home where the art is

The SRVUSD Art Departments designed apparel for our students/families to help build community rapport and school spirit.  Here is the link for students, families, and staff to view and order their apparel. Please use the code: freeshipJASSB for free individual shipping to your home. Please note that all orders must be received by Monday, October 19th. If we do not meet the minimum number required for production, the whole order will be canceled.

Note from Shopify: When people participate in a group order/Shopify order, we put a hold on their credit card for the maximum amount that they might have to pay in case the group order tips into a regular order. That hold will show up on each client’s card statement under “In Progress” or “Processing” or “Pending.” It’ll stay under “In Progress” or “Processing” or “Pending” until the group order deadline passes. If it passes and the group order hits the minimum, we’ll charge their cards the appropriate amount and the charge will move to the section of the statement for completed charges. At that point, we have charged their cards. If the deadline passes and the group order doesn’t hit the minimum, we will not charge their cards and will release the hold so the charge will disappear from their statements entirely within 3 to 5 business days.
