Principal's Message

Thanks to everyone who came to the Advancement Ceremony last night.  It was great to see so many people there to support and celebrate the efforts of these kids.  It was a wonderful way to put an exclamation point on the culmination of Middle School for a great group of kids.  If anyone has awesome pictures from the Advancement Ceremony, please email them to me and I will put some on the Middle School Website for the Summer.

Thanks again for all of your support this year.  We couldn’t do it without you.



TDAP Immunization Needed Before 7th Grade

There are 100 current SLVMS 6th Graders who, as of today, cannot attend 7th Grade at SLVMS in August!

More than half of our current 6th graders do not have their Tdap immunization on file with the middle school. 

If we do not get proof of this immunization, California law will not allow us to have your child start school in August. 

Please bring proof of this immunization to the office as soon as possible. 

The Middle School Office is open from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm Monday through Thursday until June 25.  

The Middle School Office will reopen on August 5.



Are you moving away this summer?

If your family is moving out of the area this summer, please contact the MS office to let us know. 

We would be happy to provide assistance with records for your child's enrollment in a new school. 

Also, if you plan to enroll your child elsewhere for the upcoming school year, please contact the MS office at 335-4452.



Online Student Information and Registration for 2015-16 School Year

Updating your current student’s information, or registering new students at SLVUSD, will be done online using Infosnap. For our returning students, this includes student emergency information, contacts, health history, and health concerns.

It is imperative that this information be updated annually so that we can contact you in an emergency situation.


Also, the optional student accident insurance will be offered via the online registration process. The District is sent the email notifications, with the required Snap Code, to parents of all returning students on Friday, June 5.


Families that do not have an email account had their Snap Code mailed to their homes on Friday, June 5. The email came from gheagerty@slvusd.org.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding the online student registration process, please contact our Student Information System Specialist, Gail Heagerty, at gheagerty@slvusd.org or by phone at 335-4425 ext. 117.

SLVMS Information

All Adults Coming on Campus Must Check in at the SLVMS Office - EVERY TIME

We welcome parents and family to a be a part of daily life here at school,  but we must require that you follow a few safety procedures:


ALL ADULTS who do not work for the school MUST sign in at the office before coming on campus and then wear a visitor sticker.  EVERY TIME. Even if you are regularly in a room, or your child is part of a different school such as the Nature Academy Charter School or Charter Homeschool, you must sign in EVERY time you come on campus. This is a SAFETY ISSUE and there are no exceptions. 

The inconvenience of signing in each time you arrive on campus is far outweighed by the school’s ability to keep the campus safe. We do not know every parent by sight and while you are welcome here, for the safety of our children, please sign in every time you come on campus.

Thank you for adherence to our safety procedures.



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. 

Questions – contact George Wylie, 338-0578 or georgewylie@yahoo.com1-



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.15
