TUTORING/SUPERVISION Before Athletic Events: if you or your child stays for an athletic event, and we hope they do, they will need to attend tutoring prior to the event. We do not want unsupervised students on campus prior to the 3:00PM game. This is a great opportunity for them to stay on campus and complete homework, make-up missing assignments, or read in a tutoring session from 2:15PM-2:50PM. Thanks for your cooperation.
CVMS 2013-2014 7th and 8th SPORTS: a student must have a CURRENT physical on file in the front office to tryout and participate in a sport at CVMS. If you are an 8th grader and you had a current physical for the 2012-2013 school year you should be good. If you have not participated in a sport at CVMS you need to have a current physical on file at school. If you are not sure please check with the front office.

BACKPACK BUDDY PROGRAM: CVMS has implemented a new program called The Back Pack Buddy Program. We recognize the economic changes that have occured in this community and it's direct impact on many of our students. In partnership with staff donations and community sponsors we are able to to provide food to students that would otherwise go hungry over a weekend. If you are inclined to assist with this endeavour we are accepting items for the program. A short list of items would include the following items; instant oatmeal, canned soup, canned meat, fruit cups, microwave popcorn, fruit roll-ups, trail mix, and peanut butter. We will see that these items get to the appropriate students. Thanks. A complete list of suggested "Back Pack" foods is linked here.
IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY CLOSURE: As part of the Douglas County School District’s communication protocol whenever there is an emergency or school closure parents and the community are encouraged to access the DCSD website: www.dcsd.k12.nv.us for specific information and updates. Information is placed on the district's website as soon as it’s available.
