Principal's Message

Good afternoon Mountain View Families and Staff,

Well, that was certainly a crazy start to 2022.  We do have rain in the forecast this week, so please make sure your child is dressed for the weather.  We have coats and jackets available for students.  Please reach out to our family liaison, Ivette Salamanca if you are in need.  Also, labeling removable clothing items with your child’s name is very helpful!

If you have been watching COVID cases in Mason County, you will notice an increase in cases, much like what is occurring across the country.  In an effort to reduce transmission, we are asking students and staff to wear surgical masks at school.  Omicron is more transmissible and cloth masks alone do not provide enough protection.  If your child comes to school with a cloth mask, we will provide them with a surgical mask to wear either under their cloth mask or in place of their cloth mask.  This is new district guidance starting this week.  We appreciate your understanding as we do all we can to keep staff and students healthy and school open!  

With the start of the “new year”, we are asking families who are able to send water bottles and headphones to school for their children.  This is a friendly request and not a requirement.  We will provide these for any student not able to do so!  We often have parents ask what they can do to help, so we thought we would reach out and ask before we purchase them.

Here are some things happening this week at Mountain View:

  • Winter benchmark testing starts Monday, January 10th and runs through the end of the month.
  • Tuesday, January 11th is our next SSD school board meeting beginning at 6:00 pm
  • Friday, January 14th is a 3-hour early release with school dismissing at 12:30 pm.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided.  School staff will participate in an All-district PD from 1:00-4:00.
  • Monday, January 17th there is no school in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.  We will be having our “People Who Make a Difference” virtual assembly sometime this week or early next week!

Let’s have a wonderful week at Mountain View!

Thank you!

Mary K. Johnson, Principal
