This is How We Lakeview

August Edition - Volume 2

Welcome Back!

Yesterday, we welcomed back our staff to the building. The teachers dived right into planning and getting ready for the hybrid teaching model. While things may look a little different, our staff's commitment to providing the students with the best education possible has remained the same. If you did not hear, the Board of Education voted yesterday to push the start of school back to August 31st. With that being said, please start having your student check their school email the week of August 24th for important information from their teachers on what they can expect for the upcoming school year.


We are currently working on getting Back to School information and student schedules ready to mail. We are hoping to have these out in the mail on Thursday so start checking your mailbox so you don't miss anything. Next week our video will include an overview of the student schedule. And just a friendly reminder that the Lakeview Back to School Page has a ton of information for the upcoming school year so start there if you have questions.

Important Info About Device Pickup and Login, Tech Repair Days & More

Device Pickup

If your student(s) attended PLSD during the 19-20 school year, they already have a device and will continue to use their same device during the 20-21 school year.

If the device is still in good working condition, then there is nothing that you need to do and students will need to continue to bring the device to school, charged, everyday.

If your current device is damaged to the point of not working, we will be holding several repair days in August before school starts.

In order to receive service, please sign up at the below link so we can prepare for the correct number of visits.

Technology Support

Repair Days in the District Office (90 N. East St.)

  • Wednesday, August 12th – 1:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

  • Monday, August 24th – 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. & 1:00 – 3:30 p.m.

Hybrid model highlights

Below are the parent/guardian expectations for the hybrid model. I just wanted to point out a few things as we get ready to start the year in the hybrid model.


1. Visitors are not allowed in the building, if you need to pick up your student during the school day, please be prepared to show your ID at the door and we will release your student to you.

2. Please provide your student with a non-glass water bottle.

3. Do a wellness check at home, do not send your student to school if they have a temperature over 100.

4. Please provide your student with a spare face mask in case they need to switch it out during the day.

School Supply Lists

As a part to reopen school buildings, we are recommending that students carry a minimal amount of supplies. Keep in mind that your student will attend 6 different classes during the day and that these supplies are for personal use only as we are trying to limit shared supplies. They also need to be able to fit everything into their backpacks as students will not have use of lockers during the hybrid model.



Suggested materials:

Notebook/Folder for each class

1 Composition Notebook

2 colors of Highlighter

Pencils

Colored Pencils

Wired Headphones/Earbuds (NO Bluetooth)

Pen (2 colors)

1 Package of tissues

Pencil Pouch

Non-glass water bottle

A mask for daily wear (we recommend a second mask be kept in a plastic bag in their backpack)

New Social Justice Development Course Available for students

We still have spots available in the Social Justice Development course. Please email your student's school counselor, ryan_max@plsd.us (7th grade), sarah_geiger@plsd.us (8th grade) or Mrs. Hanagan (rachael_hanagan@plsd.us) if your student is interested in the course. See below for a course description:


Social Justice Development

Grades 7, 8 • Trimester

Students will explore power and privilege in diverse populations, contemporary and historical examples of oppression specifically related to African American history, as well as personal prejudices and biases. This course will support students in gaining an understanding of African American studies from the sociopolitical perspective. Students will develop skills to be advocates and allies for social justice. This course will be taught in formats that include project-based learning, open discussion, and mentorship linking. This is designed specifically for the junior high level as students will be developing self-awareness for social change.
