HEALTH INFORMATION

Immunization Requirements

Student immunizations must be up-to-date PRIOR to attending the first day of school. To ensure your student has all vaccinations required to attend school, check our Washington’s 2021-22 Immunization Requirements, (en espanol) Find more immunization resources, here.

 

Physical Forms

To participate in school sports, student in grades 6-12 must get a physical examination from a health care provider. Families are encouraged to take care of this requirement during the summer, especially for fall sports. Below are links to each school's physical forms and other information. Please print off the physical form and ask your doctor to complete and sign it. This information must be updated every two years.

  

FOOD SERVICES

Free Meals Offered

  • School meals will continue to be offered at no cost for all students for the 2021-22 school year! The federal government has confirmed that it will continue the support it began in March 2020 due to COVID, providing school districts reimbursement for school meals.

 

School Menus

Find Food Services information online. Check back mid-August for interactive school menus. 

 

Apply for Free and Reduced Cost Meals Program

Although meals will be offered at no cost to all, families who qualify for this income-based federal program are still encouraged to apply each year, since there are other benefits associated with this program. Families may download the application here, apply in Family Access, or pick up a hard copy at the District Office. The 2021-22 application is now available online here.

 

Make Payments Online

Families can make Online Payments with a credit card for items such as program fees, extracurricular participation, etc. Lunch account payments (for ala carte purchases) will be processed after August 23. Course fees may not be available for payment until class schedules are finalized, after school begins.

 

COMMUNICATIONS

E-News Communication

E-News is the primary way our district and all SVSD schools communicate with parents. Parents/guardians of active students will automatically receive E-News from their current school and the district, based on email families provide to our Skyward student database. If you want to unsubscribe at any time, click on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of a message.  

 

Emergency Text Notifications

Our district uses a mass notification system called SchoolMessenger to inform families if there is a school emergency, including school closures or late starts. In addition to automated calls and email notifications, the district can send emergency text messages to parents and staff who have provided their cell phone numbers to the district’s database and have “opted in” to receive texts. (Since there could be a cost associated with texting from phone providers, individuals must “opt in” to allow emergency texts.) To sign up:  on your mobile phone, address a text to: 67587, type “Y” or “YES” as the message, and hit send. For more information, read this flyer.

 

Family Access

This online tool allows parents and guardians to manage and monitor their students’ records and progress. This includes checking grades, missing assignments, attendance, immunization records, emergency contacts, and food purchases. Parents can also sign up for notifications regarding attendance and low lunch balances.  Schools provide each family with a unique parent login/password to ensure confidentiality of their student’s information.

Bus Routes

Through E-Link, families can confirm bus stop locations, as well as pick-up and drop-off times for students’ routes.  New 2021-22 bus route information will be available after August 23. (To confirm what school your student will attend, email TransOffice@svsd410.org with your address.)

 

Parent Notification

Sign up annually for our free BusBulletin service to get an email or text when your child's school bus will be delayed more than 10 minutes, due to road conditions or other unanticipated events. Sign up after August 23, once updated 2021-22 bus routes have been posted.

 

SMART Tag

Since last January, our district began using a new system, called SMART Tag, to help track student ridership and support parent/bus/school communication. Each rider will receive a unique badge to scan upon boarding their bus. Learn more here, including how to sign up for the Parent Portal.
