2019-20 Instructional Calendar Approved

posted Jan 16, 2019, 10:53 AM by Jessica Lester   [ updated Jan 16, 2019, 10:54 AM ]

calendar
The Perkiomen Valley School Board approved the 2019-20 instructional calendar at the Jan. 14th business meeting. The calendar features an Aug. 26, 2019, start for school, and a June 11, 2020, end date.

The calendar for next year is very similar to the current calendar, featuring parent-teacher conferences the week of Thanksgiving (meaning a full week off for students), and a winter break spanning Dec. 23 to Jan. 1.

Half-days have been included throughout the calendar year to accommodate in-service opportunities for professional and support staffs. Spring break will begin April 8 (which is an in-service day for graduation projects) and continue through April 13.

Graduation is planned for June 5, 2020. Three snow days have been built into this calendar. If none or only some of the snow days are used, the last day of school could be earlier than June 11.

PV Power Packs logo
Perkiomen Valley School District is offering nutritious meals and snacks, free of charge, to high school students in need of food during the weekends. Bags of food will be provided to children on the last school day before every weekend. There is no requirement to provide any financial information.

The bags will include:
  • 1 breakfast item for each day 
  • 1 lunch item for each day 
  • 1 snack item for each day 
  • 1 fruit or vegetable for each day 
If your child would benefit from this program, you are encouraged to enroll him/her by completing this form and returning it to your school counselor at the start of the school year. Once your student is enrolled in the Power Packs Program, he/she will receive a bag of food each week throughout the school year or until you no longer need/wish to participate. Your student will pick up the bag from the school counselor or other identified staff member and place the bag immediately in their backpack or locker as part of a confidential system.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact email PowerPacks@pvsd.org or call 610-489-8506.
