Good afternoon,

If you know your student will be absent from school, please contact Mrs. Berry, our attendance secretary at cberry@pvsd.org or by calling our office at 610.489.1230 and press 3.  You can also find this information under the attendance tab on the high school home page.  Attendance

Conferences will be held on November 20th and 21st. This year, the high school will be offering opportunities for parents to meet after regular school hours on Monday November 20th.  Should you wish to have a conference with a teacher, please contact that teacher directly.  You can find the email addresses of all staff members on our website (most staff email addresses are the teacher’s first initial and last name @pvsd.org.

Please join us for Perkiomen Valley High School’s annual Career and Volunteer Fair on Wednesday, November 15th.  The annual Career Fair helps our students explore a variety of career options while giving them a realistic picture of the job market and dispelling some career myths.  This highly interactive, trade-show type of event allows students the opportunity to discuss with you topics like career paths, secondary education, growth in your fields and so much more.  The Volunteer Fair (same time and day) offers our students an opportunity to connect with our community leaders, learn about your mission and find meaningful ways to get involved.  We are always searching for a wide variety of representatives.  To participate, please register using the Career/Volunteer Fair Registration Link or contact Patti Colucci (pcolucci@pvsd.org) if you need additional information.

We have a Tipline at the high school for anonymous reporting of tips on our website. If you wish to report an issue please provide specific information such as names, dates and times as we are not able to respond back to the tip to gather additional information.  Tips such as “ bad stuff is happening in lunch” would be better as “ so and so is doing this to so and so (or to the kid in the red shirt) during period 6 lunch and it happened yesterday and today”.  We will investigate every tip that is reported.

All students taking an AP CLASS at PV are expected to take the AP Test.  Payment for the tests is now overdue.  AP Tests can be paid for on-line at the High School Website   AP Exam RegistrationThose students requiring a payment plan (or if you have any questions regarding payment) should see Mr. Stipa in the Main Office.

We have an after school bus available on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4PM for students who stay after for academic help only.  Students must get a bus pass from the teacher they stay after with in order to get on the bus. The bus leaves from the top of the student parking lot.

And from the handbook:
Activity Fee
In order for PVSD to continue to offer high quality athletic and extracurricular activities, the school district has established an activity fee for students in grades 7-12 who participate in a school activity. The activity fee is $100 per student with a maximum of $300 per household. Payment of the fee provides a student the opportunity to participate in an unlimited number of activities and athletic programs during the academic school year.  This annual fee serves to support the existence and maintenance of all PVSD activities. 

The activity fee is nonrefundable once participation in an activity has started.  In addition, the activity fee is non-refundable or prorated if a student becomes injured or ineligible during the season, removed from a team for academic or disciplinary reasons, if a contest is cancelled and cannot be rescheduled, or if full allotment of games cannot be scheduled.  

A list of extracurricular and athletic activities for which the fee is expected and directions for how to make the payment can be accessed on the PVSD website under the “Parents” tab then select “Activity Fee Information.”
