NO STUDENT DELIVERIES ON VALENTINES DAY
We are excited to celebrate Valentine’s Day on Monday. We want to remind all of our families that we do not accept or will allow any deliveries (this includes any food, balloons, or gifts) at any point during the school day. This includes before school and at lunch. We also ask our students that any Valentine’s Day gift exchange occur outside of school time. Thank you for helping us minimize the disruption to our school day.
VIRTUAL SPING OPEN HOUSE
Sparkleberry Lane Construction
We wanted to let all of our families know that we will be experiencing some traffic issues on Sparkleberry Lane in front of the school over the next 2-3 months. Richland County will be making updates to the gas lines, storm drains, and adding sidewalks. Work crews will do their best to minimize the impact to arrival and departure times at school. If you are a car rider or student driver, we strongly encourage you to arrive early to school to make sure you are on time for class.
College of Charleston President Dr. Hsu Visits the Valley
Spring Valley High School had the honor and privilege of hosting a meet a greet with College of Charleston’s President Dr. Andrew Hsu. Dr. Hsu and several of his staff members visited with our early acceptance students to engage them in conversations that included campus life, academic majors, and the city of Charleston. It was truly an honor and pleasure to have Dr. Hsu and his staff visit Spring Valley High School.

SAT/ACT Prep Classes
Richland Two sent out an update for employees and parents with information on the district’s updated isolation and quarantine procedures for schools released by S.C. DHEC on December 31, 2021. We encourage you to thoroughly review this information by looking at the Covid-19 Update Newsletter. One important point to note in this update is related to students having to quarantine if they are identified as a close contact. The below statement from this update outlines that if you are 16 years of age or older, you must have the initial vaccination series and the booster to avoid having to quarantine if considered a close contact. Please review the Covid-19 Update Newsletter for complete details about this and other changes.
- To avoid quarantine when identified as a close contact you must have received the vaccine doses you’re eligible for (completed initial vaccination series and booster for ages 16 and up, or completed initial vaccination series for ages 5-15).
Questions about your child being Covid-19 positive or is a close contact of someone who is Covid-19 positive, please contact our school nurse Elisabeth Walter at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling the Health Room at ext. 69092
