Get your tickets for Clue (High School Edition): Stay-at-Home Edition, an online play directed by SLVHS seniors Esperanza Clark and Lennon Lilienthal-WynnClue is a hilarious comedy-meets-murder mystery, based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was inspired by the classic Hasbro board game. The story begins at an out-of-the-way mansion, where six mysterious guests assemble for an unusual dinner party where murder and blackmail ensue. When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by the Wadsworth – the butler, Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. Clue is the comedy detective story that will leave both cult-fans and newcomers in stitches as they try to figure out…WHO did it, WHERE, and with WHAT! 

This special Stay-at-Home edition of Clue will be performed live online; audiences can purchase a ticket and watch at home on a computer, tablet or smart TV.

teacher afternoon support

Afternoon Support Blocks Are Up and Running: Need Help with School? Your Teachers are Here for You!

Our online Afternoon Support Blocks, run by our high school teachers, meet each week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Teachers will assign students who can then get support during the school day. Students can also email teachers to request time to meet for help.

Teachers will be sending email invitations out to assign afternoon class support sessions.

This is an excellent opportunity for students to work with their own teachers to get support. 

A reminder that School is actually in session each day from 8:30 to 3:00 pm. 

We waited until the first month of classes were complete to begin our afternoon support schedule.     


Afternoon blocks will only run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1:15 to 2:00 pm and 2:15 to 3:00 pm

Monday Special Schedule will still run on Mondays and students will still have Friday afternoons free.  

Detailed information below. 


This time is set aside DURING THE SCHOOL DAY for teachers to be able to work with small groups of students who need support in that teacher's class.










1:15 - 2:00

Open Block (Social Studies)

Open Block (Science)

Open Block (Math)

2:15 - 3:00

Open Block (World Lang)

Open Block (VAPA/Electives)

Open Block (English)


When needed, students will be assigned to come to one or more afternoon support blocks each week.  Some days or weeks, students may not be assigned any sessions, but may still contact a teacher to schedule a drop-in time if they have questions or need some help. These blocks are an extension of a student's time in that teacher's class.  If needed, it is part of that class and whether or not you show up could affect your grade positively or negatively.

every day counts!


The state of California is requiring all schools to take attendance each day.

Teachers will be taking attendance in Powerschool every period, every day.  

We will also have our 1st period classes meet for a short time on Monday mornings in a Monday Homeroom Class to take attendance and go over important announcements and/or information.  Accessing class each period, each day is the first way for students to be successful.
