We have had just over 300 forms returned for 1000 students. All students must have a new form each year.

Thank you students and parents for your cooperation!

School Dance Dress Code

Several questions have come up about dress code for Homecoming.  While school day dress code is relaxed for dances, all students are required to be fully clothed and wear all components of their clothing ensemble at all times with the exception of jacket or wrap.  Two piece, strapless and halter dresses are allowed as long as cleavage is adequately covered and cutouts do not expose more than allowable during the school day.  Dress length must be mid-thigh, as during school day.  An undershirt is not considered fully dressed.

Cybersafety Presentation and Resources

West Virginia State Trooper Grose delivered an informative and engaging presentation on online safety to middle and high school parents on Tuesday evening 2/21/2017. The presentation covered  the potential dangers of popular apps with teens including “dating” apps, crime statistics, relevant laws, sexting, cyberbullying, and ended with a discussion of apps parents can download to help ensure their children’s safety online.

The talk was held in the SVHS auditorium and was arranged by teachers from the Freshman Academy. Trooper Grose presented to the 9th grade students in the academy earlier this month on  2/9/17. Last year, the presentation was given to all Spring Valley students.

Spring Valley teachers regularly embed cybersafety as part of the curriculum from sites such as Common Sense  Media. Freshman Academy teachers focused on online safety during the “suspended curriculum” in the first week of school this year.

Trooper Grose has graciously let us share her resources on the SVHS website. Below you will find a copy of her presentation as well as handouts she brought. There is a wealth of great information located in these two files.
