DATES TO REMEMBER
A WORD FROM MR. SISSON
Dear Skyview Families,
April is an exciting and busy time of year for middle school students. As we start to look toward the end of the school year we begin to prepare for the 22-23 SY. Over the next several weeks students will start to meet with counselors to discuss courses for next school year. We have made some changes to our bell schedule for the 22-23 school year to allow for more flexibility and access to classes for students. Skyview will move to a single bell schedule which will allow for the use of bells, we will continue to have 3 grade level lunches for students. Please look for more information to be shared in the coming weeks. I encourage families to enjoy the changing of the seasons and be prepared for those unexpected weather changes as well. Happy Spring Eagles!

Required Student IDs
Dear Skyview Families,
In an effort to improve and support security at Skyview Middle School we will be requiring all students to wear their student photo ID's. SMS provided a breakaway lanyards for all students, if your student chooses to provide their own lanyard please ensure that it is a breakaway and appropriate for school. Students that need a replacement ID will need to stop by the front off to get an updated ID from Mrs. Aragon.
Replacement IDs will be a $5 charge.
School Nurse/ Health Room
I would like to update you on an issue that has been occurring at Skyview. Students are texting their parents and telling them that they are sick and need to go home. Parents then come to pick up their child and the Health Room never knows that they left school sick. If your child texts you that they are not feeling well, PLEASE direct them to the health room PRIOR to coming to pick them up. There are a number of reasons why this is important.
First, we can evaluate your child and perhaps we can treat them so that they can stay in school or if we need to monitor symptoms of covid. Second, if we evaluate them, we know what brought them in to the health room. We check attendance logs and illness logs so we can see if there is an illness in a particular area. This is important because we can deep clean those rooms and we can try prevent an outbreak. Lastly, it is against our technology policy for children to text during the school day. We will never deny your child from contacting you and we will do this on behalf of your child.
We also monitor children that continue to come to the health room to see if there is an illness pattern. This also may assist the doctor when treating your child. Our goal is always to keep your child healthy and safe and we cannot do this without your cooperation. It is really important to let us know when your child is ill. With monitoring the Coronavirus per County and State guidelines, we have to have a plan and be able to keep students healthy and safe.
As always, we appreciate your collaboration in helping keep our students and staff healthy.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to Jennifer Debelak Health Para or Patsy Prettyman, RN, BSN, School Nurse at 719-495-5562.
Sports and SMS events calendar
We are pleased to announce School District 49 will provide a school meal at no cost for all students through the end of the '21-'22 school year.
SKYVIEW SAC COMMITTEE
As the most recent survey came out on school and family engagement, it got me thinking…Skyview SAC (School Accountability Committee) is one way that you can engage and influence your middle school. It is a great way to be involved and know what is happening at Skyview without embarrassing our kids. The SMS SAC committee meets once a month (except for October & March) to discuss, inquire and advise the building leadership. We discuss how the tax dollars that are allocated to us are spent, what direction the school should go with regards to the UIP (Unified Improvement Plan) and we share difficulties and ideas to solve them. Please put our final 2 meetings on your calendar: Thursday April 14th and May 12th. We do our best to keep meetings to 1 hour and they start at 5:30 pm in the library at Skyview. The agenda for the meeting should be available on the Skyview Website one week prior to the meeting (Skyview Middle School SAC Page)
Welcome to the Skyview Middle School Counseling Center. We are here to provide you with some resources to help make middle school a little easier.
This site will be helpful for students, parents, and teachers to get some ideas, strategies and information about various topics to affect our Skyview Eagles.
For D49 transportation inquiries please contact transportation directly.
