Band Parent Meeting!!
There will be a band parent meeting and instrument showing on
Wednesday, August 31th at 6:30pm
in the Pike Valley Elementary Music Room.
Students and families will have the opportunity to receive information on purchasing or renting a band instrument for the school year. You can also get supplies needed for each instrument.
In order for the band to be as successful as possible, it is important to have balanced instrumentation among the various instruments. For this reason, there may only be a small number of places available on each instrument.
(Just like a sports team, players are needed in all positions!)
Listed below are the items each student will need.
All Band students will need an Essential Elements 2000 Book 1 for their instrument.
Size 2 1/2 reeds(at least 3)
Size 2 ½ reeds(at least 3)
Snare sticks and bell mallets
**Note**There are many excellent used instruments available through various sources. I recommend that students who plan to purchase or who have used instruments should get them checked over by an instrument repair technician or your teacher. This is in order to make sure that you are getting a quality instrument that is in good playing condition, which is vital to being successful in band.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me!

Wednesday, August 3rd

The online application for Free/Reduced meals for 2022-2023 is now available. Please utilize the online application if possible as we will not be able to give you a determination on the spot at enrollment. Having this information in advance of enrollment will be more accurate and expedient. If for any reason you are unable to access the online application, please call the District Office at 785-335-2206 to request a paper copy. A letter detailing the Free/Reduced meal prices and general FAQ are being sent via email. The link to the online application is https://schoolmealsapp.ksde.org/Home/welcome/D0426
PV USD 426 will have Free Preschool Screening in the fall. Use the QR code to fill out the form. We will contact you later to schedule the screening. Thank you
The Pike Valley USD 426 Board of Education regular meeting has been moved from June 13 to June 27 at 8pm. The meeting will be at the Board Room in Scandia.
School Year 2022-2023 Breakfast & Lunch Update
The USDA will no longer have the authority to allow schools to serve free meals to all students as has been relied on for the last two years. This means that parents will be obligated to fill out the Free/Reduced Application to determine whether their child/children will be able to eat at a free or reduced price. Fortunately, KSDE Child Nutrition & Wellness has developed an Online Application for Free and Reduced-Priced Meals to make the determination easier for parents and staff. Beginning July 1, 2022, you may access the online application with your computer, tablet, or smartphone. If for any reason you are unable to access the online application, a paper application will be made available to you.
Since we are unable to accept any applications before July 1, the link to the online application and any other details will be shared June 30 and in the enrollment packets. Please be on the lookout for further details on this process.
Schools can no longer offer free meals for all students. The following are a list of fees for this coming school year. You can still apply for free or reduced lunches.
It was a great first day for PV Summer Exploration. Thank you for allowing us to continue to educate and work with your kids. We are truly blessed. Just a couple of reminders:
Entrance and exit will be at the west doors facing the alley.
All children need to bring water bottles.
All children need to bring their school pencil boxes, if they haven't already.
Thank you, The PV Summer Crew
