Good afternoon,

All four grades will have different programming.  All students will move from their 8th period class to their assigned (the one they went to the first week of school) homeroom.  Our 9th graders will meet with their their Link Crew Leaders, while our 10th graders will be taken to the auditorium for their class ring assembly.  Our 11th graders will remain in their homerooms and will watch information about graduation projects and our 12th graders will be taken to the Auxiliary gym for a senior class meeting.  Please see the revised bell schedule for the day.

We encourage parents to contact their student’s teachers, counselors and/or administrator with any questions or concerns. We try to respond to voicemails or emails within 24 hours.  If you have an emergency which requires immediate actions, please contact the main office of the school.


The eligibility list for athletics, clubs and other activities will be run each Friday. Any student who has a marking period grade below 60% at the time the report is run will not be eligible to participate in their sport or activity Sunday through Thursday. Please remind your student that every assignment counts!  Please contact your student’s teacher if you have questions about the current marking period grade.

Please join us on Thursday October 18th at 6:30pm for a conversation about Vaping. We’ll be joined by Patrick Dowling, LPC, a licensed clinician who works with adolescents and young adults. We will also be joined by a prevention specialist from Caron Treatment Center. Please see the website for more information about the  Vaping Conversation.

We are seeing more students engaging in this dangerous practice. Be aware that vaping  and/or possession of vaping products are against board policy and students who violate this policy will face school discipline.


The Class Ring Parent Ordering Night has been scheduled for Tuesday, October 2nd outside of the Cafeteria from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm and the Class Ring ordering during lunches will take place Wednesday, October 3rd outside of the cafeteria during ALL lunches.


We have a  HS Tipline for parents and students to make anonymous tips regarding things such as bullying, students in crisis, drugs, weapons,possible fights, threats, vandalism etc .  Please supply as much detail as possible (ie, time, date and location of the issue, persons involved, pictures if you have them, etc. I ask that you refrain from using this tipline to ask for school closures for inclement weather.  All tips are routed to the HS administrators, but in the case of an emergency please call 911. Tips that are sent in over weekends or vacation periods will be dealt with once school resumes.


All students have a school issued Gmail account. Students should access their email often to receive information from their classroom teachers, the daily announcements and more. Student logins are their network login@pvsd.org.


PSAT registration will open ONLINE ON THE PVHS WEBSITE STARTING  Monday Sept. 17 at 8:00 am and will close Friday Sept. 28th. at 3 pm.

If you register your student online a fee will be added to your HAC account for $25. If you sign up online, there is a one day lag time before you can make the payment in HAC.  Students can also come to the counseling center during their lunch to sign up. Registration is $25.00. Checks made payable to PVHS.


It is recommended that sophomores and juniors considering college take the test. Juniors who take this test will be entered into the National Merit Scholarship Program and could be eligible to receive scholarship monies.


Guest forms for the homecoming dance (Oct 13th) are now available. This dance is open to PVHS students in good standing (not on debt or privilege suspension lists) and one guest from another HS.  The guest form must be signed by and administrator at their school and returned to us. The dance runs from 7pm-10pm in our competition gym. Tickets will be on sale Oct 9-12 for $10 per person. This is not a formal dance (no gowns and tuxes), but most students do get dressed up a little.  Just a reminder, that shoes must be worn at all times while at the dance. This dance is sponsored by the Music Boosters.


Our clubs are beginning to have their initial meetings of the year.  You can find information about the clubs under the HS web page under activities.  The schedule of club meetings can be found on the morning announcements. Once rosters have been established, activity fees will be assessed for students in the clubs.  Please know, it may take some time for us to receive the rosters and enter them into the system.


If you have questions about the HS try to enter the term into the search bar of the HS webpage (ie yearbook).  You will find links to our webpages that contain that information.


The student handbook is on the website under the parent tab. The Handbook should be able to answer most of your questions about the high school.  Please take the time to familiarize yourselves with the contents of the handbook.


Additionally, the daily announcements are posted on the website. These are the same announcements that the students hear daily.  Students are emailed a copy of the daily announcements every day on their school gmail account. (their network login @pvsd.org). Please encourage your student to read them.


Please contact the HS if you have any questions about anything in the handbook or in the daily announcements.


All students grades 9-11 should now have received an ID card and a lanyard. These were given to students during the picture days this past week. Seniors will be getting theirs Monday (if they already had their portraits taken) or during the senior portrait make-ups today through Tuesday.

 

All students are required to have their ID visible at all times (not during PE or when in a shop class where the ID becomes a safety issue). They were given a lanyard, but don’t need to use the one given to them. They can also get a clip if they prefer. All we ask is that the ID is visible to everyone.

 

This is in an effort to make the HS an even safer place. Please reinforce with your student the importance of wearing their ID.  Unfortunately, students who don’t wear their ID will ultimately face school discipline. Let’s avoid going down that road and encourage your student to wear the ID.


At this time the fees for all fall athletics, AP exams, senior dues, and the senior trip have been entered into our system.  The activity fees for clubs will be entered after initial club interest meetings have occured and club rosters have been developed.  

 

For your convenience, in partnership with Frontstream Payments, the high school will accept 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 using the parent login 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


You can still pay for these items with a check(s) turned in to the school if you prefer. If you have any questions or feel that an error has been made on your student’s account, please contact the main office. Thank you for your patience as we implement this system.


Please remember if you are driving your student to school, the student drop-off/pick-up area is in the faculty parking lot (the one across from the stadium).  Please do not drop off your student on campus or high school drive as this creates unsafe conditions for everyone on campus.  


The class of 2019  Graduation Project paperwork is due before 12/1/2018.  Students can complete those projects this summer and hand in their paperwork before the 12/1/18 deadline.  More information about Graduation Projects may be found here.
