Back to School Resources

Image of Back to School 2021

Welcome to the start of the 2022-23 school year. The first day of school is Wednesday, August 31, 2022.

We are looking forward to another successful year together. This page combines information and links to resources you will need to begin the 2022-2023 year fully prepared! As we finalize details for the school year we will add them to this page. Please check back often!

As always, If you have any questions contact your school building.


At the start of each school year, we ask families to please update important information and complete annual sign-offs in Skyward. These forms are live and available for completion right now. You are encouraged to complete this vital information prior to the first day of school.

As a reminder, parents/guardians may access their Skyward Family Access portal at the following web address:


GENERAL INFORMATION: Transportation guidelines, safety tips, and more available by clicking here to view our Transportation Department webpage.

BUS SCHEDULES: Individual student bus schedules are available throughout the year by logging into Skyward Family Access Center and clicking on the transportation tile. The 2022-23 assignments are currently available for review. As you are able, please log into your Skyward Family Access Center account to verify that your child's pick-up and drop-off location is accurate. We ask that you please also double-check Skyward prior to the first day of school as bus assignments and pickup and drop off times may be slightly altered due to daily enrollment changes. As always, please have your child at their stop five minutes prior to the listed stop time. Should you log into your Skyward Parent Portal account and you do NOT see your child’s bus information, please contact the Transportation Department at [email protected]

REMINDERS: It is commonplace for transportation delays to occur at the beginning of each school year. These delays often work themselves out during the first few weeks as drivers better familiarize themselves with their routes, as students learn to navigate their new building and/or bus location, and as student enrollment stabilizes. This is especially true as our transportation contractors continue to face challenges associated with bus/van driver shortages. We appreciate your understanding, patience, and support as we work through these delays.


DISTRICT COMMUNICATION: The district utilizes SchoolMessenger as our automated notification system. To ensure you receive email and telephone communication from the district throughout the school year, please make sure that all of your contact information is up-to-date in your Skyward Family Access account. You also have the option to opt into text messaging, should you so choose. Text messaging is used as a mode of communication during inclement weather, emergencies, and bus delays, and to draw attention to other important updates from the district. If you are new to the district, or if you have not previously opted into text alerts, you may do so by following the directions available by clicking here.

In addition to SchoolMessenger, individual teachers and/or buildings may use other modes of communication throughout the year (Schoology, Skyward, SeeSaw, etc).

SOCIAL MEDIA: To increase our communication efforts, you may follow us on Facebook (@cvschools) and Twitter (@cvsdnews). Please ensure that you follow our official accounts to guarantee the most accurate information.

Calendar Image FOOD SERVICE

As shared previously with families: While free meals for all students was a welcome relief during the COVID-19 pandemic, these benefits unfortunately have ended. Our prior ability to provide free meals for all students, regardless of economic status, was due to a temporary change in federal law that provided meal reimbursement for all meals served. Unfortunately, federal reimbursement will NOT continue and, as such, we must resume charging for meals beginning in the 2022-23 school year. Please see below for breakfast and lunch pricing. A list of a la carte prices is available by clicking here.

We understand that you might be feeling a little anxious about how your child will manage without a free breakfast or lunch. All families are encouraged to complete a Free and Reduced Meal Application. This will provide free or reduced meals and other benefits to qualifying families. Applications can be completed online at Please do not hesitate to reach out to our Food Service Department should you have any questions or require assistance in completing the application.

Please click here for more information on meal payments and how to place money into your child’s SchoolCafe account.

Additional questions should be directed to our Food Service Department at (717) 506-3305.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Students should bring a water bottle to school for personal use throughout the day.

An email was sent in late July to incoming kindergarten families to make them aware of whether their kindergartener has been assigned to our AM or PM session. Please reach out to your child's building principal with any specific questions about this assignment.

Calendar Image TECHNOLOGY

1:1 TECHNOLOGY HARDWARE: The District believes that supplying a device for all students is essential to their learning and development. Consistency in grade-level devices is essential to implementation of our curriculum, instruction, and assessment, while also allowing for sufficient support operations. More details about the program can be found on the Technology section of the District website.

In addition, a vital part of this program is partnering with our students and parents to ensure the devices are cared for and maintain good working conditions. We understand damage happens and offer families an insurance program to offset the costs of any damage that may occur. Details about the program and how to opt into the program are available on this subpage of the Technology 1:1 Program website.

TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT: At any time throughout the year, you may reach out to our Technology Helpdesk for technical assistance. We ask that if your child has had any technology device issues from their summer use of the device they submit tickets now and get them addressed before the start of school.

Staff and Students may go to to sign in and create a Technology helpdesk ticket. Parents/Guardians may click here to create a Technology helpdesk ticket, as needed. This information is also available on our website at
