Early Dismissal Reminder:  Starting February 4, PV Schools will dismiss early every Friday through the end of the school year.  Previously scheduled Wednesday early dismissals will change to full school days.  PVHS dismisses at 12:05pm; PVJH dismisses at 12:55pm; Elementaries dismiss at 1:30pm.

Classwork When Absent For Medical Reasons - If your student is feeling well enough to participate during a lengthy absence, they are encouraged to participate in their classwork on google classroom. Please do not email the teacher unless it is absolutely necessary, use google classroom as your first resource. If your student is unable to participate due to illness, we would like them to take this time to rest and recover. There will be a reasonable amount of makeup time given to students after an illness to complete their work before it is counted as late.
