Dear Sea King Families, 

I want to start with a big thank you to our entire Sea King community for all you are doing to help us keep our campus safe. We all have the same goal of keeping our students learning in person in a healthy environment. This can only continue to happen when we work together as a collective community and follow the strategies in place to minimize the spread of COVID. I am very proud of our students and how they have continued to protect one another and follow our guidelines while at school. Our teachers have done an excellent job of supporting our school community while offering reminders to our students regarding these guidelines. It is this collective effort that will keep our students learning on campus in a healthy and safe classroom environment.

As we know, the COVID positive cases are increasing across our community and the county. It is critical that we remain vigilant in following the district mitigation strategies to minimize the spread of COVID. Please keep your students at home if they are not feeling well and experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms.  We will work with each of you to support your students' continued learning while they are out of school due to illness. Remember to contact the attendance office to report any absences.

Please remind your student to wear a mask properly at all times while on campus, both indoors and outside, except when actively eating and drinking. Upgrading your student’s mask is an important recommended step. A close-fitting cloth mask can be worn on top of a surgical/disposable mask to improve the seal of the mask to the face. Masks will continue to be available in the offices and at entry points of campus should a student need one.  
Our practice of the daily health screening remains in place and all students need to show their green screen when entering campus.  The link to the daily health screener is provided here for your reference. (   

As we continue to navigate these challenging times as a school community, it is important that we face this as a united Sea King family. While we may not always agree with all the guidance, we can agree that our number one priority is our students: their physical health, academic success, and emotional well-being. Let's continue to approach one another with grace and compassion. I am confident that working together, we will successfully navigate this difficult time and become a stronger Sea King community.

If there is anything I can do to support your student and your family, please continue to reach out to me. I am proud to serve as the principal to our amazing PVHS students, teachers, staff, and families.

Undergraduate Admissions

The college admissions landscape is ever-changing, no more so than in these past two years. Increased competition at highly selective institutions, financial aid policies, and changes in standardized testing are just a few of the major issues of recent admission cycles that students must consider, to say nothing of a continuing global pandemic! What do students and parents need to know about how best to begin investigating and navigating this journey?

We hope you'll register to attend this special virtual presentation on Wednesday, January 19, 6:30 pm to listen to Ms. Rees as she shares her insights and perspective on college admissions and how best to prepare for the road ahead! REGISTER HERE!

ALL GRADES WELCOME, but this is MOST IMPORTANT for the Classes of 2023 & 2024!
South Bay Families Connected:
Focus on youth wellness

Finally, after a full year of distance learning, some students have, understandably, experienced the return to in-person learning as a social challenge. PVPUSD partner South Bay Families Connected (SBFC), a network of 115 schools in the South Bay, has organized Teaching Social Skills: Resources for Parents and Guardians, which contains a video featuring students at local schools, including PVPUSD’s own Rhys Moon, sharing their perspectives regarding the social ups and downs of returning to in-person learning. There you will also find some useful tips to support your children and teens as they develop and refine their own social skills. For related resources, please visit the SBFC Healthy Relationships Page. The SBFC Virtual Teen Center contains a wide variety of mental health and wellness topics. To see more youth wellness resources provided by PVPUSD and SBFC, please visit our own PVPUSD Families Connected
