Last spring the state began their own tip line Safe2Say.  This tip line will enable you to send anonymous tips to notify the proper authorities to any number of concerns such as mental health concerns, safety, drugs/alcohol, bullying and more.  There are several ways to report a concern; you can call 1-844-safe2say, go to the Safe2Say or download the app.  Your tip will be forwarded to the appropriate person.

Work at PV as a Substitute Aide! Looking to take your involvement with the district to the next level? Submit your application as a Substitute Teacher Aide and spend your days providing meaningful service to students and staff in our schools. No formal teaching experience is required, just a willingness to work with students of all ages and abilities thoughout the district. Although regular availability is preferred, this job provides significant scheduling flexibility from week to week. Apply now online or contact Susan Angel (sangel@pvsd.org) with questions. 

We have recently updated our eligibility processes.  Students are still expected to maintain a minimum grade average of 60% in all classes. In the event a student’s grade average in one course drops below 60% they will be notified and placed on a one week probationary period. Students are expected to seek assistance for the class/course during the probationary period and may still participate in PIAA sports or extra-curricular and co-curricular school activities during that week.  For a student on probation who has not achieved a passing average (higher than 60%) by the second week, he/she will be ineligible for a period of one week and not permitted to participate in any PIAA sports or extra-curricular and co-curricular school activities beginning Sunday and extending to the following Saturday.

Students with grade averages below 60% in two or more courses will not be afforded a probationary period and will be declared ineligible.

The district is beginning a capital campaign to improve student experiences and level the playing field called "Rally for the Valley." The intent is to raise money to offset costs for proposed athletic field improvement projects, such as the installation of synthetic turf at Thomas J. Keenan Stadium, construction of a synthetic turf multi-purpose field at the site of our current baseball field, and construction of two, multi-purpose synthetic turf fields behind the high school. To learn more about these projects and how you can support the effort, please visit our webpages for more information.
