Welcome Back to School

Picture a letter informing parents school resumes on Tuesday, January 8th.

Greetings Southern View Family and Friends!     

School will resume on Tuesday, January 8th. My staff and I really miss our students and communication with you. Remember, unless your child is officially enrolled in the scope program, students should arrive at school on Tuesday at 8:35 am. The school day begins at 8:55 am. 

My hope is that everyone had a great holiday break and an opportunity to engage in learning activities to help develop critical thinking skills. Students were encouraged to read over break and write a summary to share with their classroom teacher and I. Students were also encouraged to practice and demonstrate they know their basic math facts. 

If you have moved or changed your contact information, please notify the office on Monday, January 7th. It is imperative we are able to notify families in case of an emergency and have accurate dismissal information for the safety of our students. 

Please use the student success guide that you received at the beginning of the year or when you enrolled your child at Southern View to review school expectations including bus safety.  

Last, please log on to Southern View’s Webpage and complete the 5 Essential Survey for parents. The Link for parents to take the survey is: http://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/.  The survey will take at least 20 minutes.  All classrooms that have one hundred percent of their parents to complete the survey will have a pizza party.  

Looking forward to seeing 100 % of all students with replenished pencils, crayons, tissue, and coming to school ready to learn!

Utmost Regards, 
Principal Miller
