Message from Principal Bethards – May 15, 2020

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”Maya Angelou 

Dear Mountain View Families, 

It’s hard to believe that we have just finished week five of distance learning. Our staff continues to work hard to meet the evolving needs of students and families. While the circumstances for some families have remained stable, the realities of others continue to change. We are here to help and, as always, we value your support and feedback.  As we approach the end of this school year, we are beginning the process of reimagining school in the fall. Although there is much still unknown moving forward, we are planning different options of how we will return to school. An important part of the process is hearing from our families. In the coming weeks, we will reach out for your input. We believe in the connectedness of our community and we are confident that, together, we will continue to provide exceptional learning experiences for our students.

Please read below for other updates. 

Take care, 

Byron Bethards 

Principal
