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.
Passes for the 2018 - 2019 school year go on sale on April 23, 2018 at 7:00 AM and will be sold on a first come, first served basis. The price for a High School Bus Pass is $335.

Wednesday, August 15th
California High School Theater
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.

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: email@example.com for any questions or suggestions. They also accept corporate matching funds. Thank you for your support.

NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED!
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 have weeks 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.

- May 1st is National Commitment Day. You must commit to a college no later than May 1st and each college may have a different ‘time stamp’ for when this must be completed (ie west coast/east coast?). You may only “commit” to one college, but you may remain on multiple wait lists!
- Let colleges know if you will NOT be attending and thank them. Some colleges have a link you can click on to decline. For others, you can simply email their admissions department and let them know.
Please update your Naviance Portals with admission and commitment decisions: As you receive college notifications, please update your Colleges I’m Applying to List with admission and decision status.
CSU Bound: CSU’s require students meet a guideline for their placement into Math and English. Some students may be exempt based on SAT/ACT scores, CAASPP scores, and/or based on SRVHS coursework. If a CSU has indicated that you need to complete this requirement, follow up accordingly.
Wait Lists: Some colleges use wait lists as part of their enrollment strategy. Know that you should accept an offer of admission to another college by May 1st and then if you are offered a space at your wait listed college, you may then withdraw your commitment to the first college and deposit at your waitlist school.
