Help the National Honor Society and Winter Days with This Garbage Can of a T-shirt

Front Back

You may remember that back in March, remote  learning didn’t exist and the National Honor Society was a week away from our Trashion Show that we put on every year to raise money for local food banks.  Literally, the day that school was cancelled, our order of 130 t-shirts arrived at Spring Valley.  Fortunately, they say “Trashion Show 2020” so we can still sell them for another six weeks in celebration of our remote/virtual Trashion Show. 

Originally, NHS was going to donate the profits from the sale of the t-shirts to the Souper Bowl of Caring.  Now, we will donate all proceeds from the sale, including our cost, to Winter Days.  We know that there are many people in need and the usual Winter Days can drive will be more challenging than ever.  Please consider buying a t-shirt and helping Winter Days reach their goals this year. 

We will also be selling Trashion Show mugs for $10 to support Winter Days. The mugs are made by students in our employability class, a class that prepares students with exceptional needs for life after high school.  The name of their company is Dragon Designs and they can help you with your design needs.  By purchasing from them, you are helping our students meet their 350 hour requirement to earn their employability certificate. 

If you think our logo is too “trashy,” you may also donate directly to our cause by simply donating in $10 increments. If we sell out of the t-shirts in your size we will refund your money or give you the option of being part of a reorder if there is enough interest.  Thank you in advance for your support.  You may order through Parent Portal.  If you don’t have a Parent Portal account, ask a member of NHS and they can order for you.

PHASE 2 MEAL SERVICE PLAN


E-learner meal pickup (Unchanged):
 We’ve received approval to offer E-learners a “7-day pack” of meals on Fridays, beginning on November 6th, 2020. Parents/E-Learning students will have the ability to pick up meals from 6 schools: R2I2, Longleaf Middle, Dent Middle, Muller Road Middle, Summit Parkway Middle, and E.L. Wright Middle curbside on Fridays between 8:00 am until 11:00 am. Students will receive a variety of meals including sandwiches, frozen items with reheating information such as burgers, chicken nuggets, chicken sandwiches, etc. As we are operating under SSO, we will only request the name of the student. We will not request any additional documentation (as of October 26th, subject to change).


Phase 2 meal service: We understand all schools have different plans for meal service, as students, schedules, and school blueprints differ. While meals are at no cost, we need to ensure we have accountability measures in place for auditing and reimbursement purposes (scanning ID cards, student bar codes). We’ve met with many schools already and will make ourselves available to support in any way.


Weekend meals for in-person students: According to feedingamerica.org, 1 in 6 children struggles with hunger and food insecurity. We are fortunate that the USDA has extended the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) that allows us to feed students at no cost, and on weekends and some holidays*.

  • Weekend meals (Unchanged) (Elementary): On Fridays (only) Elementary students will be offered weekend “light meals” to provide sustenance for Saturdays and Sundays. These meals will include Uncrustables, Nutrigrain bars, and assorted fruit/juice offerings. Please work with your cafeteria staff on how this distribution will look on Fridays (eg. offered as students approach bus loop, allow students to grab from the cafeteria at end of the day, etc.). Please encourage your students to take a meal through morning/afternoon announcements, etc!
  • Weekend meals(Secondary) (Only change): AA/BB students: will be offered 5-day meal packs on Fridays, beginning on November 6th, 2020. Parents/secondary students will have the ability to pick up meals from 6 schools: R2I2, Longleaf Middle, Dent Middle, Muller Road Middle, Summit Parkway Middle, and E.L. Wright Middle curbside on Fridays between 8:00 am until 11:00 am.

Wright Middle curbside on Fridays between 8:00 am until 11:00 am. Students will receive a variety of meals including sandwiches, frozen items with reheating information such as burgers, chicken nuggets, chicken sandwiches, etc. As we are operating under SSO, we will only request the name of the student. We will not request any additional documentation (as of October 26th, subject to change).


Phase 2 meal service: We understand all schools have different plans for meal service, as students, schedules, and school blueprints differ. While meals are at no cost, we need to ensure we have accountability measures in place for auditing and reimbursement purposes (scanning ID cards, student bar codes). We’ve met with many schools already and will make ourselves available to support in any way.


Weekend meals for in-person students: According to feedingamerica.org, 1 in 6 children struggles with hunger and food insecurity. We are fortunate that the USDA has extended the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) that allows us to feed students at no cost, and on weekends and some holidays*.

  • Weekend meals (Unchanged) (Elementary): On Fridays (only) Elementary students will be offered weekend “light meals” to provide sustenance for Saturdays and Sundays. These meals will include Uncrustables, Nutrigrain bars, and assorted fruit/juice offerings. Please work with your cafeteria staff on how this distribution will look on Fridays (eg. offered as students approach bus loop, allow students to grab from the cafeteria at end of the day, etc.). Please encourage your students to take a meal through morning/afternoon announcements, etc!
  • Weekend meals(Secondary) (Only change): AA/BB students: will be offered 5-day meal packs on Fridays, beginning on November 6th, 2020. Parents/secondary students will have the ability to pick up meals from 6 schools: R2I2, Longleaf Middle, Dent Middle, Muller Road Middle, Summit Parkway Middle, and E.L. Wright Middle curbside on Fridays between 8:00 am until 11:00 am.

Richland School District Two Virtual Choice Fair


Location
: Wherever! The Choice Fair is all virtual. 

Registration: Parents are encouraged to register and registration is now open! The link is: rsd2choice.vfairs.com

Date: Dec. 1 & 2.

Live Chats: Families will be able to chat LIVE with reps from schools during the Choice Fair, which means they won’t have to struggle to hear over hundreds of people talking in a gym or multipurpose room. 

Watch Presentations Later: Parents can’t get off work? Can’t find a babysitter? No problem! Another perk of this new experience is that the presentations will be available online for 30 days AFTER the Choice Fair.

New Chromebook Distribution Information

Attention Spring Valley Parents & Guardians, 

Now that Phase 2 has started, Spring Valley High School students will begin receiving new Chromebooks. Some students have already been issued a new Dell 3100 Chromebook and case.  For those that have not yet received one, we will start rollout on Monday, Nov. 16th. This will be for face-to-face students only. Students will need to bring their Chromebook and charger to school. Students will be receiving their new Chromebook through their English classes. 

We will have new Chromebook distribution for virtual students on Friday, November 20th, from 1 -3 pm. Any virtual student who still needs the new 3100 Chromebook and case will need to bring their old Chromebook and charger to SVHS to exchange it for a new 3100 on that day.

New Chromebook Distribution:

Mon-Thur, Nov. 16-19: In-person students will receive Chromebooks in their English classes next week. They need to bring their old Chromebook and charger to school with them.

Fri, Nov 20: Virtual students will need to come to SVHS between the hours of 1-3pm. 

Again, please be sure that the week of November 16th that your child brings both their Chromebook and charger to school on Monday/Tuesday for AA students and on Wednesday/Thursday for BB students.
