From the Principal

Dear Parkview Families, 

We continue to be thankful to be back in-person for learning at Parkview. Your continued support in keeping our school community healthy is appreciated. Thank you for collective work to report symptoms and keep students home when they are ill. 

Just a reminder that it is really important for students to have their iPad at school, every day.  Students also need earbuds or earphones for many activities with their iPad at school. Please ask your child to if they have earbuds or earphones at school and help ensure they keep them at school for learning in the classroom. 

The weather is changing and students enjoy the fresh air time outside during recess. Students continue to need clothes for cold weather during recess. Thank you for helping to set up your child for success every day! 

Nicole Garcia, Principal

Roller Skating in Physical Education: Final Week

Running through Friday, March 12th, Parkview students in grades one through five have been roller skating in their physical education class. Students should not bring rollerblades as Skateville will again be providing roller skates for the students. For your child’s added protection, we strongly encourage that they bring knee and elbow pads, wrist guards and a helmet. Please review your child's shoe size with them, as this will help them get into their skates and skating sooner.

196Online Registration: Due Today

Today is the final day for priority enrollment into our new 196Online virtual school. All applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. tonight, March 4, after which students will be placed on a waiting list. 

196Online is available to families in grades K-12 who would like their children to learn online in the 2021-22 school year. 196Online takes the best from the current digital academy program and adds enhancements based on suggestions from students and teachers.

196Online is an optional school that is held completely online. Families who would like their children to learn in-person this fall should not sign up for 196Online.
