Halloween Parties & Class Treats

The Halloween party at CVPS will be held Friday, October 28, 2022. If your student will be dressing up, please send kids dressed in costumes. This was incorrect in the previous memo. Only approved PTG party volunteers will be permitted into the classroom. NO WEAPONS (or look-alike weapons) of any sort are to be sent to school. If your student is wearing a mask, please make sure that they can see well through the mask.


The Halloween Parade will begin at 9:30 a.m. Parking will ONLY be available at the HS/MS campus which means a walk across the bridge will be necessary to get to the Primary School safely. NO PARKING IS AVAILABLE IN THE PRIMARY SCHOOL LOTS for anyone that is not volunteering or working at the building.


Please also remember the Holiday parties occur three times a year. The PTG provides volunteers for each party. All treats brought in must be non-edible. Snacks that are sent to school will be returned to your child. PTG will be providing treats and no edible treats should be sent in.  


Blessings in a Backpack

If your family is experiencing financial hardship and would benefit from food being sent home over the weekends, please reach out to Mrs. Krepp at mkrepp@cvsd.net or 412-429-7016. 


Family Cyber Safety Night

How can your family be safe online? By knowing how!  You and your family are invited to join a Family Cyber Safety Night sponsored by CSisElementary. This program is designed for families with students in K-5. This program will be a one-hour-long Livestream event full of fun family activities!
