This is the last Weekly Wednesday Update

Mountain View Work Group: First Meeting Tonight

All Mountain View families should have received an email message yesterday from ACPS about the work group to address the learning needs of all our students next year.

Our first online meeting will be TONIGHT from 6 to 7:30 p.m. I invite you to join us at: http://streaming.k12albemarle.org/ACPS/player.htm?xml/mvesevents.xml

Spanish interpretation will be provided, and recordings in both English and Spanish will be available later this week. I will be in touch with information on how to access these recordings.

An email address has been setup to receive comments, ideas and questions from you. I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to share your views. Our work group will only succeed if it truly is a collaborative and inclusive process that invites and considers comments from everyone. Our email address is: MountainViewWorkGroup@k12albemarle.org

Please join me in expressing gratitude to Robert Garrity, our work group facilitator, and to all the volunteers!

Mountain View is an amazing, passionate community, and we are confident that, together, we will find a solution that is best for all Mountain View Colts and families.

Cyndi Wells, Principal

Wrapping Up This School Year

It is bittersweet to share these final updates for closing out the year:

  • June 10 is the last day our in-person students will have their iPads and laptops. We will collect these devices as we do every summer so the technology department can update all iPads and laptops. Students will receive devices again in August.

  • June 11 is the last day to complete intent forms for next year.

  • June 15 is the last day of school, and it is a half-day for students. Lunch will be provided and busses will depart Mountain View at 11:40am. Virtual students will share specific schedules next week, but all students will have the opportunity to say goodbye that morning as well.

  • June 17 will be a “drive-through” drop off for any outstanding library books and all technology (hotspots, iPads, laptops and chargers) between 10-2 and 4-6.

  • By late June, we will mail home report cards, and we will include SOL scores for students in Grades 3-5.

Reminder: Intent Forms for Next School Year: Please respond by June 11

Please help us plan for next year by completing the intent form for 21-22 that was sent via email last week. If you didn’t receive it, call the front office by Monday and we can help complete it and/or ask the county to resend it.
