Dear Parents/Guardians,

On Behalf of the Norwood View Elementary staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year.  We are thrilled that you have entrusted your child’s education to us.  Be assured that we are dedicated to providing an educational experience of the highest quality for every student.  

We are fortunate to welcome two new, outstanding educators to the View family.  Rachel Colaw comes to the View as an Intervention Specialist after serving in that same capacity at Batavia Middle School.  She will be a tremendous asset to our special education department.  Carli McGovern has served the View as an educational aide, an active parent and a former PTA President.  We are excited to welcome Ms. McGovern back as our new third grade ELA teacher.

We will continue our safe student drop off/pick up procedures that were implemented last year.  Hannaford Avenue traffic will travel one way from east to west during arrival (8:15-8:35) and dismissal (3:00-3:30) times.  These changes have greatly improved the traffic flow, providing our students a much safer transition to and from school.  Remember to always drop off/pick up your child on the street curb closest to the school building and encourage them to always use the crosswalk.  

This year we join the other Norwood elementary schools by serving breakfast in the classroom.  Upon morning arrival, all students will enter through the front door from 8:15-8:35.  Students will then safely transition to their classroom with the opportunity to enjoy breakfast with their classmates.  We are confident these new arrival procedures will encourage students to begin their school day with a healthy breakfast in a calm, safe, comfortable environment.  Should your child need to arrive earlier than 8:15, you may take advantage of the Avenues for Success before school program (924-2705).  The cafeteria door and other side entrances should not be used during morning arrival.

Do not forget about our annual Pre-View OPEN HOUSE on Tuesday August 20th.  Everyone will assemble in the auditorium at 4:00 p.m. for a brief introduction before touring the school and meeting your child’s new teacher.  

We look forward to seeing the smiling faces of all our View students for their first day of the school year Wednesday August 21st at 8:15 a.m.!

Sincerely,


Lin Yates
Principal
