  • Heat Advisory

    Dear Parents and Guardians, we are monitoring heat. We have AC at PVMS which provides the added benefit of providing relief to those homes who do not have AC. We have extra water available on buses. At PPMS we have portable AC units in all instructional areas and cooling strategies like available water. We will have indoor recess and lower activity for classes like PE. Watching students who may have heat sensitivity. 

    Overall, it's better to have school for most students than not. This is our first day of school for students. The staff, students, and families are excited to start the year. 

    We will monitor the weather throughout the day.

2017 Smarter Balanced Assessment

The Connecticut Department of Education (CSDE) revised their Smarter Balanced Assessment Reports. The report will now present two years of scores, comparing them side by side. CSDE made this change to emphasize a criterion-referenced interpretation for both achievement (i.e., how did my child perform relative to the achievement expectations) and growth (i.e., how did my child’s performance change from one year to the next).  As in past years, the report retains the normative data (i.e., district and school averages) in order to provide parents with an additional reference.

Click here to view samples of the report for English/Language Arts and Mathematics.

To assist parents with the interpretation of this Smarter Balanced report, the CSDE has created brief videos that are available in both English and Spanish. Those have been posted for your convenience.
