Hello CV Family,
We are excited to welcome our students back to campus and the Class of 2027 to the CV Family! We are here to serve our mission of Every Person, Every Day! I am very pleased with our staff and our direction as a school and community. We are here to serve and support our students, please contact us if there is a means by which we can better serve your student. This newsletter is an excellent source of information and is linked to 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:
Dress Code and Student IDs: GPS has a new dress code policy which is shared below. Part of the policy is that students are expected to wear their IDs when on campus during the school day. On the first day of school, your student’s ID will be in their first-hour teacher’s classroom with a lanyard and an ID badge holder. If any students do not have their ID, the classroom teacher will assist them with our process of getting a temporary ID. Permanent IDs will be given to students on picture day.
Link Crew’s Freshman Orientation is 7/24 from 7:30 am to 12:15 pm. All incoming students should use this opportunity to become acquainted with our campus and connect with other students, teachers, and student leaders. More information is available below.
Student schedules should be “live” in Infinite Campus (IC). More detailed information below should be reviewed for any questions or concerns.
We are looking forward to another great school year, and we appreciate your continued support!
Mr. Tyler Dumas

Tentative student schedules are now available to view in the Student Portal.
Click here for instructions to our Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Students and parents are encouraged to utilize the Infinite Campus App to access their schedule. (*Please note that balancing of class size and minor adjustments may still be made by the registration office throughout the month of July/August.)
Online Schedule Change Form
Please review your schedule. If a correction is needed, please fill out the Schedule Change Form. We are asking that you do not email counselors directly for schedule changes, but instead use the form, providing a reliable email and phone number for communication purposes. 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 Wednesday, July 19th 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, July 24th, 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.

Link Crew Freshmen Orientation
In keeping with tradition our CV Link Crew Program is hosting Freshmen Orientation on Monday, July 24th from 7:30 am - 12:15pm. Students must bring a copy of their schedule to orientation which can be previewed through the student portal from their phones.
**Bus Transportation is available. Routes are found in the portal closer to the start of the school year. Check back often before school starts as bus routes are subject to change. Participants are picked up at their designated location and time and will have transportation home after our orientation.**
Where: All students will meet in the main gymnasium at 7:30 am
Why: We encourage every incoming 9th grader to attend freshmen orientation to meet their assigned link crew leaders, meet other new incoming freshmen, learn about The Campo Way & walk their class schedule before school starts.
If your student is unable to attend they will be contacted by a Link Crew leader the first week of school.
New Student to Campo and not a freshman? Meet in the front office classroom (113) at 9:00 am to meet your Link Crew Leader and to tour the campus. The campus tour and introduction will take place from 9-10 am.

Senior Yearbook Pictures
Class of 2024!
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 6, 2022. In order to meet this deadline, we have partnered with Southwest Portraits in Tempe, AZ to take your yearbook photos.
There are two options: Please read through this letter completely for details and choose the option that works best for you.
Schedule an online appointment with Southwest Portraits to have your portrait taken at their Tempe studio located at 5450 S Lakeshore Dr. Suite 108, Tempe, AZ 85283 before the September deadline.
Key Information about Option 1:
- Senior Portraits can be taken at the Southwest Photography Studio by calling 480-222-1199 to set an appointment. We had an error with the mailers, however, appointments can still be made by calling.
- It is recommended that Seniors bring their own clothing. However, if necessary, the studio will provide loaner jackets, ties, and drapes as needed.
- All studio services beyond the sitting (scheduling, ordering pictures, and paying fees) will be conducted online.
- The Yearbook portrait sessions will include 9-14 headshots on blue/brown tone background to select one for the yearbook.
- A deluxe session is offered with up to three outfits, including the yearbook outfit, inside and outside in each outfit.
- Portraits will be shown immediately after the session for the students/parents to choose the yearbook portrait and see available options (choosing the yearbook pose, ordering photos, and any additional payment.)
Take your senior yearbook photo on campus on senior picture day which takes place on August 1st, 2nd, and the final date of September 6th in the auditorium lobby.
Key Information about Option 2:
- A limited number of poses will be taken on the yearbook background only.
- Students must be dressed to impress (collared shirt, tie, dress, and/or professional blouse) for their senior portrait.
Dress Code Note: For both options, students must dress to impress (collared shirt, tie, suit jacket, dress, and/or professional blouse/professional wear). Clothing must be free of logos/signage/text and should not be transparent or too revealing. Headwear is not permitted (except in the case of religious or medical purposes).
Students are required to wear formal attire that would follow the school dress code. Please avoid plunging necklines strapless attire, or spaghetti straps. Darker colors will look best on the senior portrait background.

Retake day will be September 6th
Club Photo Day is February 15th.
Senior Panoramic Photo Day is TBD.

If you were told your student needs immunizations please turn into the Health Office before school starts. All medications must be checked into the Health Office. Students are not allowed to carry medication with them at school unless the use of the following medication is required: epi-pens, inhalers, and diabetic emergency medication. However, these items must FIRST be checked in and accompanied by the appropriate form at the Health Office.
Medications may only be brought to school by a parent/guardian or another adult over the age of 18. All medication will be in the properly labeled container from either the pharmacy for prescription medication or in the original container for over-the-counter medication. Make sure to check the expiration date. Narcotic pain medication will not be administered at school.
If a medication needs to be administered daily or is a prescription medication, a “Request for School Administration of Medication” form must be completed by both the parent/guardian and doctor (dated after 07/01/2022) before medication may be administered at school. This includes any over-the-counter medication that indicates it is not to be given to anyone under the age of 18, usually medication containing aspirin (example: Excedrin). Here is a LINK to the Health Services Form.
Please contact the Health Office with any questions. Thank you!
Dress Code-- NEW
Preview the new guidelines for the district-wide dress code to be enforced at all campuses. As a friendly reminder, school IDs are mandatory and a required dress code expectation.
Replacement IDs $5
Temporary IDs $1
Lunch detention is issued with 5 or more printouts for school IDs.
Be proactive and always carry a backup permanent ID in your backpack!
Mandatory School IDs
Temporary ID cards will be issued on the first day of school. Students will be expected to wear their ID badges at all times. This is part of our campus dress code and security.
Transcript Orders Through Parchment
Campo is now using Parchment to order and send out all transcripts. Parchment is a vendor that electronically sends transcripts upon a student's request and is relatively self-service. However, to utilize this option moving forward, all of our students will need to create a free Parchment account. While the account is free, there is a charge if the request is for an official transcript and is paid by the student at the time of ordering.
Parchment uses the highest security standards and the service complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). This service is available from approximately 12 a.m. to 11 p.m. Pacific Time.
As it gets closer to the start of school, each student will receive an invitation to register for Parchment. Check out the image to see an example email from Parchment.
