IMPORTANT NEWS AND NOTICES
Dear Simi Valley Schools Community:
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!
We’re still working hard. Moving forward into this new school year, some of the new things you will find are:
Improving student achievement and ensuring that every member of our staff continues to provide the best customer service possible to our families remain our top priorities. We believe that every child coming through our doors can and will reach their highest potential. From our highly qualified teachers to our nurturing and compassionate counselors, administrators and support professionals, we create an environment of inclusion and instill a love for learning. Our doors are open to every child; that’s our promise to you.
Have a wonderful school year.

NEW: HALF-YEAR TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN
If your child will turn five years old between Dec. 2, 2016 and Jan. 10, 2017, we have a special program just for you. Our Half-Year Transitional Kindergarten enables your child to become a part of a JK/TK classroom beginning Jan. 10, 2017 (second semester) until the end of the school year. These students will go into traditional kindergarten in the 2017-2018 school year. JK/TK classes are full-day and taught by fully credentialed teachers specializing in Early Childhood Development. Students receive hands-on, age-appropriate instruction, and are exposed to basic foundational skills in core academics, the arts and technology. These programs are free to Simi Valley residents. For more information, contact the Educational Services Department at (805) 306-4500, extension 4207. Or email to email@example.com.
KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATIONS DUE NOW!
If you haven't turned in your applications for either your neighborhood school or your School of Choice for your child's upcoming Kindergarten year, now is the time. All of our 18 elementary schools welcome tours and private meetings beginning in August. Questions? Contact the Educational Services Department at the District office at (805) 306-4500 ext. 4207. Or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about our fabulous Kindergarten programs, go HERE. Thank you!
