Dear Panther Families,
We are ramping up to the time of year we move quickly and experience many fun events. This newsletter has information about Open House, our Book Fair, a few items about next year, and important opportunities through the County Office. It is a long newsletter, but with a lot of important information. Grab some coffee and dig in.
We have almost finalized the current plan for next year's electives, next week current 6th and 7th graders will get their elective request Google Form emailed to them. The students will have to submit with their school Gmail account, but it will be able to be edited/changed until the due date. Parents/Guardians will be cc'd on the email so they are aware the student has had it sent to them, but will not be able to access the form since it needs to be filled out with the SLVUSD account. I will have the descriptions of the elective options shown in the email for parents/guardians to preview. 
Current 6th-grade families ONLY-prior to starting 7th grade there is a state requirement for students to receive the TDap and Varicella shots. Our health team has been hard at work sending letters to families that have not yet sent in the proof of vaccination. A follow-up email will be coming soon to make sure the students have it before the first day of school. Here is a link to the state requirements if you want additional information. CDPH Requirements K-12

SAVE THE DATE (5/17): SLV Music Boosters will be hosting our Second Annual SLV Music & Art Festival at Roaring Camp Railroads on May 17, 2023.
