For Parents

In Chippewa Valley Schools we believe that parent involvement is the key to a great education. We have compiled resources below that will help as we navigate virtual learning, both for our CVVA and students who are temporarily in remote learning.

We are working hard to make this a one-stop-shop for resources, we will continue to add resources that will assist families as the school year progresses.
