First Day of School

Dear Valley View Families, I am eagerly counting the minutes until tomorrow for school to start. Reminder that everyone will enter campus from the Orange Avenue stairs. School starts at 8:15 and students need to be in line at 8:12. Please come a little early so you can enjoy the music, see old friends or meet new ones, take a picture at our selfie station, and find your classroom line. Parents are welcome to walk their child to the classroom door with the class line on the first day. Parking will be difficult, please be a good neighbor and do not block or park in our neighbors’ driveways.

If you have not been near school in a while, Pennsylvania Avenue is closed at Stevens. The city told me that the east side of the sidewalk will remain open for foot traffic to school. Traffic traveling north on Pennsylvania will be detoured to Ramsdell and back to Pennsylvania on El Caminito. The City went out to bid on the project, and work is to begin soon. We can expect to have a few weeks of extra heavy traffic. Please add time to your commute to account to these delays.
Don’t forget to drop by the MPR after school starts for our Howdy coffee event.

Go Eagles!
