This email has lots of information for the end of the school year. Please read to the end, especially graduation information for Seniors. It is hard to believe we are down to only one more Friday left before school is out. This is the home stretch for getting to the end of the year. Please continue to check skyward and encourage your students to communicate with their teachers if they have questions on assignments.

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.

Graduation Cultural Expression Update:
The Alpine district sent out an email regarding the district’s decision to allow cultural expression at graduation. Students may wear objects that represent their ancestral heritage. We received additional information from the district noting guidelines etc. Please note the following:
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.
Please reach out via email to the Administrator who oversees your child based on their last name if you would like an appointment to get items approval:

4. Chromebook Update
Parents, we apologize for the email blast last week. Remember, Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors will keep their Chromebooks over the summer, but they still need to be checked for any problems. At this point all Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors who have not had their Chromebooks checked will be assessed a fine. They can report to the front office to have it checked and that fine will be cleared. All Seniors or any students not attending Cedar Valley High School next year will need to return their Chromebooks by Thursday, May 19 to avoid a fine. Students will return their device to the end of D-Terminal. Questions about Chromebooks can be directed to Pat Fossat at [email protected].
