Good evening CVHS Students and Parents/Guardians of CVHS Students,
We are very excited for the 2019-2020 school year to begin. We are including some very important information in this email regarding Gear Days/Orientation. We ask that you read this email in its entirety.
We have implemented new procedures for Gear Day this year. Gear Days will take place on Monday, July 15th (for Freshmen and Sophomores) and Tuesday, July 16th for (Juniors and Seniors). Gear Days begin at 8am and conclude at 3pm. Please see the attached flyer for more specific details. There is an Orientation for Freshmen and ALL students new to CVHS on Monday, July 15th, from 8am-9am in the gym.
This year, we are asking that EVERY STUDENT attend Gear Day to take their school pictures/get their IDs, locator cards, pick up their textbooks and laptop computer (FRESHMEN AND JUNIORS ONLY)*, and purchase gear and ASB/class packages from the ASB (CASH ONLY) in Room 1502. The purpose of the change for Gear Day is to ensure all students are equipped with everything they need before the school year starts. This year, we are trying to minimize disruptions to teachers and students by maximizing instructional time.
*Sweetwater Union High School District has scheduled laptop distribution for Sophomores and Seniors for the end of July. We apologize for the inconvenience and will communicate those dates as soon as they are available.
Class packages are only available for purchase on Monday, July 15th and
Tuesday, July 16th. After July 16th, all components of the class packages will be available as individual items for purchase at regular price. Class packages are offered at a discounted price. On gear days, you may also purchase individual items at a discounted price. After the 16th, all items will return to regular price. All gear day items are also currently up on our website and available for purchase through July 16th. The link to our website is:
