Happy October! I can't believe that we have now completed the first month of school. I am so impressed with the many positive interactions I have seen between teachers, students, and parents during my daily campus walk-throughs.
As a school community, we are conscious of and driven to serve the needs of our students. This applies to the whole child including their social, emotional, and physical needs and safety. As such, we regularly review and refine our building, grade level team, teacher, and individual student goals. This is one of the exciting parts of my job: Seeing and engaging our staff in these types of conversations (Ex. Improving instructional practices based on what we know about our students).
As we continue to get to know our students, we will be able to share details with you in the month of November via Parent- Teacher Conferences. That said, please do not hesitate to reach out sooner, if there are matters that need immediate attention. Happy Fall!!

Each year in Northshore schools, students in grades Kindergarten, 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7 receive hearing and vision screenings. We are currently scheduled for vision and hearing screenings on October 22nd. If you would like to exempt your child from either of these health screenings, please contact the school nurse.
It is important to understand that these are basic screenings, and are designed to identify students who may require further testing. They are not intended to replace regular exams by qualified health care providers. A student who does not pass any screening will be rechecked in a few weeks, and you will be notified only if there are concerns after the second screening.
Vision screening uses the PlusOptix. The PlusOptix is an autorefractor that takes a measurement of the refraction of the eyes. The results are a baseline refraction measurement. The illumination technique used by Plusoptix, is totally harmless to the child's eyes. If your child wears glasses or contact lenses for distance or near vision, please be sure they have them on the screening day.
If your child has a hearing loss and is being followed by a healthcare provider or specialist and you do not wish for them to participate in the screening, please let the school nurse know. If you have concerns about hearing loss and school accommodations, contact your student’s teacher or the school nurse.
Tuesday, October 26th is Individual Picture Day! Every student attending the Northshore Virtual Program has been assigned a classroom teacher at Shelton View for when they return to in-person schooling. Your child’s teacher will be sending you their class’s picture time. If possible, please join your child’s SV class during their picture time. If you are unable to come during the timeframe the teacher sends out, you are welcome to come between 12:10- 12:40PM.
See the red box below to order pictures, and bring the receipt for the photographer. Paper copies are available in the office as well.
Picture retakes will be on Tuesday, November 23rd from 9:30-11:30AM.
Please email email@example.com with any questions!
Unsure about COVID protocols? The county health guidelines require students to have a negative COVID PCR test before they can return to school for 1 or more symptoms of any duration. They also must have had no known contact with someone with COVID-19. Once you have provided the school with the negative test result, your child can return to school if they have been fever-free, without the use of medication, for 24 hours and the other symptoms have improved.
Be sure to keep an eye on the NSD website for any COVID protocol updates!
Coats and Jackets
Fall weather means rain in the Northwest! Please make sure your students are bringing a coat or jacket to school daily as there isn't always a cover available during recesses. While many students love to wear hoodies instead of a coat or jacket, most hoodies are made of cotton and soak in the rain instead of repelling, thus the student comes to class cold and wet. If you are in need of a donated coat or jacket for your student, you may contact Threads and Threads in Canyon Park.
