It's That Time Again! Wacky Weather Might Be Coming Soon

Are you prepared?


Do you have a backup plan if schools are delayed, closed or release students earlier than expected? For example, could you:

  • Adjust your work schedule?
  • Hire a babysitter or take the kids to daycare?
  • Ask a friend, neighbor or family member to watch the kids?

The weather can change quickly and without warning, making it difficult or impossible to follow regular routines. It’s important to be prepared—long before the storm hits.

How we notify families

  • Automated Phone Calls & Emails: Please keep your contact information updated in Skyward (Family Access) or contact your school office. On weather days, calls begin going out at 5:30 a.m. to families who have not opted out.
  • Information Line: (360) 885-5343 (Updated by 6:00 a.m. on impacted days).
  • District Website: Bookmark for easy access.
  • Social Media Accounts
  • Flash Alert: Sign up for email alerts or download the mobile app for updates about emergency and non-emergency issues.
  • TV and radio stations, local newspapers

Weather-related late starts are two-hours!

Battle Ground Public Schools administrators consider many factors when determining school closures, and notify families only if there is a change to the school schedule.

Patron Tour of Battle Ground Public Schools comes to PVP

On Thursday, November 14th, members of the Battle Ground Public Schools community visited schools in the district. Pleasant Valley Primary was a the last stop on their tour! It was fun to share what happens daily at PVP with members of our community.

Attendance Matters

This year, Pleasant Valley Primary is focusing on increasing student attendance rates. While we realize that some family vacations and appointments cannot be scheduled at other times, we ask that families be mindful that student attendance at school is very important. Please read the information below. Students missing more than an average of two days per month (18 days per school year) are considered chronically absent. This affects how well they learn and we miss them when they are gone!

Thank you for helping your child to be successful at PVP!

November Second Step Focus - Emotion Management!

For the next month, our schoolwide theme is emotion management. In our morning announcements we’ll be reminding students to recognize their own emotions, to use their calming strategies when necessary, and to communicate their feelings.

Second Step lessons specifically teach about emotion management. Here are some Home Links describing why emotion management is important and including fun activities to do with your child to help him or her identify feelings and practice emotion management. We hope you find them helpful.

Learn and Play Drop In Program!

Woooo Hoooo ...Classrooms Filled Their Beaver Bravo Jar!!!

Every time a student is recognized for displaying positive behaviors that meet one of our school wide expectations, they receive a Beaver Bravo. They then put this Bravo into their classroom jar and with every individual positive behavior that is recognized, classroom jars soon fill up. Once full, the class dumps their jar into our school wide jar located in the main office which results in a spirit day celebration as soon as our school jar is full. What happens as a result of all of these collective positive behaviors? They ALL help shape Pleasant Valley Primary into the amazing community that we all have the privilege of being part of every single day!

If you see any Beaver BRAVO tokens at home, please send them back to school!
