Attendance Policy:

Please note that a student must be present for at least 2 full blocks to be counted “present” for the day. This means the student must be present until 12:29 p.m. in order to be marked “present” for that school day.

***Please refer to the Student Handbook on Page 8 

Parent ID:

Parents please provide a photo ID not only when signing out your student but also for when you may need to see them in the office for a brief moment or for when you would like to join them for lunch.  Your student’s safety is very important to us and we want to make sure only those individuals who are listed on the student’s emergency card may contact the student during school hours.  Thank you.


Principal’s Corner 


Mr. Mark L. Mabey - Principal   

I would like to welcome all  of our new parents and our returning parents to the PVMS web page. The web page is broken into three (3) sections and six (6) tabs across the top. The main section will provide current information and share various activities going on at PVMS. The right column is our Parent Corner and we try to put information that you may need throughout the year. The final section is the Principal’s Corner. Here I will provide a monthly letter, you can find links to other important sites (divisional), and I will post important dates. I will also share articles I think might help MS parents.

The tabs can be used to access the following information:

 Info –  general information about PVMS

Newsyou can find our current and previous month’s  Students of the Month and Honor Roll lists **          

Academic  - Instructional information relevant to PVMS 

Links  - Useful school links and information 

Policies  - a list of school policies 

** We will be changing this tab to “Directory”. Here visitors can find email address and web pages.  Student of the Month and Honor Roll will be moved under the Academic tab  


If there is something you are unable to find on our web site, please let me know and we will work to get it added. I also encourage all parents to click on the PTA link and consider getting involved. Our parent groups is awesome and do a lot of us.

Next month I will sending home a welcome letter and will also post those letters here. Again, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or needs.
