This is How We Lakeview

September Edition - Volume 3

Getting in a routine

Hopefully, everyone is getting back into a school routine. I know that it is has been an adjustment (mom of 2 school-age boys over here) but things are finally starting to settle down. Please remember to check Infinite Campus for missing work and the Classroom Communication Page (linked at the bottom of this newsletter) for what your student should be working on. If you are having difficulties, please reach out to your student's teachers, myself or the school counselors for assistance.

Enjoy the cooler temperatures this weekend, autumn is definitely on the way!

What is PAW time?

Good Afternoon PAW Panther Families. I wanted to reach out to you today to introduce some of the materials that we will be sharing with your students through their PAW Time. Students and staff focus on building relationships, providing social/emotional support, strategies for success, and team building in PAW Time. It is a smaller group that meets first thing in the morning to help students start their day with a positive experience.

One of the social emotional learning objectives this year is the introduction of the “R-Factor” as a decision making tool to improve outcomes by helping students understand what they control and how to make the best choice for them in any situation. The R-Factor stresses using a disciplined response in order to manage your response to an event that happens within your 20 square feet. Several successful businesses, sports teams and schools all utilize the R-Factor and you may recognize the equation “E+R=O” as one of the core principles of the program. PLSD staff was trained on the R-Factor last year and I look forward to introducing it to our students this year.

We will be introducing the R-Factor in PAW Time on the week of 9/21 during the in-person days.

R-Factor: Event + Response = Outcome

Here are some helpful links so that you can have conversations with your student(s):

E+R=O mindset

We will be sharing some other PAW Time resources and materials with you periodically through the year to help support your students.

Attendance on virtual days is the student's responsibility

Student participation on virtual days is a mandatory expectation for all students. Classroom work is posted on Google Classroom by your student’s teachers. Student participation in classroom work is tied to student attendance.

We believe the majority of log in issues with Infinite Campus have now been resolved. Students must log into Infinite Campus for their attendance and Google Classroom daily. They can login to Infinite Campus once and do their attendance for the entire day so they do not need to login multiple times. If your student is unsure of how to post their attendance on virtual days, please see the directions below. If they cannot login to Infinite Campus, please reach out to their school counselor, Ryan Max ( - 7th grade and Sarah Geiger ( - 8th grade.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

Chromebook restart message

If students see a message telling them they will be logged out soon, this is because they have not turned off or logged out of their computer for some time. This can cause issues with memory and other issues so logging out and right back in will solve any issues. If they ignore the message they will be logged out by the computer. They are allowed to sign right back in. Worst case scenario it might kick them while they are working on something but advise them to log out and right back in if they see that message.

Picture Retakes

If you missed picture day this past week, no worries! We will have picture retakes on October 27th for Cohort A and October 29th for Cohort B.

Picking up a student for early dismissal/dropping off student items

If you need to pick up a student for early dismissal, it is faster if you call ahead so we can have your student ready to go in the office. You will have to show your ID for us to release the student.

If you need to drop off an item, please label it with the student name and place it in the dropbox out front. Please press the call button and let the office know it is there.
