Update for Senior Photo Opportunity: 5/18/2020

Hello Seniors,


Congratulations on reaching this important milestone in your lives, we are excited about your photo opportunity on the 22nd. Recent guidelines from the Professional Education Department (PED) shared on May 17th require that we must comply with the following for our photo opportunity for all seniors:


We must strictly follow the current public health orders & guidance issued by the State, this includes wearing masks and practicing social distancing while in public spaces.
All family members who attend this photo opportunity must stay in their vehicles while on school grounds.
Reminder HVPS will not be sanctioning or sponsoring any parades in accordance with the current public health orders and guidance from the PED.


Your safety is paramount and my number one concern. More information on COVID-safe practices can be found on the CDC’s website at I look forward to seeing you all on Friday. Thank you and Congratulations!

Shara Montoya, Principal
