WHAT PARENTS SHOULD KNOW

              New Student Orientation Program

~ Save the Dates! ~

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

We are very excited that your student will be attending Clayton Valley Charter High School and we look forward to meeting them during their four(4) orientation days. As you may know, our school participates in the nationwide Link Crew Program, an organization whose sole purpose is to help new students feel more comfortable on campus, as well as help them achieve academic success during high school.

 

The Link Crew Freshman Transition program is designed to both welcome and support Freshmen by assigning them Link Leader mentors prior to the first day of school. These Link Leaders are responsible older students who were hand selected from a large pool of applicants and have met the qualifications of being a good role model and a positive leader on our campus. 

 

Below is some information to let you and your student know what they can expect during our orientation program.

 

  •     Students may not bring backpacks, purses or other items as the days are quite active. There is NO need for any technology items during these days. 
  •     Because the days are active, please make sure that your student wears comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement. The dress code is enforced so please: no bare midriffs, bra straps showing, short shorts, sagging pants etc. 
  •    On August 6th we ask that a parent or guardian attend with their student. You may attend anytime between 9:00AM and 12:00PM. Please enter by the Large Gym. This is the day they will get a class schedule, free class t-shirt, lockers, campus tour and purchase CV items (yearbook, PE clothing etc.). 
  •    August 7th-9th are Student-Only days, so your student must attend on their own. A FAQ sheet is available below to answer all of your questions regarding the student-only days. The program is from 8:00AM – 12:00PM and attendance is taken each day. Check in at the Small Gym

 

CVCHS is unique in that we offer a 4-day program to ensure your student is given the opportunity to make new friends, obtain crucial information and have some fun on their new campus! They will be in the same small groups of eight(8) students for the three(3) student-only days.

 

Student-Only dates are August 7th- August 9th.  Drop off is at 8:00AM each morning and you must pick your student up at 12:00PM (noon) each day.  Please drop off and pick up in the student parking lot (Lot 3) located next to the Large Gym.  Students are not allowed to leave the program early.

 

This is a mandatory event as it is a graduation requirement

so please be sure to save the dates now!

 

We look forward to meeting you and your student on Tuesday, August 6th, 2019 at 8:00AM!
