Looking for Noon Duty Supervisors and Crossing Guard

We are in need of noon duty supervisors and crossing guards for our site.  Please email rr.office-staff@srvusd.net, if you are interested.  You can find the employment opportunities at: https://www.srvusd.net/employmentopportunities


Spring 2021 Starts Tuesday, January 5th

All students in Grades TK-12 will start January 5th in full remote instruction, with their new class assignments.  Once we have been given board approval, we will start with the hybrid/remote schedule.  In the meantime, we will continue with the existing remote schedule.  See schedules below.  For Spring 2021, we have about 32% of students changing classrooms/teachers to accommodate declaration requests of being remote or hybrid.  We understand that change is hard, but it can also bring new beginnings.  We hope for smooth transitions for all of our students as we embark on this next journey to learning together.


Teachers will be sending out their weekly emails.  Please reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any questions regarding your child’s class.

If you have any questions regarding placement, feel free to email me at hnguyen2@srvusd.net.  Students will be placed on a waitlist if a change is needed.


Note: TK/Kinder schedule may differ.  Refer to the classroom’s daily schedule.


Reopening Dashboard

SRVUSD have updated the Reopening Dashboard on our district website to reflect the additional work that has been done. You can also check out the COVID Tracking Dashboard.  This COVID Dashboard will allow you to monitor, in a very transparent manner, COVID-19 activity in the SRVUSD.


Transitional Kindergarten Information Webinar

Students born between September 2nd – December 2nd are no longer eligible for Kindergarten. Students falling between these dates are Transitional Kindergarten eligible only.

Transitional Kindergarten is the “first of a two-year Kindergarten program” using a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate. In addition, this unique program prepares students for the rigor of the kindergarten curriculum in accordance with California State Standards. Teachers and administrators will discuss the transitional kindergarten curriculum and the benefits of this program. Parents of all incoming TK students are welcome!

Kindergarten Readiness Information Webinar

Age eligibility for Kindergarten: Your child must be five on or before September 1st, 2021


Kindergarten has dramatically changed over the past several years. With the introduction of California State Standards, children are being asked to do more academically. The continuum of language arts, math, science and history/social science standards begin in Kindergarten. As parents we want you to understand exactly what these expectations are. Please join this informational webinar where teachers and curriculum experts will discuss the kindergarten curriculum and readiness. Parents of all incoming kindergarten students are welcome!
