A message from Director Ronaldo Ortiz

Welcome Back North Valley Students!

Hope you had a safe and fun summer. It is the beginning of a brand-new school year. The start of the 2022-2023 school year will be a fresh start. I am so delighted that you have chosen to be a part of the North Valley community. Our successful staff welcomes you. Your drive and grit will help you on your journey to earning your high school diploma. At North Valley, we are committed to supporting you and your learning needs. Our mission is to have you complete all the graduation requirements and graduate.

For the 2022-2023 school year, North Valley will open with the same high expectations. Last year taught us that COVID was still a constant interrupter. We made a lot of concessions to accommodate students' needs, especially around attendance. The 24 graduates proved that nothing could stop us from succeeding. Nothing. Our students completed classes despite the difficult circumstances. Over the last 2 years, we worked together and overcame adversity.

This year will be no different. We are asking every student to commit to coming to school every day on time. If you do your part and attend school, we will be here to help you. Two important up-and-coming dates: North Valley’s back-to-school meet and greet on August 10th from 4:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. The first day of school is Monday, August 15th at 8:30 a.m.

 This year includes three new additions to our North Valley staff. Welcome to Mr. Decker, he is joining us as the new Math teacher. Mr. Decker is ready to bring his wealth of experience to help our students learn math in new and innovative ways. Another addition to our staff is Mr. Van Sant, he will be supporting admin as well as the mental health needs. We will be welcoming a new Community Reach therapist to our staff this upcoming school year as well.

I would like to conclude with our theme for the 2022-2023 school year:

Heraclitus once said: “No one ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and they are not the same person.

We are constantly evolving at North Valley as a school and as individuals.
