Principal's Message

Hello CV Family,


We are just a few days away from the first day of school! I’d like to welcome all of our new students and families and our returning students and families. As I head into my second year as the principal at Campo Verde, I want to share my excitement for what we have in store as a school community. I continue to be impressed with our students as well as their accomplishments over the summer and their presence on campus between clubs, activities, performing arts, and athletics. I am also extremely pleased with our new staff, and I believe our students and parents will be impressed with the student-centered teachers we have added to our team. The CV Family is looking forward to Tuesday, July 26th!


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:


  • Traffic: While I am looking forward to the road construction being completed around campus, I do not have an update on when they will be finished. I am hopeful it will be soon! Please be patient with each other as we all navigate the traffic, parking, and construction around campus. We will work with students the first week of school on arriving on campus as the additional construction combined with the start of the school year may impact students’ ability to arrive on time. My advice is to drop off early, take advantage of the bus routes available to you, and be good to one another!

  • Student IDs: As is described below and in previous communications, 7-12 students on all GPS campuses will be expected to wear IDs while on campus during school hours. The IDs will be given to students first hour on the first day of school. I would recommend that students find a lanyard of their choosing and bring it to school with them on the first day. Students will use the ID for their breakfast and lunch as well as to ride the bus. Campo Verde will uphold the expectation of students wearing IDs.

  • Breakfast and Lunch: Over the past two years, the Department of Agriculture has provided breakfast and lunch for students. The program has ended and students will need to purchase meals unless they bring their own food. More information can be found in the newsletter on how to access their accounts through Food and Nutrition.



We are looking forward to another great school year, and we appreciate your continued support!

Best regards,

Mr. Tyler Dumas

Principal

From the district

Dear GPS Secondary Parents and Families,

As we prepare for the beginning of a new school year we are introducing a number of initiatives designed to further promote the safety of our students and staff on campus. Thank you in advance for your support of our efforts. These initiatives are in addition to ongoing safety and security projects including the installation of integrated security cameras and secured entryways on all campuses. Please read on for key information to prepare for the new school year.

Student ID Badges Grades 7-12

For the 2022/23 school year students in grades 7-12 will be expected to wear their student ID badges at all times. Students will be provided with their badge and lanyard during the first weeks of school.

Key Information:

  • Please work with your students to ensure they bring their ID badge with them to school every day.
  • When students arrive at school they will enter through a secured door or gate and will be required to have their ID badge for entrance.
  • Bus riders will use the barcode on their ID badge for getting on and off the bus. As a parent you will be able to view the whereabouts of the bus using the Here Comes the Bus app, more details below.
  • Students will continue to use the barcode on their ID badges to access nutrition services (cafeteria), library, and bookstore.
  • If a student forgets their badge they will be issued a temporary sticker badge for a small $1 cost.
  • Cost for replacement badges (lost ID’s) will remain at $5.00.

Please expect further communication directly from your student’s school administration.

Here Comes the Bus App Grades 7-12

We are excited to announce the introduction of ‘Here Comes the Bus’, a new service for our families whose students ride the school bus.

With ‘Here Comes the Bus’ parents can:

  • View the real-time location of their student’s school bus
  • Ensure their student gets to the bus stop at the right time, every time
  • Know when and where their child boards or exits the bus - Students ID badges will be scanned when they board and exit the school bus.

Parents can easily download the ‘Here Comes the Bus’ app (please see the attached flier with instructions). Once downloaded select whether you would like email, push notifications or both, regarding your student’s school bus. You can also select what you would like to be notified of.

Video Intercom Entrances

As mentioned above a number of our schools, including all five comprehensive high schools and one elementary have secured entryways installed. The process of adding these to all campuses is ongoing.

For the start of the 2022/23 school year Elementary schools, Junior Highs, Gilbert Classical Academy, and Canyon Valley will have a video intercom buzzer system in place for secured entrance to the campus. Visitors will be required to show ID and state the purpose for their visit prior to gaining entrance to the campus. Thank you for your support.

As a school district we remain committed to the safety and security of our schools. For further information on all safety and security initiatives and updates please visit our website.

(*Please note that balancing of class size and minor adjustments may still be made by the registration office throughout the month of July.)


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 Monday, July 18th 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 25th, 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.

Parking Permit

Due to limited availability, parking permits are issued on a first come, first served basis to licensed senior, junior or sophomore. No permits will be issued to unlicensed drivers. Permits MUST be visible in any vehicle you drive to school. Any student caught parking on campus without a parking permit will lose their ability to get a parking permit. Students found parking on campus will receive a warning sticker. After the student has been issued three warnings, security will be putting a boot on the car. A parent or guardian will be required to meet with administration prior to removal of the boot.


Parking permits will not be prorated, the cost is $60.00 regardless of when the parking permit is purchased. When permits are sold out there will be a wait list, students wanting a permit will need to request to be placed on the waiting list and will be notified if a permit becomes available.


Make sure all of your fines/fees are paid by following these directions. This year, no permits will be issued to students with outstanding fines/fees.


After it is confirmed that the Campo student has no fines/fees, a parent or guardian will have to fill out this Google form. Filling out this form indicates that you are applying for a student parking permit at Campo Verde High School for the 2022-2023 school year. Filling out this form is a request and you are not guaranteed a permit. Your response can be accessed and edited at any time by clicking the Google form link found in this email, and in every newsletter for the upcoming year. It is your responsibility to update your form with any vehicle changes throughout the year. You may also do this by contacting the bookstore. If rules and regulations are not followed you will be subject to having parking privileges revoked. Your response will be put into a spreadsheet to be confirmed.


During their allotted time, students may come to the school with their license (photo copies not accepted) to purchase and receive their official 22-23 parking permit. Reminder, filling out the Google form does NOT guarantee you a permit. If you have fines/fees, no current license, or the Google form isn’t filled out correctly we will not be issuing you a parking permit.


July 15th, 18th, 19th & 20th 7-8am- JUNIORS may come to the school with their license to pay for and receive their official 22-23 parking permit.

No permits will be sold July 21st-25th. Sales will resume during school hours on the first day of school. Students may come in before school, after school, or during school lunches. No passes will be issued to miss any class time.


August 8th- SOPHOMORES may come in during school hours to pay for and receive their official 22-23 parking permit. Passes to class will not be issued so please plan accordingly.


While you are in the bookstore to purchase your permits, check out our new Thread™ lanyards and elastic wallets, shirts and sweatshirts, get new PE clothes, and SENIORS, grab a senior yard sign to celebrate this momentous year!


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email the bookstore Katie.Krause@gilbertschools.net

Health Office

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!
