The TRAFFIX bus program is entering its 9th year of service, providing safe, convenient and affordable transportation for students. The program has helped reduce the number of vehicle trips during school pick-ups and drop-offs and significantly reduces the carbon footprint in Danville and San Ramon every year.

Parents are saving time and money and kids love riding the bus. This helps your student build confidence and independence while doing a great service to our community in getting cars off the road during rush hour.

For the 2018 – 2019 School Year, the SR-21 bus will serve San Ramon Valley High School.

You can look at the SR-21 route here.

We’ve added more Start Smart classes!


Wednesday, August 15th

California High School Theater

Register HERE


This Start Smart class is part of the San Ramon Valley’s Street Smarts program and is a partnership between CHP, Street Smarts, and the San Ramon Valley Unified School District (SRVUSD). SRVUSD students AND their parent/guardian MUST attend a CHP Start Smart class in order to be eligible for a parking permit.

Start Smart is a FREE two hour highly impactful interactive traffic safety class designed for drivers or soon to be drivers 15-19 years of age and their parents to discuss the serious laws, obligations, responsibilities, and family expectations that are part of driving a vehicle. Despite safer vehicles, better roads, and countless driving programs, the numbers of young drivers who have lost their lives due to traffic collisions have remained fairly constant. However, these deaths and injuries can be substantially reduced by eliminating high-risk behaviors.

Upon attending the class, students will receive a certificate of completion and it’s recommended that students hold on to this certificate.



For more information, please visit

Dear SRVHS Families,


We have recently experienced a glitch in our SRVHS PTSA opt-in mailing list.  In short, across the period of a few days, many current subscribers were unintentionally unsubscribed en masse. You did nothing wrong if you received a notice from the SRVHS eNews Communication List.  We have found a solution to this issue, but it does require you to opt back in. Unfortunately, due to the nature of an "opt-in" mailing list, you must subscribe personally, regardless of whether you were unsubscribed intentionally or not.  Please click here to check your subscription, or re-subscribe if necessary.


We are using this particular form of communication extensively at this time of the school year since there are so many things happening on and around SRV as the school year comes to a close. SOME of the types of information you might expect to see coming from this source are as follows, but not limited to:


Graduation Information


Grad Night Information: as you might expect, the bulk of this info is arriving in your inboxes now! 


"Class of (2018, 19, 20, 21, 22)


"News: Parent Reps from each individual Class to inform you of information specific to your grade only.  


Academic Information


Counseling/Career Center Information


This list goes on!  


Please take a moment and click here to re-subscribe or double check that you are already subscribed. I apologize for the inconvenience, but we do not want you to miss out on any pertinent SRVHS updates! 

Go Wolves!


Parent Volunteers Needed to Help with Textbook Returns

Parents please use this Signup Genius link if you can help our Textbook Clerk, Linda Ficenec, with textbook returns during Finals Week.  The Textbook Office is very busy during this time and your help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!


Every year at this time we ask our parent community to “pay it forward” and volunteer to make grad night and graduation a memorable experience for our graduating seniors and their families. Part of what makes SRVHS so special is our community spirit and heart.  If you have had or will have a graduating senior from SRV, you know how important this is.  Keeping our kids safe on grad night is a long-standing tradition, and it’s a gift we give our kids and each other. We can’t do it without all of you.


Please sign up to help us make grad night safe and graduation memorable by giving the gift of your time to keep our tradition going.  Last but not least, thank you for being the most supportive and inclusive parent community.  Let’s have fun and do this together!


With Gratitude,


Shelley Clark and Lisa Hostelly,

San Ramon High Academic Boosters has launched the 2018 spring fundraising campaign.  It is our hope that strong support during this campaign will assist us in planning the school’s master schedule for the fall.


Why should you donate? 

Academic Boosters is our school “Ed Fund”.  It is the only group on campus that adds extra sections or class periods to the master schedule.   This important benefit is unique to our school, because it helps us reduce class size and allows us to offer a variety of electives that are not otherwise covered by state or local funding.  Every dollar raised here, stays here at SRV.  Last year Academic Boosters were able to give me 16 extra class sections to add to the schedule.  This year they would like to fund 18 sections, but they can’t do it without your support.


While the bulk of the Academic Booster budget (80%) goes toward adding extra sections, the remainder of the budget supports important programs such as:  College and Career Center staffing, after school library hours, free tutoring labs, SAT/ACT test prep, individual scholarships and club grants at SRV.


Please help us plan for the 2018 academic year by donating now.    Our school is only as strong as the community that supports us. 

Suggested per student donation is $495.  Online donation link can be found here:


DONATE NOW TO SRV ED FUND or by sending a check (preferred) to:

SRVHS Academic Boosters

P.O. Box 1004 

Danville CA 94526 


You may email them at:  for any questions or suggestions.  They also accept corporate matching funds.  Thank you for your support.





Preparations for Grad Night 2018 is in full swing!  Drop by our work site at 12647 Alcosta Blvd., Bishop Ranch 15, Suite 100, San Ramon to see our progress.  There are still a few areas that we need help from you to fill.  As they say, “Many hands make light work.”  Many of these do not require a large time commitment.  We only less than one week left to create the most memorable grad night!

Here are the areas we could use your assistance:

Outdoor Activities Area (Design):  Design the area where our kids play games and outdoor activities during the evening.  Our incredible design chairs already have some great ideas for this project.  Just need a fun loving parent to implement them.

Massage Room (Design):  Create the indoor oasis for our students to relax and get a massage after a hard day at graduation.  Again, work with our amazing design chairs to bring their design to life.

Casino (Activities):  Work with one of our most experienced parents at casino activities to create the perfect poker tournament and casino activities for our kid card sharks on their special evening. 

Food Committee (Hospitality): Lend a hand to our great food chair to help organize the food donations and logistics to give our kids a night of incredible cuisine.

Donations/Prizes (Admin): Our donation and prize chairs need help with securing and choosing prizes for the raffles, poker tournament and gift bags.  Let’s give the kids some things to take with them to remember this special evening.

Electrical/Technology (Design): Someone to interface with our AV company to make sure all things electrical are connected properly, and someone with knowledge of technology to help with the movie theater, dance room and gaming rooms

Check out the Sign-Up Genius to see where your friends are volunteering!:
