Principal's Update 1/29/2023



Sea Kings Families,
A busy week at PVIS, but a busy that produces results. Both the boys' and girls' basketball and soccer teams played Parras Intermediate School and Chadwick. I am so proud of our Sea Kings. Every single one of our athletes competed fiercely and showed excellent effort.
Wednesday we held our second School Site Council Meeting, thank you to all that attended. During this meeting, we reviewed our Comprehensive School Safety Plan and gained approval. The plan will now go to the Board of Education for final approval. You can find the final version on our website next month.

dfThursday we held our annual STEM robot float parade in the MPR. Students built their own robot floats and programmed them to the coordinates of the parade route and let them fly.
Each team of two was judged on engineering and creativity with awards given to the best in those categories. An additional "Principal's Award" was also awarded to a team.
Our STEM students did a wonderful job and continue to impress with their abilities. STEM is an invaluable program in our school and District- thank you to PEF, Boosters, and PVPUSD for your support.
This week, we celebrate YELLOW RIBBON WEEK, details below. Please join us in celebrating kindness and showing compassion in our community. 
Have a great week and Be Well.

A Message From Our School Nurse..

Students are not permitted to have in their possession or take any medication (either prescription or over the counter) at school unless the necessary form, Request to Take Medication at School, is completed by the physician and parent. Students may take medication during the school day only if it is necessary that they have it to remain in school. This applies to both prescription and over-the-counter medications. 

Parents (or other adults designated by the parent) may also bring medication to school and administer it to their child.
