Attention 10th and 11th grade students,
The Preliminary SAT – a National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test – is a preparatory version of the SAT exam. You can only take the PSAT once per year. Most students take the test in both 10th and 11th grade. If you earn a high score on the PSAT your junior year, you could qualify to receive a National Merit Scholarship. The PSAT tests your skills in reading, writing, and math. Please see your counselor for more information.
The cost is $16. Please bring a check to Mr. Jordan payable to Spring Valley High School. Only 25 spots are available. Reservations for a spot to take the PSAT is on a first come, first serve basis.
Attention Senior Parents,
Please plan to attend the Financial Aid meeting schedules for October 16th at 6pm in the school library. Representatives from the State Department will present information on scholarship opportunities, federal financial aid, and the FAFSA.

Parents, Graduates, Grandparents, and all other Community members,
Are you looking to work from home with flexible hours? SVHS will be offering an on-site PAID internship/training program in the evenings starting this fall. No experience in any technology field needed.
Come out to our town hall meeting next Tuesday (Sept. 19th) at our CTE if you or anyone else you know are interested and are looking for more information!
Health History forms MUST be returned or students will be excluded from field trips. Nurse cannot certify the field trip list without returned forms.
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!
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.
Students and Parents,
We are in the process of calling the parents of students that are still in need of immunizations to enter school.
Students will not be given any leeway and may not attend school until their immunizations are up to date. If students report to school, they will not be allowed into classes. They will have to be picked up immediately or records brought to the office. The absence is UNEXCUSED.
There is link to the list of required immunizations on the county webpage under the Parents & Students tab. Seniors need the following:
(tetanus, diptheria, pertussis)
|Proof of Booster Dose
One or Two Doses*
*Must have second dose if first was received before the child’s 16th birthday.
