Sign Up for February Conferences
Wednesday, February 24 from 3:30-7:30
Thursday, February 25 from 4:00-8:00
Conferences will be virtual on your teacher's Zoom and each conference slot will be 15 minutes long. If you arrive early, you will be in the teacher's Zoom waiting room until the time of the conference. SMVA students should see the information from your teachers for conferences, which may be on different dates. Lakeview 4K with Ms. Maes may also be at a different time.
Please be sure to choose your child's teacher from the Sign-up Genius list. Scroll across the tabs at the top. The first tab that opens is for Mrs. Zoellner's 5K class. Scroll across the tabs to find the other classroom teachers.
Click here for the link to the Sign-up Genius for conferences. We are going to try and schedule a conference for every single student because we value the chance to talk with you!
School is now 8:30-3:35
Starting Monday, school ends at 3:35 p.m. Please be sure your child knows who is picking him/her up each day. We do not provide after-school supervision and all students need to leave the playground immediately after school.
4K and 5K families may come all the way to their doors for drop-off and pickup IF wearing a mask. All other families are asked to remain at the edge of the blacktop areas and spread out while waiting, but also need a mask when on property.
Please note: The AM 4K school day is still from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and SMVA schedules remain unchanged.
We will go outside for recess anytime the "feels like" temperature is 0 degrees or above. This matches the guidance from the National Weather Service windchill chart. In addition, none of our recesses are over 15 minutes in length this year. We have tried to create three, short recesses this year for each grade level to provide fresh air and movement.
Valentine's Day & Birthdays
• Do not send edible birthday treats this year (no cupcakes, cookies, etc). They will not be passed out. I encourage you to instead consider purchasing a book or game for your child's classroom.
• If you choose to send anything for Valentine's Day, we will not consume any food in the classroom. For example, if you send prepackaged candy hearts, we will hand them out and they will be taken home. Do not send anything homemade and do not send anything store-bought that does not come individually pre-packaged.
• If you choose to send any cards or pre-packaged candy for Valentine's, please have your child bring it to school by Wednesday, February 10. Our teachers will quarantine all items for a day and hand them out at the end of school on Thursday, February 11 (since we do not have school on the 12th and Valentine's Day is a Sunday this year).
Save the Date - March 4
Snow Day Decisions
If there is a short time span, for example an overnight snowstorm, we will take it as a regular snow day. In cases where there is a few days of notice prior to the storm or cold snap and there is time to prepare for it, we will shift to virtual learning for that time period. The biggest determinant will be our ability to prepare for the event.
