Welcome Back!

August 5, 2022

Good evening Shark Families:

It was a terrific pleasure meeting parents this week. If you were unable to attend, we would like to offer some of the information shared:

If you are able, please support our PTO and/or Athletic Booster organizations. They offer outstanding support to our school community.

Important Dates:

  • The first day of school, August 10, 2022, is an early release day. We will conduct a homeroom. Students who may have a modified schedule first or second period are expected to report at 9:15am to receive their final class schedule. Homeroom assignments will be available on the first day of school.
  • PVHS Open House: September 1, 2022 beginning at 6:00pm
  • First Marking Period Family Night: September 14, 2022

Traffic: We generally experience heavy volumes of traffic the first few weeks of school. We anticipate traffic to ease as the school year progresses. Transportation routes take time to adjust. Again, we anticipate that buses will arrive on time within the first few weeks of school. Students will have access to the courtyard beginning at 8:00am if you plan to avoid excessive traffic. Parents dropping students off should use the bus loop up until 8:50am. When picking students up, please do not encourage your student to meet you in the pickup line or turn around in our parking area. This only adds traffic issues.

Students who have received a parking pass are required to display their hangtag. Hangtags are currently available in Dean’s Reception.

Please refrain from parking in numbered spaces when visiting the school campus as all parking is assigned. Please used designated visitor parking. In the event visitor parking is unavailable, you may park in front of the school. Please notify the front office receptionist that you are parking in front of the school.

Schedules: We are currently working through more than 400 requests received Wednesday for schedule adjustments. Please be patient. We are reviewing requests and anticipate that allowable changes will be reflected when schedules are released on Monday or when final class schedules are distributed on the first day of school. If you believe an error still exists, your student should meet with their counselor before school (8:30am-9:15am) or during their scheduled lunch period. Current counselor assignments are as follows (we anticipate our fourth counselor to be on campus in the coming weeks):

  • Kaplan: A-ED & REX-SHEN
  • Grillo: EG-LEA & SHEP-TUC
  • Ngai-Crim: LEB-RES & TUR ZUR

If at any time throughout the school year you need academic assistance, you should contact the teacher first, then your student’s counselor, and then the administrator in charge of the department (PVHS Info Guide 2023).

We will have a focus of student attendance and tardies this year. It is important for students to attend school regularly and arrive to classes on time. Our procedures for addressing these issues will be presented to students at class meetings on August 11, 2022.
