Hello Wolf Pack Families,

We are 12 days away from our first day of school! We hope you are not only enjoying summer moments, but also gearing up for fall. We are excited to welcome our PACK.

Most families have already completed the Selkirk Attendance Survey. Just in case you missed it, here's the quick survey. Please take a moment to update us.

August Hours & Important Dates

  • Selkirk's office is open from 8:00-3:00.
  • Sneak Peek for 6th grade students is August 31, 9:00-12:00.
  • New 7th & 8th graders can meet with Pack Leaders from 12:00-12:30 on August 31st.
  • Football begins Sept. 6
  • Cross Country and Softball begin Sept. 7
  • The first day of school will be Thursday, September 8, 2022. There will be no late-start on the first day, so school begins at 8:10.
  • Back-to-School Night is Thursday, Sept. 15th at 6:00 pm.

Sneak Peek for incoming 6th Grade Students

August 31, 9:00-12:00. During Sneak Peek, sixth grade students will engage in activities to help them feel comfortable at school. It is intended for students only. They will interact with our 8th grade leadership students, get their schedules early, practice using their lockers, and meet some of their teachers!


Parents- there will be an brief, optional, parent meeting in the commons at 9:05. We would love to meet you, share some helpful information, and answer questions.


*Any incoming, new 7th or 8th graders can join leadership students on August 31st from 12:00-12:30.

CVSD Staff Emails

Many CVSD emails are bouncing back or blocked as undeliverable. If you have reached out to staff via email and not heard back, it is likely that the response email did not go through.

Thank you for your patience as technology works to resolve the issue.

Student Schedules for 2022-2023

Schedules will be available in Power School on Wednesday, Sept. 7th, at 3:30 PM. Sixth grade students can get their schedules early by attending Sneak Peek on August 31.

PE Uniforms

T-shirts for PE are available through this "In-Touch" Link for $7. You will need your student's ID # to log in. That is the same # they have used since enrolling in CVSD (it's used for their Chromebook log in, library books, lunch accounts and it is the beginning of their cvsd356 email address.) If you need any assistance navigating In-Touch, please call our school office.


Note: "In-Touch" is the process to pay for the t-shirt. Your student will be able to say which size and pick up the t-shirt from their PE teacher (during the first full week of school.) If you prefer to stop into the office to pay for a shirt, you can. It will still be delivered to the student during class.

Clarification of PE School-Supply Items

Please keep in mind that students should not bring spray deodorant or body spray, cologne, or perfume.
