Hi Everyone,

Just as a reminder it is our graduation tomorrow. We will be busy with all of the final preparations and will not be in the office. The school will be open after Memorial Day on Tuesday, May 31, from 8:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. Summer office hours are Monday-Thursday from 8:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M.

My team is already putting together our summer mailer (airline ticket) with a QR code that will provide you with all the back-to-school information. I can’t wait for you to see it!

I appreciate getting to know so many of you. We have the best families out here in our beautiful valley! As you know, it is better in the valley!

I hope you all have a wonderful summer and enjoy time with family and friends. If you have any good smoker BBQ recipes I would love it if you would share those with me! That’s something I love to do as well, but I have so much to learn.

I have the best job in the world! Thank you for your love and support!

Monday, May 23, 2022

Dear Aviators,

Congratulations! We are officially on the countdown until graduation this week!.

Please be aware of the following:

1. Schedule Tomorrow:

Tomorrow the bells will be on a regular schedule. All students will go to their 1st-period class at 7:45 am. Starting around 8 A.M., we will call students down one Terminal at a time to get their yearbooks. The students can then attend their classes to get signatures from their peers and teachers.

2. Yearbook Second Chance:

Students will be able to pick up their yearbooks at the signing party today, Monday 5/23 at 7:00 P.M. All yearbooks are sold out, however; many of you asked if we could order more. Josten’s has offered to do a second printing at cost. Because they are not part of the original bulk printing rate, these will be $125.00 plus tax so it will be closer to $135.00 dollars or so. If you would like to pre-pay and order a yearbook, please go to myschoolfees on our website to make your purchase under “2nd Chance Yearbook”. These will arrive towards the end of June.

3. Summer School:

CVHS will offer limited summer school offerings this summer: English 9,10, & 11 Secondary Math 1 & 2. The CVHS Summer School schedule can be found here. Students may also attend Lehi HS which will offer a variety of subjects. You can find the Lehi HS Summer schedule here. To register students must pay the $25/class to our Finance Office before the last day of school. For any questions please reach out to your student’s counselor.

4. Graduation Information Update:

We wanted to give you a few reminders about our upcoming graduation that will take place at the BYU Marriott Center on Thursday, May 26, 2022.

a.. The cap and gown issued by the school represent the uniform for ASD graduation. They should be worn appropriately and not altered.

b. The recently passed HB30 expanded the graduation uniform, allowing cultural expressions for cultural regalia and objects of “religious and cultural significance” for our qualified Native students and inclusive of other cultures. (i.e., Pacific Islander formal Ta’ovala, leis, feather, flowers in moderation, necklaces, etc.)

c. Additions to the cap and gown should reflect culturally significant objects to the students, families, and their communities. These are not limited to only one. These objects should not include representations of drugs, violence, political speech, flags, or other non-religious or non-culturally significant objects.

d. Students must obtain administrative pre-approval for adjustments to graduation wear. Pre-approval should allow for appropriate cultural expressions without causing last-minute misunderstandings and frustrations. Please make an appointment to meet before May 24, 2022, at 3:00 P.M.

1. Students (parents are welcome) must bring in the objects of “religious and cultural significance” to their administrator. Only items approved will be allowed at graduation.

The Seniors will be released during the last 15 minutes of their B5 class to go to the auditorium.

This week is Safety Week at Cedar Valley High School. This year we have had multiple evacuation drills and a drill reviewing hold, secure, and lockdowns. This week we will have an earthquake drill. We take safety seriously at Cedar Valley High School. We follow protocols from the Standard Response Protocol from the I Love U Guys Foundation. We will be addressing pedestrian safety in our next Skybound Episode. If you have safety concerns, please feel free to reach out. Pat Fossat is our safety administrator. He can be reached at [email protected]

4. School Safety and Orbie/Airsoft Weapons

There is currently a trend on TikTok and other social media platforms encouraging the use of Orbie or Airsoft weapons on school campuses. Remind your students that school is not the place for weapons or any facsimile weapons. These weapons cause significant disruption to the school. Please know that the school will follow the Alpine School District Safe School Policy. Alpine School District Policy 5182

5. ASPIRE MakeUps

We will be doing make-up ASPIRE Testing starting Tuesday, April 26. We need to test all of our Freshmen and Sophomores in each subject area. We apologize for the inconvenience of having students miss classes. We hope it is very short term. Parents can still call and opt students out of testing using this form. Here it is in Spanish.

6. ACT Prep Classes

Classes begin April 26th, 2:30-3:30 Mon. Tues. & Thurs. To sign up, pay $25 to the CVHS Finance Office. This class will prepare students for the June ACT test. Classes will be in Mr. Balser’s room C214.

7. Locker Cleanout

May 13th. Students need to clean out their lockers. Things left such as stickers will result in a locker fine. Please talk to your student and remind them to start cleaning those items off now.

8. **The finance office will be closed on May 20th to assess fines**

9. Yearbook

The last day to buy a yearbook online is May 20th and will end at 1:00 P.M. May 23rd yearbooks will not be sold at the finance office until that evening at the signing party. It is highly recommended that you purchase the yearbook and have all fees/fines paid before May 20th to avoid standing in line and possible frustration. Please see the school calendar for this and other activities on our school website.

10. Grade Finalization:

All student work needs to be completed on Canvas by Saturday, May 21, 2022, at 3:00 P.M. so teachers will have time to enter grades in and get these finalized.

11. Upcoming Dates to Remember:

Dear Aviators,

It is getting so close to the end of the year! Only five Fridays left of school! Please make note of the following:

1. Aspire Testing Has Begun

Aspire testing has begun and will take place through this week. Here is the modified bell schedule for that week to accommodate tests that take longer. Freshmen and Sophomores will be testing in their math, science, and language arts classes. Please send students this week well-rested and nourished. If you would rather opt your student out of testing, complete the following form and return it to the front office. Please allow for 24 to 48 hours for teachers to be aware of the opt-out. Blank forms can also be picked up in the front office. Students will test on their Chromebooks, so if there are any issues with the device, please have that taken care of by taking it to the end of the upper D-Terminal.

2. Chromebooks Reminder

We have had a great experience as a new One-To-One school this year. Be aware that students will need to have their Chromebooks checked for damage before the end of the year. We will be doing this in Jet Time classes. If you are a senior or will be moving to another school besides Cedar Valley High School, your Chromebook will need to be returned on or before May 19. Seniors will need to return their Chromebook before they can buy their Lagoon tickets. We plan to let all other students keep their Chromebooks over the summer. Students will need to keep the Chromebook charged, or put it in hibernation mode. Further instructions will be provided as we approach the end of the year.

3. Senior Activities

Seniors (and Parents of Seniors), it’s time to get your tickets for Senior Events! Tickets are available on myschoolfees.com or at the finance window. Please note that Lagoon Tickets cannot be purchased until your Chromebook has been turned in, and must be paid for at the finance office window to ensure that all fees and fines and Chromebooks are clear. All other tickets are already available on myschoolfees. Event tickets can be purchased separately or all at the same time and include:

Senior Dinner Dance: Thursday, May 19, Provo City Library Ballroom 6:30-10:30 pm, $28

Senior Sunset: Friday, May 20, CVHS Stadium, time TBA, No Charge

Senior Lagoon Day: Tuesday, May 24, Tickets @ Finance window after Chromebook turn-in, $50
