Eastview Elementary School Times
Dear Eastview Family and Friends,

The leaves are now falling, and we are all enjoying the crisp, cool air when we go outside for our "mask breaks!"

It has been wonderful having the children back in school, and we continue to be very proud of our school community for stepping up to the challenges presented to us as we continue to navigate life with coronavirus. We are happy to report that the month of September celebrated many successes for our building, and we will continue our efforts to keep it so. Students are engaged in learning, excited to be at school, and growing as individuals and as an Eastview team. Thank you, parents, for also doing your part to support our students and our staff.

If you do need to call the office to report that your child is ill, we ask that you please leave a detailed message, including the exact symptoms your child is experiencing, and for how long they have had these symptoms.

If your child is out of school due to COVID exposure, or suspected COVID infection, please provide specific details including when they were exposed to a confirmed case of COVID, their symptoms, and whether they've been tested. Thank you for partnering with us to keep our community safe.

As we look ahead to the month of October, we are excited to celebrate our students as they continue to learn and grow and build-up our Eastview community. As always, we are here to support your children.

Wishing you a joyous Fall season,
Mrs. Erin Zigler

Use of School Technology Resources

Students are taking their chromebooks home nightly. This allows students the ability to complete schoolwork at home as needed. It also allows for the flexibility to access school materials if a student does have to stay home from school.
As a reminder, school-issued chromebooks are to be used for school related materials onlyStudents should not be using school-issued chromebooks for personal emails and/or personal use. Please reinforce this usage expectation with your child.

Social Media, the Internet, and
Your Child's Safety

Frequent discussions with your child about
online safety and their online lives
can have a major influence on a child's behavior.

Interact! is an online, interactive, e-course created for parents and guardians to complete with their children, with the goal of sparking basic online safety discussions in the home. This 30 minute module provides parents with the opportunity to review their own tech use to set a good online example; interactive activities to complete alongside their children; and follow-up resources and activities to keep the discussions going. Be your child’s trusted adult. Interact! and stay safe!
The Interact! program was created by the Wisconsin Department of Justice Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
The Lake Geneva Schools will be starting 5th Grade Band and 5th Grade Orchestra on Monday, Oct. 19th. 4th Grade Orchestra will begin the week of November 2.
