December 16-18th Reminders
Hello, Mountain View families, 

As we head into the winter break, we wanted to send out a few reminders and ensure that all families are aware of the process for reporting any COVID-related exposures while the school is closed. 

First, we want to remind our preschool families that Thursday will be a remote learning day, and Friday there is no preschool due to the earlier release times. 

Second, we would like our K-8 families to be aware that Friday is a 12 pm (noon) dismissal.  All students must either head home or be picked up immediately at noon.  The school will be closed and locked at 1 p.m.  Students will not be permitted to stay on campus after dismissal except for Dens Club students scheduled to attend on Friday.  

Third, we want to ensure that parents can still report any COVID-related exposures or positive test results while we are closed.  To report a COVID exposure or positive test, parents can either utilize the district's online reporting form or they can leave a message on the school's main line (623-876-7450 - when the menu begins, press 0 and then leave a message) or on the nurse's line (when the menu begins, press 2).  Please do not leave a COVID-related message on the attendance line over break, as this line will not be checked until we return on January 4th. 

School will resume on Monday, January 4th. The office will reopen at 8 a.m. on the 4th, and school begins at 9. 

Finally, we wish you all a very happy and safe holiday season!

New Online Student Positive COVID Reporting Form
The District has created a new Online Reporting Form that parents/guardians should use to report a student's positive test result for COVID-19. 

If someone in the household has tested positive, please leave a message on the Attendance line (623-876-7453) and keep all students home until the nurse or administrator calls to verify all the information.

Welcome back Mountain Lions!
Hello, Mountain Lions, 

Our staff are so excited to have you all returning to campus over the next two weeks!  We want to ensure that you have important information about returning before Monday.  

Monday, September 14th - All of our Preschool through 4th grade students who are enrolled in the in-person learning option will be back on campus.  Our gates will open at 8:40am for soft start, and classes will begin at 9:00.  Monday is an early release day, with students releasing at 1:45pm.  The rest of the week, students will release at 3:45 p.m. 

Monday, September 21st - All of our 5th grade through 8th grade students who are enrolled in the in-person learning option will be back on campus.  This means all of our our in-person students will be back on the 21st!  

Remember that iSchool students will remain at home and learning online.  Teachers will not be offering live zoom or Google instruction for iSchool students once their in-person students return to campus.  Students enrolled in iSchool who have questions about expectations moving forward should contact their teacher(s).  Parents who wish to change their student's learning format - to iSchool or to in-person learning - can contact the front office.   

To assist with social distancing and updated policies, there are a few procedural changes that will be enforced beginning on Monday, the 14th: 

1. We will be opening up the doors by the iExplore lab to allow for an additional entrance each morning.  Students will be able to enter the campus through the Kindergarten gate, main courtyard, bus loop, and the doors by iExplore.  

2. Masks, face shields, or neck gaiters are required on campus.  Please make sure that your student comes to campus with one of these options daily.  

3. Please ensure that your student comes to campus with a water bottle, as water fountains will only be used to refill bottles.  

4. All students are now eligible to receive free breakfast and lunch through the end of the semester in December! Students can still bring their own lunch, but any student who does not have a lunch will be able to obtain a free school lunch. 

5. To assist with social distancing, Mountain View is not permitting visitors to enter the campus beyond the front lobby. For the time being, the front office will not be permitted to deliver items to students during the school day - forgotten homework, supplies, or lunch.  If a student forgets their lunch at home, they can obtain free lunch in the cafeteria through December.  If a student forgets a homework assignment, the student can turn it in the next school day and will not be penalized. 

6. If your student is new to Mountain View and will be coming to campus for the first time, there will be staff posted at many locations around campus and will be able to assist your child getting to their classroom.  We are not able to permit parents to escort their child to the classroom, but our staff are ready and willing to assist.  Students can always come to the front office and the office staff will help them find their classroom. 

We look forward to seeing all of our Mountain Lions in the next few weeks.  Have a safe and happy weekend!
