A Message From The Principal


Welcome to Putnam Valley High School.  We have gotten off to a great start, and we hope to keep the momentum going all year!  This week we will meet with all of the students to review graduation requirements, learning opportunities, and behavioral standards.  Students will be advised that cell phones may only be used in designated areas of the building, and that in most cases, cell phones will be prohibited during class time. 

We ask that you support our cell phone policy by not calling or texting your child during the school day.  In the event of an emergency, please call the school office (845-526-7847, Ext. 1300), and we will arrange to have your child contact you immediately.

Your support and cooperation in this matter will be greatly appreciated.
I would like to advise you of some of the highlights for the month of September at PVHS:

  • Students will soon be taking pre-assessments in some of their courses that will be used by their teachers for diagnostic and instructional purposes.  These tests are part of the NYS Annual Professional Performance Review regulations for teachers and principals.  Student scores on the pre-assessments will not be applied to their quarterly or final grades.
  • Our annual Back to School Night will be held Tuesday, September 23rd, beginning at 6:00 PM.  After a brief orientation meeting in the PAC parents are invited to follow their child’s A – Day schedule.  This is an excellent opportunity to meet your child’s teachers, learn about the curriculum and expectations in the courses your child will be studying, and tour the building.  We look forward to meeting you on September 23rd.
  • Fall drama auditions will be held September 16th – September 19th.
  • Applications for the Science National Honor Society are due Friday, October 3rd.
  • Underclassmen School Photos, the Senior Class Group Photo, and Senior Portraits will be taken Wednesday, September 24th.
