School Starts Wednesday!

Every student in 5K-5th grade should be in the building by 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, September 1st. We are so excited to have our students back after what was hopefully a nice summer break for everyone. Enjoy the next few days, have the kids get some good sleep, and we will see you Wednesday morning.

4K visit day is on September 1st (see separate info) and the first full day of 4K is September 2nd.

Mask Reminder

All students at Lakeview wear masks right now. Please send several masks and put your child's name in all of them. Please check the size/fit and practice putting it on and off at home - that really helps.

School Pictures on Sept 8

Pictures for yearbooks will be taken on Wednesday, September 8th. Here is the link to pre-order pictures. This link will also be on the Lakeview website. If you have any questions about pictures, please contact the photographers using the contact information in the link above. They are very easy to work with. A pdf version of their flyer is linked below.

School Supply List for 2021-22

Here is a link to the school supply list. It is posted on the Lakeview website in case you need to find it while you are at the store. Please note that we sent home all headphones in June and students will need headphones again this school year. Lakeview is no longer selling or storing headphones for students. If you need help with supplies, we have extras here!

Looking for a part-time job?

We have two openings for Special Education paraprofessional positions open at Lakeview. They are both 5.5 hours/day (plus a 30-minute lunch). They do not include benefits. If you or someone you know would like to be part of an amazing team of educators, please apply on WECAN as soon as possible by clicking this link.

Calendar for 2021-22 School Year

Please take the time now to go over the school year calendar and mark dates in your home calendar. Here is the link to the calendar and you can always find it on the district website. We depend on you to know these dates and times, including 2:05 early dismissal dates in 2021-22, which happens one Wednesday each month (except in December). Here is the link to the 4K calendar, which is also found on the district website.


The school hours will remain the same as last year:

5K through 5th grade is 8:30-3:35.

All-day 4K is also 8:30-3:35, but only Monday through Thursday.

All students must be in the building by 8:30 or they are tardy.

When can students enter the building? Where do they enter?

Doors will open at 8:25 this year and students may enter the following doors between 8:25-8:30 each school morning. All students must be in the building before 8:30.

4K - Door 6

5K (Ms. Hetzer) - Door 9

5K (Ms. DeBruin) - Door 10

1st Grade - Door 11

2nd and 3rd Grades - Door 5

4th and 5th Grades - Door 7


These are the same doors that students are dismissed from at 3:35 p.m. I suggest you walk over to Lakeview in the coming weeks to find the correct door before the first day of school.

Although we appreciate if students can go to the correct door at 8:25, students may enter through the front doors (Door 1) if that is closest to your home. No matter where students enter, they will still be dismissed through the doors listed above, unless they are on a daycare bus or going to Before/After care provided by the SM Rec Department.

More important info ...

• Do you need to register for Before/After Care through the SM Recreation Department? If so, here is the link for registration - it is found on our district website.

• "Golden Lions" will continue at Lakeview this year - this is how we recognize students who demonstrate our "Be Safe ~ Be Respectful ~ Be Engaged" expectations. One parent/guardian will receive an automated email with a certificate and your child will be recognized in front of his/her class.

Lunch menus are available on the Lakeview website under the "For Families" tab. Check for menus once we are closer to the start of the school year. If you qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch prices (or if you wonder if you qualify), please be sure to see this page for information and complete it right away.
