Inlet View Newsletter. November, a month of gratitude.

Big picture

Dear Inlet View Parents, guardians, and students.

We have completed our first full quarter of the school year and are midway through the second quarter. Whew! Time sure has flown by.


As you all were informed through an email from superintendent Dr. Bishop, ASD is moving forward with opening elementary schools for students in grades K-2. Self-contained special education and the Whaley School. As I mentioned in previous updates, the Inlet View Safety Committee created the mitigation plan, which has been approved by the elementary division and has been shared with all staff. We are confident we have a thorough and comprehensive plan that, with your help, would be implemented successfully.

That being said, we are inviting you to check out Inlet View's plan that will go live this coming Wednesday, Nov 4th, via the ASD website. Take the time to read it, and then on Thursday, attend an informational zoom meeting at 6:00 pm. See the info below.


On a separate note, winter is slowly approaching, and I anticipate the morning I wake up to see everything with a thick blanket of snow. In preparation for the school reopening, we want you to be aware we plan to be outside whenever possible. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather, especially for students in grades K-2 and 2/3, who will join us on Monday, Nov 16th. If you are having a hard time acquiring winter clothing for your student, please let their teacher or office know. We will do what we can to help your child

IB Learner Profile of this month is INQUIRER


Students who are Inquirers are curious about the world. They can conduct research independently. They love learning and discovering new things and will carry this love of learning with them throughout life. How can parents help to develop students who are Inquirers at home?

· Encourage areas of your child’s interest by visiting the library to borrow books that explore these topics.

· Develop an understanding of the Internet. Work with your son or daughter when the Internet is being used and try to instill the understanding that some Internet sites are not reputable.

· Model being an inquirer. Admit when you don’t know the answer to a problem or a question and seek out answers in front of your child.

Thank you Inlet View Families and PTA
