February is School of Choice month!

 

Almost all of our Simi Valley Schools are considered Schools of Choice. (The standing exceptions to School of Choice are Hollow Hills Elementary and Vista Elementary, which are fundamental schools, and Santa Susana High School which is a magnet school.) In some years, schools that are filled to capacity may be closed to School of Choice, but for the 2018-2019 school year, all of our schools except those listed as standing exceptions are able to accept School of Choice applicants. As long as the school is not filled to its capacity with existing students and incoming neighborhood students, students living outside the neighborhood boundaries of a school may apply to enroll in that school, and the school may accept these students until the school is filled to capacity. If there are more applications than there are available spots for interested students, the school will conduct a random lottery to select the number of students they are able to accept.

  • Sinaloa Middle School will be a holding a "Parent Information Night" on Tuesday, January 30th at 6:00 p.m. 
  • Sinaloa campus tours will be every Thursday in January and February at 9:00 a.m.
  • Open House & Saber Spotlight will be Thursday, February 22 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
  • Deadline to apply is Wednesday, February 28, 2018.

 

Please come to one of these events and see all of the wonderful things happening at Sinaloa Middle School, a California Gold Ribbon School and California School to Watch!

Good evening Simi Valley Schools Families:

We’ve been closely monitoring the air quality in our district and know there are concerns about the smoke currently seen in the city. The air quality forecast for tomorrow shows a northwest wind advisory in Ventura County, and the Ventura County Air Pollution District shows Simi Valley is in the “good” range tomorrow for ozone and particulates because of the expected winds.

All schools will be open tomorrow, December 15.

If smoke does remain in the area, all schools will follow our inclement weather procedures and keep the students indoors as much as possible. We will continue to monitor the weather quality and keep you informed of any changes that might be made to the school schedule.

Please be assured that the safety and well-being of our students and staff is our top priority. 

Thank you.
Dr. Jason Peplinski
Superintendent

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM SVUSD:
Dear Simi Valley Schools Families:

As of now, we are still planning on all schools being open tomorrow, Thursday, December 7.

We are working closely with the city of Simi Valley, the Police Department and many other agencies as we all monitor the progress of fire events in our region. As of right now, we have been told that the Rye Fire (Santa Clarita) is not likely to cause us problems. The fire services did an excellent job of suppressing the fire line and directing it in a way that they believe is now manageable. But, we have been told that the winds are expected to return late this afternoon and continue on through tomorrow, and that they are supposed to be even stronger than what we've seen so far. This could create new problems with air quality or fires, so we will continue to monitor and assess the risks to students and staff.

As we did yesterday, we will continue to advise you on all possible channels about any changes to our plans to open schools tomorrow. Please keep checking your email, social media, and district app notifications for information.

Thank you.
Dr. Jason Peplinski
Superintendent

IMPORTANT MESSAGE:


Dear Simi Schools Families:

 

After careful consideration of the poor air quality and the potential fire dangers from neighboring events, ALL of our campuses and offices will be closed tomorrow. We know that this is a large decision and may cause inconvenience for some families. Thank you for your patience and support while we gathered the information needed to make this decision.

 

Please know that there will be NO personnel at any school site or at the District Office. Also, all before- and after-school programs and extracurricular events are also canceled.

 

We fully expect to resume school as normal on Thursday morning.

 

We will continue to keep everyone informed.

Thank you again and please stay safe.
