Egg Drop Email

Wildcat Families –

We kicked off our annual Egg Drop fundraiser this morning with our students. A fun video was shared to help introduce the egg drop with your students and packets were handed out. The packet has all of the specific information and details on it, please read through that together with your child. Donations can be collected in the packet envelope or be paid online at our school website or directly at https://www.successfund.com/eggdrop2020. Packets will be due next Friday, Oct 2. Our goal is to have every packet returned! This year we are raising money to help fund all the amazing programs sponsored by our PTA such as: Battle of the Books, Meet the Masters Arts Program, Internet Safety, STEM night, as well as to help purchase STEM supplies for our teachers in their classroom! This is a great program where we learn together and support our school. Our students love to engineer their egg drop and enjoy a fun picnic with their family!

  • ASAP parents complete Egg Drop Parent Picnic Survey: CLICK HERE

Reminder – Please send your student with a mask to school each day. There are a surprising number of students “forgetting” their masks. We wear them each day so we can stay in school. Please do what you can to support us with this! Parent Pro Tip: put a couple of extra masks in your child’s backpack, so they will always have a mask with them at school!

Thanks for your support of all things Crimson View. The greatness of the school is magnified by your support!

Sept 11 – CVES Update

Wildcat Families,

Thank you for a great start to the school year! We’ve gotten back into the routine of school and overall things are going very well. I wanted to briefly reach out to each of our Crimson View families and share a couple of reminders.

  1. Early Release PLC – next Monday, Sept 14 we will follow our Friday schedule, dismiss at 1:15pm. This allows teachers to learn and grow professionally as well as prepare more in depth so they can effectively work with your children.
  2. Student Face Coverings – please remember to send your student with a mask each day. A face shield can be used if preferred, simply complete approval form in the office. (Face Shield is defined as a face covering that covers the entire face; protects the eyes of the wearer; is made of clear plastic; secures at the top of the head; does not secure under the chin) Parent Pro Tip: place an extra mask in your student’s backpack so that even if they forget their regular mask they have a backup ready to use.
  3. Toys – All toys are better left at home so they are not lost, broken, or stolen at school. Our classroom teachers have plenty of equipment for students to play with during recess. Additionally, toys can be a distraction to student learning. Please check in with your student, remind them to keep their toys at home.
  4. Student Safety – Please review your daily plan with your child regarding how they come and go from school. Talk about safety with them. Many students enjoy walking or riding a bike to and from school. Plan a safe route for them to use each day as they travel to and from school. Make sure your child understands how important it is to be safe and cautious while on roadways and especially at intersections.

I’ve been thrilled to be back in school with your children. They are exceptional human beings and I have a great hope in the future because of them! It is an honor to interact with them each day.

Please continue to make time to read for 20 minutes at home each night. When your student knows how much you value reading and their education they quickly adopt the same values and feelings.

Adam Baker (Principal) | 435-634-7000 | adam.baker@washk12.org

2020-21 New Year Critical Info

Crimson View Families,
 
This is a unique and challenging time as we look forward to the new school year beginning. You can find the WCSD Reopening plan at: https://www.washk12.org/district/district-blog/415-2020-21-reopening-of-schools-plan
 
WCSD has created a survey to help us as we plan for the school year. Please take the time to thoughtfully complete this survey at your earliest convenience! The survey will close at 11:59pm on Sunday, August 2.
Survey Link: http://go.washk12.org/wcsd2020 (you’ll need to complete the survey separately for each child attending K-12 WCSD Schools) 
 
Obviously, many of you have questions and we’re doing our very best to anticipate and figure out all the answers. Personally, I’m excited to be planning for students to return to school!
 
Here are a few of the anticipated changes you’ll see at Crimson View as we begin this 2020-21 school year:
·   Masks: Students will be expected to wear a face covering throughout the day. I’m hopeful that this will be a short term requirement. WCSD will provide two masks to each student. I would encourage each of you to try different face coverings, figure out which ones work the best for you and your student(s) so that they can be comfortable here at school. Bottom line, I want students to be in school! Our school staff will do all we can to promote social distancing, good hygiene, and the wearing of a face covering throughout the school day so that we can stay in school.
·   Classrooms:  Desks will be spread apart as much as we can and students will be facing away from one another. Students should bring a water bottle from home and use their water bottle throughout the day instead of the school drinking fountains.
·   Lunch: The lunch schedule will be stretched out so that only one grade level is in the lunchroom at a time. Students will sit with more spacing. Lunch tables will be sanitized between classes.
·   Pickup and Dropoff:  Crimson View has a system in place for drive-through drop off and pickup. Please follow directions, please be patient in line, also be alert and safe. If you need to get out of your car, please park in the parking lot and use the crosswalks.
·   Cleaning and Disinfecting: Our custodial staff as well as teachers will be cleaning and disinfecting throughout the day. High touch points (door knobs, counters, etc.) will be cleaned multiple times each day.
·   Symptoms: If your child is not feeling well or shows symptoms of any kind do not send them to school. If a child develops symptoms after they arrive at school we will notify parents to come and pick their child up.
·   First Day of School and Back to School Night: We will not be having a traditional back to school night. Individual teachers will send their new class a video or presentation so students can meet their teacher virtually. Parents will get to meet the teacher and visit with them one-on-one in the classroom during the first full week of school at the student’s testing appointment. On the first day of school, we ask that students line up by their teacher’s door on the outside of the building.
 
I hope that each of you are excited for school to begin. I’ve been meeting with teachers and school staff in anticipation of the new school year, we are all excited to have students back in our building! We’re excited to learn and grow together!
 
I look forward to seeing each of you on Aug 13!

I know that parents have been supportive and worked extremely hard as well. And I want to especially give a shout out to our students!!! Way to go! I’m so proud of each of you for doing your best to make this work! I can’t wait for things to get back to our new normal. I’ve been amazed by some of the awesome things you’ve accomplished that teachers have shared with me. Thank you for giving your best effort. We’ve got a couple of weeks left … let’s finish strong. My constant plea will be to read each day, even during the summer!!

Keep smiling, keep working hard, you are amazing!
