Parents are ON Patrol
The rear, small parking lot near Life Lab is designated for staff parking ONLY.

  Please do not park, drop off, or pick up your children from this area.  

Our students are dismissed at different times and the traffic can be dangerous to students walking up and back to class from Life Lab. Please use the designated drop and pick up zones in our school lot and if you would like to walk with your child the Siltanen Parking Lot is for you!
Dear Vine Hill Families,

Fall is in the air! Students are enjoying field trips to the fire station, the pumpkin patch, and the farm. I look forward to our Halloween Parade on Wednesday, October 31st! Please remember there is no school on November 1st and 2nd. Time sure flies when you're having fun.

Our student leadership will be helping our Parents on Patrol in the morning with drop off!
A very generous parent donated TWO buddy benches to Vine Hill!

They will be delivered in 4 to 5 weeks!! Look for them on the playground.

Thank you Student Leadership for suggesting this!

Introduction: SVUSD is partnering with the City of Scotts Valley, Ecology Action and the County Health Department to develop a Safe Routes to Schools Plan for all SVUSD schools. The Plan will identify barriers to students walking and biking to school safely as well as a list of possible solutions and will be used to guide future transportation investments around schools.

Please complete the 5-minute survey at the link below to tell us how your student gets to school, and share any transportation issues or obstacles your student faces. This data is critical to help us address safety issues around schools. Thank you for your participation!
