Meal Service Update

We are excited to announce that we are now able to resume the drive-thru meal program where meal kits are provided to all persons 18 years and under as well as students who meet CDE’s definition of a mental or physical handicap. Meal service will take place at all eight of our comprehensive high schools Monday Through Friday from 11:30 am-1:00 pm. Lunch and a “next day” breakfast will be distributed.

An authorized parent or guardian may receive up to six meal kits for children who are not present. Please provide a child(ren)’s identification when receiving more than six meal kits.

Please visit avfood.org for more information or email us at food@avhsd.org with any questions.

LCAP Survey for Parents

Every year we survey our stakeholders to get your feedback on our school’s culture, expectations, safety and other areas. This is a brief survey and provides us with the feedback we need to make decisions that make our schools great! Tell us how we are doing by clicking:

Peach Jar

Antelope Valley Union High School District uses an electronic flyer communication tool called “Peachjar.” To view school-approved digital flyers, simply click the Peachjar link on your school’s website homepage below. This “green” initiative saves our schools tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. On top of that, posting school flyers in this "electronic backpack" removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers.

Please click on your school name below, and then on a flyer, and an orange “Register” button will pop up. Follow the registration instructions to start receiving important information.

To ensure smooth delivery of this communication, we suggest you add school@peachjar.com (or your district’s selected “from email address”) to your email contacts. When you receive your first eflyer, be sure to click “always display images.” This system is used exclusively for distribution of school-approved flyers. Your email address will not be shared or used for any other purpose. Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure parents are well informed about school programs, activities, and events.
