·         Please check the announcements on our website for the latest information on assemblies, club meetings, college visits, etc. They can be found at the very top of the news section.  Students who are not in the building during homeroom are responsible for the announcements. In addition to PVTV and our website, students can find the announcements on the TV screens outside of the cafeteria.  Also, the student handbook is posted on the district website. Please take the time with your student to read through it so that you are familiar with our policies and procedures. 

·         Graduation Projects
Seniors are encouraged to complete their work on their Graduation Projects and prepare to hand in all of their paperwork on or before 12/1.  They recently participated in an assembly where Mrs. Colucci answered questions for the good of the group.  If they have individual questions or concerns, please encourage your student to see Mrs. Colucci as soon as possible or reach out to her by email: 
pcolucci@pvsd.org   Sophomores participated in an assembly on Wednesday (9/20) during 9th period to receive information about Graduation Projects.  An overview was shared about this graduation requirement.  They were encouraged to utilize the November 15th Career/Volunteer Fair wisely to make connections.  For sophomores, their proposal for their Graduation Project is due on or before 4/1/18.  The Graduation Project Manual can be found here.

·         Kutztown University will be visiting on October 4th. Seniors who attend this visit are able to complete the application online for FREE and will receive a NON-Binding admissions decision within two weeks. Students must see Mrs. Agudio in the counseling center ASAP.




And from the handbook:

Dismissal for Special Circumstances

Should a parent need to have a student dismissed from school before the regular time for special or urgent reasons, he/she should send a written request for an early dismissal that includes the reason, date and time, and signature of a parent/guardian. This request must be presented to the attendance area (immediately upon arrival to school in the morning.  A parent/guardian must call the office to confirm the dismissal before 9:00 a.m. Students must sign out in the main office attendance area before leaving the building. If the student returns before the end of the school day, he/she is to sign in at the main office attendance area. Early dismissals are generally approved for illness, doctors’ appointments, and family emergencies. Early dismissals will be recorded as class absences. Students leaving before 11:15 a.m. or arriving after 11:15 a.m. will be charged with 1/2 day absence.



Educational Trips (Board Policy #204)

Upon receipt of a written request from the parents of the students involved, students may be excused from school attendance to participate in an educational tour or a trip during the school term at the expense of the parents.


An Educational Trip Request form must be submitted to the Principal five (5) days prior to the student’s departure. Approval for such trips is limited to ten (10) school days per year. Additional days will be classified as unexcused and be subject to legal attendance regulations. A signature of the parent(s)/ guardian(s) must accompany the application. Every effort should be made to avoid proposing trips during final examinations and the State testing dates for students in participating grades and/or courses as such absences cannot be recorded as excused. Please see the testing schedules for PSSA and Keystone Exams included in this handbook. Non-school educational trips are not recommended for students in academic difficulty or with attendance problems and will not be approved. The ten (10) days will be recorded absences and fall within the attendance policy. It is the responsibility of the student to contact his/her teacher to make arrangements to make up work missed during an educational trip.  For additional information, contact your school principal.




Have a wonderful weekend,

Cyndi Moss
