FEBRUARY HOLY BUCKETS! Where has this year gone?  I feel like it has flown by. I want to take a minute to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all of you for the amazing job you have done keeping sick or almost sick kids at home, communicating with us effectively, and helping us maintain our COVID protocols with fidelity. We appreciate you and understand that it is the partnership between home and school that has allowed us to keep our cohorts open!



CMAS Testing

Yesterday, the federal government announced that states are expected to proceed as planned with administering required standardized assessments. We are glad to have a decision so that we can move forward with certainty and provide as much up-front information to famillies as possible. Testing will occur throughout April for our in-person students and Mondays in April will be utilized to assess our virtual students. CMAS is required to be completed within the school building and so virtual students will test on the following days:

Monday, April 5 from 8am-4pm - 6th, 7th and 8th Grade Virtual Students - All ELA Tests
Monday, April 19th from 8:30am-2:30pm - 6th, 7th and 8th Grade Virtual Students - All Math Tests
Monday, April 26th from 8:30am-2:30pm - 8th Grade Virtual Students - All Science Tests

Virtual Parents: If you have not already, please complete this survey so that we can plan according with our Transportation & Nutrition Services departments for our Mondays. You do not need to complete this survey if you have already contacted us regarding a testing excusal or if you have an in-person PVMS student. 

Any questions regarding state assessments should be directed to Assistant Principal and School Assessment Coordinator Grace Bird at gbird@sd27j.net. 



COVID Updates 

Covid communication will now be facilitated by Korri Stauffer. Please reach out to her with questions, concerns, or health updates. 

Kstauffer1@sd27j.net or call her at 720-685-5409

A reminder, that in the event of exposure to a positive or presumed positive case, we may close cohorts for safety reasons and potentionally whole grade-levels if we do not have sufficient staff to cover all classes in-person. When this occurs, those students will still have access to learning online. If there is a cohort/grade closure that impacts your child(ren), you will receive direct communication from us with dates and instruction for quarantining as well as information about online learning schedules. 



Make-a-WISH Month is wrapping up!

As we wrap up Make a Wish Month, I am happy to report that our students and families successfully raised $3,594 that will be towards Parker’s wish. Thank you so much for your generosity and kindness! 


Campus Hours

The PVMS campus is open for students 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 do not offer outside 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.
