Dear Parents,

I am truly sorry to inform you of the passing of a beloved teacher at CVCHS. Mr. Beck has been a long-term teacher at CVCHS in the mathematics department. Sadly, he passed away this morning very unexpectedly. He is dearly loved by students and staff alike and will surely be missed.

Our math department teachers will be filling in for the remainder of the year so as not to interrupt instruction this year.

We are providing counseling services in the guidance lounge for any student needing assistance. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.
