For each school-aged child in your household, please complete, sign, date, and return the survey to your child's school. If sections 1 and 2 of the survey do not apply to you, just check the box in Section 3.  All forms must be signed, dated, and returned by October 26. All results are CONFIDENTIAL.

Salad Bar is Coming to SVES!

We are excited to announce that Sunrise Valley is going to the next level of providing our students and staff with a healthier lunch!

Beginning on October 24th, we will be implementing the “Real Food for Kids” Salad Bar.

Please review the October and November  salad bar lunch menu describing the vegetables, fruits, protein and grains available on the salad bar, as well as the students’ hot entrée choice. All students will select their fruits and vegetables for lunch from the salad bar, and then they may complete their lunch by choosing either the salad bar protein and grains or the hot entrée listed on the menu for that day. Students will “practice” salad bar etiquette and new procedures for the lunch line before the salad bar opens. We are excited that our students will have so many fresh fruits and vegetables to choose from each day and look forward to joining many other FCPS schools that have had the opportunity to implement the salad bar successfully this school year!

Watch this short video to learn more about the FCPS Salad Bars.

Digital Citizenship Week : October 15th – 19th!

This year’s focus is on Building a Culture of Shared Responsibility. Each day during the week, schools and parents/caregivers can take simple steps to get in sync and partner together to educate and support students with digital life.

You’ll find materials for home during Digital Citizenship week on the SVES website. Monday through Wednesday offers complementary activities and conversations that can begin at school and extend into the home. On Thursday and Friday, instructional staff and parents are provided the same simple strategies that can be used at home and at school to support students. A common message from trusted adults has a big impact on kids.

We hope Digital Citizenship Week will spark some educationally valuable conversations that can be promoted and supported all year long, by both parents and teaching staff.

Drop Off & Pick Up

Thank you for  your support throughout this first two weeks of school! In order to support our  safe environment for our students staff and families, please review the following safety procedures for arrival and dismissal: 

  • Please do not park in the lower parking lot to drop off or pick up students. Load and unload in the Kiss & Ride area only. This will help in getting our buses in and out in time in a safe and orderly fashion.  

  • In Kiss & Ride lane, load and unload from the passenger side of the car only. 

  • Remain in the driver’s seat.  (Safety patrols can assist with car doors.) 

  • Do not pass other cars that are loading, unloading or waiting to load or unload. 

  • Do not park in the Kiss & Ride lane and leave your car unattended. 

  • Please stay off of cell phones while entering and exiting the Kiss & Ride area.  
  • For pick up: please make sure that you have your window nameplate (students first and last name and teacher name) in the passenger side window of your car.

Thank you!

Welcome to the First Day of School!

We are excited to start the school year and cannot wait to see our students on Tuesday!

Students may arrive on campus at 8:55. 

On the first day, students and parents may proceed directly to the classrooms.  Our school day will start promptly at 9:20, and at this time any parents remaining will need to say their good byes so the school day may start. 

On Tuesday, our regular procedures will begin. 

8:55 - Students may arrive and proceed to cafeteria.

9:10 - First bell and students proceed to classroom.

9:20 - School day starts and if students are not already in the classroom at this time, they are considered tardy.

4:05 - Dismissal.

4:15 - School bus scheduled departure.

All parents/visitors must check in at the office.  Visits to teachers/staff need to be pre-arranged and then confirmed by office staff upon arrival. 

Arrival and Dismissal

Please use this link to learn about Sunrise Valley arrival and dismissal procedures.

The lower parking lot is not available for drop off and pick up.  The kiss and ride loop (upper parking lot) is to be used. 

It is very important for all of our students and families to follow these procedures as they are the safest and also the most efficient. 

Please promote your child's safety and be considerate to school neighbors, bus drivers, school staff  and all our Sunrise Valley families by complying with these procedures.

Boo- Hoo Breakfast

Our PTA invites all our kindergarten and new parents to join them in the cafeteria at 9:20  They will have coffee and treats.  This is a great opportunity to meet other parents at SVES.  This is also a good time to join the PTA if you are not a member!
