Important Information From Mrs. Lowe

March 1, 2019

Dear Parents:

The focus of our guidance lesson this month is on child/sexual abuse. Providing preventive programming in this area is mandated by the State of Texas for all schools to help in protecting our children. Specifically, the topic of sexual abuse is of a sensitive nature and will be discussed with elementary students in terms of personal body safety. Northwest ISD partners with Alliance for Children to bring the “P.S. It’s My Body!” program to our students. Program facilitators and counselors will use age-appropriate terminology such as “private parts” or “body parts covered by a swimsuit.” We also would like to encourage you to talk to your children about the prevention of child and sexual abuse.

To join us in this conversation, please find further information via the following link:

https://www.nisdtx.org/departments/guidance_and_counseling_programs/real_talks

Select the Real Talk: Child/Sexual Abuse. From there, you will find links to the following resources:

· Statistics

· Prevention techniques

· Warning signs

· Myths about child sexual abuse

· How to respond to an outcry of abuse

· Child/sexual abuse resources

The “P.S. It’s My Body” program will be presented on our campus on April 4 & 5. If you have questions regarding the program, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for allowing us to partner with you in the awareness and prevention of child and sexual abuse.

Sincerely,

Penny Lowe, Lakeview ES Counselor

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.

Traffic Patterns for Arrival and Dismissal

Our traffic patterns have not changed - they are the same for arrival and dismissal as they have been in previous years. Please refer to the pictures below for directions.

Birthday Treats

Big picture
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.
