  • Volunteers Needed: Library Clean-Up/Organization 
    We're almost at the end of the school year, and it's time to clean-up the library. There are a lot of books out of order, and as we reorganize, I'm hoping we can brainstorm some ideas for improving the process next year. Sign-Up Here

    Important Notice Regarding End of Year Charging Procedure and Negative Lunch Account Balances

    PVSD takes pride in serving nutritious meals daily to our students. We are firm believers that students learn better on a full stomach. We understand that parents are busy and may occasionally forget to pack a lunch or send in money; however, negative balances in student cafeteria accounts need to be paid in full at this time.

    Beginning May 22nd, students will not be permitted to charge meals. All meals must be prepaid. All 8th grade debits need to be paid in full before end of year activities.

    Online payments are available through ParentConnect at

    If you are in need of assistance regarding your student’s cafeteria debt or have any questions, please contact Nance Shirley @ or 805-445-8679.

  • Student Characteristic Form
    Student Characteristic/Interest forms are available in the front office. These forms help to give us an overall learning profile of each child so that we can make the best selection when we place students in classes for next year. These are not teacher request forms because we do not accept teacher requests. However, they are confidential documents that are only viewed by Mr. Borchard so placement conflicts can be minimized before the next school year begins. The last day to turn in the form is May 31st.
