Dear SVDP Community,

We look forward to seeing your children on Tuesday, August 17. This newsletter includes staff bios and reminders to be ready for a successful school year!


Summer Projects - Facilities Update

This past year your Annual Giving and Blazers & Baubles contributions were used towards health and safety improvements as well as some furniture upgrades throughout the school.

As reported in our last newsletter, the seismic retrofit to the middle school building on almost complete. We also installed a new fob / key card system throughout the school. This system improves the security and accessibility of the school buildings.

Our Innovation Center (middle school lower level) is pending the arrival of new furniture which is expected in October. We also have added more flexible furniture in some classrooms and the Learning Hub (?).
