If your child has completed their COVID vaccination please either email a copy to dwalker@hvesd.com or bring a copy to the office. Thank You!

Keeping Students Home

Thank you for keeping your students home if they have any COVID symptoms, and please notify the school office immediately. Students may participate in weekly screening and we are prepared to test students should they be exposed to a positive COVID case while in school.

Library Volunteers

We have a special opportunity for parents to help in the library. We can use volunteers interested in helping inventory and catalog our current books, help getting our computer set up for self check in/out, help during Friday classes, a parent who will organize and oversee wish lists for new books, and parents who would like to staff the library during lunch recesses. If you are interested, please email Michelle Stewart at mstewart@hvesd.com.

Auction Procurement Committee!

Have you heard the news? The Happy Valley Auction and Dinner is coming back! That means we need to gather friends and helpers to begin the process of soliciting, collecting and uploading donated items to our auction software. This job can be easily done from your home any time you have a moment OR we can have a donation solicitation party to kick off the season. We need LOTS of help and every little bit of help counts. You can help a little or a lot. Please contact Heather Wilder at heatherwilder73@gmail.com for information on what you can do!
