Principal Note

Our first day for the 21-22 school year is in the books. We only have 179 more days to go!

The pick-up lines will be longer for Monday and Tuesday because half the kindergarten will be joining the school day. Make sure you pull up as far as you can to the car in front of you to tighten up the line. We want every child to get home safely. It may take awhile before our routines are established. Please be patient with us during this time.

Everyone should use the car drop-off line when they bring their child in the morning. See below for details.

Kindergarten will have a designated spot for drop off in the morning near the kindergarten doors. See below for details.

A special shout out to our special guests for welcoming our students to school. SHS Cheer and Football team members, Cheatham County Mayor Kerry R. McCarver, Pleasant View Mayor Bill Anderson, PVPD Tad Wheeler, PVFD Brian Biggs and Aaron Giles, and PVUMC Brother Paul Edwards. #bettertogether

Kindergarten will start August 13th, full day.

Car Rider Number

You must have a car rider number to pick-up your child in the car rider line. Please stop in the front office in the morning to pick one up before entering the car rider line.

Bus cards

We handed out bus cards Friday. Make sure they wear their cards back to school Monday to ride the bus. It is acceptable to wrap the cord onto the backpack they wear to school each day. We will continue to hand out cards Monday to those who did not get one Friday.

Guidance Counselor

Hello Pleasant View Panthers!

I hope you all had a wonderful summer! I feel very excited and blessed to be able to work with the students and faculty at PVES this year! I have a lot of goals, and I will make every effort to complete them. I am looking forward to helping our students discover their own strengths and abilities. I have introduced myself to all the classrooms, but I look forward to meeting families and working with your children this year! I have a Bitmoji classroom that is under construction, and I will also be sending out a parent needs assessment so that you can communicate any concerns you may have. I will strive to enhance student learning at every opportunity and create the best possible learning environment for our students. Thank you so much for your encouragement and support

At the check-in table, you will need to verify how your child will be going home that day. Please bring your child’s supplies in a trash bag labeled with their first and last name. Also, you will need to bring in a labeled lunchbox if they are not eating a school lunch. We are excited to see everyone next week!

Kindergarten OPEN HOUSE

August 12th

Kindergarten 5:30-6:30 pm

We will meet in the gym before heading to the classroom.

Please try to make arrangements for childcare.

Classroom supplies can be dropped off during open house.

Arrive early enough for parking. The doors will be open at the GYM entrance.

Morning Drop off Line

Drop off time in the morning is from 7:00-7:45. We will close the doors in the morning at 7:45. You will need to bring your child up to the front entrance to get in the building after 7:45.

Students not in class by 7:45 will be marked tardy.

I strongly suggest getting your child to school between 7:00 - 7:25. They will not be rushed and will have time to enjoy their breakfast.


Students will be released at 2:45 on a normal school day. Parents that have a blue car rider pass will line up in the front of the building by the gym, note the arrows on the map. Parents with a yellow car rider pass will line up in the back of the building, note the arrows for which side to enter. We ask that every child be picked up by 3:00 pm.

How Do I Get A Car Rider Pass

We will setup a station at our open house if you do not have or lost your car rider pass. You may come by the building during normal work hours before 2 pm to request one. You will not be able to pick-up your child in the car rider line without one.

Return Car Rider Passes

If you are returning to us, you may continue to use the card you have.

Setting A La Carte/Snack Purchase Limits

If you do not want your student using funds in his/her meal account to charge snacks, or if you want to put a daily limit on the amount of money that can be spent on snack/a la carte purchases, you can do so by clicking on the link on the right middle side of the screen that reads Set Ala Carte Limit. The Daily Ala Carte Limit window will open, and you can choose between a dollar amount limit per day, or choose Do Not Allow Purchase. Then click Save.
