Reminders / Links
Picture Retakes: Picture retakes are set for October 21st. Students that didn't have a picture taken on September 2 will need to have a picture taken for the yearbook. Click HERE for the Dorian Photography flyer.
Masks: We kindly ask for your help in ensuring you are sending your students to school with a mask. When students do not have a mask on a daily basis, we are quickly going through them and with a school of over 500 students, the numbers add up fast! We appreciate your support with this!
Trunk or Treat: We are excited to host our annual Trunk or Treat on Friday, October 29th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. We are asking for your help to make this fun family/community event a success. Our candy drive started this week and the class with the greatest overall "weight" will be rewarded with a party sponsored by our Student Council. Also, get in the spirit and plan to decorate a trunk- click HERE to sign up via Sign Up Genius.
Dyslexia Awareness Month: October is Dyslexia Awareness Month! Dyslexia is the most common learning difference and affects how people learn to read. If you want to learn more about dyslexia and resources available to families and students, click here.
360 School Culture Survey: Don't forget to take the 360 School Culture Survey by Friday, October 22nd. Your feedback is really important to us as we work to ensure access, opportunities and sense of belonging for all! Take the survey now - click HERE
Covid Testing at Eagleview: Keep students in person and at school by enrolling your child in Colorado's free, voluntary, statewide COVID-19 school testing program. This will help us to detect infections early. and get ahead of asymptomatic outbreaks. For more information on the program, please visit https://covid19.colorado.gov/free-testing-schools/. To sign up for testing at Eagleview (beginning on Friday, October 22nd from 12-3), register HERE
Halloween Guidelines: Students at Eagleivew are allowed to wear their costumes to school on Friday, October 29th. Please read through the guidelines below, as we will be enforcing them.
Costumes that are overly graphic, promote violence or otherwise might logically be assumed to be offensive to others.
Costumes that are sexually suggestive and would otherwise violate the district's dress code.
Costumes with sound effects, lights, or other components which would disrupt the learning environment.
Costumes that could be considered insensitive to various races, cultures and religions.
Toy or facimile weapons of any kind (guns, knives, swords, bats, etc.) are not allowed.
Costumes or dress of any kind that may be potentially disruptive to the educational or school environment.
In alignment with Superintendent Policy 5060, school administrators may ask students or participants to change into school appropriate attire and/or remove Halloween masks, makeup, or costumes.
Attendance Matters: While we certainly don't want kids to come to school when they are sick, we still want to very much emphasize that attendance matters. If your child is out, please send them with a doctor's note. After five absences, students will be marked unexcused without documentation. With the interrupted learning that took place last year, the best way to make progress is to ensure your students are here on time every day.
Did You Know?
- Starting in preschool and kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school.
- Missing 10%, or about 2 days each month over the course of a school year, can make it harder to learn to read.
- Students can still fall behind if they miss just one or two days every few weeks.
- Being late to school may lead to poor attendance.
- Absences and tardiness can affect the whole classroom if the teacher has to slow down learning to help children catch up. Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school—and themselves. Start building this habit in preschool so they learn right away that going to school on time, every day is important. Eventually good attendance will be a skill that will help them succeed in high school and college.
Wishing everyone a wonderful fall weekend! Be safe, stay warm and be well!
