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.

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.
