YEARLY STUDENT VERIFICATION
Student verification must be completed EVERY year that your student attends Happy Valley Middle School, whether changes have occurred or not. Through ParentVUE, parents/guardians can complete the verification process and update any changes to their student's information.
Verification and registration for the 2023-2024 school year will begin March 1.
In order to promote safety and efficiency, the school district has set specific regulations for riding the school bus. The driver is the official in charge and that control is absolute. The administration of this school will support the driver without reservation. Violation of bus rules, displays of disrespect toward the driver, other adults, or fellow students will cause loss of bus riding privileges.
Students that need to ride a bus other than the one assigned to them, or get off at a bus stop other than their own, must have signed written permission from their parent/guardian. Phone permission will not be accepted.
Each student will be assigned a locker and issued a combination. Combinations should not be given to anyone other than the occupant of the locker. Lockers are not to be shared. If any locker problem evolves, notify the office immediately. Student lockers are the property of the school and are subject to search. Students are subject to North Clackamas Guidelines for items found in lockers. Periodic locker inspections are made to examine locker occupancy, condition, cleanliness and to check for lost textbook and library books.
To eliminate safety hazards, backpacks MUST be stored in student lockers.

Student Medication Information
Students may not take or carry any prescription or over-the-counter medications while at school unless written request from the parent/guardian or health care provider is approved. Medication (prescription or over-the-counter) that is needed for your student to remain in school must come in a fully labeled original container. A parent/guardian must fill out and sign the Medication Assistance Form and submit it to the main office.
Only small containers can be kept at school due to limited space. All medications will be stored in the office in a locked cabinet. Parents/guardians will be asked to pick up medications at the end of the year.
Sports physicals are required prior to participation in interscholastic sports. Physicals are valid for 24 months from the date it was issued by a health-care provider.
If your student is coming from a North Clackamas School District school, the health and immunization records will automatically be transferred - no need to fill out more forms. A Tdap (Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis) booster given after age 10 is required for 7th grade. If we do not have this in our records, you will get reminders to update immunizations so your student can attend school. For free/low cost immunizations, call the Health Department at (503) 655-8471.
