Dear PVSD Students, Staff and Parents,

I hope that you and your family had a fantastic January! I would like to invite you to take a moment and follow our district social media feeds. Staying in touch with us on social media will keep you in the loop on the amazing things we are accomplishing together. Social media may also be a critical line of communication during emergencies and will be a great place for you to get up to date information. 

1. Knowledge - Learn about what makes our community, our schools, district programs, students, teachers, district staff, families, and the future so amazing! You may also obtain information about activities, events, and important dates.

2. Stay Connected - Keep up-to-date with what is going on at your child’s school and the district as a whole. Participate in the shared experience of our social media community. Like, share, comment on topics that inspire you! Research indicates that involved families results in successful students!

3. Emergency Communication - During emergencies district and school social media feeds may be a critical line of communication with our community. When we respond to a school-wide or district-wide emergency, one of the first lines of communication to be updated may be social media.
