PVSchools is closed through the end of the school year. Visit our COVID-19 page for additional information.
The safety and security of all PVSchools students and staff is our highest priority. All district staff members receive training in a variety of emergency scenarios.
In accordance with Arizona Revised Statutes (ARS), 15-341 (A) (31), PVSchools' emergency response plans have been developed by school and district teams to ensure that all schools meet emergency response preparedness guidelines established by the Arizona Department of Education, and the Arizona Division of Emergency Management.
Parents are encouraged to review the resources provided on this page.

PVSchools offers a SMS (short message service) text messaging alert service for school/district emergency and high-priority broadcast messages.
If you are a parent or guardian and haven’t already signed up to receive high-priority and emergency text messages, just follow the quick steps outlined here to get started:
Due to FCC regulations, any time you change or add a mobile number, you will automatically get a new opt-in message from the district for each of the new numbers, unless you choose to opt in by yourself.
Please note: SchoolMessenger, the district’s emergency communication system, does not charge any text message fees; however, wireless carriers typically do. Please contact your wireless carrier directly for more information about their text messaging fees. (Visit SchoolMessenger's website.)
