Safe School Helpline

As a school system, we are committed to creating and sustaining a comprehensive, coordinated effort to improve the overall safety and well-being of our students and staff. To do this, we believe we must partner with community-wide programs and initiatives involving parents, teachers, administrators, local law enforcement, mental health and wellness professionals.
Just like our new refreshed high school, we hope the new website reflects the progressive nature of a Penns Valley education.
