Dear CLV Students, Parents and Community Members, 

CLV High School has been off to a great start! Students are happy to be back in classes and it’s been wonderful to see so many students involved in sports, extracurricular clubs and activities, both in and outside of school. We have a tremendous group of students representing Cattaraugus-Little Valley in a very positive manner.  

Our school counselors worked diligently all summer to provide a variety of elective offerings to students. We also offer college courses through Jamestown Community College, Saint Bonaventure University, and Syracuse University. We currently have 64 students attending CTE BOCES programs, as well. This well-rounded group of students have shown nothing but resiliency over the last year and a half.  

Our teachers attended multiple professional development opportunities over the summer related to curriculum, technology, online instruction, and social emotional learning (SEL); just to name a few. The faculty and staff at CLV continue to go above and beyond for the whole child, day in and day out. Our staff members are committed to supporting all students both in and outside of the classroom. I think I can speak for everyone when I say how amazing it is to have students back in class five days a week! A huge thank you goes out to all the parents, guardians, and community members who have supported staff and students throughout this pandemic. 

Our Educational Support Coordinator, Megan Brown, has been extremely busy supporting our students who are at home learning for any COVID related reason. Her addition to our team has been extremely beneficial and her commitment to students to maintain engagement, prevent additional learning gaps and support children, has not gone unnoticed. We are very lucky to have her! 

Guidance and important information will be posted on the High School Principal Webpage. Parents call also join my High School Parent Remind App to receive text messages by texting @clvhsp to 81010.
