Principally Speaking

Lassen View Families,

Welcome Back! We are well into the first month of the 2018-19 school year and things are moving right along despite our devastating fire season. We want you to know that student safety is always our priority and we monitor the air quality daily to determine if students need to have indoor recesses, inside PE classes and how to best support our school day.

We thank you for your participation in our annual Back To School Night. This evening is always the best way to inform you of student expectations, grading policies, special field trips and events and how you can support your student in their current grade level. Each year of school is different building upon the prior year’s growth and development. We believe our partnership is crucial to student success. Many teachers utilize a communication system (bloomz, Class Dojo, Class Craft, etc) to keep you apprised of your student’s daily activities. You can also log onto our school website to email your child’s teacher with any questions you have.

Our PTO has kicked off the year with their Family Game Night. Offering a free hot dog meal and a variety of games it is a great way to get to know other Lassen View families and get involved in the Lassen View community. PTO is always looking for volunteers to help with their many family, friendly events. Even if you aren’t able to attend their monthly meetings, don’t hesitate to ask how you can help out at their next event on campus.

This next stretch of school, September through October, is one of the most important time frames for establishing the routines and procedures of school. Attendance has been proven to be the most significant contribution to school success. Help your student succeed by maintaining homework and bedtime routines that support them getting to school on time.

This year we are able to offer a new breakfast and lunch program, the Community Eligibility Provision, where every student can eat for free. Our school qualifies for this program by maintaining a family income survey for every family. Please support this program by ensuring your application is submitted to the office.

We look forward to seeing you on campus,

Mrs. Caryn Emerson
