To promote National Library Week (April 13-19), the Simi Valley Public Library has asked for our school's help.  They would like all students, parents and staff who do not currently have a library card (the old Ventura County card is no longer valid at the new library), to fill out an application and apply for a new card.  These cards are FREE.  To make this process easier, bring completed/signed application to Mrs. Lairsey, and she will have your card delivered to our school.  The deadline to return these applications to Mrs. Lairsey is Friday, April 11.  Applications can be found on line at www.simivalleylibrary.org., you may go directly to the library and fill one out there, or you may pick one up from Mrs. Lairsey at your Hillside Library. 

Each student who returns an application or shows Mrs. Lairsey their library card the week of April 14-April 17 will receive a colorful bracelet which promotes reading, and will also be entered in a drawing and have a chance to win one of several posters.

The Simi Valley Public Library can be a great eduational source for our students.  Go on line to check out their catalog and electronic resources.

We'd like to give the parents out there some clarification on completing the Parents' Rights online. Most of you have the hang of it, but we realize there are some questions! Follow the steps below and you will be able to complete the Parent & Student Acceptable Use Policies with ease!

1. Please click on the button at right "Parent's Right's AUP Online Form"

2. When the form comes up, make sure to fill out ALL the fields. If you have multiple children at multiple schools, you will need to repeat this process for each child at each school they attend.

3. When you get to the last page of the form, please print that page FIRST, then sign it and return THAT PAGE ONLY to your child's school.

4. Click the SUBMIT button.

5. Repeat this process with your child or children so they can complete their Student AUP.  Click the button at right "Student AUP Online Form" .

Each household will be submitting a total of TWO forms for EACH child.

We understand this process is new and there are going to be some growing pains with it, but the schools and the district office are here to support parents in completing this process.

Please email our webmaster if you need assistance.
