“Soar to New Horizons” 2021-2022 School Theme

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.

After the graduation, please meet your graduates on the south side of the Marriott Center.

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.

Pre-approval process:

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 approved:
