Lakeview Elementary - We Know Every Child by Name & by Need

February 2, 2018

Hello Lakeview Families!

Welcome to February! We had a great week with many celebrations including our students who competed in UIL, our campus Spelling Bee champion represented Lakeview proudly, and we participated in World Read Aloud Day. Unfortunately the flu bug continues to affect our campus. Our teachers are ensuring students wash their hands frequently and our custodial crew is diligently cleaning after hours. Hopefully, flu season will be behind us soon! We always want our students at school, but please continue not to send them back until they have been fever free, with out medication, for 24 hours.

Have a great weekend!

Think Kind!

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.

Birthday Treats

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.
