We hope you have your cameras ready - we’re going to be asking our parents to submit their “first day” photos to us again this year. We hope to capture the emotion and excitement of the first day back to school by creating a photo gallery on our website and on Facebook. Feel free to download and print the "first day" signs we've created for this year. 

Photo requests: Submit a maximum of two images from your day. Please make sure the images are in JPG format and are no bigger than 2 MB in size and at least 300 DPI in resolution. In sending us your photos, you will agree to allow your child’s image to appear online or be used in PVSD publications.

You may send photos to jlester@pvsd.org. We look forward to seeing what you send!

BUS INFORMATION AVAILABLE IN HAC
Bus information -- such as your child’s stop, arrival times and bus number -- will be available on the “Demographic” tab for all students. Please be sure to check this section regularly before school begins as updates may occur while our bus company modifies routes to make sure they are the most efficient.

Parents/guardians of kindergarteners and first-graders who are new to the district will receive copies of teacher letters via mail the week of Aug. 12. Everyone else will be able to view teacher assignments via HAC and may view teacher letters through the teacher’s profile page on www.pvsd.org.

2019-20 Instructional Calendar Approved

posted Jan 16, 2019, 10:47 AM by Jessica Lester   [ updated Jan 16, 2019, 10:47 AM ]

calendar
The Perkiomen Valley School Board approved the 2019-20 instructional calendar at the Jan. 14th business meeting. The calendar features an Aug. 26, 2019, start for school, and a June 11, 2020, end date.

The calendar for next year is very similar to the current calendar, featuring parent-teacher conferences the week of Thanksgiving (meaning a full week off for students), and a winter break spanning Dec. 23 to Jan. 1.

Half-days have been included throughout the calendar year to accommodate in-service opportunities for professional and support staffs. Spring break will begin April 8 (which is an in-service day for graduation projects) and continue through April 13.

Graduation is planned for June 5, 2020. Three snow days have been built into this calendar. If none or only some of the snow days are used, the last day of school could be earlier than June 11.
