8th Annual "Spotlight on Career Day"
Career Day will be held on Friday, March 1, 2019, from 12:50 p.m. - 1:50 p.m. The goal for this event is to introduce your students to various occupations and professions. We believe this kind of endeavor will lead to more informed career choices in the future. If you would like to attend this event with your student, please call our office at (909) 923-3455 and give them your student's name and your name so that you can be put on our guest list.
PSAT INFORMATION FOR 2019
TEST DATE: March 13th @ 8:00 AM
During the 2018-2019 school year the PSAT 8 will be administered at no charge to 8th graders. Students will automatically be registered to take the test unless parents contact the school and opt them out.
Parents and students are encouraged to click on PSAT Information for 2019 under Academics in the navigation bar above for the following information: PSAT Information for 2019, Practice, PSAT/Kahn Academy Flyer, PSAT 8 Understanding Scores, Info and Tips for Parents, and Acceptable Calculators for PSAT.
Students, when creating their College Board accounts, that will follow them to high school, are encouraged to use their District email address.
(Chino Valley Unified School District will use a student's District email address when registering students for testing.) If an account was created with an email other than the District email please call (866) 756-7346 for assistance in changing the email.
Important Meal Charge Policy Update
(This policy does not affect students on the Free or Reduced-priced school meal program.)
Effective January 1, 2019, when a student's meal account balance reaches $0.00, Nutrition Services Dept. will extend a $10.00 borrowing limit to allow parents time to repay and replenish the student's account. Once the borrowing limit is reached and a student forgets or loses their money for a meal, they will receive an alternate meal. The alternate meal will be served until the unpaid meal debt is cleared and the account is brought to a positive balance.
The alternate meal will still be a nutritionally adequate meal and will consist of the following items:
- Whole Grain Crackers
- String Cheese (2 each)
- Daily Fruit and Vegetable Selections
- Choice of White or Chocolate Milk
Alternate meal charges are the responsibility of the parent/guardian and will be billed separtely through the Nutrition Services Department. To help eliminate the need of alternate meals, Nutrition Services has partnered with mySchoolBucks, an on-line payment service company, to allow for quicker fund deposits into meal accounts. Please visit www.mySchoolbucks.com and view their check or cash pre-payment options which are also available in the cafeteria.
