Letter from the Principal

Dear Parents and Students,

I would like to welcome all of you to Lakeview Junior High for the 2018/2019 school year! As I am sure you have noticed, school supplies are filling the shelves of stores, which means the start of school is right around the corner.

I am always excited about the start of a new school year.  I look forward to seeing the students that are returning for another year and eagerly anticipate the new students coming to Lakeview for the first time.  This time is full of many different emotions for students.  It is also sometimes difficult for junior high students to balance and prioritize their academics, the influence of friends, sports involvement, and other factors that can have large impacts. Our staff realizes these many factors and will work to support the unique needs of our students both academically and socially.

Providing a quality education to our students is my top priority. There is nothing more important than educating students to provide them with the greatest access to their dreams.

The junior high level is a time of exploration and self-discovery. Our students have the opportunity to take two periods of electives each day, and we offer a great variety of options for our students. I encourage students to explore different options during their time at the junior high, as it might open a door or pique an interest in something new before making course selections at the high school.

Communication is at the root of most problems or issues that arise in nearly any situation. It is my goal to make sure that we communicate in a way that is efficient and effective this school year, and I hope that I can count on you to communicate with us if you have questions or concerns.

Each Tuesday, via email, I send a newsletter with important upcoming events, news and information. It is critical that your email address is accurate in Infinite Campus, as email is the most popular and efficient means of communication from the teachers and myself.

I look forward to seeing everyone at our Welcome Days and Back to School Night in August. More information about these dates and times are available below under Upcoming Events.

Working Together,

Pam Bertke

On the first day of school, August 15, 2018, all class schedules will be distributed.

Welcome Days Description Details:• Enter through athletic entrance doors behind the flagpoles at Door C.

You will be greeted by Lakeview’s PTO parents informing you of various Lakeview opportunities, you can make your $25.00 PTO donation (in lieu of a fundraiser,) and they will direct you to the next station.

The Clinic: Turn in Emergency Med. Form and T-dap to the clinic.  (both are required).

If no past due fees are owed, you will collect your schedule and proceed to Chromebook pick up in the Media Center.

There will not be any schedule changes done during Welcome Days, however, there will be a table outside the cafeteria for you to drop off schedule change forms. You may also go to room 302 to complete a google form requesting a meeting with your counselor.

Shot Requirements for 7th Graders 2018/2019 School Year

The Ohio Department of Health has added an additional immunization requirement for students entering 7th grade.  Currently, your child is required to get a Tdap shot (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis) to begin their 7th-grade year.  Now, in addition, all incoming 7th graders will need a Meningococcal vaccine (Meningitis).  Meningitis is a vaccine-preventable disease that is on the rise in teens and college dormitories.  Your child may have already received these shots.  Check with your healthcare provider for current vaccine records.  Documentation of receiving these shots will be required to begin school and avoid exclusion.  Please turn in all documentation to the school.  We recommend scheduling early to avoid the rush.  Thank you for your cooperation.  To have your child vaccinated, call and schedule an appointment with your primary care physician or your local Health Department.

Lockers

Locker Directions

Step-by-step directions for locker access:

Your locker number is located at the top of your schedule.

Your locker combination is located beside your locker number on your schedule.

Your locker will be near one or more of your teachers’ rooms that are on your team.

To work a combination lock, make sure that you stop exactly on each number.

Memorize your combination. If you forget your combination, you could end up being late for class. If you have a cell phone, take a picture of your schedule/combination.

Opening Instructions:

1. Spin the dial on your lock to the left 3 times to clear it out.

2. Turn the dial on your lock to the right, passing the first number of your combination two times. On the third time around, stop exactly on the first number in your combination.

3. Turn the lock to the left until you pass the second number in the combination one time, then stop on the second number in the combination the second time around.

4. Rotate the dial on your lock to the right and go directly to the third number in the combination – do not pass it.

5. Push up firmly on the black knob under the lock. Then, while holding the black knob up, open the door towards you. Voila!!

If your locker doesn’t open the first time, try again. It is possible that you may have accidentally stopped on the wrong number. If it doesn’t open after several attempts, ask for assistance. Our custodians are very helpful with lockers.

During Welcome Days, we will have our WEB Leaders available to help with lockers. We will also have locker maps hung on the trophy cases by the teacher’s workroom on each academic floor.

School Lunches

Lunch Price

For middle school, junior high, and high school, the school lunches will be $2.75. Premium meals will be $3.50.

Breakfast prices will be $1.50

Study Tables

Study Tables Description

Study Tables were designed to provide a safe and quiet environment where students can relax, have a snack, and do homework while waiting for their coach or activity advisor to begin their practice/meeting. Since our teacher workday ends at 3:00 p.m., we provide Study Tables coverage until 3:10 p.m.

Please remind your student that athletes are held to a higher standard (it’s in the athletic handbook) and coaches expect them to utilize Study Tables to the best of their ability, to treat all staff respectfully, and to be prepared to be focused and ready-to-go for practices and games at 3:10 p.m.

Lakeview does not give permission for any student to leave Study Tables early, unsupervised. We do want parents to know that some students are leaving school and heading to Wendy’s and Kroger’s during this time. If a student does not stay for Study Tables, they are not permitted back in the building until their coach is here to let them back in the athletic doors C.

We cannot have students coming and going as they please. Should your student have an appointment after school, you will need to make arrangements ahead of time with the coach about your plan to connect your athlete with his/her team/coach.

Please review all of these expectations with your student.
