Summer Reading Club
Elk Valley students received a summer reading packet/list the last week of school.  Reading is the best way to avoid summer regression, but more importantly it is one of the most positive experiences your child can have, independently, or with you.  Please encourage your child to read and record (on the reading list) a minimum of ten books over the summer months.  Return the reading list to school by September 6th to join the club! 

Homeroom Assignments for Next Year

To find out your child's teacher for next year, watch for a letter mailed to your home address in mid-August.

Transportation/Dismissal Schedules:
Student Transportation of America (busing company) will mail a letter to your home address in August.  The dismissal plan your child had at the end of this school year (bus rider, car rider, walker, babysitter) will be the plan we follow for next year.  If you need to make a change, you MUST come to the Elk Valley school office before August 11th and complete a Transportation Change Request Form.  Thank you.

If you have an address, phone number or email address change over the summer break, please contact the school office at 774-5602 as soon as possible.
