Weekly Wednesday Update

Wednesday, August 11, 2021

Teacher Assignments will be available on August 16

Teacher Assignments and bus stop information will be available in the Parent Portal by 5:00pm on August 16. Contact the Front Office at 434-293-7455 if you need your login information. Parent Portal login information will also be available for Kindergarten families at the PTO Playground play date on August 16.

Registration Documents for New and Transfer Students

All required registration documents need to be submitted before your child can start school. One of our office associates will be in touch with you if you are missing any documents.

Afterschool/ Dismissal Plan - Families Please Respond by August 13

It is important for us to know your child’s dismissal plan. Please fill out this short questionnaire. We need your responses by August 13. Be aware that if you are changing your transportation choice to bus, we will update it in the system but it can take up to 10 days to have a bus assigned.

Family/Student Handbook

We have developed this comprehensive handbook for our families. We realize it is a lot of information, but we hope that all families, especially those new to Mountain View, find it helpful!

Please note that due to COVID and the nature of our parking lot, families can walk their child to their classroom on August 19 only. Once school begins, we will care for and guide your child from the moment they exit your car (or get on the school bus).

Open House Express - August 19 (video explanation)


To hear why we have designed our Open House Express in this way, click here for a brief video in English & Spanish: https://youtu.be/wtqSTqVCd-U

Crosswalk Update

Construction associated with the expanded parking, the sidewalk modifications and crosswalk is taking a bit longer than initially expected, but it should be completed by August 20 -- just in time for school!

The work closest to the school, parking and sidewalks, is mostly completed! A (buried) natural gas line has slowed the crosswalk across Avon Street Ext., but it should be done by the time students start! That will be a safer way for walking families to cross Avon Street Ext.


Reminder: School Supply List

Reminder: Virtual School Tour

In case you missed it, here is a virtual tour that will allow children and families who are new to Mountain View to see the inside of our school before Open House on August 19.

A Message for Families from PTO

School is quickly approaching and all teachers head back next MONDAY, AUGUST 16 to get ready for students! We need your help.


Please join us at 7:45 AM in the MOUNTAIN VIEW PARKING LOT on August 16 with signs, noise makers, etc. to welcome teachers back in style! We would love to see as many Colts and their families as possible. Please help spread the word!


The PTO traditionally provides breakfast for teachers on their first day back and we need your help to make that happen. Due to limited fundraising opportunities in the past two years, we need parent support more than ever to show teachers our appreciation. Please consider signing up to bring food or drinks on the Sign Up Genius below.


Thank you in advance for your support! Go Colts!
