    School Attendance

    Did you know that:

    • good attendance now will help your child do well in high school, college and at work. 
    •  Your children can suffer academically if he/she misses 10 percent of the school year or about 18 days. 
    •  Attendance matters as early as kindergarten. Studies show many children who miss too many days in kindergarten and first grade can struggle academically in later years. They often have trouble mastering reading by the end of third grade.
    • A student who is sick should stay at home, but every day of attendance helps your child to succeed in school! 

    Annual Notification to Parents/Guardians 2018-2019

    This week, your child will be bringing home a folder of important start-of-the-year information. One of the most important documents is the Annual Notification to Parents/Guardians. 

    Annually, the state and federal governments have mandates and requirements for parent notification so that all parents and guardians receive information about their child's education. 

    When you receive this booklet, please keep it in a safe place.  It is also available with the link below and also as a link from the parent page of this website.

    2018-2019 Instructional Calendar

    The 2018-2019 instructional calendar is now available. You will notice one major change in next year's calendar compared to previous calendars. Spring Break in 2019 will only be one week. The reason for this is because Paso Robles School District, the district that our students tend to feed into, has chosen to only take one week off for spring break. We try to keep our calendar as close as possible to that of Paso Robles in order to help families with daycare.

    Pleasant Valley School and District

    Pleasant Valley School, nestled in the beautiful vineyard covered hills of San Miguel has been creating successful learners and members of the community since 1884.  Students in kindergarten through sixth grade attend this wonderful school, and despite its small size, the school still provides the equivalent 21st Century education that is available in the much larger districts.

    The school community prides itself on its long-standing tradition of strong parent and community involvement. Yearly events, such as the Harvest Festival, Color Run, and Thanksgiving Feast add to the sense of community involvement in the school.

    The faculty and staff of PVS are highly qualified, caring professionals who promote a warm, safe, and family-oriented atmosphere.  They value pride in education and life-long learning. The small class sizes and high staff to student ratios mean that students can receive individual help for their educational and other needs. One-to-one technology and a dedicated science STEM lab are just two of the great offerings that this tiny but mighty school has to offer. 

    Pleasant Valley School is a little out of the way but not too hard to find. It's just a short 15-minute drive NE of Paso Robles. Stop by and check us out!
