Principal's Message

Hello CV Family,

I hope you have had a great start to 2022! It has been busy on campus and it doesn’t look like the excitement will be slowing down. There is some great information in the newsletter and I wanted to highlight important points. Below are just three topics I wanted to bring to your attention. Have a great week and as always, please reach out to us if we can be of assistance!


Registration: Registration for the 2022-2023 school year is underway! Earlier this month we shared a registration newsletter with you and students have been selecting courses during Coyote Time. Please utilize the link below for more information on registration for next year!

CVHS Registration Website


Road Closure: Please see the information below regarding the closure of the exit of the parking lot from the front office onto Germann Road. Any traffic that enters into the parking area by the front office will have to return to Quartz Street to enter Germann Road due to construction. A map is shared in the newsletter and we have sent an email reminder and another reminder is set to go out this weekend. The closure is expected to last until the end of March.


Health Updates: There have been a few changes to COVID-19 protocols that were communicated by the district. Please note the revised guidelines on quarantine and isolation that are shared in the newsletter. Also, a new dashboard is in place that is site-specific. It is important that students and staff that return earlier do abide by the terms of the early return. Please see the section below for more information. The new dashboards can be found on this link as well. GPS COVID-19 Health Services Information


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


Best regards,

Mr. Tyler Dumas

**IMPORTANT: From District**

Dear GPS Parents and Families,


Changes to COVID General Exposure Notification Process

In light of the current high volume of COVID notifications, and the significant impact this is having on school personnel time, the following changes will be implemented for notifying our families of general class and bus route exposure to COVID-19. The goal is to provide easy access for our parents and families to up-to-date information while supporting our schools to focus on educating and supporting our students.

General class exposure email notifications will no longer be sent out to families as of Thursday, January 20, 2022. Instead, families will be able to view information regarding potential exposure to positive COVID cases, by class and bus route, on the district website at their convenience.

Please note, if your student is required to quarantine you will receive communication directly from your campus.

Each school has a ‘Notification Dashboard’ on the district website that will be updated daily identifying the same key information that is currently included in the letters:

  • The class of student’s that were potentially exposed using the teacher’s name, and ‘hour’ if applicable, as identifiers

  • and the last date the person who has tested positive for COVID was in class.

Bus route notifications will also be posted on the website on a ‘Transportation Notification Dashboard’.


Thank you for your continued support.

This is the exit from the front office. Access to the front office will still be available, but the only exit will be to return back out to Quartz Street. Please see the graphic below:

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.

Coyote time

January 12th and 19th the 9th, 10th, and 11th graders explored programs on campus by speaking to teachers, attending our Curious Coyote Club Fair, reviewing our courses offered, and mapping out their four-year plan to solidify their course registration for the 2022-2023 school year. Students will meet with their counselors between the dates of January 22nd- February 25th.

Seniors will spend time applying for our January scholarships. Check out our CVHS January Scholarship list. We ask that each senior applies for at least two local scholarships and students who have different plans may explore opportunities available after high school on our College and Career website.

PSAT Score Interpretation: Counselors visited Sophomore English classrooms last week to hold a PSAT interpretation session. This included making College Board accounts, discovering AP Potential, and connecting with Khan Academy. This presentation can be viewed here. The presentation is also posted for student reference in their Sophomore Google Classroom.

PreACT Test Results: For those students who took the PreACT on January 8th, score reports will be available in approximately 1 month. Student score reports are mailed to the school and will be distributed to students in a timely manner.

Senior Credit Checks: Counselors met with seniors in their English class last week to discuss credits. The purpose of this one-on-one meeting was to ensure seniors are in the appropriate classes to meet their graduation requirements, or if deficient, have a plan to make up credits. We also discussed post-secondary plans and answered any questions that students had.

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.


AFTER SCHOOL WEIGHTS:

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.


LUNCHTIME INTRAMURALS:

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).

Library Updates

*********************************

Library Information:

Circulation has been up, up, up this month! With new year's resolutions and independent reading projects, students have been busy checking out books. We have three new displays up this month. One is full of brand new books, one has nonfiction and fiction books related to Martin Luther King Jr. and the third display has true crime books.

Chromebook:

For Chromebooks to run smoothly on campus, students should NOT try another internet source (like Chromebook). This causes the Chromebook to be rendered useless until a tech can reprovision it. Please ask your students to try powering down and powering back up until the wifi is back. Sometimes, it may take up to four or five times of powering down and back up for students to be reconnected. Please have patience.

Digital Citizenship:

Help your teen navigate viral social media stunts. In the linked article, learn why teens participate in these challenges and how you can help them make responsible decisions.
