    Update from the Superintendent - November 20th



    Dear Scotts Valley Community,

    As we are closing out November and heading into our Thanksgiving week break, I would like to express my thanks and gratitude to our educational community. Over these past months, our educational community has expanded as parents are needing to provide more assistance for their children learning at home. Our teachers have had to learn new ways to instruct, and students have had to navigate new ways to learn. This year, 2020, has certainly been a challenging year, which makes it even more important for us to focus on the things for which we are thankful. It is unfortunate that this pandemic continues to keep us distanced from each other and our loved ones, but we will keep moving toward that light at the end of the tunnel.  Here’s hoping for a short tunnel!  

    As you may already know, the Governor has issued a travel advisory as well as a gathering guidance. CDPH Travel Advisory and CDPH Guidance for Gatherings

    The CDC has also put out a recommendation against travel for Thanksgiving in hopes of helping to contain the rapid spread of this pandemic.

    I hope each of you has a safe and healthy holiday break.  Please take care of yourselves, your older relatives, and especially, your kids.  They need us all.

    Update from the Superintendent - November 16th



    Hello Scotts Valley Community,

    As you are aware, Santa Cruz County was identified to move into the purple tier today which may change our timeline for hybrid instruction. However, even in the purple tier, we are able to continue with small group in-person support. As many of you know, we are in discussions with our teachers and we are preparing the hybrid schedules for when we are able to transition to that type of  instruction. Additionally, site administration will be sending out parent surveys, or have recently done so, and we ask that you complete those surveys with the assumption that we would be in a colored tier that allows us to implement a hybrid schedule.

    I acknowledge this continual change is exhausting for all of our families as well as for our staff. We will continue to stay on our current course up to winter break, unless directed to change this course by local and state officials.

    I sincerely hope our community adheres to the safety precautions that are advised, which will help us move back to fewer restrictions.

    Here is the County Superintendents’ letter as well as the Press Release from the Santa Cruz County Health Services Agency.

    Thank you for continuing to support your children.
