Hello Centerview Families,
What a GREAT turnout this past Friday evening for our Centerview Movie Night! This Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) event was met with much enthusiasm as the gymnasium and our commons café floors were full of “togetherness!” There were many smiles, kind gestures of support and certainly an entertaining movie for all.
Conference communications were sent out on Friday, January 27 to families from homeroom teachers and service providers. Take a look at your calendars and find time that works for you to connect, partner and stay current with your student(s) progress. If you have questions, please reach out to your teacher(s) or the Centerview office.
The month of February kicks off I Love to Read month. Students will be participating in many fun activities throughout the month as a school, within their grade level and their classroom. Classrooms will be buddying up with other classrooms and reading (ex: 1st & 4th). We’ll have all school read alouds through WebEx, dressing up as our favorite storybook character and playing book bingo. It’ll be FUN! Keep an eye out for communication from your student’s teacher and our monthly school calendar.
Another calendar reminder for fourth grade families - the in-person event at Westwood is tomorrow, Thursday for 4th graders and their families. It’ll be a nice precursor to the 2023-2024 school year.
Stay warm the next couple days!

- From the health office:
Parents and guardians, you are our best partners in keeping our school healthy and safe by keeping your student home when they are ill. Recently, we have had an uptick of students coming to school ill and would like to remind families of the guidelines for when a student must stay home due to illness.
- If a student has had a fever of 100 degrees or more, the student must stay home for 24 hours after the temperature returns to normal.
- If a student has vomited or had diarrhea, the student must stay home until 24 hours after the last episode.
- If a student has had any rash that may be disease-related or the cause is unknown, check with a family physician before sending the student to school.
- If a student is exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, they should stay home and get tested.
- If a student has a chronic health disease that causes symptoms of fever, vomiting, diarrhea and/or rash, please check with the school health care specialist to discuss parameters for keeping your student home.
