Mountain View School
Supply List 2014 - 2015
- Visitor's Policy
All visitors, including parents, must sign in at the front office upon
their arrival to the school. To preserve security and to protect
instructional time, visitors may not proceed to classrooms during
instructional time unless they have a specific appointment to volunteer. Hours for the
instructional day are 7:20 AM - 2:25 PM. Please note
that school volunteers are now mandated reporters of child abuse.
- Parents are encouraged to eat lunch with
their children. Please note, fast food or restaurant food may not be
brought into the school cafeteria.

Procedures. This year, we are using car
rider tags during afternoon car pool.
- Morning drop off/car pool line begins
at 7:20 AM. Teachers are required to be in their classrooms at
7:20. Unless other arrangements have been made with a teacher or
administrator, students may enter the school no earlier than
7:20 AM for their safety
- Late afternoon check out needs to occur prior to 2:00 PM.
Our front office is very busy with dismissal
from 2:00 PM - 2:30 PM.
Regular and consistent attendance
is important for our students and their academic progress. Mountain View
follows the county’s attendance policy with the following procedures:
After 3 unexcused absences, the teacher will make
contact with parents.
After 5 unexcused absences, administration will
send a letter home to parents.
After 7 unexcused absences, a referral to the
school social worker is made.
Please note that excessive absences (both excused
or unexcused) can result in a referral to the school social worker.
Tardies and repeated early checkouts are impactful to learning as well.
Bus Lot/Fire Lane
Travel through the bus entrance or bus lot is
prohibited during times when buses are due to load and unload students.
This is a huge safety concern so our staff will take license plates of
offending vehicles and turn them over to the district's Public Safety
Please do not park at the front curb even to run a quick errand in the
front office as this is our fire lane. The Fire Marchall has been
monitoring schools and issuing tickets to any cars parked in a fire
- Transportation Changes
Should you need to change your child’s afternoon dismissal,
please send a written note to the classroom teacher that morning. You
may not send transportation changes to email because the district
has a strong SPAM filter that on occasion captures parent emails.
Additionally, if the teacher happens to be absent, your email will not
be received by the substitute. Last minute changes in your child’s
dismissal cannot be accepted by telephone
and MUST be received prior to 2:00 PM. You may send a fax to the
school describing the needed change along with your signature to
770-578-7267. Follow up with a call to the office staff to verify
receipt of your fax.
- Buzz In System
For security reasons, Mountain View does have all exterior
doors locked with a front door buzz in system. All visitors, including
parents, must buzz and state their intended business to gain entrance.
Visitors must then sign in at the front office and list their
destination. To preserve security and to protect instructional time,
visitors may not proceed to classrooms during instructional time unless
they have a specific appointment to volunteer. Also, administrators have
set schedules that frequently have them observing in classrooms so they
do prefer meeting with parents by appointment. Those can be scheduled
through the school secretary.
