High Lites May 25

posted May 25, 2018, 8:15 AM by Cyndi Moss

Good afternoon,

We have had a fun week here in the Valley.  Yesterday the HS hosted the annual PV Special Olympics. It was a beautiful day and our students had a great time.

Don’t forget we don’t have school Monday as it is Memorial Day.  Take some time to remember those who died while serving our country.


At least one parent has contacted me about reinstating the HS Home and School beginning next year. I am hoping that more of you are interested in participating.  Please let me know if you are interested in helping with this endeavor. I am hoping to have a meeting early this summer to further discuss this.


The last day to make ANY changes to next year’s requested courses is June 30th.  After that date the requests are final and students will be expected to remain in those courses for the entire 18-19 school year.  Please sit with your student to discuss their requested courses now and contact your student’s counselor to make any changes. We will only make changes to schedules if there is a mistake.


The bus waiver and parking permit application for the 2018-2019 school year is now available in the main office or online

Parking Information 2018-2019


A bus waiver form must be completed and turned into the main office no later than June 13th if a student is currently assigned to a bus yet wishes to waive the bus seat next year.  In exchange for waiving a seat on the bus next year the district will discount the parking permit rate. This option is not available after June 13th, so if you are interested in waiving the bus seat please fill out the application today and return it to Mrs. George.


The parking application must be completed in its entirety and returned to Mrs. George in the main office. On the application you must indicate whether you have applied for a bus waiver and if you will be paying for the permit with cash or check made out to PVHS or pay by credit card through HAC. If you choose to pay through HAC you cannot submit the payment until we have received your application and a bill has been generated for you in HAC (I expect that to occur within 48 hours of the application being submitted).  We are now able to take check, debit card or credit cards to make payments on HAC. Please see below for more information.


You will also need to supply a copy of the student’s valid driver’s license and current insurance card with the application.  Parking permits will not be assigned and distributed until sometime in August. I will send out the exact times and dates for permit pick up over the summer.


We will accept parking applications until we have sold out of parking spots.  Unfortunately we only have approximately 300 spots for students and last year we were sold out by November.  


And from the nurses’ office:

Pennsylvania State Law requires all students to have a complete health record on file. This includes a medical physical examination for all 11th grade including students attending PYAP, full time NMTCC, full time MCCC, PV Virtual Academy and Cyber School. A phone call and email message has been sent to you if your student does not have one on file.

The Private Physical Examination form is attached for your convenience and can also be located on the district website – Parent Tab – Forms.


Please send the completed physical exam form to school.

Your student will be placed on the debt list until the physical exam form is received.

Please contact Mrs. Morgitan with any questions/concerns at 610-489-1230 or jmorgitan@pvsd.org


Physical Form

 

ATTENTION ALL PARENTS OF 2018/2019 12th GRADE STUDENTS:

The State requires each 12th grade student (including PYAP, NMTCC, PVV, MCCC students) to have 2 (two doses) of Meningitis (MenACWY) vaccine before entering 12th grade.  

A phone call and email message has been sent to you if your current 11th grade student does not have one on file.

Please send an updated vaccination record to our school health office prior to the first day of school - August 27, 2018.


For your convenience, in partnership with Frontstream Payments, the high school now accepts online payments  through the Home Access Center for outstanding fees. Please note in order to be directed to the Frontstream payment portal you will need to disable popup blockers on your web browser.

To access the payment portal log into HAC and choose the "Fees" tab


Processing fees are as follows:

  • 25 cents per transaction for electronic check payments (requires entering bank routing number and account number)

  • 2.10% for payment with a Debit Card

  • 2.39% for credit card payment

  • 2.89% for payment with a credit rewards card

Good afternoon,


This is a friendly reminder from the PV Post Prom Committee that registration forms for students and permission forms for parents are posted on our website: Post Prom.  Students who submit a registration and parent permission form by TODAY  will be entered into a raffle to win prizes. Prizes include Smart TVs, laptops, iPads, Beats headphones, and even a drone! Raffle drawings will be held at the end of the party and students must be present the evening of Post Prom to collect the prize. If you have any questions, please feel free to email pvpostprom@gmail.com.

 

The PV Post Prom event is a week away and volunteers are still needed to make this event a success for our high school students. We hope that you may consider donating some of your time at Perkiomen Valley High School on May 11 or 12 (or in the wee hours of May 13) to provide an evening of fun that keeps both our students and our community safe.

You do not need to be the parent of a high school student to volunteer – in fact, we welcome anyone to join us so that this celebration has continuity into the future. Post Prom is a drug- and alcohol-free event open to juniors and seniors regardless of whether or not they go to prom. It is free for those who attend. This year’s theme is “Vegas Lights.”

The hours will be from 10:30 p.m. to 3 a.m., but if staying up late is not your thing, we need help with set-up as well. Please click here to sign up for a volunteer spot: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f044eacaa2cab9-pvpost3

Donations for food and funds are also appreciated. Here are two links below:

Teacher appreciation week is next week.  We no longer have a home and school at the high school that does things for staff during teacher appreciation week so the high school staff gets left out:(  


Please feel free to reach out to the educators that have made a difference in the lives of your children to thank them.  I can tell you that it will be appreciated. We often discuss how lucky we are as educators to work with your children and that we have a wonderful community.  (If you are interested in re-starting home and school for next year let me know. We would need parents who are interested in being officers).

  • Students taking an AP Exam are permitted to leave school after a 7:30 am Exam is over and students taking am 11:30 am AP exam are permitted to come to school late as long as they have a parent note stating you are aware your son or daughter is doing so because of the AP Exam administration. ALL AP notes will be collected at the exam location. Students do not need to drop off notes or sign in at the office.

  • Cell phones, smart watches, iPads, and other electronic devices are not permitted in the AP testing room. Please remind your student to leave them at home or be prepared to turn them in for storage during the exam at the front of the room.

Good afternoon,


Today’s event in our courtyard went well.  A number of students attended and students voiced their opinions.  Various viewpoints were represented. PVTV and the Voice attended the discussions to document the discussions.  Our students are amazing and were very respectful of each other’s views. They will be making a video which I hope we can share with all who are interested.



On April 24th our seniors who attend NMTCC will be taking their NOCTI exams.  Therefore there is no tech school that day for our 9th, 10th and 11th grade students.  Students who attend AM tech can either arrive at PV at 10:30 and sign in at the main office or arrive at normal time and attend study hall until their period ⅘ class.  PM tech students will be dismissed at noon. Students will be able to take a bus or drive home. The bus will pick up the students in the bus loop.

Information sent out to you previously but still relevant:


The PV Student Loan applications are now available.  If your student is a senior and looking for an interest-free loan you can get the application online at http://www.pvsd.org/home/links-to-pv-supporting-organizations/perkiomen-valley-student-loan-association or contact Mrs. Prettyman in the counseling center.



The HS staff has been busy trying to enter any past due debts or current fees (for example the activity fee and senior dues) into Home Access Center so you can see what your son/daughter might owe.  The fee tab can be found at the registration page. In the future, an online payment option will be available, but for now, the payments still need to be submitted the old school way (brought to school).  If you have questions about a fee listed, please contact the appropriate person (teachers for textbooks, librarian for library fees, main office for activity fees, athletic office for athletic debts, etc).  I hope you will find this to be a more efficient way to view the “debt list”.

The district calendar, distributed the first day of school, has many important dates, including dates for mandatory graduation practices and graduation itself.  More information about graduation and other senior events will be distributed in April, but you should have your senior block out June 6 and 7 for mandatory graduation practice and June 8th for graduation.  Senior Dates


Educational Trip information

An Educational Trip Request form must be submitted to the Principal five (5) days prior to the student’s departure. Educational Trip Form

Approval for such trips is limited to ten (10) school days per year. Any days above the 10 days of absence will not be approved for an educational trip.

Educational trips will not be approved during Keystone Exams or Final Exams

Non-school educational trips are not recommended for students in academic difficulty or with attendance problems and will not be approved.

It is the responsibility of the student to contact his/her teacher to make arrangements to make up work missed during an educational trip.  

College visits and job shadowing opportunities will be counted as non-absences if student returns with official evidence from the college/job (i.e., stationary/business card from college admissions office or from supervisor if job shadowing, and/or other documentation verifying proof of visit/job shadowing).


Absences:

Please call the school  by 8:30 AM to notify us of your student’s absence.  

When you call the attendance line, you will be directed to leave a message for Mrs. Berry.

If you need to speak to her, please contact the main office and ask to speak with her.  

There are two designations for absences from school in Pennsylvania, excused and unexcused. An absence from school is categorized as excused when it is followed by a note that provides an acceptable reason for the absence within three days of the absence.

This note may be sent as an email to cberry@pvsd.org. The source of this email must be listed as a guardian contact email address on the district’s eSchoolPlus student information system.  

An absence is categorized as unexcused when the child’s school has not received a note providing an acceptable reason for the absence within a three day time period.



As always, if you have any questions about anything in this email or about any of our procedures, please contact either myself or any of the house principals.  Our handbook is also a great resource for you. Handbooks


Have a wonderful weekend,

Cyndi Moss
