Transportation: CV (morning only) Skills Center bus runs depart immediately at 7:30 a.m. from our bus lanes on the south side of CVHS. This bus stops at Barker High School, the Valley Skill Center location at 10304 E. 9th and the North Skills Center at 4141 N. Regal. Students must be prompt! Busses can not wait for tardy students. Students are also allowed to drive themselves; however, this option is up to the parent’s/guardian’s discretion. Afternoon Skill Center students and Aero Space/Advanced Manufacturing Program students must provide their own transportation. Students need to find their own transportation to CV on Thursday mornings to catch the 7:30 a.m. bus. All District buses run later on Thursdays due to teacher collaboration and are not available to get students to school before the Skill Center bus leaves CV Thursdays.
Lunch: We recommend students bring their own lunch as time is very limited in transferring between the two schools.
Absences: Absences must be called in to the Skill Center as well as CVHS. The attendance line at the Skill Center is 354-7400 and Central Valley’s attendance line is 228-5101.Go to www.cvsd.org/centralvalley to view more information on Skill Center, including the bus schedules and the calendars for both districts. Since Skill Center is a Spokane Public School, their calendar is slightly different than Central Valley’s. Holidays and inservice days do not necessarily coincide.
Skill Center students are still responsible for meeting all high school requirements including:
·The Culminating Project
·Daily/weekly bulletins, which inform students of school and class activities, pictures, graduation information, scholarships, testing information and dates, etc. Most of this information is distributed during Advisory.
Information: Students who have morning classes at Skill Center will not be in Advisory. Therefore, daily and weekly bulletins are available on top of the Skill Center file cabinet which is located in the Counseling Center. Each morning Skill Center student will have a personalized file. Information in this file can be picked up on a daily basis.
