SVHS Registration Letter 2019-2020

March 6, 2019

Dear Students and Parents,

We hope everyone is having a great year! The purpose of this letter is to provide you with information about registration and other important upcoming events at SVHS.  As we finish this school year we are trying to make it easier for students and parents to complete the registration process for the 2019-2020 school year.  Star Valley High School students begin classes on Monday, August 26th at 8:15 a.m. A copy of the SVHS 2019-2020 Calendar will be available on our website on March 15, 2019.  Please pay particular attention to Fridays so you know which Fridays we have school and which Fridays we are off as a school district.  

It is important to note that students must be current on all immunizations or they will not be allowed to attend school. If you were notified that our records do not show proper immunizations for your child, please contact us as soon as possible to correct the situation and ensure that your child will be able to begin the school year on time.

Initial registration will begin at parent-teacher conferences on Tuesday, March 12th at Etna Elementary from 4:30pm – 7:00pm and Wednesday, March 13th at SVHS from 4:00pm – 7:30pm. Instructions for the online portion of registration for returning students is available at tech.lcsd2.org/parents.  The online registration contains forms required for students to participate in SVHS activities.  This is where you can update your Infinite Campus information, email, phone, address, etc.  This information is what we use to communicate with you, if it is not accurate you will not receive our notifications.     

During parent-teacher conference and registration the following options will be available:

  1.  Meet with a counselor to ask questions about developing your student’s four-year academic plan in Infinite Campus.
  2. Someone will be available to assist you with Infinite Campus Login and Navigation including: how to approve your student’s four-year plan, pay fees and lunch money, check grades, and check attendance.

Returning students need to have a four-year academic plan completed and approved by their guardian by March 22, 2019.  Schedules will be available for students to view in April.  Schedule adjustments must be completed by May 10, 2019.  

Registration times for New Students:

New Students – Wednesday August 14 and Thursday, August 15 from 9:00am – 3:00pm in the SVHS Counseling Office.

Registration for Returning Students will look a little different this year:

Activity Fees are due at the beginning of each activity season.

$25.00 each for Football, Golf, Volleyball, Cross Country, Basketball, Wrestling, Indoor Track, Track & Field, Soccer, Cheerleading, Brave Cadettes, FFA, Skills USA, Speech/Debate, Choir, Band, Orchestra, Art, and Drama.  (These fees should not be paid until the activity season begins.)

The following charges are optional and are not due until September 1, 2019 if you choose to purchase.  On March 12-13, 2019 at parent-teacher conferences, we would like you to let us know which of the following fees you wish to pay before next school year so we can add them to your account on Infinite Campus.  Once fees have been added to your account you can pay the fees however and whenever you wish before September 1, 2019.  (Online, Check, Credit Card, or Cash)

$48.00 Yearbook- Must be paid for by September 1, 2019.

$40.00 iPad Purchase Plan. If you do not want to participate in the iPad Purchase Plan you will not be charged the $40.00, however, you will be responsible for all damages to the iPad and pay the full cost of repair.

Various Class Charges– Class charges will be limited to costs associated with supplemental materials that are needed when students choose to create projects that extend in scope beyond the general course requirements. The instructor will determine when charges are necessary to cover the expense of more elaborate projects. Students will be made aware of these charges during the first weeks of school.

Lunch money may also be deposited to your lunch account online.  Meal prices for the coming year are $3.00 for lunch and $2.00 for breakfast.

School pictures will be taken during school on Wednesday, September 4, 2019.  We ask that all students have their picture taken, even if you do not purchase a packet, so you can obtain an ID card.

Student handbooks are available online at svhs.lcsd2.org. Please review the handbook with your student.
