More than 750 handwritten cards and letters are heading to the U.S. Post Office this afternoon in support of our State Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. McCormick's request to participate in the annual Holiday Cards for Our Military Challenge. Our students designed amazing cards and messages, and even our CTE Welding class participated! From K thru 12th grade, this writing project was meaningful and memorable. Thank you SV teachers and students! #INthistogether

We are excited to announce that, beginning tomorrow, South Vermillion will be participating in the New USDA Waiver that allows ALL students, currently enrolled in our corporation, meals at no charge! This includes breakfast and lunch each school day. Any adult meals, extras or ala carte items will still be your responsibility. We have been informed that this USDA program is set to expire on December 31st or if we receive notice that funding for the program is no longer available, whichever comes first. This program is retroactive to the first student day, August 10th. Meals purchased from this date forward will be credited back to your child’s lunch account. I’D LIKE TO ENCOURAGE OUR VIRTUAL STUDENTS TO PARTICIPATE, AS WELL. If you are interested in picking up meals for your virtual student, please contact your child’s school and ask to speak with the cafeteria manager for ordering and pick up options. In the event that your child’s school should close for eLearning, we will continue to provide two “grab and go” meals each school day. In addition to this exciting news, I'd like to remind you that applications for state assistance are required each school year for those who qualify. If your student receives free or reduced meals and textbook assistance you are still required to complete an application for this school year. If you have not yet done so, please submit a web application through Harmony or contact your child’s school for a paper copy. We hope you will encourage your students to eat a nutritious breakfast and lunch at school every day! Stay Healthy!

You will receive and email later today, tonight, or at the latest tomorrow morning that says you are enrolled . From there, you can log in and get started.

Elementary Virtual School students and parents...you should expect later today, tonight or in the morning that you have been enrolled in Exact Path. Even if you do not receive an email telling you about the enrollment you should login in by tomorrow morning and the courses should be in there. The Exact Path assessments do start at a high level, but the assessment quickly reduces down to the elementary level. This is to find the true gaps in the student's math and reading levels. If they find a question too difficult, just move on to the next question. You should only work on it for 20 -30 minutes at a time, take a break and then come back to it. I would encourage the parents to be with the child but not help them with the questions, we want to find their gaps, if any. We want parents to encourage the students, especially the young ones, who might get worried over the questions that are too hard. This not for a grade so they don’t need to worry, just do their best. We have placed a Parent Guide for this on our website in the Virtual School link.
