SV Annual African American READ-IN

The 5th Annual African American Read-In is in full swing.  Our celebration is part of a national event hosted during the month of February by the National Council of the Teachers of English.   We have turned our library into a gallery to celebrate the history, art, and culture of African Americans.  We are fortunate to have Keith Tolen serving as our artist in residence this year.  He is inspiring our students to tap into their creativity.  He is a nationally recognized artist and truly a South Carolina treasure with 30 years of teaching experience.  We are blessed to have him at Spring Valley working with our students during this important event.

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 or by calling the Health Room at ext. 69092

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.

After School Tutoring

We will offer both on-campus and virtual tutoring options this year.  Offering both platforms allows us to provide more options for students to get academic assistance after school.  Please visit the SVHS Tutoring website for a complete schedule of the tutoring opportunities. 

A special thank you goes out to the Spring Valley Education Foundation for funding this important initiative.
