SRVHS Weekly Bulletin




What’s CAASPP?  Why is it important? What do the scores mean for my student?

CAASPP is the new state academic testing program. CAASPP is a system intended to provide information that can be used to monitor student progress and ensure that all students leave high school ready for college and career. The CAASPP includes computer-adaptive tests in English–language arts and mathematics as well as paper-based tests for science.


Join us to learn more about the upcoming CAASPP testing at SRVHS from our Principal, Jason Krolikowski at our March 1st PTSA meeting at 7:00 p.m. in the Library.


CAASPP testing will be starting mid-March.  Learn about the history of CAASPP and how SRVHS is working to improve our CAASPP scores and what that means for your student.

Hope to see you there!

Many in the community have asked for updates about Kevin Madsen, a 2017 graduate who has been fighting cancer for the past 4 years. The Madsen Family has been deeply touched by the outpouring of support from our community. Last October they found out that Kevin's cancer has spread. A tumor was found behind his bladder. Kevin is done with conventional chemo and had been waiting for a trial to open so he can have a shot. Last week, he started one at UCSF. We are very hopeful and optimistic, as is Kevin. He is strong and willing to do what it takes. If you want to stay updated on his progress or ways you can help the family use this link:
