Please take a few minutes at home to carefully check your child’s health before he/she leaves for school each morning. The following are a few suggestions, which may help to guide you:


~Illness during the night
~Fever is present (100 degrees or greater)
~Complaints of nausea, upset stomach, vomiting, headache, diarrhea prior to leaving for school
~Development of a rash on face and/or body
~Has a severe cold, cough and/or sore throat
~Has inflamed eye(s) with discharge from them

Please Remember: An ill child cannot function properly in the classroom. The spread of illness and disease through class or school can be more easily monitored if sick children remain at home during the acute stage of an illness. If the school health tech detects any of the above, your child will be sent home.

People with influenza-like illness are to remain home until at least 24 hours after they are free of fever (100o F [37.8o C]) without the use of fever-reducing medications.

A student’s absence should be reported on the School Absence Hotline by calling: (858) 748-2038.

A Message from Dr. Johnsen, Valley Principal


Valley students, family and community:


As we come to the close of the 2014-15 school year and I come to the end of my time at Valley I want to take a moment to thank you for helping to make our school one of the very best in PUSD.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as principal here and will miss everyone greatly.  Valley is a special place.  Our kids have their sights set on college and I have no doubt that with the support of our amazing teachers and families they will achieve all of their goals.  We don't know who our new principal will be yet but I can't wait to tell them that they are coming to the gem in PUSD's crown!  Have a great summer vacation and an awesome 2015-16 school year!

Andy Johnsen, Ed.D.
