Parent Concerns/Questions

Parents having concerns about their child’s progress in school should first contact the child’s teacher and make arrangements for a discussion. This usually alleviates the concern. Should the issue continue, do not hesitate to contact the principal, who will arrange for a parent/teacher/principal conference.

Family participation is encouraged in the selection of educational settings for your child. The staff and principal make final determination for student placement. (Please note: No placements are considered final until after the 20th day.) If you believe that a change in placement is needed, the following steps must be followed:

  1. Arrange a conference with the teacher to discuss specific concerns.
  2. Address specific concerns and solution in writing.
  3. Solutions and modifications to concerns must be documented for a minimum of three (3) weeks.
  4. A conference with the teacher after the three (3) weeks to determine success of solutions or changes necessary.
  5. If, after this process has been followed and original concerns is/are not resolved, a conference with the teacher and principal will be arranged to discuss placement options.

The principal, counselor, secretary, and clerk are always ready to help with questions of a more general nature as well. Please communicate with us.

Parent Involvement

Parent/community involvement is encouraged at Mountain View. You are always welcome in classrooms after first checking in at the main office. An advanced phone call or a note to the teacher is an added courtesy when possible. Conferences with teachers should be arranged in advance to avoid schedule conflicts. Everyone is urged to join and actively participate in our Community Action Team (CAT). We welcome volunteers in the classroom, in the health room, and in all CAT activities. Parents are required to have background checks if working with students unsupervised or attending field trips.

Personal Electronic Devices (PED)

PEDs include, but are not limited to, cell phones, pagers, music and media players, gaming devices, tablets, and laptop computers. PEDs may be used before or after the school day ONLY and must be turned off and kept out of sight during school hours. The school will not be responsible for damage or theft of the item.

If a student violates this policy the PED will be confiscated by school staff and taken to the office. Only the parent/guardian may pick up the PED at the end of the school day. For the second offense the PED will remain in the office for 7 days before it may be picked up by the parent/guardian. If there is a third offense the PED will remain in the office until the end of the trimester before it may be picked up by the parent/guardian.

Physical Education

Mountain View is served by two full time physical education teachers. All students are expected to participate in the activities instructed. If a child is ill, the child should remain home. Please send a note if your child is unable to participate due to a physical injury. A doctor’s note may be required.

Your cooperation is necessary to ensure the safety of our children. We all need to remember that we are examples for our children.

Please follow these guidelines carefully.
