We are currently seeking a softball coach for the upcoming spring season.  If anyone is interested please contact Brian McCarthy at 508-829-5577 or by email brian_mccarthy@wrsd.net.  Thank you !!!!



Attention all Parents 

Just a friendly reminder that if you need to drop your child off in the morning that students are not allowed in the building until 8:00 am.   There are mornings that the teachers will be in meetings and unavailable for extra help.  PLEASE make sure your child is dressed appropriately as they will have to wait outside. 


 Attention all parents: this year, we have several students in our school with severe food allergies. Please click here to read an important letter containing information related to food allergies. Also, please click here to view a list of allowed snack/food items to send to school with your child. We hope that everyone will be cooperative in this venture, so that we can help to ensure the safety of all Mountview students.


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 parents/guardians of 7th grade students: please click here to read a letter from Superintendent McCall regarding criteria for Grade 8 placement in Algebra classes.

Important information regarding morning extra help - please read!

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. 

Important Information Regarding Private HS Registration Process:

If you are planning to have your child attend a private/ independent school in high school, please follow the guidelines below to ensure that paperwork is completed by Mountview staff and mailed in a timely manner:
1. Allow five school days for requests to be processed.
2. Sign the transcript release allowing the school to mail records to the receiving school.
3. Be sure to include a stamped and addressed envelope to the receiving school.
Please contact Erik Githmark at Erik_Githmark@wrsd.net if you have any questions.

Homework Requests

FYI, homework requests are not done until a student has been absent for three days. Please request the homework when you call your child in sick on the morning of the third day. Many teachers post assignments on their websites, so it is a good idea to check there first whenever your child is absent.
