vrain Valley Schools will have a full day of school with a normal start time on Wednesday, October 3 in place of the previously scheduled late start day.
August is always an exciting time in St. Vrain Valley Schools, filled with anticipation of the start of another outstanding academic year. As I reflect on this past year, I am extremely proud of the immeasurable achievements of our students, teachers and staff. As we move forward together, we will continue to advance high-quality learning for all of our students.
This week, St. Vrain Valley Schools welcomed approximately 32,000 students and 5,000 teachers and staff to the 2018-2019 school year. The first day of school is always full of excitement and brings back many memories for students, families and teachers alike. Share your first day of school and #imhereSVVSD moments with our community @SVVSD.
Accidents happen! The SVVSD Optional iPad Insurance Program for secondary students covers many of the costs associated with a damaged or lost iPad. This year, the cost has been lowered to $25 AND includes new levels of coverage. Plus, students who opt into insurance this year will be able to exchange a non-functioning cable for a new one at no cost! Use this link to learn more.
We at Erie High School would like to thank parents for their patience during morning drop-offs. We understand that traffic can be tricky in the mornings at EHS and we are constantly trying to improve the experience for our students and parents, especially with the addition of the new Soaring Heights PreK-8 next door.
***Important Update: Please pull as far forward as possible. We extended our drop-off lane to allow more traffic to make it throug more quickly. Please pull forward as far as the Commons before letting your student off.***
