Dear CV parents,

As part of CVs student leadership we are putting on Celebrate Culture Day, showcasing the different cultures at CV. We want to give students an opportunity to bring in food that represents their culture to share with the student body. If you or your student(s) would like to provide food to this event there’s no sign ups required, all you have to do is bring in your food and provide plates and utensils if possible (if you can’t provide plates we’ll have some at the event). If you have any questions, feel free to email us at celebrateculturecv@gmail.com.

Everyone — $1 Rowdy Raider Stickers are on sale to benefit the Heartland Humane Society. They will be sold in the main hallway at lunch.

Everyone — Our Raider Wear Online Store is live and ready to accept orders at the following address:


Everyone — Get in shape / maintain your fitness — the weight room is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3:15 to 4:15. See Mr. Howe with any questions.

Everyone — School Donation Opportunity

First Alternative has revived their Round UP program for local schools.  The Co-op donates $1,000 per quarter, divided, to local schools.  Any shopper may give a school name or number (#79923 Crescent Valley High School) at the register when asked if they have a Co-op card.  That registers the purchase for the school they have chosen.

Everyone — Winter Weather and Safety Reminders

With the change of season comes shorter daylight hours and a wintry mix of weather. This message is to provide reminders for students, staff, and families. We will be sending a TEST emergency alert message to all student households next week. If you do not receive a phone call or email, please contact your child’s school to update your phone number. Thank you!

Snow Routes, School Zones, and Parking Lot Safety

In the event of icy or snowy roads, some bus routes have snow routes if conditions do not permit following the regular route.  During the first week of December, Snow Route information will be shared with families.

In all types of weather, please give yourself extra time in school zones and parking lots.

  • Avoid distracted driving including the use of cell phones and other devices
  • Use your school’s approved drop-off and pick-up zones
  • Take extra care to watch for pedestrians and bikes
  • Follow school crossing guard directions & remind your student to use crosswalks when available

Winter Roads

Each year we see a wintry mix of freezing rain, snow, ice, or flooding. The decision to delay or close school is based on:

  • the ability to operate school busses safely
  • the ability of students and parents/guardians to drive safely
  • the ability of employees to get to work on time and safely
  • the suitability of our facilities for occupation, as well as the condition of local infrastructure

How We Communicate School Cancellations and Delays

In the event of the decision to delay or cancel school, parents and guardians are notified with an automated call and email, typically at 6:00 am or 7:00 pm.

When there is a delayed start

  • School starts two hours later than regularly scheduled
  • Before-school programs are canceled
  • Buses may be on snow routes, bus rider families will be notified with an automated call and email.

When school is canceled

  • All schools are closed and typically all school meetings and events are canceled

Please contact the school office if you have any questions.
