Dear Aviators,

It’s unbelievable to believe that we are in our last week of April and May is just a few days away! It’s both a busy and exciting time as we plan to celebrate our end-of-the-year achievements with our students. I am happy to say that we made it through another challenging yet exciting year! Please make note of the following:

1. Senior Activities

Seniors (and Parents of Seniors), it’s time to get your tickets for Senior Events! Tickets are available on 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.

CVHS Senior Graduate Walk-Thru and Celebration at Local Elementary Schools

We are excited to have our local elementary schools host their alumni in a special graduation celebration. Elementary schools will welcome students in their caps and gowns on Wednesday, May 18th sometime between 1:15 p.m. -2 p.m. to walk through their former elementary school halls and be recognized. Specific timing and plans will be finalized for each school soon. Sign-ups will be available next week. Elementary schools participating are the following: Black Ridge, Cedar Valley, Eagle Valley, Hidden Hollow, Mountain Trails, Pony Express, and Ranches Academy.

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 on May 2. 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. Safety Week

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:

2-week calendar

Have a fantastic week!

Principal CVHS
