Construction Affecting Drop-off/Pick-up

A construction project will impact arrival and pick-up for all families beginning on 1/8/2018. Upon our return from Winter Break the VISITOR SIDE OF THE STADIUM WILL BE CLOSED. We realize this will add time to our morning arrival. Families that usually use the Visitor Drop-off will need to use one of the other two drop off locations. The home side of the stadium and the south parking lot on Navajo Rd will remain in their normal operation. They will, however, become even more impacted as we reduce our arrival points from three to two.

Unfortunately I do not know the duration of the closure on the Visitor Lot. Once completed, the project will move to the home-side and we will have another inconvenience. Thank you all for your patience and understanding as we go through this process.

Parent Chromebook/Technology Trainings        

If you were unable to attend one of the in-person parent technology meetings, you can complete the training by clicking on one of the links below.  There are instructions at the end of the training for signing the paperwork.  Paperwork is also available in the front office.  Students will not be issued a Chromebook without this completed paperwork.  For information on purchasing Chromebook Insurance click here.

Drop Off and Pick Up Locations

Please note the following map that illustrates the drop-off and pick-up areas on campus. Due to student safety and traffic congestion we will not be allowing student pick-up/drop-off in the front lot of the school. The areas marked in orange are the locations to use. The best and fastest location is the Visitor’s parking lot of the stadium off of Bear Valley Road. I will make sure that school personnel is posted in strategic locations to assist us in establishing the proper procedures. Please see the map and notice the area with the big red X. That is the area that we need to avoid. The orange areas are the locations that provide students with the safest routes:

If you are picking up your student from Navajo Road, you must enter either the South Parking Lot through the southern most entrance or the Stadium Lot from it’s southern most entrance. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Principal’s Welcome

Dear AVHS Families,

First of all I would like to “Welcome Back”  the 50th graduating class of AVHS- the class of 2018! AVHS has always been a school of rich tradition, deep community relationships, and meaningful and powerful program. This school year will be no different. We will continue to bleed ORANGE, despise green and ring The Bell. I commit, once again, to making this school year the best in the history of AVHS. My goal is to ensure the experience for each and every student is purposeful, meaningful, and enjoyable.

As part of our commitment to students to continually improve their experience, we have a few changes in store for this school year. A couple of our biggest changes will be in the areas of consistency and communication. Our teachers have spent the last year designing classroom and schoolwide expectations that are consistent throughout campus. You will notice the word “SPARK” splashed all over campus. Safe, Proud, Accountable, Respectful, and Kin will be taught, modelled, and rewarded throughout the school year. One of our teachers, Mrs. Celie, said it best at a recent staff meeting. “Too often our students with negative behaviors receive all our time and attention; let’s go after the kids that do it right,” she said. I could not agree more. Our first public recognition of students that have proven themselves to be SPARKs of our campus will occur on Wednesday, August 16th during an all-school assembly in our stadium. Selected incoming seniors will be recognized with a brand new award to our campus (more information and invites will be coming).

Another new addition to our school will be monthly “Town Hall” meetings. Please watch for a survey that will be available after our Back-To-School night on 8/30/2017. I will do my best to accommodate the time and day of week that works best for our families. I look forward to this partnership and am eager to share and hear from each of you during these meetings throughout the year.

We will begin our school year together on Wednesday, August 9th on a regular bell schedule (7:01-1:54). Please continue to visit our website at avhs.net for updated information regarding events and news here on campus. Also, if you would like to sign up for our text alert system text the code @stuavhs to the number 81010.

Finally, I look forward to serving you and your family as principal of Apple Valley High School. I am honored to hold this position and hold this calling in the highest regard.

Dustin Conrad
