WE HAVE A BLOG WHERE WE REGULARLY REPORT ON THE HAPPENINGS AROUND OUR DISTRICT!
Incoming 7th Graders
All students entering, advancing or transferring into 7th grade will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster immunization (called “Tdap”) for school in the fall. No seventh graders will be allowed to start school until this documentation has been turned in.
This new school immunization law affects all students in public and private schools.
Pertussis is a very contagious respiratory disease that can be severe and last for months. The immunity received from either early childhood immunization or pertussis disease wears off over time, leaving older students and adults susceptible again to pertussis. Immunization with Tdap can protect students, schools and communities against pertussis

Welcome Back to School
Today our students started the 2015-2016 school year and we are honored and thrilled to have them with us!
There are many changes this year, from new math textbooks and instructional materials in all grades, to all-day kindergarten, improved technology in every classroom, and College-and-Career Readiness programs in our middle and high schools, to name just a few. We know that some of these changes might be overwhelming, but we are also very excited by the opportunities these bring to our staff and students.
Change is not always graceful or easy, but we know that these changes will benefit our students in the most positive of ways. Our students will be better prepared for their future. They will not just be filled with facts, but with a love of learning that will extend far beyond our time with them.
It is not enough to declare change. Change must be nurtured and adjusted to be successful. In the coming months, you will see new and improved programs and methods to reach out to all of you because we do want to know if what we are doing works for you. Look for revamped websites, a district smart phone app for direct parent communications, and expanded social media outreach. We are bringing in new software to better disclose our fiscal status, making us more transparent to the public. We are also working to make our campuses as safe, efficient, and attractive as possible. Many of these things will take time to complete, but we are excited about the possibilities they will bring. As I told our staff last week, I ask that you honor that space between “no longer” and “not quite yet,” and please be assured that we are working tirelessly to complete all of these tasks as quickly as possible.
We ask that you walk with us on this journey, that you support our staff and students as they embark on these amazing years to come, and that you offer your input if we stumble along the way. We are here for you, whether you reach out to our staff at our school sites or the district office, come to me, or turn to your SVUSD Board Trustees.
Have an amazing 2015-2016 school year!

Traffic Safety-A Message from the SVPD and Us
The Simi Valley Police Department, in partnership with the Simi Valley Unified School District, has produced the attached PowerPoint presentation as a public service message regarding traffic concerns in and around our schools. Increased traffic congestion and driver frustration have become hallmarks for the first few weeks of school. We want all of our students to be safe, in and around our schools, and we want our community neighbors to know that we respect and honor their homes. Please take a few minutes to watch the presentation and know that the SVPD will step up patrols around our schools for the coming weeks.
