PVA Reminders and Updates 11-20-19

Picture Re-Takes are tomorrow, Thursday, November 21st.  This picture session is for all students who were absent on picture day, new students who have enrolled since picture day, and anyone who is choosing to have their student’s picture retaken.  If you are electing to have your child’s picture retaken, you will need to email your homeroom teacher (K-5th) or your 4th period teacher (6th-7th) to let them know your child needs to be sent for a picture retake.  You also need to return the first set of pictures to school to be returned to Leonards. If you have questions about your pictures, please contact Leonards Customer Service at 1.800.215.4852

PVA Art Show and Jazz Band Performance On Thursday, November 21st, PVA will showcase individual student art that has been created by all students K-5th and those in 6th and 7th grade who are taking art as an elective.  Your student’s masterpiece will be framed and on display for viewing and purchase.   Proceeds from this event will benefit our art classes and art programs at Palm Valley Academy.  Our PVA Jazz Band will also be performing while you enjoy looking at student art.  This event will take place in the cafeteria and is an open-house format.  You may come to school anytime between 6:00-7:30 pm.   Cash or checks payable to Palm Valley Academy are preferred.

UPDATED CARLINE PROCEDURES AND POLICIES Thanks to parents, teachers, staff and safety patrols…CARLINE IS MOVING FASTER! We have streamlined our procedures and policies for our carline and things are moving and grooving. In an effort to continue improving, while still ensuring student safety, we wanted to reach out to our families to make sure everyone is aware of our updated Arrival and Dismissal Procedures.

Here are updates and policy reminders for MORNINGS:

  • Drop off starts at 7:55 am and students go to the cafeteria. PVA does not have staff at carline to monitor before 7:55 am, therefore students should not be released until the designated time.
  • On most days, we are finishing the morning carline by 8:25 am! YAY! If you arrive after 8:25 am, please park and walk your student to our front office to check them in. PVA teachers and staff are moving in at this time to start their day. Students arriving after 8:25 am are considered tardy.
  • It is against policy to leave younger children in vehicles while walking PVA students into school at any time.
  • If you choose to walk your child up to the door, please utilize the crosswalk closest to the entrance where a PVA adult is standing. Students MAY NOT be let out and left to walk across the crosswalk alone. If walking in, parents/guardians must accompany all students.
  • It is our policy that all adults remain in their vehicles while in carline at all times. Students will only exit cars through the passenger side. This is for safety reasons, along with being efficient in moving traffic through.
  • Please follow the entire traffic route of cars all the way around the parking lot to let your student out.

Here are updates and policy reminders for AFTERNOONS:

  • On most days, we are now completing the carline dismissal by 3:10 pm (2:10 pm on Wednesdays). Please make sure you plan accordingly. If you arrive after these times, we will have your student in the front office.
  • If you know your student is going to be late for whatever reason, please arrive later in the carline.
  • It is our policy that all adults remain in their vehicles while in carline at all times. Students will only enter cars through the passenger side. This is for safety reasons, along with being efficient in moving traffic through.
  • Please follow the entire traffic route of cars all the way around the parking lot to let your student out.
