eNews contains important updates from your school, district, and Superintendent. If your email address or phone number changes, notify your school office immediately.
Notifications and eNews will be sent to you via ParentSquare. ParentSquare provides a simple and safe way for everyone at school to connect. With ParentSquare you will be able to receive district, school and classroom communication via email, text or app; share and download class photos; view the school and district calendar; RSVP for events; sign up to volunteer or bring items; view the school family directory online; and interact with groups such as PTO and PVSF. You can also customize your experience by receiving regular messages or daily digests, view from any device, and choose your preferred language.
ParentSquare works from any computer, tablet, or mobile phone. Download the free mobile app for Android or iOS from Google Play or the App Store. The goal is for every PVSD family to join ParentSquare and stay connected!

In the event of a school emergency, evacuation, school closure, etc, parents/guardians will be alerted via automated email, text, and/or voice message. The contact email address and phone number are provided at time of online registration (new student) or during the annual student information update (continuing students). If your contact information changes, please notify your school office immediately.
During an emergency, the District's communication priority is to notify parents/guardians of current students first via text, email, and/or voice message. NextDoor, FaceBook, and other other social media will be updated when there is staff bandwidth to do so.
Please refrain from calling the school or district office as the phone lines need to be kept open for emergency personnel. Parents/Guardians will be sent updates as soon as we are able. Visit the Emergency and Safety webpage for information about school safety plans and procedures.
