Back to School Information


The first day of the 2014 - 2015 school year for all students (except kindergartners) will be Wednesday, Sept. 3.

First day of school for kindergartners?

Kindergarten students in Corvallis experience a “gentle start” to their first year in school. During the first week of school (Sept. 3-9), kindergarten teachers will meet one-on-one with students and their parents. This gives teachers an opportunity to get to know the children and complete some quick, informal assessments with each one.

Parents should call their school office to find out what day and time their child is to arrive at school the first time.  All Kindergarten classes will be in session by Sept 10 More information about "gentle start"

 When do fall sports practices begin at the high schools?
Fall sports teams at both high schools (football, volleyball, cross-country and soccer) offer an optional conditioning week Aug. 11-15. Fall sports practices and tryouts begin on Aug. 18. Student athletes must first be cleared for participation by turning in the necessary paperwork, including an emergency information card and a signed code of conduct form. Each school's forms can be downloaded from the athletics section of the school's Web site -- the links are listed below.

Athletic fees also must be paid. The first and second OSAA sports fees are $150 each; a third sport costs $100.

All freshmen, juniors or new students need a physical exam prior to beginning practice. Sports physicals will be available at Corvallis High School on Aug. 13 from 2 to 5 p.m. for a fee of $30; scholarships are available. Crescent Valley High School athletes can get a free physical exam in the training room on Aug. 16 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (any donations will go to the CV football program).

These dates will be posted on each school's Web site.
How can I get a Student-Parent Handbook?
