Community members, staff, and parents have expressed concerns about the safety of Mountain View students while crossing Streeter Avenue at dismissal. Mountain View is a neighbor school surrounded by a community which is growing and flourishing. New procedures will need to be put in place to ensure the safety of our students and parents crossing Streeter Ave.
Families are asked to:
- Cross the street in smaller groups (of around 20 people).
- Follow the cross walker and teacher's direction. They are there for your safety.
- When the countdown timer reaches 20, please stop and wait for the next light to cross the street.
The application window for the district’s Dual Language Immersion program opens November 1 and runs through December 9. We are actively recruiting 2017-2018 Kindergarten parents who would like their child to be bilingual and bi-literate, demonstrate academic competence in two languages, and develop an understanding of and an appreciation for other cultures. If you are interested in this exciting opportunity, please click on the link for more information on Parent Information Nights and our program application process.
Family Code Night is a free, school-family event in which students grades 4-8 pair up with their parent or guardian to do their first hour of coding, together. The effect is dramatic: parents and kids love making the transition from consumers of code to creators of code and families emerge eager to support computer science learning at home and at school. Every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science. Get a head start by joining us for Family Code Night!
STUDENT PICK-UP/REMOVING STUDENTS FROM SCHOOL
In cases of illness or emergency involving students at school, the school will contact the parent/legal guardian or relatives/friends listed on the student’s emergency card. ONLY individuals listed on the student’s emergency card will be permitted to pick up the student. Any person picking up a student for illness or emergency after being contacted by the school will be required to show identification and to sign the student out using the school log before they pick up or speak to the student. (E.C. 49408)
If a student is being picked up for any non-school related reason the person removing or picking up the student must have written permission from the parent/legal guardian even if they are listed on the emergency card. In all cases, the site administrator will be notified that the student is being removed from class or being picked up. Even with written permission, access to speak with the student may be denied at the discretion of the site administrator in an effort to reduce interruptions in instructional time.
In the case of medical and other such appointments, the person picking up a student must have written permission to pick up the child from school during school hours for the day of the appointment only. The written document must specify the name of the person who may pick the child up from school during school hours, the specific date, the purpose, and it must be signed by the parent. The school will obtain a photocopy of the identification of the person picking up the student, attach it to the parent’s note, and document the information in the student’s electronic file. Notes for ongoing or future appointments will not be accepted.
If the person picking up the student does not have written permission, the school may contact the parent to obtain written 13 permission either in writing, by email, or verbally, if necessary. Without parent permission, a student may not be released to a family friend/relative, even if they are listed on the emergency card.
RECOGER A LOS ALUMNOS/SACAR A LOS ALUMNOS DE LA ESCUELA
En casos de enfermedad o emergencia que involucran a los alumnos de la escuela, la escuela se comunicará con los padres/tutor legal o parientes/amistades nombradas en la tarjeta de emergencia del alumno. SOLAMENTE se les permitirá a los individuos nombrados en la tarjeta de emergencia del alumno recoger al alumno. A toda persona que recoja a un alumno debido a enfermedad o emergencia después de haber sido contactado por la escuela tendrá que mostrar identificación y firmar la salida del alumno en el registro escolar antes de recoger o hablar con el alumno. (E.C. 49408).
Si se recoge al alumno por un motivo que no está relacionado a la escuela, la persona que recoja al alumno debe tener permiso de los padres/tutor legal por escrito aun cuando están nombrados en la tarjeta de emergencia. En todo caso, se le notificará al administrador del plantel que el alumno será sacado del salón o será recogido. Aun con el permiso por escrito, se les pidiera rechazar el tener acceso para hablar con el alumno por discreción del administrador del plantel, en el esfuerzo de reducir las interrupciones del tiempo de enseñanza.
En caso de una cita médica o otra cita como tal, la persona quien recoja al alumno debe tener permiso por escrito para el día de esa cita solamente para recoger al alumno durante las horas hábiles de la escuela. El documento por escrito debe especificar quien puede recoger al alumno de la escuela durante las horas hábiles de clases, la fecha específica, el propósito y debe ser firmada por el padre de familia. La escuela hará una fotocopia de la tarjeta de identificación de la persona quien recogerá al alumno y la anexará a la nota de los padres, y se documentará la información en el expediente electrónico del alumno. No se aceptarán notas para citas regularmente programadas o futuras. Si la persona quien viene a recoger al alumno no tiene permiso por escrito, la escuela se pudiera comunicar con los padres de familia para obtener permiso por escrito ya sea por escrito, por correo electrónico o verbalmente en caso de ser necesario. Sin tener el permiso de parte de los padres, no se le entregará al alumno a un pariente/amistad de la familia aun si están incluidos en la tarjeta de emergencia.

Mrs. Allbeck enrolled in the Laura Bush Foundation program to receive money for their school library and was notified that Mt. View was selected as a recipient of a $5000.00 grant. The money is to be used to purchase books and other reading materials to update and diversify their library. Mt View has an excellent library that can now be made a little better thanks to the Laura Bush Foundation.
