Farmington View Information

  • Attendance: A reminder that good school attendance is 95% or better. That's missing less than 8 days for the school year. Here is our current attendance data

>95% = 202 or 67.87%

90%-95% = 76 or 25.6%

<90% = 20 or 6.7% (-2 from last week)

We are currently under our goal of have less than 7.5% of our students being chronically absent during the school year. Thank you to all of our students/families who are only staying home when ill.

  • Garden Clean Up: Come join us March 12 from 10:00-2:00 for a garden clean up party. Our goal is to remove the rock and replace it with bark chips. Food and drinks will be provided with a guaranteed great time.

  • Cafeteria Update: Last week I asked HSD facilities to provide an update/timeline for the noise reduction project. I should hear something this week and will pass it along once I get the information.

  • Parent Pick-Up: At the Booster meeting on Thursday, I'm going to ask your thoughts about using the North parking lot for 10-12 families to pick up their children. Our staff would walk your student down the back stairs of the gym and to your car. Our goal is to alleviate some of the congestion at the front of the school. I look forward to your input on Thursday.
