We hope that you all took some time to safely enjoy the warmer temperatures and get some much-needed rest and relaxation this weekend. We would like to thank you all for the tremendous job that you have been doing supporting your child(ren) while they learn at home. It is not an easy task and we truly appreciate all of your efforts. Our staff continue to work hard to create positive, safe spaces for our children. As administrators, we are very grateful to our entire Parkview Community.
As we begin to tentatively plan for the year ahead, it is important that you notify the school if you are moving or planning to have your children attend another school in September 2021. You can email the office at Parkview.email@example.com with this information.
Just a friendly reminder that registration is open for any new Kindergarten age student who would be starting here in September 2021. All Kindergarten JK students must be born in 2017 in order to be eligible for registration. Kindergarten registration will be available through Edsby or if you prefer, registration forms can be found on our Board Website. Stay safe!

Please continue to report your child’s absence using Inform. The office will continue to follow up on absences during online learning.
As a school team we are committed to supporting our students, please email the school at firstname.lastname@example.org or your child’s teacher if you have questions or require support. It is important that we all stay home and continue to follow Public Health guidelines in order to curb the spread of COVID 19 in order to protect one another. It has been a challenging year and we thank you for your continued support and flexibility.
Equity & Inclusion At Parkview, we are deeply committed to equity and inclusive education. It is important that as a community we continue to support our children with navigating through events that they see, hear, or feel especially when events are traumatic in a safe and inclusive manner. It is through our shared commitment to equity that we will be able to make the world a better place. Families, these tips to speak with children may be helpful. http://ow.ly/dDAD30rrzMr.
