A Message From The Principal

August 2014

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students:

On behalf of the faculty and staff at Putnam Valley High School, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back to school.  The first day of class is Wednesday, September 3rd, and classes begin at 7:10 AM. 

In compliance with the Board of Education's goal to go paperless, Putnam Valley High School no longer communicates with parents and students via paper.  All of the back to school information will be found on the High School Web page under Parent Resources by Grade Level, or in the student's Power School records. These forms include the following:

2014 – 2015 School Calendar
Military Recruiting Information (11th & 12th grades)
PVHS Health Office Information     KI (Potassium Iodide) Information
PTSA Welcome & Information        Free & Reduced Lunch Information
Public Relations Release       School-related Accident Insurance

Students can access their Class Schedule, Locker Combination, and Bus Schedule through Power School using their User Name and Password beginning Tuesday, August 26th

Ninth Graders are invited to visit the school on Thursday, August 28th or Friday, August 29th from 8:30 – 11:30 to locate their locker and their classrooms. We have found that this makes the transition to high school and the first day of school much easier for our 9th graders.

Students should follow their schedule on the first day.  If there are any revisions to the schedule they will be distributed to students in their first period class.  If you are a twelfth grade student and find an open/non-scheduled period on your schedule, you are to report to the cafeteria or the library.  All seniors are to arrive for 1st period and remain through 9th period until the proper paperwork has been submitted and approved for late arrivals and early leaves.  Students should bring a loose-leaf notebook, pen, and pencil to school on the first day so they are prepared to take notes.  Students will receive further class-specific instructions for supplies during the first few days of class.

We have scheduled a BBQ lunch for students beginning at 12:44 PM on September 3rd.  Students will be dismissed at the regular dismissal time of 1:50 PM.

Seniors who were assigned a parking space will receive parking hang-tags in the mail during the week of August 18th.  Please hang the tag on the back of the rear view mirror facing out, follow all safety precautions, and enjoy your new privilege.  Please remember to arrive early enough to locate your parking space, avoid traffic congestion, and arrive to class on time to maintain your parking privilege.

We have some important dates that you should note:

Monday, Aug. 25th and Tuesday, August 26th – Senior Portraits
Tuesday, Sept. 23rd – Back to School Night – 6:00 PM
Wednesday, Sept. 24th – School Photos for Underclassmen & Senior Portraits

Enjoy the rest of the summer!  I look forward to working with you to make this a highly productive, successful, and enjoyable school year.

Vincent S. Burruano, Principal
