Sparktacular Assembly Date Change
Many of you may have received an invite to attend our assembly this Thursday. Due to the predicted wet weather we are going to reschedule this event to 4/5/2018 at 1:25pm. Any rain on Wednesday or Thursday will result in wet bleachers and a muddy track. I apologize to those that may have altered their plans in order to attend. The only venue we have that is large enough for the entire student body is the stadium. Let’s hope the weather is better when we return from spring break.
Freshmen Program Offerings 2018-2019
Construction Affecting Drop-off/Pick-up
Parking Procedures - March 2018
When we return from Spring Break on Monday April 2nd we'll be making another change to the student drop off and parking at AVHS for the second phase of this project.
The Visitor lot will be reopened and the student drop off will resume mostly the same as before. There will now be a drop off zone painted on the ground running parallel to the fence by the practice fields that we believe should help alleviate the line on Bear Valley Road in the morning drop off. You will note that the lines will be much more visible and we ask that you stay in the aisles and not cross over parking lanes as best you can. Students will be let out at the far south east corner and walk in the marked lane for students. Parent please pull all the way forward to the drop off.
Morning Drop Off
** Dropping off students- you will still pull all the way to the fence and then turn left to pull up to the drop off sign in the SE corner. The students will then walk along the painted walk lane through the fence then walk through the back lot towards the Tennis courts onto campus. That back lot, actually known as the “C Lot”, will start being used for staff and student parking during the 2nd phase of the Parking Lot Resurfacing Project.
Because the Home side lot used for student parking will be closed, we will be allowing students and staff to enter the visitor lot from Bear Valley Road and stay to the right of the student drop off line using the aisle closest to the fence and new handicap parking stalls. You will then turn right into the stadium and follow around the Ag Department where then you can then park either to the right by the H-wing and Greenhouse or pull towards the back by the Baseball fields and Ag.
NOTE! NO TRAFFIC WILL BE ALLOWED TO PROCEED TOWARD THE FRONT OF THE SCHOOL C DRIVEWAY BECAUSE THAT WILL BE CONED OFF FOR DROP OFF IN FRONT.
Navajo Drop Off
You will still pull in the C Driveway however now you will pull all the way to the Band gate and turn left and pull up to the sign. When the cars stop, students may exit at any point once inside. After the drop off you will drive between the Parking Islands making a u-turn back towards Navajo and out the C driveway.
After School Pick Up
Navajo C Drive will be open at 1:45 for parents to park and wait for students. Pick up in that lot will exit on Navajo. Visitor lot pick up parents will park in marked stalls and follow the exit lane out like in the morning on the East side fence line. Students and staff may exit C drive or around Ag through the back of the field house. When you exit out of the stadium lot it is prefered that you turn right. If you need to get back to Navajo it is best to turn left on Quinault and left on PahUte.

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).
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.
