Construction traffic adjustments

We are excited about beginning construction on the John F. Rasnick Center and Chapel updates! With the construction comes some traffic and parking adjustments. Please note the following changes:

  • Pick-up and Drop-off: There will be a construction fence line in the parking lot adjacent to the Gym and Chapel. Middle school pick-up and drop-off will remain the same, but you will notice the exit traffic pattern has shifted away from the building.
  • Parking: Based on the construction, we will lose 30 parking spots closest to the Gym and Chapel. There is ample parking in the lot closest to the tennis courts.
  • Entrance for After-school Events: The typical entrance to the Gym and Chapel will be closed for the remainder of the second-semester. Entrance to all after-school events will be the front entrance of the school.

COVID Protocols Update

Thank you for your ongoing support and flexibility through the uncertainties of COVID. An email was sent to all CVCA families on December 31 regarding protocol updates and reminders for the second semester. As we watch the numbers on our campus and in the community, we will keep you informed up any additional changes and updates.

Schedule adjustments for this week

We will have late starts on both Wednesday, January 5 and Thursday, January 6. Both days will be used for additional professional development for faculty to begin the second-semester. Students may still be dropped off at 7:30 a.m. if needed, but school will begin at 9:22 a.m. on both Wednesday and Thursday this week only.

Check out our New Website!

Have you seen the new CVCA website? Over the holidays, we updated with a new look and some additional information. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the layout of the new MY CVCA page. All of the previous information is still there, it just may look a little different.
