The PVSD community is invited to the Facilities Committee meetings that have been scheduled for Oct. 22 and 29, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the high school auditorium. While the focus of the discussion will be on South Elementary School’s facility needs, we are inviting the entire community because the options being considered will likely affect our district as a whole. Some proposed options may have an impact on other buildings, while others may have a significant impact on the budget. We invite you to attend and learn more and provide us with your feedback. The same information will be presented each evening.

As you and your children begin the 2018-19 school year, we wanted to share some information about various items that are new for this year and some reminders for the fall. Please read on for details:

TEXTING: This year, we will begin using the texting feature of our communications system to delivery timely and important information to you. Texts will be sent to any phone number associated with your student in our student information system. The text will come from a “short code” such as 23177, 63079 or 82932. When you receive a message from one of these codes, you may want to create a new contact and name it “PVSD” so you know next time who the sender is. If you do not want to receive texts, there will be instructions following our texts that allow you to opt out. Standard message and data rates will apply.

VOLUNTEER HANDBOOK: We have developed a Volunteer Handbook to assist anyone who would like to volunteer in knowing our expectations. The handbook helps to explain the differences between different types of volunteers and requirements for each. We invite you to review this handbook and other information on our website prior to volunteering.

ACTIVITY FEES: Student activity fees for grades 7-12 can be paid online through Home Access Center (HAC) this year. Once all team and activity/club rosters have been finalized by the coaches and sponsors, fees will be assigned to a student in HAC. Parents will be able to see a “Fees” tab upon logging into HAC. If no tab appears, it means that team/activity rosters are still being finalized. Please be patient as this is a new process and may take some time to fully implement. Continue to check back for updates.

BUSING INFORMATION: Please be sure to check HAC regularly to make sure you have accurate and up-to-date information about your child’s bus stop and number. Information is subject to change as the bus company continues adjusting routes to be the most efficient.

PUBLICITY REFUSAL FORM: This is a friendly reminder to complete a publicity refusal form if you do not want your child’s image used for publicity purposes. Please download the form from our website and send it to school with your child so that we may keep a record.
