Skyview Arrival and Dismissal - Student Safety Reminder

Please note that all Skyview Upper Elementary School students are assigned a Methacton School District bus to and from school daily. This year, there has been an increase in students turning in notes requesting to walk home. We strongly advise that students utilize district transportation as there are no crossing guards on or near our campus. Any student requesting to walk home will be directed to the main office.

As you are aware, the drop-off/pick-up area at Skyview is located in the back loop by the gymnasium entrance. The Skyview team works diligently daily to keep this area running effectively. We respectfully request that families not attempt to use any neighborhood areas as alternate pick-up locations. We thank all of our families for their cooperation with our drop-off and pick-up procedures.

We greatly appreciate everyone’s assistance in promoting the safety of our Skyview students while they travel to and from school.

Skyiew Music Department Fundraiser

Skyview Upper Elementary Music Department has partnered with Community Recycling and their ShoeBox Recycling program. Together we are on a mission to help promote the importance of shoe recycling while raising funds to support students who wish to participate on the 6th grade music ensemble trip.

Start cleaning out your closets and looking under your bed for gently used shoes. Every pair you recycle means extra funds for us and less landfill waste. All the shoes we recycle as a group are destined for another home. From South America and Africa to areas right here in the United States.

The Shoe Recycling bins will be in the lobby all school year long. Back to School Night is a great night for parents to kick off our fundraiser.

Acceptable Shoes to donate: gently used pairs, mens/womens/kids soccer cleats, casual shoes, dress shoes, work boots, sneakers, sandals, heels, flats and loafers.

Please do not donate: damaged/holes/wet/mildewed shoes, single shoes, metal spiks, flip flops/plastic shoes, slippers, dress boots, ski/winter boots, skates/blades.
