Letter from the Principal

Dear Parents,

I can’t believe we have reached the final month of the 2017-18 school year. What a great year this has been! It has passed by so quickly. During the month of May there are several things on the calendar so please take a look at our website for up to date information. (lomondview.wsd.net)

Currently, our 3rd-6th grade students are taking their end of year SAGE tests. I have been so impressed to see how hard our students are working at doing their best to show what they have learned this year. DIBELS end of the year testing will be next week for our K-3rd grade. We appreciate you having your students on time each day and well rested.

During the summer we will send out information regarding next school year. We will not be sending a letter in the mail but it will go out electronically. As a result, one important reminder is to make sure you have accessed the WSD Portal and we have a current email address. Through the portal system is how we send out our emails. If you are not sure if you have an account or you need assistance to create an account please contact our office at (801) 452-4780. In the fall, registration will take place online through the WSD MyWeber Portal system.

Thank you for your ongoing support this year to help us have a successful school year. I have really enjoyed getting to know your children this year. Lomond View is a great place to be!

Sincerely,

Mr. Skeen


Parent Request Procedure

Dear Parents,

This has been a great school year so far, and we are looking forward to a wonderful final quarter of the year. Very soon our 3rd-6th grade students will start their end of level SAGE testing. This is a great opportunity for students to show all they have learned during the school year in math, language arts, and science. Please make sure your child is well rested and has a good breakfast in the morning on the days they are testing.

Beginning the middle of April, we begin to make preparations for your child’s success for the 2018-2019 school year. Teachers and administration work together to place students in classrooms based on the following criteria: personalities, learning styles, academic abilities, behavior needs, and other considerations for classroom success. As you can see, there are multiple factors we consider as classes are created. We will be very thoughtful in creating balanced classes. Therefore, only classroom requests with specific educational needs will be considered. Our ultimate goal is to create the most positive and productive learning environment possible for all students.

If you feel your child has unique circumstances that we do not know about or has needs that should be considered in his/her class placement for next year, please fill out the request form (available at http://lomondview.wsd.net/images/studentconcerns2018-19.pdf) and return it to Mr. Skeen by April 15, 2018 explaining in detail the concerns you have. Mr. Skeen will meet with all parents or guardians who submit the form to discuss those concerns.

Our goal is to create balanced classes as we work to meet all students needs. As always, I am grateful for the support of such great parents at our wonderful school.

Sincerely,

Mr. Skeen

6th Grade Fundraiser

Lomond View Parents and Friends,

We would like to offer everyone an awesome opportunity to support a good cause while celebrating your student with us. Lomond View 6th grade is putting on a fundraiser this year to help purchase more math and science manipulatives. You can help support us while celebrating your student(s). For our fundraiser you can submit images of your student to be displayed on the TV by the front office for $3 for one week or $5 for two weeks. It is now ready and open for business!

If you would like to celebrate your student(s):

Select and prepare your images.
Landscape orientation is preferred
Jpeg format required
Select an individual image or create a photo collage of multiple images
Please make sure all images are school appropriate
Once prepared, send them in an email as an attached file. Include the following in your email:

Safety During Drop off and Pick up

 transportmap

Here are some basic policies at the school:

1. Don’t park in the red zones. If you need to come into the school for any reason during drop off or pick up times, please use the parking lot to the north of the school.

2. If you are picking up your student after school, pull to the curb and turn off your engine. I learned recently that our children are more susceptible to toxins from idling cars because they take in more air per minute than adults do. Let’s keep them healthy by turning off the cars (AND TRUCKS) while waiting for them to come out.

3. If coming from the north, use the parking lot to pick up.

4. If coming from the south use the church parking lot, 900 W. and the front turn around to pick up children.

5. Don’t block the pull through lane in front of the school waiting for students, it is meant to be used for cars that are pulling through.


If you would like to be more involved, join the PTA. We are excited for next year and we need your help! Please contact Lacey Empey if you are interested: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
