November 4, 2020 Update

Due to an increasing number of staff and students either testing positive, experiencing symptoms, or being exposed to COVID, Smoky Valley High School and Smoky Valley Middle School will begin Remote Learning tomorrow (November 5).

Because Soderstrom Elementary has already begun the Remote Learning model, this means all students PreK - 12th grade will continue with learning at home for two weeks, and will return to regular face-to-face instruction back in the building on Wednesday, Nov. 18th.

Also at this time, all after school activities and practices are being put on hold until Monday, November 16.

Informational meetings were conducted for parents on Zoom. The recordings of the meetings are available here:

The USDA is offering lunch and breakfast free of charge to SVHS, SVMS, and SES students. Because these buildings are in a Remote Learning model, parents need to signup for and pick up these meals for their students.

If you'd like to reserve and pickup meals for your child, please sign up using this link before 9:00 am: 

11/9-11/17 Meal Pickup Request Form (This is an updated form, so please fill it out, even if you filled one out for the week of 11/4-11/6)

Meal pickup will be daily from 11:30 am to 12:00 pm. The pickup location for SES students will be at Soderstrom Elementary while meal pickup for both Smoky Valley Middle and High School students will be in front of the High School on Viking Blvd.
