When students are absent from school, we encourage them to check their Power School page for any assignments or projects missed during their absence.  If they check their Student Portal and Power School page, it will avoid the problem of falling behind.

Parents have the option of requesting homework for absences of at least (3) consecutive days.  Please call the office at (714) 997-6251 to request homework for pick up.  Parents need to allow 24 hours to collect homework from teachers.  Parents can pick up the requested work from the Attendance Office the day following the request.

 

ACTIVITIES

My child didn't sign up for a club at the beginning of the year.  Is it too late to join a club?

Your student(s) should listen for announcements regarding the club he/she/they are interested in and attend the meetings. He/She/They can go speak with the club advisor for more information about becoming a member.  CV Honor Society is the only club on campus that membership is by invitation only and requires a 3.5 GPA for eligibility.

 

Where can I get information about student activities during the school day?

Our Leadership students make daily announcements regarding student activities. Activities usually take place during Home Room, Nutrition, Lunch, and After School.  They also publish a monthly calendar that is posted in classrooms and on our website.  CLICK HERE to go the CALENDAR page.

 

Do you offer any after school day care?
