Valley VAdvice for Schools/Athletes Regarding MRSA
Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus is an infection that is resistant to commonly used antibiotics such as penicillins and currently available cephalosporins.  MRSA has emerged in communities and can cause infections in otherwise healthy people.  Most MRSA infections are skin infections that appear as red and swollen sores or boils. MRSA can be spread easily among athletes. For more information about MRSA from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Click Here .

Valley School Song
Cheer-Cheer for old Valley High
Shake down the thunder from all the sky.
We will never forget her name,
We’ll win for Valley’s greater fame.
What though the odds be great or small
Old Valley High will win over all.
As her loyal sons are marching
Onward to Victory.

 

Valley Fight Song
Oh, we will fight, fight, fight, for Valley High
And may her colors ever fly
And we will fight, with a might for Valley High
With a will to do or die…..Rah! Rah! Rah!
Loyal son forever true
And we will fight the battle through
And we hit that line we’ll hit it hard
Every yard for Valley High!!!
