Farmington View Information

  • Attendance: A reminder that good school attendance is 95% or better. That's missing less than 8 days for the school year. Here is our current attendance data.

>95% =188 or 64.2%

90%-95% = 89 or 30.3%

<90% = 16 or 5.5% (-1 from last week)

  • We are currently under our goal of have less than 7.5% of our students being chronically absent this year. Thank you to all of our students/families who are only staying home when ill. The elementary attendance competition was just updated and we are in 4th place out of 25 schools. However, Farmington View currently has the lowest rate of chronically absent students in the district!

  • State Testing: 95% of our students have completed their testing. We just have a few students to finish in Math due to absences and eight fifth graders who will retest in Science. All testing will be completed on Thursday.

  • New Parent Pick-Up: We will not start the new parent pick-up until the new gate under the cover area has been installed. I'll give you at least two days notice.

  • Dress Code: This is a friendly reminder that students need to wear shoes that are suitable for PE and recess. Flip flops are not appropriate for school. Thank you for your support.

  • Field Day Volunteers Needed: The fun never ends. Field Day is Monday, June 13th this year. If you are interested in volunteering, please click on the link below. Thank you to Sara Johnson for coordinating the volunteers.
