This Is How We Lakeview

October Edition - Volume 5

A message from Mrs. Hanagan

We are seeing more and more students who are reaching out to their teachers via email. We love that they are advocating for themselves and are trying to get help/clarification. Here are a few tips to help them with this process: 1. Detailed subject line - name, class name and reason why you are emailing - (ex: Rachael Hanagan, Eng 7 - homework help), 2. detailed email - what do you need help with (ex: I do not understand the directions for Monday's assignment), and 3. be patient (remember that staff members have 24 hours - 48 hours on the weekend to respond) they will answer as soon as they can.


If your student wanted to be in the new Social Justice Course the first trimester and they were not able to get in, we are offering it in Trimester 2 as well. Please email rachael_hanagan@plsd.us, ryan_max@plsd.us, or sarah_geiger@plsd.us to let us know that your student is interested and we will see if we can fit it into their trimester 2 schedule.


Lakeview is launching a Parent Information Hub to help you easily access beginning of the school year information and also stay up to date on athletics, food services, classroom pages and more. I have linked it here but you can also find it on the Lakeview website under Back to School Information. https://www.pickerington.k12.oh.us/lakeview-junior-high/back-to-school/


Remember to double check with your student that they are checking in for attendance on their virtual days and to check the Classroom Information Page (linked at the bottom of this newsletter) so that you know what they have coming up. There is also still time to schedule Parent/teacher conferences for November 3rd.

Highlights from the Flexible Learning Plan 2.0

Every week from now until November 16th, I am going to highlight a different section of the Flexible Learning Plan. To access the plan from the district website, please follow this link: Flexible Learning 2.0 Plan. They are changing a little of the wording but I am not 100% certain when that change will be made.


This week is teacher and paraprofessionals expectations. This section of the plan is included below but here are some of the highlights:


  • Wear face coverings in the building
  • Wash hands/sanitize throughout the day
  • Provide students with reminders about standard operating procedures
  • Use provided cleaning supplies to clean between class transitions
  • Supervise student traffic to ensure one-way flow
  • Followed staggered bell schedule
  • Reduce the amount of shared materials in a classroom

Social Justice Course offered again Trimester 2

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.


Email Mrs. Hanagan (rachael_hanagan@plsd.us), Ryan Max - 7th grade counselor (ryan_max@plsd.us) or Sarah Geiger - 8th grade counselor (sarah_geiger@plsd.us) if your student is interested in this course.

Introduction for Lakeview Wrestling & Open Mats Dates

Hi,
Just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself and inform you of the Open Mats and season start date. I'm Coach Salinas and I have coached wrestling for 22 years (20 years as a Varsity Asst. and 2 years at JH level).

We will be having Open Mats the next 2 weeks: Nov. 3rd, 5th, 10th & 12th from 2:30 - 4:00.
The Season will start on Nov. 16th and we will practice M - F from 2:30 - 4:30 each day. Your wrestler will be walking out at 4:30, so please make sure someone is able to pick them up at that time or make arrangements with another wrestler's parents and car pool.

As of now, we will be wrestling on Wednesdays Duals only, no tournaments this year due to the Covid. Please take the time to sign up for Remind 101 as this will be my communication with wrestlers & parents this season.

Text message instructions for Remind 101:
Send a text to 81010

Looking forward to the season!

PLSD School Health News

CHANGE to positive COVID-19 procedures

We have 1 change to the procedure that we originally shared with the Lakeview families, see the underlined/bolded portion below.


  1. A letter is sent to the entire building (both cohorts) stating there is a confirmed case
  2. A classroom letter is sent to any person who is in class with the individual
  3. The district office calls and emails anyone who is considered to be in close contact with the individual with specific instructions on next steps. The county health department may also follow up with these individuals


Families who do not receive a personal phone call are deemed to not be at risk based on contact tracing guidelines for the case in question
