HELLO, FEBRUARY!

January is behind us, so it's time to look at what's going on in February. There is an early dismissal on Feb. 17 and no school from Feb 18-21. There are also events going on across the district; check out the district calendar here and the athletics schedule here! (And don't forget wish your loved ones a Happy Valentine's Day on Feb. 14!).

Calling all CV alumni! Did you meet your sweetheart at CV? Want to share your story? Send a brief paragraph (how you met, how long you've been together, where you are now, fun - or funny! - stories about your days at CV, etc.) along with a photo(s) to Katie Meier to be featured on social media leading up to and on Valentine's Day!

COVID-19 UPDATE CENTER

We were optimistic the COVID News Update Center would be a thing of the past by the time this school year started. Unfortunately, there is still a need to maintain and update the News Update Center for the foreseeable future.

The Update Center was created in the spring of 2020 when the virus first affected our area. Our COVID dashboard will again be updated each school day in the late afternoon or evening.

In addition, the Update Center has a plethora of resources and information, including letters from Dr. Zuilkoski, learning resources, and more.

DID YOU KNOW?

CVHS has an internship program! Juniors or seniors are eligible to apply for an internship where they will spend time onsite with flexible hours. Some of our students intern five days a week, others for three days. Our internship program is incredibly business friendly; we want to build relationships that benefit all parties!

And a big thank you to a few of our current partners, including Universal Athletic Club, Calvary Church, and the Barnstormers!
