Hello Lakeview Families!

We have had an exciting week that ended with an amazing performance from our friends at Medlin Middle School! Thank you to all of our students and families who contributed to our can food drive! Your generosity is greatly appreciated.


Next week is full of opportunities for students. On Monday our Book Fair and Holiday Shop will open for students. On Tuesday night, we will have a short PTA meeting followed by a Chorus performance. The Book Fair and Holiday Shop will also be open and available on Tuesday evening.


Have a great weekend!

NISD Parent Survey

Tell Us How We're Doing

Northwest ISD is seeking feedback from parents and caregivers to identify strengths and areas needing improvement by offering a parent survey. The survey is available in English and Spanish November 26 to December 14 and will focus on:

  • Campus climate
  • Safety
  • Communications
  • Instructional program
  • Support services

If you have children enrolled in more than one school, you will be able to take the survey for each child.

To complete the survey, click here. If you prefer a paper copy or a Spanish version, please call 817-215-0171. Thank you in advance for your participation in helping the district work toward achieving its mission to prepare students to confidently navigate their futures.

Compulsory Attendance

We understand students miss school for various reasons. However, please understand that if your child has missed more than 8 school days (excused or unexcused) you will receive a letter from Lakeview regarding attendance. As the state requires students to be in attendance 90% of the year, Lakeview will continue to follow state guidelines regarding this issue. If you have any questions we are happy to talk you through the process.


Absence notes are due no more than 3 days after the date of the absent. After 3 days, the absence will be marked as unexcused.

Traffic Patterns for Arrival and Dismissal

Our traffic patterns have not changed - they are the same for arrival and dismissal as they have been in previous years. Please refer to the pictures below for directions.

Parents please be sure to send an email to LakeviewElem@nisdtx.org and your child's teacher by 1:00pm to communicate ride changes. We will not release students to ride changes without confirmation from parents regarding ride changes.

Birthday Treats

Big picture
We love celebrating birthdays with our students! When planning on bringing in birthday treats, only pre-packaged store bought products are allowed. To ensure there is time to distribute birthday treats to classrooms, please have them in the office no later than 2:00. We are unable to hold ice cream or popsicles so please do not send treats that will melt. Also, if a treat does not have a label of ingredients it will not be shared with the class. Due to allergies we must know the ingredients for ALL treats. Due to sensitivity no balloons are allowed in the building.

Facebook and Social Media

Social media is a great way to keep up with and in contact with friends and family. When you are posting regarding Lakeview, please keep a few things in mind:

1. Think before you post, your words have power.

2.Do not post pictures or information of children who are not yours. Privacy is important so do not post pictures or information about other students without parent permission.

3. If you have a question regarding events or information regarding Lakeview, your best bet is to always email your child's teacher or call the front office.

4. If you are unhappy with a situation or would like to share a concern, please always email your child's teacher or contact our front office.

5. Finally, stay positive. No one benefits when community members disagree on line.
