Seeking Your First Day Photos

posted by Jessica Lester   [ updated ]

first day photo
The first day of school is almost here! We hope you have your cameras ready - we’re going to be asking our parents to submit their “first day” photos to us again this year. We hope to capture the emotion and excitement of the first day back to school by creating a photo gallery on our website and on Facebook. Like we did last year, we've also provided some "first day" signs for those of you who want to pose with them. You can download the sign of your choice from the gallery below. 

When submitting your first-day photos, please send a maximum of two images from your day. Please make sure the images are in JPG format and are no bigger than 2 MB in size and at least 300 DPI in resolution. In sending us your photos, you will agree to allow your child’s image to appear online or be used in PVSD publications. You may send photos to jlester@pvsd.org. We look forward to seeing what you send!

Home Access Center (HAC) will open this week for student schedules, teacher assignments, bus information and more. HAC will open at noon on Tuesday, Aug. 14, for elementary students and their families to view teacher assignments. Please read on for other important information:

BUS INFORMATION AVAILABLE IN HAC

Bus information -- such as your child’s stop, arrival times and bus number -- will be available on the “Demographic” tab for all students. Please be sure to check this section regularly before school begins as updates may occur while our bus company modifies routes to make sure they are the most efficient.

TEACHER LETTERS FOR ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

Parents/guardians of kindergarteners and first-graders who are new to the district will receive copies of teacher letters via mail the week of Aug. 13. Everyone else will be able to view teacher assignments via HAC and may view teacher letters through the teacher’s profile page on www.pvsd.org.

HAC LOG-IN INFORMATION

HAC log-in information has been sent via email to all kindergarten families and to first-grade families joining the district for the first time. Those who already have accounts may log-in with their existing information. If you have forgotten that information, please use the “Forgot my username or password” link on the HAC log-in screen to retrieve that information.
