Principal's Message

Hello CV Family,

I say something similar to this in most editions of the newsletter, but it is hard to believe that we are two weeks away from spring break! As we move into these final weeks of the 3rd quarter, we encourage you to check in on your student’s academic progress through Infinite Campus. If you have questions that your student cannot clarify or if you just want to make sure you hear the answer from our staff, please feel free to reach out to our teachers. The end of the quarter is a busy time for all of us so please allow 24-48 hours for a response from our staff during the week. Our website can be a great resource for more information, such as navigating Infinite Campus, if you need assistance.

I only have one item I would like to focus on in my segment of the newsletter: ACT Testing. All juniors will take the ACT on Tuesday, March 1st. Although we have given the ACT in previous years school-wide, this year it is replacing AzMERIT/AzM2 as the state-mandated test. Participation by all juniors is essential. We will have an altered schedule that day for all 9th, 10th, and 12th graders. More information is available about ACT testing in this newsletter and I strongly encourage you to read through it.

Thank you for your continued support and please let us know how we can support you and your student!

Best regards,

Mr. Tyler Dumas

ECAP Presentation

ECAP: Four Year Plan

All students have seen a presentation about ECAP (Education-Career Action Plan) in their Advisory class. We have attached a copy of the slide show here for your reference. Part of the presentation shows students how to enter their four-year plan for classes into the Infinite Campus Academic Planning feature. ALL students must have their plan entered by May of this school year. It is from this planner that all course requests will be filled. Again, please review these choices with your child to ensure that it is accurate and complete. These plans may be changed as students learn more about themselves and their plans for the future. The classes entered for sophomore year will be locked in February.

If you or your child have any questions, we encourage you to contact the assigned counselor. We are happy to help in this process.

This is a non-profit that allows Juniors and Seniors to receive a prom dress free of charge so they can experience an amazing night without the financial stress. Please check your closets and ask your friends and family if they have any dresses they don't need. Donations are greatly appreciated and they can be brought up to the front office.

More information can be found at if you know of someone who could benefit from the Cinderella affair you can find more information at or you may email me with any questions at

On Jan. 7, 2022 Students from the Biomed program were trained in EKG's to assist in the Anthony Bates Cardiac screening day in hopes of saving lives.They received a certificate today for completing their training and were given results back from that day. We screened 64 youth and 59 adults for a total of 123 people. They checked patients in, took blood pressures and EKG's. It was a long yet rewarding day. Our results found that 39 had abnormal findings and 2 possible life threatening issues. In other words: 2 lives were saved! This could not have been possible without the continued push from the Anthony Bates Foundation to provide these services. Good luck in April as they will be competing in State Competitions in their perspective events.

Physical Education

Our PE Department is excited to work with all of our students in PHYSICAL EDUCATION, SPORTS TRAINING, DANCE, YOGA, and UNIFIED PHYSICAL EDUCATION classes.

PE, Dance, Yoga UNIFORMS:

Uniforms can be purchased in person in our CVHS Bookstore. All students need to have the proper uniform and a combination lock. Please contact Coach Cornell or your PE teacher if you have any questions.


We are excited to offer another year of "AFTER SCHOOL WEIGHTS" we will be opening the weight room after school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 2:20-3:00pm. Please see Coach Cornell or Coach Bishop for more information.


We will be offering lunchtime intramurals during both lunches for any student interested in being active. Intramurals will be held in either the mini or main gymnasium and occasionally outside (when the weather cools down). Please see Coach Cornell for more information.

SECURING BELONGINGS IN PE LOCKERS: Just a reminder that due to COVID we are not permitting our Physical Education student's to store their PE clothes in locker's overnight. We are asking our students to bring their PE clothes each day, change out in the locker room and securely LOCK ALL BELONGINGS in a large locker (provided) and then at the end of class period, take their sweaty PE uniform home and wash it for the next day. We believe this will cut down on the amount of bacteria in the locker rooms. Questions, please contact your student's teacher.

REGISTRATION for 2022-23:

We encourage all students to stay active and healthy by registering for one of our many Physical Education course offerings (please see informational flyer for more information).

stress information

1. Stress affects EVERYONE!

  • Some may cope more effectively and recover more quickly.
  • Stress may be short term or occurrences that continue over time.
  • 3 Types of Stress: 1). ROUTINE STRESS (every day work, school. etc. 2). TRAUMATIC STRESS (accident, disaster, death, injury, etc) 3). SUDDEN CHANGE STRESS: Stress brought on by sudden negative change (job loss, divorce, illness)

2. Not all stress is bad!

  • Can motivate people to perform at their best or "rise to the occasion" (high achieving people feel stress).
  • Can be "life saving" in times of danger (brain more "wired in").

3. Long term stress can harm health

  • Chronic / long term stress can damage the immune system, digestion, sleep, and reproductive issues.
  • Headaches, sleeplessness, sadness, anger, irritable behavior.
  • If Long term stress occurs heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and mental disorders can develop.


1. Recognize the signs of stress.

2. GET HELP! Talk to a health care provider.

3. Regular EXERCISE!

4. Relaxing activities (yoga, tai chi, gentle exercises)

5. Set PRIORITIES (what must get done and what can wait).... You don't have to do everything at once!

Library Updates


Library Information:

February is Teen Dating Violence Month. We have a display with information from the organization bloom365 that explains the difference between a healthy relationship and a hurtful one. The display shows the differences through images (a blooming flower compared to a dying flower) and examples (dating red flags). We have also put out nonfiction books related to the topic and fiction books that have characters in a relationship with red flags. We hope this information helps any of our students that may need it.


Does your Chromebook have trouble connecting to the wifi? Do you have a key that is not working? You don’t have to put up with it. Come to the library as soon as it happens and we will be able to fix it for you. You’ll get a loaner Chromebook if the repair takes more than a few minutes.

Digital Citizenship:

During Coyote Time on February 16, sophomores, juniors and seniors explored how to handle common digital dilemmas such as a friend texting too much or too late at night. They were shown the “Feelings and Options Technique”. When you are in an uncomfortable situation the “Feelings and Options Technique” shows you to IDENTIFY the people involved and the challenge, FEEL what is difficult for every person in the situation, IMAGINE options to handle the situation, and lastly SAY specifically what needs to be said based off of the first three parts of the technique. We hope this helps students when handling difficult digital situations.
