Hello Panther Families!
I hope that everyone took some time to relax, recharge, and enjoy their summer! As we enter the 21-22 school year, I am excited to get back to a typical schedule and see where each one of our students can go and excel! I know that this year is going to be one of the best years yet because we are going to take what we learned from last year, apply it to this year, and hit the ground running.
Our focus this year will be forming a stronger Panther Pack. All of our students are in our Pack and we want to build an unstoppable and incredible Pack. We are all on the same team and we will achieve greatness when we all work hard, believe, reflect, set goals, and above all else be kind to one another.
One way that we are going to build a stronger Panther Pack is by attending school regularly. We want to see our students at school as much as possible because if they are not here, they will not reach their potential. We will be communicating on a regular basis around attendance through phone calls, e-mails, and mailings home. Please let us know how we can you help get your child to school!
I am very excited to have our students back on campus!
- School Day
- Reminder that our school day will run from 7:40 am to 2:50 pm. Students can be dropped off by their parent/guardian at the band room doors beginning at 7:30 am. Students will unload our buses at 7:30 am. All students will have an opportunity to grab a bagged breakfast to eat in their homerooms. We are happy to announce that all families are eligible for free breakfast and lunch again this year, but we do need all families to complete and return the free and reduced lunch applications to the main office.
- This will occur daily for 10 minutes (7:40 am to 7:50 am). It is an opportunity for students and staff to build strong connections. Students will use this time to eat breakfast, connect with their Faculty Advisor and prepare for their day. The Faculty Advisor will follow their assigned cohort through graduation.
- Student Handbook
- It is important to read through the Student Handbook for information about our school. Families will need to create a FamilyID account with a profile for each child in the family this year. Once created, families must sign-off on our Student Handbook and Technology Agreements. FamilyID can be accessed from our website at pval.org. Enclosed are step by step directions to access FamilyID. Please note that the Student Handbook will be available online starting September 7th. If you do not have access to the internet, please call the main office and we can arrange a time for you to come in.
- Face Masks
- We will continue our mask policy as per CDC guidance to keep all our Pine Valley family safe!
