State law gives families the option to transfer to a different school when there is space available. When schools have space, families can choose to transfer to another school within a district (intradistrict transfers) or to transfer to a school in another district (interdistrict transfers).


SRVUSD has moved up its intradistrict open enrollment window for elementary families. The open enrollment window for elementary schools is now open and closes on April 6, 2018. Families can find the link to the online intradistrict transfer request form and information about SRVUSD’s open enrollment/intradistrict transfer process at


SRVUSD students will continue to have placement priority in our schools. However, after we place our resident students at their school of choice, because we now have space available, California law requires that we allow students from outside the district to apply to attend our schools (interdistrict transfers). Interdistrict transfers will only be accepted if there is space available. Students from outside the district must maintain acceptable academic performance, attendance and behavior. SRVUSD anticipates openings for interdistrict transfers students at nearly all SRVUSD schools.

This AMAZING conference is an opportunity for middle school teens to spend the day with high school leaders who believe in themselves and making healthy choices and decisions such as being drug, alcohol, and tobacco free. But this conference is about so much more than drug and alcohol prevention it's about leadership, self-confidence and empowering young people to make positive choices that impact their future.


This fun filled all day event, consists of games, team building activities, inspirational speakers, workshops, small groups sessions, and so much more all focusing on helping teens to make positive choices in their lives. The days ends with an awesome DJ and dance!


We look forward to inspiring your teen at this amazing conference. This conference will no doubt sell out, so make sure you register early and get the early bird discount.


Please pass this info on to your child's friends. We wouldn't want them to miss out on this life changing experience!

SRVUSD recognizes that some students want to challenge themselves academically beyond the classroom.  Course advancement is one opportunity available for our students.  Students may enroll in an approved math, science, or world language (Spanish, French, or Chinese) course of study outside of SRVUSD that may lead to course advancement.  We also recognize that advancement is not for all students.  Families must determine if their student(s) can manage the fast pace curriculum delivery. 


Update:  SRVUSD is making many changes regarding math advancement (different than the past).  Please see the district website below for the most accurate information and deadlines:


Principal's Message


Principal's Message

March 2018
As we begin the month of March, there is one thing on my mind and that is student safety.  I have yet to address the shooting in Florida with all of you and that is because I’m still trying to wrap my head around the gravity of what the Parkland community is facing.  As parents, you need to be assured that SRVUSD, and Gale Ranch in particular, have done everything necessary to keep your child(ren) safe while they’re in our care.  As educators, we take this responsibility to heart—I have had conversations with many of the GRMS staff and we are heartbroken that we, our students and all of you need to have conversations around this topic.  I would like to share with you what I shared with staff at our last meeting.  The following information made me feel somewhat better and I hope it will do the same for you.  The gun laws in California differ vastly from different states, especially those in Florida.  Here is a short list of differences:

Assault weapon ban: California (yes) Florida (no)
10-round magazine limit: California (yes) Florida (no)
All gun sales through licensed dealer: California (yes) Florida (no)
Gun violence restraining order: California (yes) Florida (no)
Armed and Prohibited Persons System to disarm convicted criminals, mentally ill: California (yes) Florida (no)


Other information that was helpful to me are the school shooting statistics in California: Since 2013 there have been 12 shootings that have occurred on school grounds.  Some of these occurred after hours and not when students were present.  None of these shootings included an AR-15 type assault rifle and no students have been killed. Two students have been injured with guns and one teacher was wounded during a robbery that occurred at night.

As a school site, we have reviewed, modified and practiced our lockdown drills.  Changes include having police presence for every unplanned alarm that goes off and a new communication tool between administration and teachers via the Remind App.  Our Site Safety Plan is reviewed each year and the new plan will be presented at our next School Site Council, where we will seek an approval from all stakeholders.

I encourage all parents and guardians to have conversations with your children regarding the devastating events around the shootings in our country.  I firmly believe that half of this issue needs to be addressed at the lowest level, in which we assist our students who struggle emotionally.  With that being said, it is imperative that we all take care of each other—please discuss with your children the avenues to let an adult know if one of their friends is struggling with life’s circumstances.  They can tell you, tell a teacher, come to the office and speak with a counselor or take advantage of our “Student Incident Report” that you can find on our website.  No school can ever be fully prepared for an event such as the one in Florida, but I do believe that we have taken all necessary precautions to ensure that all of our students feel safe at school.

If your child is feeling otherwise, please don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our counselors.
