Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!

Greetings Parents and Students,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I truly hope you all have had a nice relaxing summer vacation and are ready to succeed this school year. I am Ms. Angel, the principal at Palo Verde High School. This is my nineteenth year as an educator in the Palo Verde Unified School District. I am beginning my fourth year as an administrator in PVUSD and as the 2018-19 school year is quickly approaching, I just want to say how excited I am about being your Principal. I look forward to helping our students become college and career ready.

There will be a new registration procedure for every student in our district beginning this year. All PVUSD students will be required to complete a registration packet before school starts. Packets for every Palo Verde student will be available to be picked up at the school site beginning July 30, 2018. The packets will need to be completed and returned to the Palo Verde cafeteria Thursday, August 9th between 4:30pm and 7:30pm for all 11th & 12th graders and Friday, August 10th between 4:30pm and 7:30pm for 9th & 10th graders. Lifetouch will be on site for student school IDs. Please bring your student on their respective night.

Once your packet is completed and turned in, you will receive your student’s class schedule and school agenda. If you are unable to attend the August 9th date then please stop by the office on the 10th to turn in your completed packet. It is highly recommended that you do not wait until the first day of school to register your child. Students without registration packets completed the first day of school will be asked to wait in the library until the packet is completed. If students are not accompanied by a parent/legal guardian, parents/legal guardians will be called to come and complete the registration packet. Students will not be admitted to class until the registration packet is complete.   

School will begin on Monday, August 13th and the first week of school will consist of all minimum days. Therefore, school begins at 7:12am and students will be released each day at 11:00am. We will resume our regular school schedule on Monday, August 20th. School begins at 7:12am and students are released at 2:20pm M,T, TH & F. On Wednesdays, students will be released at 1:30pm. Our Back to School night is scheduled for Wednesday, August 29th at 6pm in the cafeteria.  

We have added new additions to our PVHS team. There are 6 new teachers, two new counselors, a new Vice-Principal and a new athletic director. Vice-Principal, Mrs. Schlehuber will be overseeing student discipline. PVHS alumni, Mrs. Fisher and Ms. Sanchez will be working in the counseling department along with Mrs. Johnson. Parents have the opportunity to clear attendance by sending an email to pvhs.attendance@pvhs.us.

As a reminder, Palo Verde has a number of opportunities for parent involvement. One of the most important is School Site Council. The School Site Council will require three parent volunteers and contributes to the discussion on Title 1 expenditures. We will hold key votes for the Site Council at our Back-to-School Night on August 29, 2018 at 6:00pm. Please contact the school if you would like more information about the SSC.  

 

Upcoming Events:

  • August 1st Fall Sports Tryouts Begin
  • August 10th Freshman Orientation in Gym 8am
  • August 23rd Volleyball Gym 5pm
  • August 24th Football Scott Stadium 7pm
  • August 20th-24th Senior Portraits (please refer to scheduled appointments that are on the postcard that is being mailed to you)
  • August 29th Back to School Night PVHS Cafeteria 6pm

I look forward to seeing each of you on Monday, August 13, 2018. Breakfast is served from 6:45am – 7:10am. School starts promptly at 7:12am. If you would like to stop by before school starts, you are certainly welcome to do so. Our office will be open Monday-Friday from 7:30am – 3:30pm. and we would be happy to assist you. If you would like to formally meet with me before school starts, I would suggest calling 760-922-7148 ext. 2101 to schedule an appointment.    

Please remember that I maintain an open door policy and always welcome ideas, feedback, and constructive criticism that will help move the school forward. Enjoy the rest of your summer break and we will see you soon. I hope you have had an enjoyable summer and are well rested and eager to come back to school.

Sincerely,

Rachel Angel

Principal

Dress Code

The school, as a center of learning, shall provide for the development of habits and attitudes conducive to acceptable apparel, and good grooming. The Principal or the Principal’s designee has the final authority for interpreting whether a student’s apparel conforms to dress code. When it is determined that a student’s clothing does not comply with the dress code, a parent/guardian may be asked to bring an appropriate change of clothes of school. If the violation of dress code cannot be rectified the student will be sent to in school suspension. The student may also receive a disciplinary consequence for violating the school’s dress code policy. Students are expected to comply with dress code rules while attending all school activities including field trips and athletic events.

The personal appearance of students may follow the style of the day; however, the wearing of overly tight, loose, distracting, extreme, or inappropriate apparel is not permitted.

Shirt fabric must be thick enough so that there are no areas in which the fabric is sheer or see through unless a tank top is worn underneath. No holes are permitted unless a tank top is worn underneath. Shirts must extend over the waist to below the top of the shorts or pants. No vulgar graphics or suggestive/double meaning logos are allowed on shirts.

Dear Colleagues:

March 15, 2017
This letter provides information about the 2017 administration of the University of California’s universitywide Analytical
Writing Placement Examination (AWPE). This year, UC will administer the AWPE on Saturday, May 13 to students who
have been admitted to a UC campus for fall 2017 and have not satisfied the Entry Level Writing Requirement by other
means. Students selected to take the exam will receive a letter in early April regarding the exam requirements and their
AWPE testing location.
Students are not required to take the AWPE if UC has received any of the following test scores that satisfy the Entry Level
Writing Requirement:

  • 30 or better on the ACT, English Language Arts or Combined English/Writing section; or
  • 680 or better on the College Board SAT Reasoning Test, Writing section (last administered January 2016); or

Comprehensive information about the Entry Level Writing Requirement and the AWPE is available online at
www.ucop.edu/elwr. The website includes information on the examination process, previous exams, and Student Test
Data reports that indicate the number and percentage of students who satisfied the Entry Level Writing Requirement prior
to enrollment. Data can be viewed by school or county and are intended to provide useful feedback as educators work
with students to improve academic performance.
