Hello SVDP Community,

We are fast approaching the last day of school! This newsletter is full of information about fundraising, events, and activities.

The entire staff of SVDP wishes to thank every parent and their Parent Guild representatives for a wonderful week of treats and recognition in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week.

(Reprinted from 4/23/21) Please note, for the 2021-2022 school year, we will no longer have early dismissal on Wednesdays. Mondays we will release at 12:45 / 1:00. There will be no lunch service on Mondays.

As of now, we are planning to host extended care every day when school releases. Again, our plans are completely dependent on the city's COVID status and SFDPH regulations.

The Advisory Board and the Administration know that our amazing families are the best spokespeople for SVDP. To remain competitive in the San Francisco school marketplace, we must attract families that share our educational standards, values, and sense of community. For these reasons, the Advisory Board is pleased to announce a Family Referral Program.

Beginning July 1, 2021, if you recommend a family that accepts enrollment and pays all their fees, incidental charges, and tuition through October for the 2022-2023 school year, the Finance Committee will apply a $500 credit to your FACTS account in October 2022. You will get $500 for each successful referral, with a max of three referral credits. Only one SVDP family may claim a referral. The FACTS credit must be used towards tuition, not incidental charges. When a family applies, they should include the name of the referring family on their application. Online applications have been updated to include this information. The referring family does not need to write a letter of recommendation to receive the credit.


Before this program launches in July, we are offering a pilot initiative beginning immediately. From now to June 30, 2021, if a current family refers an incoming family to attend in Grades 1 – 7 (for the 2021-2022 school year), the referring family will receive a $500 credit in October 2021, contingent on the applicant accepting enrollment and paying all fees, incidental charges, and tuition through October 2021.
