Human Growth & Development Meeting

The state of Washington requires public schools to provide Human Growth & Development education to 4th and 5th grade students. In addition, schools are to provide HIV/AIDS education and prevention to all students each year beginning in the 5th grade, this includes the middle school and high school level.

The Longview School District is holding a meeting in the administration building at 2715 Lilac Street on Thursday, November 14 at 6:00 PM for any parent who has concerns about the materials. All instructional materials for both Human Growth & Development and HIV/AIDS will also be available for review at the district office from Tuesday, November 12 until Friday, November 15 from 9 am – 4 pm.

Following the review of materials, parents who wish to have their child excused from participation in either or both of the programs must sign a release form.  State law requires that a parent or guardian must review the materials before they can have their child or legal ward excused from participation.

Those parents who have no reservations about their child’s participation do not need to attend the meeting.

If you have questions about this correspondence, you may call the Curriculum & Instruction Department at 360-575-7009.

Urgent Communication

The Longview Police Department has given the district the “All Clear” signal. Any students still at school will now be allowed to take the bus or walk home. Students riding the bus will be dropped off at their normal bus stop. The school district worked closely with the Longview Police Department to keep our students and staff members safe, and to provide families clear information during this incident, and we appreciate your patience.

Safety and security of our students and staff members is our top priority.

New Crosswalk

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

During the summertime a new crosswalk was installed in the front of CVG.  We will no longer have road crossings at 30th and Pennsylvania or 30th and Pine.  Please direct your students to use the newly installed crosswalk that is directly in front of CVG. In addition, many of you are aware of how busy our parking lot can be before and after school.  Please use the crosswalk that is in our parking lot to transition from parking to the school.  Safety is paramount at CVG, please use safe routes as directed.  Thank you for your understanding and I wish you well as we all transition back to school.

CVG Classroom Assignments

Dear CVG Families,

Welcome back to a new year! As a system, we are always looking for ways to improve the start of the school year.  This year, we have decided to announce student classroom assignments. We believe that this can help soften student and family worry by letting you know who your child’s teacher will be prior to the day before school.  We are excited for this change and hope that you will find it a success.

Our teachers have spent a tremendous amount of time working to provide best placements for all our students. The goal is to balance classrooms and provide the best opportunities for success. Please note; classroom assignments are final unless changes are warranted by enrollment. We will be posting classroom rosters on the front door at CVG on Friday, August 23, at 4:00 pm.  Please do not post lists on social media.

In addition, I have provided a reminder of beginning of the year activities:

  • Kindergarten Round up: August 27th (12:00-1:00 pm)
  • Meet the Teacher Night: August 27th (5:00-6:00 pm, 1st grade – 5th grade)
    • 4:30 PTA will serve popsicles under the covered area before meet the teacher
    • Bring your school supplies if you can
    • Bring your smile we cannot wait to see you! J
  • August 28th First day of school 1st-5th grade 8:45-3:15 (Kindergarten Family meetings start)


Thank you,
