Pick Up: As a reminder, please stay in your vehicle when you pick up your child and have them enter and exit your vehicle from the passenger side of the vehicle. We are having students cross between cars, and it is holding up traffic as well. We need everyone's cooperation to create a safe and efficient pick up.

Stay Home When Sick: We have seen a high number of students visiting the health office within the first hour of school. As a reminder, a child should be kept home when the child’s illness causes one or more of the following:

  • Elevated temperature (fever defined as >100 degrees will be sent home and can return after fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication)

  • Vomiting and/or diarrhea (can return after 24 hours with no vomiting/diarrhea)

  • Child feels unwell: cough, low grade temp, headache, sore throat, allergies that causes disruption and/or prevents the child from participating comfortably in learning.

  • An acute change in behavior: lethargy, irritability, persistent crying, difficulty breathing, or new rash.

When in doubt please contact your personal health care provider. We appreciate you working with us to promote the health and safety of our PV community.

PVHS Preschool Opportunity: We have a few openings in our Pleasant Valley High School Preschool. As part of our Child Development classes, we operate a preschool at the high school that is supervised by Mrs. Debbie Claussen but run by the high school students. PVHS Preschool enrolls 3 to 5-year-olds, and meets every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00am to noon starting September 20 and through May. The high school students develop learning experiences for the children in areas of art, math, science, music, storytelling, food and safety. We also stress socialization skills. If you are interested in enrolling your preschooler, please contact Debbie Claussen at claussendebbie@pleasval.org

Events Moved to Spring: In the interest of keeping school safe and limiting exposure for all people, we will revisit having our "We Are Riverdale Heights" and "Grandparents/Special Friends Day" in the spring of 2022. These events were previously scheduled for October.
