Good afternoon, 

  • You can still go into HAC to update your information in HAC. If you go into HAC and then registration, you will see an update registration tab. Once you click on that, click the “new” hyperlink. Please attend to this as soon as possible as it is imperative that we have up-to-date information in our system. Thank you .  See the information below sent from the distict to you in September: 

We ask that you take a few moments to update your contact information through the registration verification process using Home Access Center. This will ensure that we are able to reach you with important information about delays, early dismissals and/or school cancellations due to inclement weather. 

Registration verification involves confirming information that the district has on file regarding your child(ren) and parent/guardian and emergency contact information. If you have forgotten your HAC log-in information, you may use the "Forgot My User Name or Password" feature on the log-in screen to reset your password. As a reminder, only one parent/guardian (labeled as Guardian 1 in our school database) can change registration information, and parents of multiple children must complete a registration verification form for each child. Address information cannot be changed online - proof of residency must be shared with your school in order for address information to be adjusted in our database. 

In addition, we wanted to let you know that students at the secondary level will be asked to sign an Acceptable Use Policy user acknowledgment form in school. This form will ask them to acknowledge that they are familiar with Policy 815 (Acceptable Use of Computers, Network, Internet, Electronic Communications and Information Systems) and the consequences outlined in student handbooks if Policy 815 is violated. Parents of secondary students will be asked to acknowledge that they understand this in one section of the online registration verification form. 

We feel it is important to have students complete this form as we continue to use Web 2.0 tools, the Google portal, and eventually transition to student Gmail accounts. 

You may also notice one additional checkbox on the form this year, where we will ask you to indicate if your student has a parent/guardian who is an active member of the military. We thank you in advance for responding to this question. 

Please update your information in HAC by Monday, Oct. 2, 2017. 

  • PV does not have school on October 9th, but NMTCC does. Students will be transported to and from the tech school via bus. The bus drivers will be able to provide pick-up information to your student.  Contact STA at 610 489-9110 if you need additional information regarding bus stops and pick up and drop off times. 
  • Guest forms for the Oct 21st homecoming dance are now available in the main office. These forms must be completed and turned in to the main office no later than Wednesday October 11th if a student (grades 9-12) from outside of PVHS will be coming to our dance as a guest. The homecoming dance is a semi-formal dance for all PVHS students in good standing. More information about this dance will be available soon.
  • All students taking an AP CLASS at PV are expected to take the AP Test. Payment for the tests is now due. AP Tests can be paid for on-line at the High School Website  https://sites.google.com/a/pvsd.org/perkiomen-valley-high-school/home/news/onlineregistrationforaptestsnowopen. Those students requiring a payment plan 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. 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.
  • 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.
  • We are very blessed in the valley to have wonderful school spirit. Our student section is currently in the Final Four of a best student section contest with other local schools. We could really use your votes to vote PVHS as the best student section. You can vote daily through Oct 15th. http://papreplive.com/2017/10/02/the-final-four-is-here-vote-for-the-best-student-section-in-se-pa/
  • Additionally, we have the opportunity to be the game of the week sponsored by the Eagles. Vote this weekend for the PV Norristown football game http://fanpages.philadelphiaeagles.com/showdown-voteforgame.html

A note regarding Senior Announcements from Student Services

On Thursday morning, Student Services Company, Perkiomen Valley High School's official provider of graduation products, presented the graduation products program to the seniors and your child was given a packet to take home to review with you.

The deadline for these orders is Friday, October 13th. Please be sure to place your order online by going to www.sscgradstore.com, or have your child hand in his/her order to the main office by this date.  If any senior needs ordering information, Mr. Ferraro has left extra order packets in the main office.

And from the handbook:

Parents are required to notify the office and teacher of any change in a student’s address, telephone number, emergency contact information, or any other information that is helpful to school personnel in working with a child. At the beginning of each school year, parents are required to login to HAC to verify their child’s contact information. A Residential Change of Address form must be completed and signed by a parent/guardian, along with official proof of address (power bill, lease, or purchase agreement), to verify the new address and record the change in the District’s student information system. For additional information regarding online registration verification, go to the PARENT tab on the PVSD website and select “Home Access Center/Online Registration Info.”

Have a wonderful weekend,

Cyndi Moss
