Dear SVDP Community,

Don't be confused --- our Thursday newsletter is arriving on Wednesday! We wanted to make sure you had all the info needed for a strong start of the school year. Please keep reading!

School starts tomorrow, and we are excited to see parents and students back on campus. Both Thursday and Friday are early release days - pickup will be 12:45 for K - 2 and 12:55 for 3 - 8.

Morning assembly will be held in the courtyard until further notice. We are putting the finishing touches on the gym, and we want it to be perfect for your first visit.

If you plan to attend morning assembly and/or the Parent Guild coffee, please find street parking. Our staff lot (corner of Green and Pierce) will be full and should not be utilized by parents / volunteers.

Get a good night's sleep, eat a hearty breakfast, and arrive with a positive outlook for the year.
