Principal's Message

Welcome Back CV Family,


I am very excited about the opportunity to return to Campo Verde to lead and serve within our community. Campo is a very special place, and I understand the expectations and level of excellence that we all strive to achieve here. Our plan is to exceed those expectations, reach more students, and serve our mission of Every Person, Every Day! This newsletter is an excellent source of information and is linked on our website for you to go back and refer to at your convenience. Typically I will highlight important information that is contained within the newsletter or information I want to personally share with our school community in the format of Three Dots from Mr. Dumas.


Three Dots from Mr. Dumas:


  • This newsletter has a great deal of information, but more detailed information will be coming before we begin the school year. Please look for the second back-to-school newsletter in the very near future.

  • Student schedules should be “live” in Infinite Campus (IC). More detailed information is below and should be reviewed if you have any questions or concerns.

  • Link Crew’s Freshman Orientation is 8/3 from 7:30 am to 12:15 pm. All incoming students should take advantage of this opportunity to become acquainted with our campus, make connections with other students, teachers, and student leaders. More information is available below.


We are here to serve and support our students, and we are looking forward to the 2021-2022 school year. If we can ever be of any assistance, please feel free to contact us.


Best regards,

Mr. Tyler Dumas

Principal

Online Schedule Change Form

Please review your schedule. If a correction is needed, please fill out the Schedule Change Form.

Our goal is to efficiently and equitably meet the needs of each of our students. Please remember that counselors are unable to make lunch and teacher changes.


The online schedule change form will close on Thursday, July 29th in order to finalize schedules for the first day of school. If there is a scheduling conflict beyond this date, it will need to be addressed directly with the student’s counselor on the first day of school during the period of the conflict.


First Day of School Schedule Procedures

All students should access Infinite Campus on or after Monday, August 2nd, to print or screenshot updated schedules. This is the schedule that will be used on the first day of school.

If a student does not have access to Infinite Campus, students can pick up a printed copy of their schedule in the library on the first day of school.


Release Time Forms

Students that have a release time on their schedule will need to complete the Release Time Form and return it to the front desk within the first week of school. The Release Time Form is available at the front desk.

Senior Yearbook Pictures

Welcome, Class of 2022!


The first step of your Senior journey is to have your portrait taken for the yearbook. The yearbook’s deadline for Senior pictures is September 4, 2021. In order to meet this deadline, we have partnered with Lou Coopey Photography in Mesa, AZ to take your yearbook photos.

There are two options: one is $40, the other is free. Please read through this letter completely for details then choose the option that works best for you. If you have questions, please e-mail me at jeremy.zona@gilbertschools.net

OPTION 1 ($40.00 deposit, $50.00 credit to account)

Schedule an appointment with Lou Coopey to have your photo taken at their Mesa studio located at 202 N Lindsay Rd, Mesa, AZ 85213 before September 1, 2021.

Key information about Option 1:

  • A $40 deposit will be collected at the time of scheduling.

  • This deposit, along with a $10 credit ($50.00 total) will be applied to each account to purchase portraits and services offered by Lou Coopey.

  • Return your proof book within 30 days and receive a refund of your $40.00 deposit.

  • After 30 days, the $10 complimentary credit will expire.

  • The $40 remains on account and can be used for any senior portrait purchase.

  • Visit www.loucoopey.com then click on the large red banner across the top to book your appointment.

To ensure the safety of all Seniors, the following protocols are in place for the photo session:

  • All procedures will be as contact-free as possible.

  • The studio will be limiting the number of appointments per day to allow for social distancing.

  • Face masks and hand sanitizer are recommended, but not required.

  • Seniors will need to come dressed to impress (Collared shirt, tie, suit jacket, dress, and/or professional blouse).

  • It is recommended that Seniors bring their own clothing. However, if necessary, the studio will provide loaner jackets, ties as needed.

  • The loaner cap and gown are sanitized on-site in commercial dryers between appointments per CDC sanitation requirements.

  • All studio services beyond the sitting (scheduling, ordering pictures, and paying fees) will be conducted online.

  • Senior sessions will include 9-14 poses on a variety of backgrounds including Cap & Gown photos for graduation.

  • All post-sitting contact will be done online (choosing the yearbook pose, ordering photos, and any additional payment.)

OPTION 2 ($0.00, free, cap & gown pictures may be taken if permitted)

Take your Senior yearbook photo on campus during School Picture Day.

Key information about Option 2:

  • A limited number of poses will be taken on the yearbook background only.

  • Dates and times for the on-campus option will be announced.

  • Students must be dressed to impress (collared shirt, tie, dress, and/or professional blouse) for their senior portrait.

For both options, students must follow the school dress code. Clothing should not be transparent, too revealing, and must be free of logos/signage/text. Headwear is not permitted (except in the case of religious or medical purposes).


Sincerely,

Jeremy Zona
