Our annual teacher conferences will be held Wednesday, October 7 through Friday October 9. Note that there is no school for learners on Friday, October 9 as teachers conduct conferences during the school day. This is a day off from school, not a Remote Learning Day. Summitview will again utilize MyConferenceTime, which will allow families to schedule their own parent conferences online. A letter of information and directions was sent home with your child today. Click this link (https://5il.co/l2wy) to access an electronic copy of the letter. In order to limit traffic in the building we are not hosting face-to-face parent conferences this year. Instead, conferences will be held virtually. After scheduling your conference, teachers will add a unique URL to your appointment which will allow you to participate in a virtual conference through any internet-connected device. Please contact your child’s teacher via email if you would prefer to conduct the conference over the phone.  WASD is proud of the connections we make between our school, our learners, and their families. We hope all families will take advantage of this opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher to discuss their progress to this point.  MyConferenceTime is now open for families to schedule a conference. The system will close to electronic scheduling on Wednesday, September 30 at 11:00 am. Please contact your child’s teacher if you need assistance in scheduling.  Thank you for your continued support. Have a good evening and stay #BoroStrong!

Hello Summitview families, A few reminders for this week as well as some general info: Don't Forget - Wednesday, September 8 is NOT a remote learning day. Learners not enrolled in one of the district’s online learning programs will report to school on Wednesday. 1. Thanks for your patience as we get our dismissal plan worked out. Beginning today we are only calling car rider numbers, not learner names. If you need a number, please email Mrs. Ebersole at pam_ebersole@wasdpa.org to obtain a form. 2. School Picture Day will be Friday, September 11. Picture day order forms were sent home Friday. Ordering pictures is optional however all learners will have their picture taken for school IDs.  3. Prizes from the Kids Heart Challenge conducted in the spring and have been distributed. All learners should have their prizes by early next week. Please email Mr. Hedrick at casey_hedrick@wasdpa.org. 4. A few additional reminders: *Learners must have a mask daily and must put it on upon arrival at school. We suggest keeping an extra in your child’s book bag just in case. *All cafeteria money should be sent in an envelope clearly labeled with the learner’s name and grade. The cafeteria staff cannot accept money as learners go through the line. *At this time all water fountains in the building are turned off and have been replaced with water bottle filling stations. All learners need to bring a reusable water bottle, labeled with his/her name, to school each day. Some teachers have been providing disposable cups this week but we cannot continue that practice long term.

Information regarding tomorrow's scheduled Remote Learning day. Summitview Learners in grades 3-5 will be taking their chromebooks home today. Within the case are directions to connect the chromebook to your home wifi network as well as a hard copy of the district's Acceptable Use Policy and Access for All handbook. These copies are for your reference and may be left at home. Grade 3-5 learners will have the opportunity to participate in a live class meeting with their teacher tomorrow morning at 9:00 am. If your learner cannot participate at that time, the meeting will be recorded to be viewed at a later time on Wednesday. Other assignments for the day will be completed independently. If learners have questions about their work, teachers will be available between 2:30 and 3:30 pm for office hours. Information to access the live class meeting and office hours will be posted in your child's Google Classroom account. Please remember that tomorrow is a scheduled school day. Per Pennsylvania Department of Education requirements, learners must log in AND complete all assignments in order to be considered in attendance on Remote Learning Days. All assignments must be completed by 8:00 pm tomorrow. Learners in grades K through 2 will have their Chromebooks for Remote Learning days beginning Wednesday, September 16.

Hello Summitview families! We’ve been getting some questions about masks so the elementary principals put together this video of do’s and don’ts when it comes to wearing a face covering at school. Please keep in mind that Governor Wolf’s order in July mandates masks or face coverings so all learners will need to wear one upon arrival to school each day. https://youtu.be/k67Eq-zOYGE Please help us spread the word!

During this evening's WASD Board of School Directors meeting, the Board voted on and approved an additional open enrollment opportunity specifically for Summitview learners entering 4th grade in the 2020-21 school year (3rd grade learner during the 2019-20 school year).

For the past two years, Summitview has partnered with School Kidz, a company that assembles School Supply kits tailored to the supplies our teachers in each grade level request. Our binding contact with this company was signed before the redistricting plan for next school year was approved by the district and before schools closed due to COVID-19. Therefore, we will proceed with making School Kidz supply kits available to our families to purchase for next school year, but this purchase is completely optional. School supply lists will be available at a later date for families that wish to purchase supplies on their own and for families whose child will attend a different elementary school next year. If you are interested in purchasing a School Supply kit for your learner, orders can be placed directly through the School Kidz Teacher Tailored website - www.shopttkits.com You’ll enter our school account code – 61956 and press the magnifying lens to see the kits for Summitview. Please remember to order the kit for the grade your child will be entering next school year. School supply kits will arrive at Summitview this summer and will be delivered to your child’s homeroom before the first day of school. Again, it is suggested that only learners who will remain at Summitview for the 20-21 school year participate. Please contact our building secretary, Mrs. Ebersole, at pam_ebersole@wasdpa.org if you have any questions.

This week, as we celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, many of our Shark Learners and Families may be wondering how we can show appreciation to the teachers when we are not together. Here are some ideas to show our Shark Staff how much we appreciate them. 1. Have your child color a picture for their teacher in appreciation of their awesomeness and email it to them. 2. Take a picture of your child learning from home and send it to their teacher. 3. Write an email to your child’s teacher expressing your gratitude for all they’ve done this year, especially while adapting to remote teaching and learning. 4. Wear red on National Teacher Day, Tuesday, May 5, 2020 and share that you’re wearing red to recognize teachers on social media using the hashtag #RedForED (don't forget to include our's too - #SVSharks) Wear your Summitview Spirit Wear on Friday, May 8, 2020 and share a photo with your child’s teacher.

Information from this afternoon's BoroBlast: Beginning Tuesday, April 14, WASD will transition to Planned Instruction. We hope that most of our learners will be able to access Planned Instruction online but also understand that some families may require hard copy materials. Please visit the WASD Website News Feed section to review a frequently asked question document with additional information about Planned Instruction, grading, and attendance. The district understands that every home learning environment looks different. Therefore, we are providing one hour of required instruction for each day, and two additional hours of enrichment per day. Planned Instruction is intended to be flexible in order to accommodate each family’s schedule. Online learning will be delivered through Google Classroom. Your child’s teacher has already sent email information to families with directions for learners to access Google Classroom using Clever. Please contact your child’s teacher via email if you need assistance. If you did not receive an email, please contact the school office either by phone at 717-762-1191 x1800 or by emailing Mrs. Ebersole at pam_ebersole@wasdpa.org to provide an email address. If you have previously requested paper enrichment materials, you are automatically on the list for new Planned Instruction materials. Building secretaries will be reaching out to families regarding pick-up time. If your child cannot access online learning materials and is not currently on the hard-copy list, please contact your child’s school at 717-762-1191 x1800 as soon as possible. Please use the enclosed log to keep track of what your child completes each day. A staff member will be in touch with your family once per week to check on your child’s progress and answer any questions. These materials include two weeks of activities for Planned Instruction. Families should follow the directions included with the materials to return to school by Friday, April 24. Finally, please help us keep open lines of communication by checking your email daily as well as listening to voicemails left by school staff. Thank you for your continued support. Stay healthy, and stay #BoroStrong!

Good evening Summitivew families, At this time, office personnel were given the option to work from home so Mrs. Ebersole (pam_ebersole@wasdpa.org) and I will be mostly working from home. If you need to get in contact with either of us, please do so by email. My email address is diane_mccallum@wasdpa.org. If you were scheduled to have a meeting at school this week or next, that meeting has been postponed. You will be contacted by phone by the end of the week for any of the following meetings - special education (contact from Mrs. Conn), REACH (contact from Mrs. Rooney), 504 (contact from Mr. Newhard). District administrators compiled a list of online educational resources for learners today. This list includes sites we use regularly at school, as well as additional sites that our technology department has determined are safe for learners. This list will be available by the end of the week on the district website and I will share that link on the SV Facebook page.  Please check your email for a list of events scheduled this week that have been postponed to a later date. A note about some of our non-human friends at Summitview - Mr. Lego has taken home our remaining crayfish and fifth grade eggs are at home too! PTO let me know that Silver Graphics art orders will be accepted through May 1. I will share ordering information through the Summitview Facebook page once it's available. If you'd like the order sooner, you can pay a small fee for delivery to your home. Mrs. Snowberger planned for the Scholastic Book Fair to be held this week. Unfortunately we had to cancel our physical book fair but Mrs. Snowberger has made arrangements with Scholastic to offer the Book Fair online.  If you are interested, please order by March 22 using this link: https://www.scholastic.com/bf/wasdsummitview  Our cafeteria staff began serving lunches, which also include breakfast for the next day, to any learner in the district age 18 or younger. Note that the child must be present to receive a lunch. Kudos to our cafeteria staff who served 119 lunches today! Finally, the elementary principals are planning some fun activities for learners to complete at home in the coming days. If you haven't already, please "like" Summitview Elementary on Facebook and/or check the "Live Feed" section of the Summitview website to join in! We are navigating a situation many of us never expected to encounter. I thank you for your flexibility and hope that all of our families are safe.  Take care, Diane McCallum
