EAT PIZZA & SUPPORT PVMS! 

PVMS will be hosting a fundraiser at Dion’s Pizza on January 26, 2021 (TONIGHT) from 5:00-8:00 pm. This fundraiser is easy because all we have to do is show up and eat pizza and we get a percentage of sales. Please join us at 15150 E 104th Ave, Commerce City, CO and help our WEB program raise money. 



Online Interest for 2021-2022 - Please Take This Parent Survey!

While we don't know what to expect for next school year, we do know that every family has preferences.  We also know how challenging online learning has been for some. For others, it has been a successful experience. We are interested in knowing your preference for each of your children so that we can plan accordingly for the 2021-2022 school year. Completing the survey does not commit you to a choice, it simply helps us plan. Please complete one survey for each of your child(ren). Your participation is greatly appreciated! 



Campus Hours

The PVMS campus is open for students Tuesday to Friday from 9:45am to 4:45pm. We ask that you please make your best effort to not drop-off students before or pick-up after these times. Student safety is our top priority and we are unable to provide supervision outside of these times.



Student Pick-Up Requirements

Any parent or guardian picking up their student at PVMS during school hours MUST provide a photo ID. This important safety precaution ensures our Tigers are headed home with the right people. Please make sure to bring your photo ID with you when you come to the vestibule. No exceptions will be made and we appreciate your understanding as nothing is more important than keeping our Tigers safe.

 

Free & Reduced Lunch Applications & Fee Waivers

Since school meals are free for all students this school year, less families have completed the Free & Reduced Meal Application. In addition to free and reduced lunch, this application can make you eligible to have school fees waived for your 27J students. Here is how to apply: 

To fill out the school fees waiver form, go to www.payschoolscentral.com or use the PaySchools app, go to User > Share Disclosures with Other Departments. Additionally, you may get a paper copy of this form at your child’s school. 

If you have any questions, you may go to www.sd27j.org/Page/294 for additional information, or contact our main office. 

 

Remote Support for Blended Learners Reminder

Starting on January 12th, our blended learners’ attendance is now required at their remote support office hours. This expectation change was made in the hope that it would increase student participation and ensure that our students were ready with the knowledge and skills that they need to be successful on their in-person days. These remote support office hours are led by our virtual PVMS teachers who are licensed and experienced in the same subjects as your students’ in-person teachers. 



School Pictures

Virtual Tigers that came in for school pictures can pick up their Lifetouch picture proofs and their school ID’s from the main office at any time.




COVID Updates

Health Screen - The district is  sending out a health screen survey to every family every morning. You will only fill out the form if your TIGER is sick. If your TIGER is healthy it will not need to be filled out. 

Cohort Closures - Last week, we had to closed multiple cohorts for two days out of an abundance of caution due to a presumed positive case of COVID-19. That case ended up being negative and so we were able to welcome back those students to the building on Friday. If the event that this happens, communication is sent to the affected families via Blackboard - the same message system used to send out these weekly updates. A text is also sent to notify you to check your email for the message. The system sends these messages to the emails and phone numbers of parents/guardians listed in Infinite Campus. If these change at any time, please contact our main office so that they can update this information in IC. 

Thank You! - One of the main reasons that we have been able to stay so safe at PVMS this year and prevent COVID-19  transmission at school is that families have been keeping their sick students home and have been communicating with us about confirmed positive cases or potential exposure for members of their households. Thank you so much and keep it up! Questions, concerns, or reports regarding COVID-19 should be directed to our site coordinator, Mr. Haynie at lhaynie@sd27j.net



CMAS Testing

It's hard to believe, but CMAS testing will be upon us soon. Testing is scheduled to occur from April 12th to 20th. These annual state assessments measure a student's proficiency related to state English Language Arts, math, and science standards. These assessments provide us with invaluable data to help us plan to meet the needs of our students. This data is even more important than ever for us considering all the changes and interruptions that have occurred in the last year - we are excited to see where all of our students are so that we can plan accordingly for their learning in the upcoming school year. Schedules for testing will be shared in March. 

Virtual Students & CMAS -  While we offer a fully virtual option for day-to-day learning, the state requires that CMAS be completed within the school building. As with our in-person learners, student safety is our #1 priority and we are confident that we will be able to provide a safe environment for our virtual students to test at PVMS. Virtual students will be assigned to specific testing groups only made up of other virtual students, are separate from in-person learners/teachers and will follow all state guidelines for safety including distancing, capacity, and masking. Additionally, they will arrive at a different time and enter the building through separate doors. If you have a virtual PVMS student and you have not already, please complete this survey to help us gather information. We successfully completed ACCESS testing yesterday in-person for our virtual students and everything went very well!
