Hello Wolf Pack Families,

T-6 days and counting until our first day of school! We are so excited to welcome back our WOLF PACK.

CVSD Staff Emails

Many CVSD emails are bouncing back or blocked as undeliverable. If you have reached out to staff via email and not heard back, it is likely that the response email did not go through.

Thank you for your patience as technology works to resolve the issue.

Student Schedules for 2022-2023

Schedules will be available in Power School on Wednesday, Sept. 7th, at 3:30 PM. Many sixth graders picked up their schedules at Sneak Peek. Small adjustments are still being made as we work diligently to balance all considerations.

PE Uniforms

T-shirts for PE are available through this "In-Touch" Link for $7. You will need your student's ID # to log in. That is the same # they have used since enrolling in CVSD (it's used for their Chromebook log in, library books, lunch accounts and it is the beginning of their cvsd356 email address.) If you need any assistance navigating In-Touch, please call our school office.


Note: "In-Touch" is the process to pay for the t-shirt. Your student will be able to say which size and pick up the t-shirt from their PE teacher (during the first full week of school.) If you prefer to stop into the office to pay for a shirt, you can. It will still be delivered to the student during class.
