The school year has gotten off to a great start. Classes are in full swing and going well.
Coming up fast are Parent/Teacher Conferences. These will be held two nights from 4-8pm on
September 30th and October 1st. Parents I urge you to attend, this is a great opportunity to communicate with teachers about your son/daughter. Ongoing communication is essential between parents and teachers. Learn about your son/daughter. At school, we spend 7.5-10.5hrs a day with our students. This is likely longer than the time students spend awake at home. It’s nice to touch base with teachers and see what your student is like at school. Teachers will share strengths and needs that make your student successful. This will be the last “traditional” conferences held in grades 7-12. The format will be changing in the spring to focus on student individual plans of study.

Reminder- Our attendance system provides automated calls for absent students. Please be sure to contact the office ASAP when you know that your student will be absent.

A top priority of our schools is to provide a safe and secure educational environment. In doing so, supervision plays an important role. Students are not to be in the school unsupervised before or after school. This is a major liability to the district. Most often this is an issue after school on game nights. Students are not to be left at school to wait for games to start as we cannot provide supervision. Students will need to leave after school or after practice and return at game time.

Cell phones have been an issue to start the year, more so than in years past. The policy allows for school use at teacher discretion while in class. Personal use is allowed before/after school and during passing periods. Students are asked to not use the school network and use their own data plan. As with anything, continued issues will warrant increased limitations.
1st offense- Phone is taken and the student picks up in the office after school.
2nd offense - Phone is taken and the parent must come pick up in the office after school.

We are excited to announce the return of Bill Cordis, motivational speaker, during Spirit
Week. October 7th marks the second time he has appeared for our student body, but our students have seen him at many conferences and workshops. He always brings a great message about choices and decisions. We are excited to hear him speak about school unity and culture.
As always, it's great to be a part of this outstanding community called Mission Valley.
Please feel free to contact me with any good news, questions or concerns. --- cchesmore@
