SchoolMessenger Message

Message from Sunday, 11/10/19

Good afternoon this is Jeff Hodakowski, principal of Viewmont Elementary, with some announcements.  

This is a reminder that students will be out of school on Monday, November 11th, in honor of Veterans Day.  The school will be closed.   Thank you to all of those that are currently serving or have served in the military.   

Attendance is very important.   Being at school and on time is critical for student success.  However if your child is sick, please do not send them to school.  We are already seeing quite a few cases of strep throat, stomach viruses, and a few cases of the flu. 

To keep the spread of illnesses to a minimum, DO NOT send children back to school until:

  • They have been without a fever for  24 hours (without fever reducing medicine, like Tylenol or Motrin)

  • It has been 24 hours since their last episode of vomiting or diarrhea

  • It has been 24 hours since their first dose of antibiotics for anything like strep throat, pink eye, etc.

We have a collection box for the warm clothing collection drive known as "Project Warmth".  This is located outside of our Media Center.  We are collecting new or gently used coats, scarves, gloves, caps, and blankets.  Collection for Project Warmth will end on December 6th. 

Groucho's Deli is holding a Spirit Night for us on Tuesday, November 12th from 4:00-8:00 PM.  They will donate 10% back to the school.  Please tell your friends and family so that they can help support the school. 

We will have our Pack the Track fundraiser on Friday, November 15th.  We are hoping that the weather will cooperate with us.  If not, we will reschedule. 

Picture Retake day is on Monday, November 18th.  

Students will be out of school starting Wednesday, November 27th for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Students will return on Monday, December 2nd.   

Thanks and have a great afternoon!


It looks like the winter storm has taken another day from us. Students will be out of school on Monday, January 25th. There has not been a decision made about when the snow days will be made up at this time.

Lost and Found has multiplied. Please have students check the media center for any missing items. We will be getting rid of the items at the end of this week.

Report cards will be sent home on Tuesday, January 26th. Awards Day will be on Wednesday, January 27th. Grades 3-5 will be at 9:00 and grades K-2 will be at 10:00.
