14 September 2020 | Chartiers Valley Primary School
Dear Primary School Families, 

We want to thank you all for another GREAT week of school!  Our students and staff are showing perseverance as they adapt to the new learning styles and we know that “Together We Can!” 

Our students will take the Acadience assessment over the next few school days.  This is a way for us to see where our students are academically, and it will help us to provide support and enrichment in specific areas.  Feel free to reach out to your child’s homeroom teacher if you have any questions.  

We are reminding students to protect their iPad in their backpack by placing their red folder in front of their device to help keep the screen safe.  We appreciate you reminding them to do the same.  

As always, thank YOU for all that you do to support our students, our teachers and our CVPS Family. We truly appreciate the positive emails and support that we have received as we work together to navigate the circumstances we are facing.

Anissa Rosenwald, Principal
Marc Hubert, Assistant Principal

Student Assessment
Throughout the month of September, teachers will administer assessments in order to gauge students' mastery of specific academic skills. Teachers will utilize information collected from these assessments to adjust curriculum and guide instruction, intervention, and enrichment. These assessments will not be graded or reported; the data collected is for internal use only. Click here for more information.

Procedure for Varsity Football Game on 9.18.20
Please click here to read the plan and procedures for this Friday's home football game.

Both Hybrid and CV Cyber students must submit attendance on remote learning days using Infinite Campus. Click here for instructions, or click here for a video tutorial. If a Hybrid or CV Cyber student is unable to complete school work on a remote learning day, the student will be marked absent. Hybrid students who are absent on in-person days may either choose to work remotely (if healthy enough to do so), or receive an excused/unexcused absence (documentation must be provided for absence to be excused).
Technology Help
The Primary School has a Technology page for families. Once there, you will find a variety of helpful documents, videos, and other information to help you to navigate the technology aspects within our school. Please click here to read the important updates that were published on August 26 including the charges that may be assessed if there is any damage to the district-owned devices or if they end up missing.
If you or your child are experiencing a technology concern beyond what is available on the Technology page, please email technology@cvsd.net stating your child’s full name, grade and the issue you are experiencing.  Our technology team is working around the clock to support our students, families and staff!  

iPads have been issued to all Primary School students!  If your child has not yet received their device, please be certain that you have completed the correct iPad Agreement Form:
 iPad Agreement form (for cyber students) 
 iPad Agreement form (for hybrid students) 
For hybrid students, teachers can give the iPad to your child after the agreement has been signed.  This may take 1 or 2 days to occur.  If for any reason you need to pick up your child’s device, please call the main office prior to arriving at school.  
Start with Hello!
The Primary School will be participating in Start with Hello NEXT WEEK!  It will be from September 21-25.  The Start with Hello initiative is all about eliminating feelings of social isolation in students.  

There are three simple steps to starting with hello:  
1. See Someone Alone  
2. Reach Out and Help
3. Say Hello

This initiative not only helps with feelings of social isolation but it also promotes various social skills including identifying emotions of others and promoting positive social interactions.  Click here for more information.  

We encourage all students and staff members to wear a green shirt on Monday, Wednesday and/or Friday to show their support of the Start with Hello initiative!

UPDATE:  Birthday Celebrations
We know how exciting birthdays are for children.  Due to COVID-19 restrictions, unfortunately we are unable to allow students to distribute any items for birthdays or other occasions.  Thank you for understanding.  
Afternoon Pick-Up
If you are planning to pick up your child in the afternoon, you must complete the Online Pick Up form before 1:30 that day.  We have twice as many students being picked up this year than normal.  Completing the form prior to 1:30 will help us to ensure the safety of your child.  We appreciate your support with this.
Google Meets
All students will be offered the opportunity to participate in Google Meets as part of our online learning platform. Students are NEVER required to attend a Google Meet with any of their teachers.  Our teachers will offer many Google Meets throughout the year.  If you miss one (or 5!), please don’t worry.  There will never be new instruction provided and teachers will not be sharing pertinent information during the Google Meets.  Please review the Google Meet Permission Letter and Form. If you do not want your child to participate in Google Meets, please complete the form.

Still need help?
There are a few questions that may come up throughout the school year that may be addressed simply by viewing the CVPS Concerns & Who to Call page.
