Principal’s Message for August 2019

August 2019

Dear Lakeview Families,

WELCOME TO THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR!  We hope this letter finds you well.  As the lazy days of summer continue to dwindle down, we hope you are soaking up every second of the summer and making new memories with your families.  Lakeview staff is looking forward to reconnecting with the students of Lakeview very soon!  The teachers are working hard to get their classrooms ready and curriculum set.  We cannot wait to hear the sounds of the students’ voices filling the hallways.  Thank you for preparing your children for this upcoming school year and we look forward to continue to work with you as partners in their education.

We have several exciting dates to share with you:

Wednesday, August 7th, 9-11am and 5-7pm is School Information Day.  This day is for new enrollees OR providing proof of residency for the students of Lakeview School.  There is NOTHING else taking place on this day.  If you need to register your child OR finish your registration, please come to school during these hours.  We will be accepting medical forms also. Our secretaries will be there to help you with the registration process.  Please note, if your registration is NOT complete, your child will NOT be placed in a class.  We will be finalizing class lists on the 8th, so please finish your residency requirements.

We will be mailing each family their child’s teacher placement.  You will be receiving these letters the week of August 11th.  Please note…. the staff has worked diligently to place every child in an environment which best suits their learning needs; therefore, placement changes will not be honored unless there is an extreme circumstance.

Thursday, August 15th, 5:00-6:30pm is our Back to School & Curriculum Night. Families can drop off supplies and hear their teacher present important information. More details are coming soon.

Monday, August 19th is the first day of school for first through sixth grade students.  This is a full day of school (8:40-3:00).

Tuesday August 20th is kindergarten screening. Appointment times are scheduled and parents notified.

Monday, August 26th is the first day for kindergarten students.  This is a full day of school (8:40-3:00).

On the first day of school, we will be lining up outside.  The teachers will be outside the school building in the front parking lot.  They will be arranged in grade level teams and have nametags on.  This should make it easier for you and your child to find the correct teacher.  Once your child arrives at school, please direct him/her to go to the blacktop, find their teacher and line up with their class.   If you are having difficulty finding your child’s line, please locate one of our staff members.  All staff members will be able to assist you in locating your child’s teacher.

In case of rain, all the teachers will be inside the school standing outside of their classrooms.  Please have your child enter the school.  Staff members will assist your child in finding his/her classroom.
