Welcome to the Stockbridge Valley Elementary Office News Page!
Important Notice for Parents 
In the interest of the safety of our students, no requests for a change in transportation will be allowed after 1:45 pm.
Many of our students have specials late in  the afternoon and most of our classes go outside for recess at the end of the day. It is not always possible to get in touch with students and/or teachers at the end of the day to communicate these requests, resulting in confusion for your child.
If your child regularly rides the bus home and you would like to pick them up at school, you should send a note to school with your child. If there is an emergency and you need to make a change in your child's transportation, please call the office to make the change before 1:45 pm.
If it is not possible to make the change with the school by 1:45, you will need to make arrangements for someone to get your child off the bus at their regular stop.
Should you need to call the school to make a change, please call the elementary office at 315-495-4550. All changes in transportation, bus change requests and pick-up information must go through the office. In the event of an emergency, the elementary office tracks the information as to where and who students are being released to.
These guidelines are all in the interest of the safety of our students, and it is imperative that we adhere to the guidelines.
Kindergarten Registration
Kindergarten registration took place in the elementary office March 1st - 3rd. If you were unable to register your child during this time, it is important that you do so ASAP.
If you have a child that will be five years old on or before December 1, 2017, they are eligible to attend Kindergarten. Registration packets are available in the elementary office. In addition to the packet you will need a copy of your child's birth certificate, immunization record, and proof of residency.
Spring Safety
We're all happy that Spring has finally arrived; please keep these things in mind when getting ready for school. We all want our students to be safe and enjoy the spring weather. Please do not send your child to school in any of the following:
  • Spaghetti Strap Shirts 
  • Flip Flops 
  • High Heels 
Sandals are fine, as long as there is a strap on  the back. Sandals without straps tend to fall off on the stairs and on the playground, causing injuries to students' feet. If you would like to have a spare pair of sneakers at school, you can send them in with your child to keep in their locker. Thank you for your support in keeping our children safe. Enjoy this beautiful weather!
