CVHS Community,

It is with a heavy heart that we share that CVHS English teacher, Donna Sweeney, passed away on June 14th following a battle with cancer.  Mrs. Sweeney taught English at CVHS for the past seven years and was a great teacher and a kind person.  She will be greatly missed by the CVHS family.  I know our thoughts are with her friends and family at this time.  Any current and former students are invited to attend the service below:

CVHS End-of-Year Medication Pick-up

GovDelivery 3 weeks 5 days ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

 

Dear Parent or Guardian:

The school health room is reminding parents and guardians that all medication stored in the health room must be picked up no later than 12:00 p.m. on June 13, 2019. Medication left in the health room after that time will be discarded. It is school policy that medications must be picked up by the parent or guardian. Medication cannot be sent home with your student. However, with parent or guardian permission, a high school student may transport over-the-counter medications to and from the school health room.

Medication authorization forms for next school year may be obtained from the school or online at https://www.fcps.edu/resources/student-safety-and-wellness/school-health-services.  A medication authorization form is required for any medication, prescription or over-the-counter, to be kept at school. Please be sure medication orders are clear. All information on the form must be completed. Part I must be signed and dated by the parent or guardian. Part II must be signed and dated by your physician. Over-the-counter medication given for headache, muscle pain, orthodontic pain, or menstrual cramps and antibiotic or anti-viral medication do not need a physician signature. More detailed information is available on the back of the medication authorization form.

Over-the-counter medication must be in the original container and clearly labeled by the parent or guardian. All prescription medication, including physician’s samples, must be labeled by the pharmacist or physician. Please make sure that the label clearly states your student’s name, the name of the medication, the dosage of the medication, and the time interval for administration.

If your child will be enrolled in a summer program sponsored by Fairfax County Public Schools, your existing long-term medication authorization form(s) may be used for the summer program. Please let the health room know if you would like a copy of the form(s).

Your cooperation will ensure that we can safely give your student his or her medication. If you have any questions, please contact your school health room aide, at 703-802-5587, or your school public health nurse, Amanda Price, at 703-802-5484.

Thank you for your cooperation and have a good summer.

Sincerely,

Chad Lehman

CVHS Community,

This week (5/6 – 5/10) is Teacher Appreciation Week at CVHS!  We are grateful for everything our teachers do in support of our students and this community.  Their hard work and dedication serves as an inspiration for our students and is greatly appreciated all throughout the year, but especially this week!  We want to thank our PTSA for providing breakfast on Tuesday morning for our teachers, and we have other tokens of appreciation planned throughout the week.  Please join us in celebrating our wonderful CVHS teachers!

CVHS SOL Testing Schedule

GovDelivery 1 month 3 weeks ago

Having trouble viewing this email? View it as a Web page.

 

Attention:  Parents and Guardians of CVHS Students who are Currently Enrolled in SOL Courses

The Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course (EOC) Non-Writing Tests will be administered to CVHS students beginning on Thursday, May 16th through Friday, June 7th. SOL EOC tests are available in the following high school courses:  Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Biology, Chemistry, 11th Grade English (Reading SOL), Geometry, Geosystems (Earth Science SOL), Virginia and United States History, World History 1, and World History 2. The purpose of SOL testing is to provide information about student achievement to the parent, school, school division, and state. SOL tests measure the extent to which students have learned the content and skills within the Virginia Standards of Learning. In most cases, test scores will be available to students before the end of the school year.

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) requires high school students who are enrolled in any of the courses specified above to take the EOC test if the student needs a verified credit for graduation or if the student has not yet met federal testing requirements (1 Math, 1 Reading, and 1 Biology attempt taken during grades 9-12). Students who have met the testing requirements for graduation and federal accountability are not allowed to test. More detailed information will be provided to students by the teachers of each SOL course.  It is important that your student attends school on the days when he/she is scheduled to take an SOL test. If possible, please avoid scheduling trips or appointments that would take your student out of school on days of testing. It is also important that your student have a good night’s rest and a healthy breakfast before testing.

Students are not permitted to access prohibited electronic devices while they are taking an SOL.  Prohibited electronic devices include all cell phones and any device that can transmit, receive, photograph, or record information including wearable technology. In addition, if it is determined that a student cheated on an SOL test, the student will receive a score of zero on the test and will not be permitted to attempt the test again until the next test administration. We will be reviewing these policies with students on Tuesday, April 30.

Please see below for a schedule of dates and times for each SOL.

Thank you for your attention to these items.
