Dear Skyview Families,

We are excited for the end of the first quarter and look forward to a much deserved fall break. I encourage families to review students' grades in PowerSchool. Parent/Teacher conferences will be held on the evening of October 7th, and the morning of October 8th. Please look for more information to follow as P/T conferences will be held by appointment only this year to reduce the number of people in the building. Skyview will be sending out information regarding PTSA and looking for families to participate and support our student community. We are also encouraging families to participate in our School Accountability Committee (SAC). This is a great opportunity to provide feedback and support for SMS. As we look to fall break I hope that students and families have time to unwind and reconnect with each other. Second quarter is a busy time of year with many events and activities to look forward to. Please keep in close contact with your students and watch for upcoming events at SMS. We look forward to you being an active member at Skyview and supporting the Eagle community.


Matthew Sisson

School Nurse/ Health room

Dear Parents,

As you know, we are seeing an increased number of illnesses at Skyview Middle School. We also currently have 4 confirmed Covid outbreaks. I want you all to be aware of that because Covid symptoms are consistent with allergies, colds, flu, and stomach viruses. Please don’t assume that your student has “just” a cold. Our number one goal is to keep all students in the building healthy and safe, including yours. We can’t do this if students continue to attend school while ill. I know that it is an inconvenience for our families but, PLEASE, if your child has ANY symptoms of illness, please keep them home. We are also trying diligently to keep our students learning in person. As you all are aware, we have had to try to mitigate illness in our building and the last thing that anyone of us wants is to return to a form of e-learning. D49 updated illness guidelines for SMS are attached for your review.

Immunizations – Exclusion date is just around the corner and we do not want to have to exclude any student from learning due to missing immunizations or update exemption forms per State law. We have a large number of 6th graders who are missing their Tdap which is required by the State upon entry of 6th grade. We are in the process of sending out notifications to families that don’t meet State law. If you have not already done so, please either complete the exemption process or provide proof of immunization. Non-medical exemptions expire every year on July 1st regardless of when it was signed. With the passage of the new Senate bill, parents have to provide a signed form from their physician or a certificate from the immunization module online. You can find more information regarding this from our district nursing page.

Falcon Peak Health Center is a no cost clinic available to all families of D49 students including siblings up to age 21. They are located at Falcon Elementary School and provide immunizations for our families. They can be reached at 719-344-6247 to schedule an appointment.
