Due to the forecasted snowstorm, school in the WRSD has been canceled for Tuesday, January 27th.

Due to the forecast for inclement weather, all after school activities have been canceled for this afternoon, Monday January 26th. This includes Ski Club, Homework Zone, athletic practices and any and all club meetings. All students will be going home via their normal dismissal procedure - either by bus, by parent pickup or as a walker. NO students will be staying after school for ANY reason today!

Monty Tech has canceled the VIP Program scheduled for Wednesday, January 28th. The makeup date will be February 25th. No students should report to Mountview this Wednesday afternoon for this program.

Attention parents: when sending in notes to the office, please be sure to include your child's first and last name. Parents and children often have different last names and parental signatures can be difficult to read. Including both names helps to eliminate any confusion.

Attention Mountview parents: there has been a confirmed case of Pertussis (Whooping Cough) at Mountview. Please click here for an informational sheet from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. While the exposure to Mountview students was minimal due to the winter break, we would like you to be informed of the signs and symptoms. Please contact your child's physician if you have any concerns.

Attention all students and parents: morning extra help does not begin until 7:30. In fact, some teachers do not start their extra help until 7:40 or 7:45. Students should come into the office to see if their teacher is available. If not, students must wait outside until their teacher is ready for students, because there is no supervision available inside the building. With the onset of cold weather, students should dress appropriately for waiting outside. 

Parents: It's flu season! Please click here for an important fact sheet regarding the flu and when to keep your child home. By adhering to these guidelines, you can help us prevent the spread of the flu and flu like symptoms here at Mountview. We want everyone here to stay healthy, so please read!
