Forgotten lunches, homework, instruments, textbooks and library books

In order to control the interruptions to the classroom while your student is learning, we will no longer have parents deliver forgotten items to the class.   A phone call will be made to the class and your student will come up at an appropriate time.   Please note the following procedures:

1. Your child forgot his/her lunch or homework they will be placed on the round table in the office.  Please make sure your student's name and grade is on the lunch/homework.

2. If your child forgets his/her instrument, you should drop it off on the stage in the MPR.

On Tuesday, December 15, 2015, the San Ramon Valley Board of Education approved the 2016-2017 Instructional Calendar. This calendar ends the first semester before the Winter Break, shifting the calendar forward by one week.

 

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District would like to thank the many people who worked on the calendar and provided valuable input through email and at Board of Education meetings. The San Ramon Valley Unified School District is fortunate to benefit from a community that engages in our processes for the betterment of all students.

 

To view the new 2016-2017 instructional calendar click on the link below:

 

2016-2017 SRVUSD Instructional Calendar

 

Some key points of the new calendar include:

  • School starts on Monday, August 15, 2016.
  • School ends on Thursday, June 1, 2017.
  • The first semester ends prior to winter break on Wednesday, December 21, 2016.
  • Winter break ends and the second semester begins on Monday, January 9, 2017.
  • Spring Break occurs from April 3-7, 2017.
  • The five fall conference days occur from October 3-7, 2016
  • Spring conference days are spread-out. They will be on January 23, February 13-14 and March 6-7.
  • Finals will take place Dec. 16 (A Period), 19-21 and May 26 (A Period), 30-31 and June 1.

Background

 

In the spring of 2014, SRVUSD formed an Instructional Calendar Exploration Committee to examine the community’s interests, and the positives and negatives of ending the first semester prior to Winter Break. From that process, the committee developed a draft calendar that was shared with staff, parents and the community.

 

After sending out the draft 2016-2017 Instructional Calendar that proposes shifting the first semester to end prior to the Winter Break (thus shifting the calendar forward by one week), the SRVUSD received public input both in favor and against the proposed change.  Over the summer, SRVUSD staff continued to gather input and research questions raised by the community. From this information staff developed a report that can be viewed by clicking the link below:

 

SRVUSD Instructional Calendar Exploration Report

 

After reading the report, community members were invited to provide input. Comments were collected and included in a presentation to the Board of Education on October 20, 2015 Board Meeting. The Board did  not take action on the calendar at this meeting, but heard public comments and held a discussion. 

 

After the calendar was bargained with SRVUSD's three employee groups, on December 15, 2015, the Board of Education approved the final 2016-2017 instructional calendar.

 

The following Questions and Answers were developed based on questions received during the process. Please click the link below to learn more about the instructional calendar exploration conversation.

 

Instructional Calendar Exploration Q&A

 

Questions about the proposed 2016-2017 Instructional Calendar and the Instructional Calendar Exploration Report can be sent to InstructionalCalendar@srvusd.net.
