This is How We Lakeview

September Edition - Volume 4

A message from Mrs. Hanagan

This week we finished up our iReady Diagnostic testing. Look for more information on your student's results to be coming soon. There is also an article below on how to support iReady at home.


I want to take some time to congratulate all our fall athletes. Everyone had an incredible week from the Girls' Cross Country team earning their 6th 1st place finish of the season to both 7th and 8th grade football teams with big wins over Ridgeview Junior High. Our athletes have put in a lot of hard work this season and it is paying off so congratulations to them.


We are still getting calls about student attendance, please make sure that your student is checking in on their virtual days. They can check in to all their classes at once, any time during the school day.

How can you help with iReady?

Families: You play a critical role in your student’s success with i-Ready this fall. Visit the Family Center for more information on i-Ready and how you can motivate your student at home:

i-ReadyCentral.com/FamilyCenter. Your student is supposed to be completing iReady lessons every week so this is something that you can ask them about. We just finished the diagnostic testing this week so moving forward, please talk with your student about their iReady progress.

Students who are assigned Wednesday school as a discipline resolution by their administrator, will be set-up with transportation, and given notification of the consequence the Friday before their scheduled Wednesday school. The program will run from 8am to 11am and begin on September 30th, if needed. Please reach out to your building administrator with any questions!

Make sure your student is checking in for attendance on virtual days

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 (ryan_max@plsd.us) - 7th grade and Sarah Geiger (sarah_geiger@plsd.us) - 8th grade.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

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.
