Support Greenbrook When You Shop on Amazon
AmazonSmile
The holidays are around the corner and it's now easier than ever to support the Eagle Fund with your Amazon shopping! Sign up for Amazon Smile with the following link and select SRVEF-Greenbrook Eagle Fund as your charity:

When you shop Amazon from your browser or the Amazon app, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of your purchases to the Eagle Fund. Over time this can add up to a significant value for Greenbrook!

Zoom Authentication Update
We are turning on an extra protection feature in Zoom called "authentication" to ensure that all participants who enter our Zoom instructional sessions are approved or qualified members of the SRVUSD domain or community. This feature will keep out unwanted/unknown visitors, some of which might come into the session to create disruption or to act inappropriately. We have not had much of this in elementary school; however, we know as kids become more comfortable with the platforms, there is more capability for mischief. This authentication feature is just another layer of protection to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for our students in the remote learning sessions. 

This authentication feature will begin on Wednesday, Nov. 4th. 

So what do you need to do? Here are some instructions and videos to help you authenticate your student's account:

**Once you go through these steps, you need to also verify the account through an email sent to your student's gmail account (see Mrs. Murphy's video below for help)

SRVUSD Child Nutrition Program Update
The Free For All Meals program has been extended through June 30, 2021. 

What does this mean for our SRVUSD Families? 
Any parent with children 18 years and under can pick up a breakfast and lunch meal at one of our designated meal locations for free. Vegetarian options are available. No food is wasted, and this is open to all SRVUSD families. Parents unable to pick up student meals should contact Child Nutrition (srvusdeats@srvusd.net) for accommodations. 

This is a wonderful service for our kids and community. Visit the Child Nutrition website for the most up to date information including pick up locations, menus, heating instructions, and FAQs.
