Principal's Message

Hello CV Family,

Another busy week is upon us as we are deep into registration for 2022-2023, the end of winter athletics, the start of the spring season, as well as progress report time! Below are 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!

Coyote Preview Night: Our traditional preview night is Monday, 2/7, starting at 6 pm. The traditional meeting by all parents and students in the auditorium has been restructured. We have structured the evening so incoming parents and students have as much time to connect with programs and explore the options we offer at Campo. Pre-sessions are available for Honors/AP Capstone in the auditorium and for Special Education in room 113 both beginning at 5:30 pm. Please note that there will also be programs electing to conduct mini sessions throughout Coyote Preview Night. More information regarding Coyote Preview Night and registration for all students can be found at the following link: CVHS Registration Website

Road Closure: I have been sharing that the road will be closed for a few weeks based upon information from the Town. It looks as if that should be happening this week and now the timeline has been moved to late April for it to be opened back up. This only impacts those that are attempting to leave the front office parking lot. Be patient with one another!

CV is a Closed Campus: We have had a few questions regarding the status of our campus so I felt it was important for us to clarify that we are a closed campus. Students are not allowed to leave campus unless they are checked out by a parent or guardian or if they have release time.

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.

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

February 9th

Students and teachers will participate in an activity that is structured like a 21 questions game. Each question will have a special guest from our campus present their answers, teachers will respond, and then students will share within their teams their responses. This get-to-know-you activity is to strengthen connections between peers and teachers.

February 16th

Our freshman will participate in a Link N' Learn hosted by Link Crew and all other students will engage in discussions surrounding Digital Citizenship.

PSAT Score Interpretation

Counselors visited Sophomore English classrooms a few weeks ago 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 soon. PreACT states the turnaround time is roughly 1 month. Student score reports are mailed to the school and will be distributed to students in a timely manner.

AP Exam Registration

Students enrolled in second semester AP Government and AP Microeconomics need to register and pay for their exams by February 25th. This is the final deadline for ALL AP exams. If you forgot to register by the priority deadline of November 1st for any first semester or year long AP Exams, you can STILL REGISTER with a $40 late fee. Please follow the steps below.

NHS is excited to announce that so far this year, we have logged over 1,200 hours of community service! This month, the National Honor Society is selling Valentine Grams! For $3 or $5 you can get that special someone a unique gift this Valentine’s Day. They will receive a touching note and either a carnation or a rose. They will even be hand-delivered by cupid himself! All of the profits will go towards a local animal shelter. NHS also had a dessert night at Swirl-It during February that was a big success! Thanks to everyone that helped out!

Drop-in after-school tutoring will be back for 2nd Semester! NHS tutors are available every Tuesday and Thursday, 2:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., in the library. Hope to see you there!

Key CLub

We have a wonderful opportunity for you to give back to the community. Now through the end of February, Campo’s Key Club is sponsoring a dress drive called the Cinderella Affair. This is a non-profit that allows Juniors and Seniors to receive a prom dress free of charge so they can experience an amazing night without the financial stress. Please check your closets and ask your friends and family if they have any dresses they don't need. Donations are greatly appreciated and they can be brought up to the front office.

More information can be found at if you know of someone who could benefit from the Cinderella affair you can find more information at or you may email me with any questions at

Thank you!

Each year, CVHS Key Club with Gilbert Public Schools recognizes students who have made a commitment to go above and beyond to serve in the community. Students who volunteer 200 or more hours of verified service throughout their high school career may be recognized at graduation in the program and with an Honor Cord. There are four different award levels:

  • White (200-399 hours),
  • Green and White (400-599 hours),
  • Double Copper (600-799 hours)
  • and a Service with Distinction Multi-Colored cord (800+ hours).


STUDENTS (not parents) need to complete the application and submit required documentation by 12:00 pm on Friday, March 4th, 2022.




On Jan. 7, 2022 Students from the Biomed program were trained in EKG's to assist in the Anthony Bates Cardiac screening day in hopes of saving lives.They received a certificate today for completing their training and were given results back from that day. We screened 64 youth and 59 adults for a total of 123 people. They checked patients in, took blood pressures and EKG's. It was a long yet rewarding day. Our results found that 39 had abnormal findings and 2 possible life threatening issues. In other words: 2 lives were saved! This could not have been possible without the continued push from the Anthony Bates Foundation to provide these services. Good luck in April as they will be competing in State Competitions in their perspective events.

Hi Coyotes,

Just wanted to send out the link for the 2022-23 TOYBOX registration in case any of you have a 3-5 year old you would like to register.

Please let me know if you have any questions & feel free to share the link with any family or friends that might be interested.

Heidi Resh, M. Ed.

FCCLA Early Child Education Adviser


FCCLA got to go to South Valley Junior High for a 'recruitment' event to present students with some valuable information about classes that Campo has to offer. Toybox and Culinary Arts are represented below.

japanese club

This month, Japanese Club learned how to play some traditional Japanese Games—Kendama and Ohajiki. Kendama is a wooden toy with a handle (ken) and ball (tama). The objective is to land the ball on the big cup, small cup, smallest cup and the sword (spike).

Ohajiki is a traditional game that uses flat, dime-sized marbles. To play, participants spread out the flat marbles, call their shots by drawing a line between 2 pieces and shoot by flicking the shot piece at the target piece. Winner has the most pieces.

Captions starting top left: a kendama, ohajiki, Emma “Poppy” Brooks in action, Eiza Standford Kendama Champion 2022, Ty Holbrook with smooth moves, Jake Stoltenberg and Cody Crosland battling, Corea Kim with a group win, Tylan Merriam with a mean ohajiki shot.

Join us for our next meeting March 3 2:30-3:30 for Japanese Fashion.

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.


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.


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:

With the start of a new month, comes all new book displays to inspire our students. Of course we have a display full of romance books since Valentine’s Day is coming up. And February is also Black History Month so we have put together a display that contains nonfiction books featuring successful African-Americans. Students will see some familiar faces (Barak Obama, LeBron James, Kamala Harris, Venus and Serena Williams) and possibly some unfamiliar faces (Zora Neale Hurston, Marian Anderson, Ella Fitzgerald). Books and inspirational quotes fill the display!


If a student is having problems with his/her Chromebook, the place to go is the library. We will put it in for repair and give the student a loaner Chromebook until the original is fixed.

Tip: If students are having trouble connecting to their home wifi, have them sign out of their Chromebook while they are on campus. Then have them sign in at home to connect to the home wifi. This should help make for a smoother transition onto a wifi network.

Digital Citizenship:

Many devices and platforms have tools to help us as users monitor our screen time. This is something you can look into for yourself and then model with your teens. Both Apple and Google have family settings to help you as a parent monitor usage of your family members as well. Take a look at this information regarding Google’s Family Link App and Apple’s Screen Time feature to see if it would be helpful for you and your family.
