In an effort to conserve paper and allow for easier accessibility, we will be emailing you Bear Tracks on the 1st of every month. No print version will be created. If you don't have an email address or regular access to the internet, please visit the Vine Hill office for a printed version of the newsletter.

Submission of school-related news is welcome; if space allows and at the discretion of the principal, Bear Tracks publicizes events sponsored by non-profit entities within the local area. A non-profit taxpayer ID number must be submitted along with the press release (80 words maximum).

Please email your article to:

Bear Tracks is published on the last or first school day of the month and sent out via email. A print version is available in the school office for families who do not have internet access.

All submissions must be received on the 25th of the month prior to publication, unless noted. They should be no longer than 100 words and have a short snappy headline.

Email applications, internet security software and spam blockers make it increasingly difficult for our emails to successfully reach your inbox. Our emails are sent to a large distribution list and are often considered to be junk mail.  In an effort to prevent our emails falling into your Junk Mail or Bulk Mail folders please add the below email addresses to the 'safe list' in your Spam blocking, internet security software, or email application:

If you use Microsoft Outlook to read email you can 'Create a Rule' using the "Rules and Alert" feature from the “Tools Menu” and put our emails in the folder of your choice.

During the school year if your email changes or your child changes school simply use the "Update Profile/Email Address" link that is at the bottom of every email sent out.

Do NOT use the Safe Unsubscribe link unless you have moved out of the Scotts Valley Union School District. This email service is used by the school district to communicate with parents. Unsubscribing from the VHS mailings will remove you from all SVUSD email distribution lists.

If you have questions, need help or want to confirm that you're on the email list, please email Daryl Spitzer.
