PARENT MEETING: Joe Girdner, vice principal at Douglas High School, will attend the December 17 6PM meeting to discuss the transition of the current 8th and 9th graders to DHS.

All absences must be cleared within three school days of your student returning to school, or the absence will be considered a truancy.

All absences must be cleared within three school days of your student returning to school, or the absence will be considered a truancy. If the absence is still within in the three days of your student returning to school please contact the school site to clear the absence. If the absence is over three days please contact, R.

HALL ACCESS: Students are not allowed in the CVMS main halls (A, B, and C) until the 7:30 bell rings. They can go to the library, MPR, or the gym prior to that time.
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.
ADDITIONALLY, if a student stays at school for an after-school event they must be at that event. Students are not allowed to be in other parts of the school after-school, unsupervised.
CVMS 2014-2015 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 2014-2015 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.
THINKING OF PLAYING A HIGH SCHOOL SPORT? 9th grade through 12th grade students need to pick up an athletic packet from the Tiger Cage and return to the Tiger Cage. For additional information please call the Tiger Cage at 782-5136, ext. 1823.
HAVEN’T SEEN THE DRUG & ALCOHOL PRESENTATION YET? Parents and Student can now view the Drug and Alcohol Presentation on the DHS website, click here for assistance.
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.
REGISTRATION for NEW STUDENTS: Students moving from a DCSD feeder elementary school are already registered. New students planning on attending CVMS in the 2014-2015 school-year will begin making appointments for registration on Friday, August 1, 2014. Please call 782-2265, ext. 2303 to make an appointment.
Note: The following documents are required for registration:
- birth certificate,
- record of immunizations,
- transcript or last report card,
- copy of your student’s IEP, if applicable.
- proof of residency
- registration packet
Please have these documents at registration, as failure to do so will delay the process. Your student will be asked to take a series of tests to help determine placement, so please plan on your student's participation in 2-3 hours of testing. A return appointment will be made with the counselor to make your student’s schedule.
