Sierra Verde Weekly Update

The Home Stretch
We are down to the last four days of the 2020-21 school year! Our Vipers are continuing to wrap up projects, give presentations, launch rockets, build mini golf courses, code drones, and complete finals as we head into the last week! We would like to congratulate our newest NJHS members who were inducted this week as well as our cross country team and Coach O'Berry on a great season this year!
We would like to remind everyone that next week 8th grade promotion will be streamed on Wednesday morning at 9:00 am. This link will be only for our 8th grade families as we do have a cap on the number of participants on our zoom license. 8th grade parents, please watch your email on Monday for the login details. The promotion ceremony will be recorded and posted to our website on Thursday for anyone to view on demand. 8th graders will be released at 11:45 on Wednesday and will not attend on Thursday.
K-7th grade students will have a full day on Wednesday and a 1/2 day on Thursday with a 12:05 pm release (or 11:45 for walkers). Last day for backpacks is Wednesday, please do not send students with a backpack on Thursday. Our offices will close early on Thursday at 3:30 pm and will resume normal hours on Friday.

Lost & Found Cleanout
Please have your son/daughter check out the lost and found next week for any missing belongings. After May 19, we will donate all leftover clothing or belongings still on campus. The lost and found rack will be out in the courtyard for students to browse through Wednesday.
Summer Medication Pick Up
Nurse Lynn wants to remind all of those families that have medication in the nurse’s office that it must be picked up by an adult no later than Wednesday, May 19th at 3:30 pm. We do not keep any medication over the summer. Any medication not picked up will be destroyed after the pick up date.
Please feel free to Nurse Lynn with any questions or concerns, and have a wonderful summer!

A Message from DVUSD
Later this summer, parents of returning students will be able to electronically verify current medical and emergency contact information and update any changes for their student(s) that are currently enrolled. In order to access these important yearly documents, parents will have to have a PowerSchool Parent account set up. ALL PARENTS who HAVE NOT already created a PowerSchool Parent account, NEED TO DO SO ASAP!
This electronic process will replace some of the paperwork that we send home on the first few days of school. We will be sending home PowerSchool Parent Account setup instructions with students. If you need help after receiving the set up instructions or would like to request the instructions, please contact Mariana.Bennett@dvusd.org for details.
