USE OF CELL PHONES BY STUDENTS:
Possession of a cell phone by a student on school district property is a privilege that may be revoked if the
student does not follow this policy:

is NOT allowed during classroom or instructional time. If a student uses his/her phone during instructional time and the teacher asks for it to be handed over to him/her, the student must relinquish the phone immediately or will be disciplined for failure to cooperate.
THE STUDENT WHO POSSESSES A CELL PHONE ASSUMES RESPONSIBILITY FOR ITS CARE. AT
NO TIME IS THE DISTRICT RESPONSIBLE FOR PREVENTING THEFT, LOSS OR DAMAGE TO A

need to bring a copy of your driver’s license and insurance and complete the form that you can pick up in
the Security office. If we have your information on hand we can notify you if you leave your lights on etc.

VETERAN’S DAY ASSEMBLY
In November, Vancouver Councilman Larry Smith is going to be the
keynote speaker for Fort Vancouver
High School’s annual Veterans Day
Assembly on November 7th. We are
also inviting veterans from the Vancouver community to partake of our
annual Veterans Day potluck.
The
assembly will begin at 9:15 am with
the potluck to follow. All veterans
from the community are invited to
attend.
“MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING”
Fort Vancouver High School Theater Department, with the help of
Fort's Culinary Arts Program and Mcloughlin Middle School, will
be hosting its first annual "CAKESPEARE!" In conjunction with
the Portland Playhouse Theater, we will be hosting a Dessert Theater
Performance of "Much Ado About Nothing" at Mcloughlin Middle
School on November 13th, 14th, and 15th from 6:30 to 8:30
p.m. Fort Vancouver High School's award winning Culinary Arts
Department will provide delicious baked delicacies during intermission and Vancouver's best coffee shop, "The Rivermaiden," will be

FVHS Center for International Studies Update
We are continuing our planning efforts to become a school-wide international
studies program. We are proud of our diverse Fort community and we believe
it’s important for all Fort Vancouver High School students to be fully prepared
to compete, connect, and cooperate with others locally and globally. Becoming
an international studies school will help us accomplish that goal.
An international studies school is an environment where all students are becoming globally competent. Globally competent students are:
Investigating the world by asking important questions and conducting research about locally and globally
significant issues.
Recognizing perspectives, both of others and themselves, to better understand interactions, situations, and
events in our world.
Communicating ideas in an appropriate manner to diverse audiences to positively impact understanding
and collaborate in an interdependent world.
Taking action, both personally and collaboratively, to positively contribute to local, regional, and global
issues.
Part of our transition to an international studies school includes partnering with the Asia Society and their
International Studies Schools Network (ISSN). The ISSN is comprised of 30 schools around the United States.
While each ISSN school is different, we are all committed to developing the global competence of all of our
students. To learn more about the ISSN, go to http://asiasociety.org/international-studies-schools-network .
For more information, please contact Allison Darke, Resource Coordinator for International Studies and
World Language Programs, at (360) 313-4000 or [email protected] .
Science Fair—The Scientific Method
Fort's ChemClub is sponsoring a Science Fair for all interested students. Entry
forms can be obtained in room 520. Completed projects must be submitted
by Mon, Oct. 6th. Posters will be displayed the first day of parent teacher conferences (Thurs, Oct. 23rd). The theme of the fair is "The Scientific Method."
Make sure you complete paperwork if you want to continue with clubs from last year
or have an idea for a new club. Pick up the forms in the Security office. The deadline
is Wednesday, October 1st.
A Reminder:
Most recent guidelines from the Clark County Health department.
Children who become ill with a gastrointestinal illness (vomiting and/or diarrhea) should remain home for 48
hours after the last time they vomited or had diarrhea.
Research has shown that the body can still shed the virus and infect others for 48 hours after the symptoms have
resolved.
The Flu vaccine is available NOW!
According to the Centers for Disease Control’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices,
The Flu Vaccine is recommended for all school age children. The Flu vaccine is
recommended to prevent illness, missed school, lost work time for parents and to decrease risk of grandparents, and infants becoming ill.
Getting vaccinated is the single best way for people to protect not only children
against flu, but their loved ones as well.
INTERVENTION SPECIALIST
Fort Vancouver's intervention specialist, Susan Peng-Cowan provides groups and support with students who are struggling with a myriad of issues related to alcohol & drug use. Concerned parents can
use a toolkit as a resource at Partnership for Drug Free kids http://www.drugfree.org/the-parenttoolkit. If you have a concern about a student whom you suspect may be impacted by substance use,
please contact Susan at [email protected] or 360-313-4155.
