Message from the Principal

Good evening Cavaliers,

Today we honor and remember those who have served and currently serve in our armed forces. Especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice and gave all, so that we and our children can enjoy freedom. Join me this Memorial Day in sending a heartfelt THANK YOU to those who made that ultimate sacrifice

As we begin our sixth week of distance learning, we also begin to wind down the school year. You will be receiving important year-end information that you will need to close out the year and prepare for next year. Thank you for those students that were able to pick up their PE and Dance attire last week. Tomorrow we will continue with our drive-up PE pick ups service for 8th grade students. Please see the attachment with detailed information below.

The last day of Distance Learning for 8th grade students will be Friday May 29th. We will begin the 8th grade check-out process on this date. Students moving on to ninth grade and those students that will not be returning to CVM next year will need to turn in their iPad on Friday May 29th. I have attached instructions for you to follow. Again, this is only for 8th grade students and those students who will not be returning to CVM next year. All other 7th grade students that will return to CVM next year will keep their device through the summer.

Starting on May 1st, we will begin textbook, instrument and Club TC uniform collection. Details on the procedures will be sent later this week. The last day of Distance Learning for 7th graders will be Thursday June 4th, and final grades will be available through Infinite Campus on Friday June 5th..

Finally, we will continue with our SUHSD Free Meal Service for students. Please see the information in the flyer below.

Thank you for your continued partnership during these difficult times. I appreciate you entrusting us with your student's education and I know that we will continue to be #cvmstrong!

Go Cavaleirs!
