A Message From The Principal

August 2014

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to a new school year!  We are excited to provide you with all school-related information in a paperless fashion! Your PowerSchool account will be available for you to view on Tuesday, August 26th at 10:00 a.m.

A few simple clicks on our website will give you access to everything you need to know about the opening of the 2014-2015 school year.

The first day of the upcoming school year is Wednesday, September 3, 2013.  School will be in session daily from 7:50 a.m. until 2:35 p.m.  Please note that we do not have morning supervision for students.  All students will be allowed into the building starting at 7:36.  We will update this time once Clubs and morning activities begin.

As a reminder to our incoming 5th graders, we will be conducting new student orientation from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on August 28th in the Middle School gym.  Also, on August 28th, our 6th graders are welcome to come to school to practice opening your new hall lockers from 12:30 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.  This will provide the opportunity to find and open hall lockers as well as walking through a new schedule of classes.  Students may also leave any school supplies they have in their locker at that time.  The 6th grade is not mandatory, nor is there a group session.  Once you feel comfortable with your locker and schedule you may leave.

Now let’s get to your student information:

1) First, go to the Middle School website at http://www.pvcsd.org.  Please click on the Student/Parent Resources tab and then the grade level that your student will be entering.  They are listed under the Back to School tab in red.

2) Within the grade level site you will find links similar to what was mailed home in years past.  There are separate links provided for you to print and return forms that we need on file since we have not reached the level of electronic signatures to avoid all paper use.  For example, we need you to print, sign and return the Student Handbook/Code of Conduct/Laptop Handbook form.  We will not issue a laptop unless this form is completed in full and returned.  Feel free to bring this form on the first day of school.

3) The link PowerSchool Parent Access will provide your student class schedule as well as transportation information.  Please enter your User Name and Password.  Along the left side you will see a number of icons.  We ask that you focus on five tabs that will have all the information you need.

  • My Schedule: This tab will provide a printable copy of your child’s A and B day schedule.
  • Grades & Attendance: This tab provides the area where you will see the student’s grades and attendance throughout the year.  You will also see your locker number and locker combination here.
  • The Demographic Change tab needs to be reviewed and updated.  The center column of this form is the information we currently have on file.  If changes need to be made, please enter the new information in the right hand column.  Once all changes have been made, please click on the “submit” button located in the lower right hand corner of the page.  We will then confirm and update your Demographic Information.  We need this information to be current and correct.  We use this information in case of emergency.
  • Transportation information is located under the tab that looks like a small bus. This will provide you with your bus number and any additional transportation needs.  The link to the bus schedule is on top of this information.
  • Credentials – This will provide you with user names and passwords for laptops and online subscriptions used throughout the year including My Big Campus.

Once you finish, please click on the Logout tab in the upper right hand corner.  Please DO NOT share your User Name or Password with anyone.

As the year progresses we will continue to provide you information in a paperless fashion.  We will provide step-by-step directions and reminders as to how and when to access this information.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact the main office.

As summer vacation comes to a close, we urge you to spend time with family and friends.  We look forward to seeing you on September 3rd.

Sincerely,

Edward J. Hallisey
Principal
