    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    As the national dialogue on school safety continues, we want to emphasize that our students’ well-being remains our highest and most important priority.  Our administration, faculty, and staff are committed to providing a safe, supportive learning environment that empowers our students. Safety Teams have reviewed all protocols and procedures with local law enforcement, and we will continue to drill our preparedness in various situations.  Over the next few weeks, administration and faculty will be holding conversations with students to ensure their concerns are addressed, and their understanding of safety procedures are clear.  Our support staff is available to any students who may require additional assistance in processing the recent events that have affected our educational communities.  

    The phrase “See Something Say Something” has renewed meaning for all citizens, but especially our young people.  If you or your child is concerned about the motivations of certain groups or individuals, we urge you to contact law enforcement and/or your building principal, or use our online tip form to let us know what is going on.  

    Now more than ever, we must come together as a Wappingers community to provide our students with the highest level of social/emotional support so they are empowered in order to achieve academic success in our schools.

    Sincerely,

    The Secondary School Principals

    Attendance Action Plan

     The vision of Orchard View Alternative High School is to create a supportive, academic environment where students value hard work, and individual goals are achieved.  Orchard View students learn to make positive choices that enable them to take an active role in their education and future career.

    Of course one of the positive choices we expect them to make is their choice to come to school each and every day.  Student attendance is taken extremely seriously at Orchard View Alternative High School.  We recognize the direct correlation between daily attendance and its significant impact on student learning.  We support a diverse group of learners who all have a unique story to tell.   Every student has chosen to come to OV for the same reason: to have a chance to become a successful high school graduate.  

    Here are some of the attendance intervention strategies that we typically implement in our school:
