End of Day Policy
Traditions are a wonderful thing, but most of us recognize that over time traditions change for many reasons. One of the traditions at Valley View is that students have been allowed to hang-out after school. There are often students still on campus when administrators leave late in the day. We are seeing a recent increase in vandalism, inappropriate behavior, “cupid concerns”, profanity and other behavior that occurs when students are unsupervised. Because of our concerns for student safety and appropriateness, we are going to start enforcing the handbook’s “End of Day” clause. “All students should be off campus no later than 3:00 unless under the direct supervision of a teacher, administrator or other staff member.” Starting 4/10/17 at 2:30 we will be directing all students to the front of the school to wait for their rides unless they are supervised. At 3:00 the gates will be closed and anyone still waiting for a ride will be instructed to remain in front of the Multi-Use room. There will be no supervision after 3:00 and students should be leaving campus. Students who are under supervision with a teacher will be walked out to the front when their activity is over. Thank you for making arrangements for your students after school.

Earlier this school year, sixth graders wrote personal narratives. More than 30 stories were selected as finalists. All sixth graders were invited to participate in the peer review; the names of the committee members are below. After reading all of the stories, the peer committee met to determine which stories would best represent the talented writers at Valley View. Congratulations to all of these writers. You have much to be proud of!
