Library Help: Week of July 1st 

From Mrs. Wright:

I'm doing a big project in the library and need volunteers!
If you are able to help out the week of July 1st - 5th, I will be working all that week.
I am tagging all books in their genre and then reshelving all chapter books.
I will provide snacks! I will be in the library between 8:30 am -3:00 pm.

Volunteering at OV! 


Volunteers are welcome and needed at OV. Help is greatly appreciated in classrooms, school events, field trips and so many other places and times.

 Eagle Packs

Olympic View has teamed up with the University District Food Bank to offer a supply of snacks and meals for children over the weekend, FREE of charge. Bags are distributed every Friday starting September 20th. All Olympic View students are eligible for this program. Examples of the type of food in the packs include milk, juice, cereal, soup, macaroni & cheese, tuna, snacks, and fresh fruit.
Volunteers are needed every Friday from 1:00 - 2:20 pm (small children are welcome) to help pack the food. If you have time to spare, please sign-up. Thank you for your help!


Drop-off/ Pick-up Safety Rules



Please do not get out of your car in the drop-off/pick-up lane (highlighted). This area is intended to be an unassisted drop-off zone. On dark and rainy days it could be dangerous to get out of the car on the driver's side and it slows down the line of cars. For the safety of our community, please follow these important safety rules and use the drop-off lane as a drop-off only. If you need to get out of your car to say goodbye or assist young children, please park in designated parking areas.

Drop-off on 7th: Please do not drop off your child on 7th Ave on the north side of the school. This dead-end road is not a drop-off area.

Staff Parking Lot: This is NOT a drop-off zone before 8:00 am. Only if you are arriving late to drop off your child AFTER 8:00 am (and the front doors are closed), it's safest to drop them off in the back parking. 

Thank you for your cooperation!
