The Cheerleader Mini Camp will be held in the Kankakee Valley High School Aux Gym Tuesday, January 22 and Thursday, January 24 from 5:00 - 6:00 pm. Cost of the mini camp is $25. Girls K-8 will be learning "Performance" cheerleading consisting of a dance, cheer, and chant. They will also be doing some stretching, conditioning, splits, tumbling, jumps, stunting, and games! Each participant will receive a 2019 Basketball Pink Mini Camp T-Shirt and free admission to Friday night's game if they are wearing their new mini camp T-shirt. The performance is Friday, January 25 at the Varsity game vs. Highland. The girls will be performing during halftime with the high school cheerleaders. It is Coaches Against Cancer Night so the game will be busy! Game starts at 7 pm but get there by 6:30 and bring the girls to the cheerleader section where they can sit for the game.

eLearning Days

As Kankakee Valley School Corporation continues to make technology an active part of teaching and learning in our district, we are continuing to have eLearning Days. eLearning Days allow for school districts to offer instruction digitally so that schools are able to make up lost days due to inclement weather. As you know, the possibility of bad weather is always real for all of us in NW Indiana.

Using Pin Code When Calling Into School

This year the school has implemented a new security measure to protect the safety of our students.  When parents or guardians call into school, they must provide the school with the Pin they created at registration when asking for certain  confidential information (e.g. grades, health issues, discipline, attendance, address, contact info., family/sibling info., etc.). This also includes information that pertains to student location (bus number/route), or financial information (balances), or early dismissal arrangements.  We understand that this will take time to get used to but we are only looking out for your child’s safety.   This is to ensure we are adhering to FERPA and HIPAA requirements.  If a parent forgets their Pin code, they can log in to Family Access and re-set it. Otherwise, they will need to come to the office and provide proper Identification.
