Hello, Castle View Families:

We are so excited to launch Making A Difference (MAD) Week and to raise both money and awareness for an incredible organization: Save the Rainforest. I'm proud of our students for selecting a charity whose work has a global impact, and I am inspired and grateful that our community comes together each year to make our world better than how we found it.

All of the MAD Week festivities are pictured below-- please encourage your Sabercats to participate in this amazing opportunity for our community to give back.

As always, thank you for sharing your kids with us. It is our honor to serve them.

Parking Reminders!

If you have a student who is driving to school at CV, they must have a school issued parking permit displayed to park on campus. Student parking is behind the school, or in the yellow lined spaces up near the Baseball field. Do not park in the visitor lot, FPOD lot, or in Handicapped spaces (unless you have a placard).

Student safety and security in the parking lot is most important. Parking at Castle View is a privilege, and there are consequences for parking violations. If your student receives a parking violation, there will be a yellow copy left on their car stating the reason for the violation. Any questions regarding a violation should be addressed to the Security Office within 24 hours.

Each violation has a fine. The fine for parking without a permit displayed, in a non-designated

space/snowbank is $20.00 per violation. The fine for parking in the staff/visitor lots, CRMS lot, Fire Lane or Handicapped space is $50.00 per violation.
