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

March 22, 2018

Hello Lakeview Families!

Spring is in the air and if you can believe it, there are only 10 weeks left in the school year. We are savoring every minute left with our students and making the most of our time left together.

Please read below for important information and dates for the upcoming weeks.

Lakeview "Town Hall" Safety Meeting 3/27

I am going to host a school safety meeting at Lakeview Elementary on March 27 at 5:30 p.m. Please consider this an invitation to join me that evening. If you have a specific question about school safety, simply email me at I will do my best to add it to our agenda for that evening. Above all, please know that we will continue to make safety our number one priority at Lakeview Elementary.”

Spring Time Can = Lice

We have a few scattered cases of lice popping up on campus. Below are some tips on how to prevent the spread of lice.

  • Blow drying hair on high heat is also beneficial. Lice cannot tolerate high heat.
  • Sharing isn’t always caring. Lice is spread by head-to-head contact with someone who has lice and that’s easily done with school kids who love to share. Teach your children to keep their hats and hair accessories to themselves, especially when a case of lice has been confirmed.
  • Tie hair up in ponytails or braids. If you know lice are active at the school, tie your kid’s hair up in a ponytail or braid for school. If you want to add some extra protection from lice, place some strands of dried rosemary into your child’s ponytail

If you have any questions, please contact your student's teacher or Mrs. Weaver.

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

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.
