Garnet Valley is announcing a fun project that they are sponsoring through a 501(c)(3), Little Hero Foundation (LittleHeroFoundation.org).

Garnet Valley Strong wristbands were created to remind everyone that we are stronger together. We hope the free wristbands provide a smile to Garnet Valley families while showing support for our awesome community! #GVstrong 💪

Our primary goal is that the wristbands bring joy to everyone at home missing their friends.

ORDER YOUR GARNET VALLEY STRONG WRISTBAND HERE!

On the order form link: https://form.jotform.com/200862613662150
there is also a completely optional donation section. 100% of every optional donation received is divided between GV-CTC and the AI DuPont emergency families fund (to help families in the hospital pay for adult meals without having to risk unnecessary exposure during the COVID19 crisis by leaving isolation units).

To date, we have dispersed nearly 700 wristbands around the community and raised $1,200.00!

We currently have about 1000 more #GVstrong wristbands, and hope to give them out! Wristbands are free of charge, bagged in individual packages and delivered or mailed for sanitary purposes.

For those interested in receiving wristbands, here’s the order form link:

About us:

Our daughter Charlotte will begin Kindergarten in Garnet Valley this coming fall, and our son Ben is almost 2.

In early 2019, we had similar wristbands made for our friends and family when we were in isolation with our son Ben. He was fighting a rare pediatric liver cancer and was undergoing chemo treatment. While it was hard to not see our loved ones (aside from immediate family) through this time, it always made me smile when I would look down and see my happy band! Even more so, I loved seeing photos of friends and family sporting their Team Ben bands. It made me feel like we were not alone, and had a community of support.

I had the idea to make wristbands, as we navigate COVID19 and these uncertain times, to similarly bring a feeling of unity to our Garnet Valley Friends.

Dear School Community,

I wanted to inform you of a disturbing situation that occurred yesterday afternoon. There was an attempted child luring/corruption of a minor incident on Rebeccas Lane near Thornton Road in Concord Township. A male, driving a cream-colored sedan, described as Hispanic or Asian in his mid to late 40’s with short black hair, a baseball cap, and a beard, pulled his vehicle near the victim after she exited the school bus and proceeded to show her sexually explicit video on his phone. He then asked the victim if she would engage in sexual acts with him. Fortunately, this resourceful and courageous student did all of the right things and got home safely.

We are working in conjunction with the state police and are fully investigating the issue. All of our drivers are on heightened alert, and we ask that families reinforce their safety rules and expected behaviors with children this evening.

If anyone has information regarding this incident, please contact the Pennsylvania State Police, Media Barracks at 484-840-1000 or 911 for an immediate issue.

Sincerely,

Dr. Marc Bertrando, Superintendent

Garnet Valley School District

Dear School Community,

On Tuesday evening the School Board unanimously approved the 2020-21 and 2021-22 calendars.

Please click on THIS LINK to access them.

I wanted to highlight that students will start school on Tuesday, September 1. Beginning school prior to Labor Day represents a big change for Garnet Valley; however, although we will start before the holiday the next two years, it does not represent a new tradition. Instead, we will always approach the creation of the instructional calendar with the best interests of students, staff, and families in mind and make decisions accordingly.

As I stated in my last email, we wanted to give parents plenty of time to coordinate their family and school schedules; hopefully, you’ve found our new timeline helpful. If you are not able to access the link, the calendar is also posted on our website.

Sincerely,

Dr. Marc Bertrando, Superintendent
