Hello, Mountain View 8th Graders!

Can you believe that your time at Mountain View is coming to a close? No one could have predicted that your 8th grade year would end in quite this way, but we want each of you to know how proud the staff at MVS are of you. You all have put forth your best effort in very difficult circumstances, and you have made your families and teachers extremely proud of you.

Even though we cannot hold our scheduled 8th Grade Promotion ceremony, we still want to celebrate your accomplishments before we say good bye. So we are going to hold an 8th Grade Promotion Drive-Thru Ceremony!

Your teachers will be sharing a presentation with you all that includes a special message from Principal Miller, a picture slideshow, and more. On Wednesday, May 20th, all 8th grade families will be invited to participate in a Drive-Thru ceremony in our front student drop-off lane.

Please read the instructions below carefully. 
  • First, please note that walk-ups will not be permitted. Students and guardians must be in a vehicle in the student drop-off lane in front of the school.
  • Students will be invited to arrive according to their homeroom:
    • Mrs. Perry’s class - 9:00am
    • Mrs. Strahota’s class - 9:15am
    • Mrs. Lewellen’s class -9:30 am
    • Mrs. Lobrigo’s class - 9:45am
  • Cars will enter the pickup lane and give your name to Mr. Tokhi, who will be at the first crosswalk.
  • Certificates will be organized alphabetically at four separate tables: A-F, G-L, M-R, and S-Z.
  • When you are given the go-ahead, pull forward in the left lane. Pull over to the curb next to the table that corresponds with your last name. An 8th grade teacher will come to your car window with your promotion certificate.

  • As you pull forward, our PTA president will be taking photos of the students as they receive their certificates. If you do not want a picture taken of your student, please let one of the 8th grade teachers know. Pictures will be shared with you all and will be available for download.

We are looking forward to seeing you all to wish you well as you head off to high school. We will be following all health precautions and will be maintaining distance while we celebrate your accomplishments. Certificates for students who cannot attend will be mailed.

Picking up Student Items from Classrooms
Hello, Mountain View families, 

Please coordinate with your child's homeroom teacher if your student left medications, eye glasses, or items that are necessary for remote learning on campus.  They will arrange for a time for you to pick up those items.  

School supplies and assignments can be picked up after the stay at home order has been lifted by the governor's office. 

Please disregard our previous communication, and thank you for your flexibility. 

Take care!

MVS Update
Hello, Mountain View families! We miss all of you and know that remote learning is a new experience for everyone.  Be patient with your technology and yourselves and remember that we are all learning to adjust to the new situation.  

If you are still in need of a chromebook to check out, please email Mrs. Miles with your child's name and grade level to be added to the list.  Our next chromebook check-out time will be Friday, April 3rd, from 1-3pm.  

The front office staff are on campus to answer phone calls during normal office hours, 8am-4:30pm.  If you have specific questions regarding your child's workload, please reach out to the teacher directly.  Teachers are not currently on campus, but are checking their emails throughout the day. 

We still have student medications in the health office that we would like to return to parents/guardians.  We will be setting up times that parents can come retrieve medications.  Information will be sent out later this week. 

The teachers and staff at MVS miss seeing your happy faces every day.  Thank you for making Mountain View extraordinary!
