School Closure - Weather Delays/Late Start

2 months ago

If inclement weather conditions occur during the night, the district office will decide whether to:

  • Hold school (regular hours)
  • Hold school (delayed start) - All schools will start two hours late
  • Close school

 Notification 

In the event that our schools are closed or are starting late:

  • Automated phone calls and emails are sent to all district families through the School Messenger system (the system is automatically populated with the primary phone numbers and email addresses available in the Skyward/Family Access system).
  • A notice is posted on the district Facebook page - www.facebook.com/NachesValleySchoolDistrict 
  • A notice is placed on the district website - www.nvsd.org
  • Local television and radio stations are notified.
  • A notice is sent to the statewide public emergency notification system - FlastAlert Newswire

Alternate snow bus routes are routes that our buses will temporarily service in lieu of the normally scheduled routes due to adverse weather & road conditions.  Whenever Naches Valley School District's  “Alternate Snow Routes” are in effect it will be referenced by the media or our mass notification system.  If buses run on alternate routes in the morning they will also run the same alternate routes in the afternoon.

Because we know many are getting ready for school or leaving early, we try to get these notifications out to our school community between 5:15-5:45 a.m. If we are fully certain of the situation the evening in advance, we will let our families know at that time.  If Naches Valley School District is not mentioned during the newscasts, through School Messenger or on our website, you will know our schools are open and buses are operating on or near the normal schedule.

Threats: "Scary Clown" Phenomena.

5 months ago

By Duane Lyons

Naches Valley School District Parents, Guardians and Patrons:

As you are all aware, our region is currently experiencing a rash of anonymous threats and harassing social media messages regarding the "Scary Clown" phenomena. This epidemic has been working its way across the United States since August and has now arrived at our doorstep.

Our local Educational Service District 105 has been in touch with the Washington Fusion Center (the primary intelligence gathering body in Washington State) and local law enforcement and researched this issue and there are no indications of any viable threats. To date, all arrests across the country related to this issue have been few in number and for minor incidents (usually just for making threats of harm).

Further information regarding the Scary Clown phenomena can be found from these credible sources:

 New York Times http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/30/us/creepy-clown-hoaxes-arrests.html?_r=0

ABC News http://abcnews.go.com/US/creepy-clown-incidents-law-enforcement-white-house/story?id=42555017

All threats of violence should be treated seriously. At Naches Valley School District, we have security measures in place and are on heightened alert to ensure the safety of all of our students.

The Naches Valley School District is working with the ESD 105 School Safety Operations & Coordination Center (SSOCC) to continue monitoring the situation and track social media using their social media intelligence tools.

We will act accordingly as we receive updates from our law enforcement partners.


High School Credit Change/Schedule Change

about 1 year ago

High School Credit Change

Last spring, the state legislature approved Senate Bill 6652 changing the number of credits required to graduate from high school. The change means our students now must earn 24-credits over their time here to graduate from Naches Valley High. The new requirements also include a third science credit, a second fine art credit, and two world language credits. To meet the challenges this poses for many of our students, the high school will be shifting to a “modified block” schedule to allow for more credits to be earned. The following is a list of frequently asked questions about next year’s schedule.
