Need To Know

As required by the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act of 1986 (AHERA), this is the annual notification of the presence of asbestos-containing materials in certain Clark County School District (CCSD) buildings.

Keep yourself informed by taking the time to read the "Student Handbook".

The link below is information on the Palo Verde Dress Code for Students. Please take the time to read and familiarize yourself with the policy.

As we switch to block scheduling, it is important to note that the limitation on absences for Denial of Credit has changed. Students are not allowed more than seven (7) unverified absences per semester. On the 8th unverified absence, the student will receive Denial of Credit for that class period(s). In addition, all unverified absences will count towards truancies and may result in a student loosing their driver's permit and/or license. It is VERY important that students and parents keep their attendance record up to date.

Attendance notes can now be sent via email to pvhsattendance@ccsd.net. Include the students full name, grade, date of absence(s) and reason the student was out.

The Clark County School District suggests the following precautionary measures for parents and their children. Parents are urged to have frank discussions with their children about the information contained in the link below.

In anticipation of the 2015-2016 school year, I wanted to be proactive and inform you that Palo Verde High School will no longer be accepting personal checks for items such as class fees, extracurricular activities, and fund-raisers.

Microsoft Office Professional is now available free of charge to all active secondary students (grades 6-12) in CCSD through the Microsoft Student Advantage Office 365 program. Students will use their Active Directory login ID and password to download the software. Schools are responsible for providing students with their Active Directory credentials. Those students that require assistance with their AD account or password see Mrs. Gubler in the main office.

The School Accountability Report for 2014-2015 is now available by clicking on the links below.

On January 1, 2015 a new state law, SB269, will took effect and established a new school attendance requirement for application and maintenance of student learner’s permits and driver’s licenses.

The approval of Assembly Bill 288, makes significant changes to the high school graduation requirements for Nevada High School Students. The changes will be be implemented over the next three years, starting with the junior class of 2016. For more information click the link below.
