Principal's Message

from Jeff Calden



A notice from the Santa Cruz County Office of Education regarding the Coronavirus is attached to this email.

I have highlighted some tips on the second page that we went over with all students this morning.

Our District Office is also coordinating with our school sites to increase the amount and levels of cleaning happening at school each day. 

Right now, being educated about what we should and should not be doing is the most important way we can help.


Below are the two links I had in this newsletter last week for further information.

sos signs of suicide prevention program

Signs of Suicide Prevention presentations in SLVHS classes this March


SLVHS Families,


New California Assembly Bill 2246 now requires all schools that serve students grades 7-12 to provide suicide prevention curriculum. At SLVHS, our district Mental Health Counselors, School Psychologists, School Counselors, and Behaviorists will be presenting the district-adopted SOS Signs of Suicide as part of our district’s Suicide Prevention Plan. This evidence-based curriculum is designed to help staff and students recognize the potential signs of suicide that students may exhibit. 


These presentations will be done with sophomores, juniors, and seniors during 4th period on Wednesday, March 18th

Freshmen will have their presentations done in the MPR in their PE classes on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 24th and 25th.


Attached is a Parent Newsletter on Signs of Suicide and an Opt Out form if you DO NOT want your student to participate in the presentation.


The completed Opt Out form should be signed and returned to the SLVHS main office by Wednesday, March 11 at 3:00 pm if you do not want your student to participate.

scent free zone

This is a reminder that San Lorenzo Valley Unified School District policy, as set by the Board of Trustees, declares that we are a fragrant-neutral district. As we begin to have our drama performances and other site-based activities and meetings, please take care to follow the policies below for the sake of the students and members of our community who are highly allergic to fragrances and scents.

The SLVUSD Board of Trustees adopted a California School Board Association policy to make all district classrooms and offices fragrant neutral. SLVHS has parents, students, and community members with respiratory issues who can have negative reactions to fragrances. Please take care to follow the policy while on campus.  

Staff and students shall refrain from bringing furred or feathered animals, stuffed toys that may collect dust mites, scented candles, incense or air fresheners and from using perfume or cologne, scented hair spray, nail polish or nail polish remover that are not fragrance-free in classrooms or other enclosed areas or buildings. 



The Community Opportunity Link is provided as a courtesy for parents and students by the San Lorenzo Valley Unified School District to receive information of current local events and other student opportunities. These opportunities range from scouting, sports, arts/drama, local community events, as well as other parent resources. In an effort to reduce paper, flyers will not be sent home to students; all approved flyers will be posted to this District-created website.
