     This year Sipsey Valley High School had twenty three students who passed the ServSafe Manager's Certification Exam which is valid for five years and is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) - Conference for Food Protection (CFP).  This program blends the latest FDA Food Code, food safety research and years of food sanitation training experience. Those certified learn to implement essential food safety practices and create a culture of food safety. All content and materials are based on actual job tasks identified by food service industry experts.   
    *Special thanks to Mrs. Denise Shirley, the County Extension Coordinator for the Tuscaloosa County Cooperative Extension System, for helping to prepare students for the exam.

    The 4-H ServSafe Club would like to give you some important information about food-borne illness.

    Food-borne illness is a disease transmitted to people by food.  Everybody can get sick but the high risk populations are the very old, the very young, and those with a compromised immune system.  You can prevent food-borne illnesses from bacteria by cooking food to the correct temperatures.  You can prevent viruses by having good personal hygiene.  You should prepare your food like high risk populations will be coming in a restaurant.  The most common illnesses are called, "The Big Six".  They are Ecoli, Shigella, Salmonella Thyphi, NTS, Hepatitis A, and Norovirus.  The first four are bacteria's.  Hepatitis A and Norovirus are viruses.

    To: All Parents, Staff and Local Supporters
    In an effort to raise money for our school we are asking that you please donate all empty/used Inkjet and Laser Cartridges as well as old Cell Phones.  Cartridges and Phones can be collected from home, work, friends or neighbors. This will allow our school to raise much needed funds as well as protecting the environment. Cartridges should be placed in a zip lock bag or wrapped in cellophane to prevent leakage. 
    Thank you for your support of our School! 

    Sipsey Valley Auxiliary won a donation from Crimson Chiropractic. Crimson Chiropractic wanted everyone to go to their Facebook page to like and review it. Sipsey had the most to like, follow, and review their page.  The line received a donation for $200.00, a free photo shoot, and the sponsor receives a free hour massage.

    The Tuscaloosa County School System is excited to announce an online student registration/data validation system for the upcoming school year, powered by InfoSnap. The system is a secure and green process, which allows the district to verify all student demographic, emergency and medical information for your child prior to the start of the new school year. The system will also allow you to electronically sign the annual permission forms for school district policies. In short, this online process replaces all the hard copy student registration and permission forms that your child brings home on the first day of school.

     When it is time to fill out the online form, you will receive a letter/email from the Tuscaloosa County School System with instructions on how to access the system for your student. The email will contain a link/instructions and a secure “snapcode” that links directly to your student’s information. You will create an account, that you will use each year for this process, and submit a form for each student in your family. To make the process easier for families with multiple students, you will have the option to copy all generic family information to all other students in your family.

     We would appreciate all families to take action and complete these forms as soon as possible after receiving the letter/email. Your student’s registration will not be complete until the forms have been submitted. If you do not have access to the Internet, contact your child’s school and you can make an appointment to use a school computer to complete the process. If you have any further questions, please contact the school office.

    The Sipsey Valley 4-H Archery Club attended the Natural Resource Field Day at Oakmulgee Wildlife Management Area in Moundville, Alabama, on Thursday, May 10th.  They toured the area and learned about herbicide/burn/long leaf management, feral pig management, deer research and southern pine beetle.  The SVHS 4-Archery Club was then introduced and appreciation was expressed to the National Wildlife Turkey Federation and the Tuscaloosa County Extension System.   Each archery member was allowed to demonstrated his/her archery skills to the group.  We are hopeful that more schools will take an interest in the 4-H Archery program.
