OFFICE ANNOUNCEMENTS
Candace Molano
Sign-in / Sign-out : Students must ALWAYS sign in and out in the Attendance Office for partial day absences, even if a parent has called in . This is our only way of knowing when the student actually arrives and/or leaves campus. Students who leave school and do not sign out and/or arrive to school and do not sign in will be marked as cut for the periods that they miss (or are late to) and will be subject to disciplinary action. Parents cannot clear these cuts. This is a safety policy that is strictly enforced and is outlined in the student handbook. NO EXCEPTIONS .

Medical notes : Must be received within 48 hours of absence to excuse medical appointments.

College visits : For each college visit to be marked as excused, 1 day in-state with a letter of confirmation from the college or 2 days for out of state with a letter of confirmation from the college. Any days in excess of this policy will be marked unexcused.
Chronic illness : After the 10th day of illness (each partial day absence is calculated as 1 day), a Chronic Illness form must be submitted to the Attendance Office. Without a Chronic Illness form on file, a medical note for each subsequent absence due to illness will be required to mark the absence as excused. Failure to provide a medical note will result in the absence being marked unexcused.

Forgotten Items : Food or beverage items are to be dropped off on the table outside of the Attendance Office. All other items (excluding sports equipment or musical instruments) can be left on the metal racks inside the Attendance Office. Office staff are not able to accept items such as cell phones, laptops, money, or other valuable items

 BOOSTER BLURBS
Thank you to all who supported Academic Boosters during registration and our spring fundraising mailer.  This year we committed to funding 18 EXTRA classes. Two more classes than last year! We have not been able to fund 18 classes since 2009! Every student benefits from smaller class sizes and elective choices. YOU make that happen here at SRV! YOU are funding the gap between State funding allocated to our school and the cost of providing the opportunities we want our children to experience at SRVHS. Thank you!

Despite our success, we only had 50% of registered families donate. We can do better!   The strength of our funding determines the scale of services we can provide and sets the foundation for what we can commit to funding in future years.

If you have not had a chance to support Academic Boosters, you may still do so on by going to Future Fund and clicking the "View Store" button which will lead you to the Academic Boosters storefront: 


Donate in Installments
We have monthly installment plans for ANY amount you are able to donate. Every dollar raised at SRV stays at SRV!

Corporate Matching
If your company matches your donation, be sure to supply a record of your Academic Booster donation to your company benefits administrator. Print your receipt from Future Fund (see above for link) and click "View Receipt." Provide them with our Tax ID#: 68-0398728 and mailing address:  SRVHS Academic Boosters, P.O. Box 1004, Danville CA 94526

Your support is a very direct and immediate way to benefit the academic opportunities of your student in their classroom every day.
