from Jeff Calden
I will be heading down south early tomorrow morning with our football team for our game at The Brothers in Arms Classic in Orange County this Saturday morning against Layton Christian Academy of Utah. Because I will not be here tomorrow, the newsletter comes a day early this week. Have a wonderful weekend and GO COUGARS!

After you pass your driving test, you will be issued a provisional driver license. For the first YEAR of having a provisional license, you must be accompanied and supervised by a licensed parent, guardian or other licensed driver 25 years of age or older, or by a licensed or certified driving instructor when you:
- Transport passengers under 20 years of age at any time, for the first twelve months. (Siblings with note of parent permission in car is okay)
- Drive between 11 pm and 5 am for the first twelve months.
This means that for the first year of having a provisional driver’s license, you cannot give anyone under 20 years old a ride unless it is your sibling or you have a licensed parent, a guardian, or other adult 25 years old or older in the car with you.
An exception for driving someone to and from school only is possible with parent and principal of school permission.
You are also not allowed to drive between 11 pm and 5 am during your first year after getting your license unless you have a licensed parent, a guardian or other adult 25 years old or older in the car with you.
If a driver with a provisional license is violating these laws and has an accident, by law parents are held responsible.
A 30-day restriction will be placed on the teen’s license if he or she receives two or more points for violations in one year. Three or more points nets a teen a six-month suspension and a one-year probation. If the teen violates probation, the suspension can extend beyond his or her 18th birthday. Additionally, community service hours or fines will be imposed for violating certain provisions.

SLVHS Football playing in Under Armour Brothers in Arms Classic
SLV High School varsity football is honored to play in the Brothers in Arms Classic in Orange County on September 16.
The Brothers In Arms Foundation was created to honor the legacies of fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines, in coordination with their families, through community outreach and related activities, such as the Brothers in Arms Classic High School Football events.
SLV Players, Coaches, and Cheerleaders will be part of a full day of games featuring nationally ranked-high school teams. We will be playing Layton Christian Academy of Utah in the first game of the day with an 8:15 am kickoff at Mission Viejo High School. Yes, that is correct: Saturday morning football for breakfast!
Come join us in a unique event and a positive experience for a worthy cause. We would love to have you as many of you as possible down there cheering for us!
If you can’t make it down to Orange County for the SLV-Layton Christian football game, you can watch the live stream on the game online on the NFHS Network:
Change in SLVHS Bell Schedule for this Year
This year, both SLV High School and SLV Middle School will move to Early Release Days on Mondays instead of Late Start Days. This means the start time for the High School will be at 7:55 every day. Most Mondays will still be shortened days, with an Early Release time of 2:01 pm. Zero period will still begin at 7:00 am each day.
Chromebook Loaner Policy
San Lorenzo Unified School District no longer gives daily loaners of chromebooks to students on a regular basis. Students without a device instead may “check out” a device from the school district for the entire year.
Much like the textbooks students check out, they can go home with the student each night to be used for homework, and the student is responsible for returning the chromebook at the end of the end of the year.
Students who wish to check out a loaner Chromebook for the year may do so at the library on Cougar Day when they get their textbooks.
Below are some helpful links and contact information for SLV High School students and parents:

Phone: (831) 335-4425
