Hello Centerview Families,
It’s movie night at Centerview Elementary this Friday! Doors open at 6:10 p.m. with the DC League of Super Pets movie time set for 6:30 p.m. The movie will run simultaneously in both the Learning Commons and gymnasium. Check out the PTO Movie Night information below for more details.
On Friday, you also will be receiving communication from your child’s teacher(s) about connecting for February winter conferences. This will be a great opportunity to have personalized conversations about your child’s current progress and learning plan. It will also be a time for you to share insights that help us continue to personalize learning for them. Keep an eye out Friday for communication coming your way!
As we transition into the second half of the school year, we are reiterating school bus expectations to all our students. We want our student arriving to school and home from school safely, enjoying their bus experience. Please take some time with your student to discuss the following CARES expectations (Cooperation, Assertion, Responsibility, Empathy, Self-Control) as it relates to riding the bus.
- Cooperate and be respectful of the driver – allowing the driver to keep his/her attention on driving
- Keep conversation tones to a normal level – Voice Scale 3 – Normal Speaking Voice
- Keep arms and legs out of the aisle to prevent tripping others while they board or exit
- Do not stand or move around while the bus is moving. You are only safe if you are seated.
- Keep feet off seats or the back of seats
- Save snacks and eating for other places
- Be a model for CARES - encourage friends to do the same while riding the bus
This week, across the state of Minnesota our Governor has declared this paraprofessional week.

Thank you…Erika Olson, Kristen Olson, Laura Wasleske, Sarah Ksepka, Laurie Brahs, Jenna Balboa, Sophia Kutina, Leslie Rae, Maryam Abdelhafez, Kenia Alfaro, Allison Jeziorski, Hannah Schultz & Hanadi Gieth for the persistence and the urgent optimism you bring each day in supporting our students and staff here at Centerview. We are fortunate!
Brrr…stay warm this weekend!
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.
