Teacher assignments will be sent out before the Back to School Fair, Tuesday August 16th .
How does drop-off and pick-up work at Valley View? What if I have a student at both Valley View and Shady Lane?
The drop-off and pickup times at Valley View are busy times and safety is our number one priority. Please watch this brief video outlining our procedures.
We require that all students be picked up by 4:00 pm. (2:45 on Wednesdays) We understand that sometimes parents might be late, so just give us a call. However if the student is being picked up late more than just a few times, we will ask that you enroll them into an after school program.
Who do I contact if my child will be absent?
If the absence is scheduled in advance, please send a note with your child with the child's full name, teacher name, dates they will be absent and reason for the absence. If your child is ill or going to be late to school, please leave an absence voicemail before 9:00 am by calling 262-250-2620.
What is the difference between being tardy or leaving early vs being marked absent?
Students who arrive more than 30 minutes late, or leave more than 30 minutes early will be marked with a 1/2 day absence. If they arrive or leave within that 30 minute window, they will be marked Tardy or Left Early.
If a student leaves in the middle of the day for an appointment and then returns, they will be marked with a 1/2 day absence if they are gone longer than 30 minutes..
How do I let the school know that my child will be late, will be leaving early or there is change to their end of day routine?
Please send a note with your child with the date, child full name, teacher name and the pick up details. If there is a change that needs to be made during the day, please call school at 262-250-2620 before 3 p.m. if at all possible. Last minute requests can be disruptive to the classroom and should be avoided if possible. To minimize the loss of learning time for students and congestion in the office, we will call students to the office AFTER you arrive at the school to sign them out. Please plan accordingly and allow at least five minutes for students to arrive to the office after you arrive.
Is there after or before school care at Valley View?
Students may be dropped off at school no earlier than 8:30 a.m. and must be picked up by 4:00 pm. If students need before or after school care, the CE&Rec department runs the Kids Inc program. For more information and to sign up, please visit the CE&Rec website.
Many of the local area day cares also provide shuttle service for students to Valley View.
