Late Start
Dear Soaring Heights Families,

As we continue to move forward with momentum throughout this school year, the vision for excellence remains in the forefront of our daily implementations. Within the classroom setting we see high academic standards and instruction, purposeful school community and meaningful collaboration and reflection. Spring Break is quickly approaching and we want to highlight the importance of student engagement in their daily learning progression. We thank you for your continued support and partnership.

We have a few important dates approaching
We want to highly encourage our community to take part in talking to children about race speaker series (see the flyer below) as we continue to strive to ensure all members of our community feel welcomed and valued. 

Project Launch Registration is due by March 12th. Please see the flyer below for additional information. We strongly recommend parents to sign up for this summer educational opportunity, which will support any holes or gaps in academic learning. 

The PTO is hosting a Talent Show in March. Talent Show Video Submissions are due Friday, February 26th. 

We are pleased to announce we have a Corner Captain that is located at the light by County Rd 5. and Colliers Pkwy. The Corner Captain assists students with crossing the road before and after school. Please be mindful of students and adults walking, biking or riding during this time. Your extra caution will ensure the safety of all. 

Recently, we sent an email communication to Colliers Hill families regarding opting to connect with other families to carpool to school. Please check your email for the sign up form.  

As part of our Standard Response Protocols, the school performs monthly drills. We will be conducting a fire drill and lock down drill in the coming months. For more information about our Standard Response Protocols, please click the links below. 


We hope you have a pleasant weekend. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. 

Best wishes,
Cyrus Weinberger, Principal
Soaring Heights PK-8

Academic proficiency is an important district goal for all elementary students. Research shows that extended school year learning opportunities positively affect student success.

SVVSD - Standard Response Protocols

Important Drive Line Reminders

We appreciate your help and support as we work to smooth out our pick-up and drop-off procedures.  We have had some near accidents on County Road 5 and as result have created some new procedures in consultation with local law enforcement and our SVVSD safety manager.  Please use the procedures below along with the attached map to review the safest route for entering the school.

  • Cars may enter the Soaring Heights campus through the designated turn lane only (do not use the main northbound through lane to turn into the school)

  • Access outside of the turn lane will be coned off

  • Kindergarten and preschool parents may merge into the second lane in the roundabout to access the kindergarten/preschool parking lot after entering campus

  • Be extra careful when making a left at the intersection of Colliers Pkwy and County Road 5 as this is a major crossing for our students

Thank you for following these procedures.  Please remember to place a sign with student name and teacher on your windshield.  Parents may also use the high school bus loop to park after 8:00 am and after 3:00 pm.

Please take a moment to review this visual to help understand how the Drive Line works when dropping off and picking up students at Soaring Heights.
