Principal's Message


HAVE A GREAT SUMMER VACATION!

Enjoy the time with family and friends

See you next year


If Your Child is going INTO 7th GRADE - This is a BIG DEAL!

Over 100 SLVMS students going into 7th grade Cannot Attend School Next Year!

That is because they do not have a Tdap Booster Immunization on file with the Middle School. Under state law, exemptions based on personal beliefs are no longer an option for the vaccines that are required for 7th Grade entry.

Students without proof of immunization or a medical exemption, will NOT be allowed to attend school on the first day of school in August. Please be sure to bring proof of your child's vaccine to the office of San  Lorenzo Valley Middle School well before school ends in June. If you have any questions, please call Nurse Debbie at 335-4452 ext. 236.   


A short message regarding the above information:  This is state law.  Public schools must carry out state law.  What one believes about this law one way or the other,  is of personal importance, but not relevant to the fact that we, as a public school, cannot nor will not make exceptions or ignore the law.  Thanks for understanding.

SLVMS Raises over $11,000 for the American Cancer Society

60 students from SLV Middle School participated in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life event on June 4 and 5 at Skypark in Scotts Valley.  The students spent 4 months fundraising, and raised $11,564.60.  Along with 24 other relay teams, the students took turns walking for 24 hours at the relay, and the overall participant with the most laps was 7th grader Lucas Collins, who walked 68 miles in 24 hours.  The team received the "Most Engaged Team" award at the end of the relay.

Just a quick reminder about medications at school as we hit cold and flu season.

School employees are not permitted to dispense any type of medication to students without a signed physician's note.  This includes all over the counter drugs such as Ibuprofen and Benadryl. A parent can come to school and give a child medication, but school employees cannot.



Please be aware that ALL District sites are considered CLOSED between Sunset and Sunrise.  Unauthorized personnel are NOT permitted on District school sites between Sunset and Sunrise. This will be enforced by District Security as well as the local Sheriff's Department. Please share this information with all of the members in your household.  This is to ensure the security of our facilities and the safety of our staff and students.  Thank you for your assistance.  




The SLV Education Foundation is an active 501c3 non-profit organization in need of revitalization, new energy and new leadership. 

Serving all SLV students primarily through various community and fundraising efforts, the Foundation has in the past helped fund such student programs as class-size reduction. The Foundation is now looking for volunteer leaders interested in finding ways to help improve and fund classroom improvement, teacher assistance and after-school/summer activity programs; and even a program to ensure that all students are provided technology and instruction on its use as a part of their education.


If you or someone you know are energetic, hard-working, and committed to the idea that our students deserve the absolute best opportunity to excel that our community can provide, then please consider joining as a leader of the SLV Education Foundation.

In response to students and members of our community who are highly allergic to fragrances and scents, the SLVUSD Board of Trustees adopted a California School Board Association policy to make all district classrooms and offices fragrant neutral.

SLVMS has parents and/or students with respiratory issues who can have negative reactions to fragrances. Please take care to follow the policy while on campus.  The announcement is below.

Staff and students shall refrain from bringing furred or feathered animals, stuffed toys that may collect dust mites, scented candles, incense or air fresheners and from using perfume or cologne, scented hair spray, nail polish or nail polish remover that are not fragrance-free in classrooms or other enclosed areas or buildings. The public shall be made aware that there is a growing number of people with fragrance allergies or sensitivities that can have mild to severe health consequences, including asthmatic attacks and other respiratory issues.
