For Parents

Parent-home school communication is an important part of student achievement.  At PVES, we pledge to work with you to meet your goals for your child.  As you know your child best, we often may turn to you for ideas and suggestions about how to best support your child.

Forms and Documents

Any forms and documents related to school are kept on a shared Google Drive.  You may access the Google Drive by clicking here

Here you can find information related to student attendance, medical forms, bus change forms, weekly grade level academic newsletters, and much more.

Parent Concerns

If you have a concern about your child's education, you should first contact your child's teacher.  You may call the main office and leave a message or send them an e-mail.   Please let Mrs. Altemose or Mr. Weiss know what number you can be reached at.  Please note that teachers can only return phone calls during their prep time, which is scheduled every other day at a set time period.  Their e-mail is listed under the staff directory page.   Please note that teachers will not respond in depth via e-mail and will instead ask you to set up a phone conference or a meeting. 

If you do not hear back from the teacher via phone or e-mail within 24 hours of your call, please call and ask to speak directly to the principal.  Mr. Palazzo will then return your call or e-mail within 24 hours.

Investigation of Behavior Incidents

Please understand that there are a lot of variables that come into play when looking at incidents that may happen during the school day.  Investigations take time and we ask that you be patient as investigations are completed.  The teacher and/or principal will respond to you once the investigation is completed.  Please note that due to privacy laws we cannot disclose information about any other students involved in the incidents.
