On December 11th, 2020 the New Mexico Department of Health and the New Mexico Public Education Department implemented a mandate that will be in effect starting January 4th, 2021. All schools will provide virtual instruction and related services from January 4th through January 15th. On January 19th 2021 students will continue to receive services the same way they did in the fall. Teachers and related services providers will contact parents or guardians to schedule virtual services.

Some of our Parkview Guidelines...
Please have any deliveries of gifts, balloons, flowers, etc., made to your student's homes, as we are unable to accept these deliveries at the school.
Procedures for Afternoon Pickup of Students
Parkview's pick up procedures are designed to better ensure our children's safety.
For our students who do not go home on our buses, these are the pick-up procedures:
For vehicle pickup, the driver will post the name placard of the student in (or on) their windshield so that the person(s) on duty can call for the child to come out of the cafeteria.
For walking pickup, parents will walk along the side of the building to the cafeteria door where they will present their student's placard. The employee on duty will call the child for the parent.
Parents without name placards will need to come to the front office and show their picture ID and sign their student out. *
Please know that we do this for our students' safety.
We thank you in advance for your full cooperation with pick-up procedures.
*Name placards will be replaced within 48 hours once reported at the office as lost. (Parents can also send a note with their child to inform the office.)
While we do want our students to express their individual style, we require that the following guidelines be used when dressing for school daily.
All Clothing should have NO images or references of drugs, gangs, weapons, alcohol, sex or sexual content. Clothing should be worn appropriately and properly fastened. No excessively tight clothing. No see-through clothing may be worn. Undergarments should not be visible.
Hats, Caps, Hoodies, or any type of Headgear may not be worn in buildings at any time.
Make-up may not be worn at the elementary level.
Shirts and Tops: No crop tops—(showing the stomach/midriff) are allowed. Low plunging/cut necklines, halter tops, spaghetti straps, tank tops, muscle shirts (sleeveless shirts with low cut arm holes) are not allowed.
Shoes need to be worn at all times. They need to be well-fitting and tied (when they have laces) at all times. House slippers are not permitted. Appropriate footwear for PE is required (tennis shoes).
Shorts, Skirts, and Pants: Shorts and skirts may be not be shorter than mid-thigh length. Pants may not show exposed skin above mid-thigh length. Leggings or tights must be worn underneath the pants if there are rips, holes, or tears above mid-thigh length.
Sleepwear SHOULD NOT be worn to school, unless it is a school-sponsored "Pajama Day."
Dress code applies to all school days, including fun days and field trips, unless otherwise noted.
Classrooms are allowed two parties each semester. Parents may bring a healthy snack on the day of their child's birthday (one that is commercially prepared as per state requirement). However, any activities relating to the student birthday will be limited to a time limit at the teacher’s discretion, and must not interfere with class instruction. Parents should notify teachers at least two days in advance, and speak with the teacher concerning food allergies of students in the classroom.
Volunteer Procedures for Parkview Elementary
We welcome volunteers at Parkview Elementary School, and in an effort to maintain a structured school climate that is conducive to learning, we have developed a fair and responsible set of expectations.
· Volunteers who plan to help out on a regular basis will need to be fingerprinted for a background check at central office. Central office personnel will be happy to inform them of the requirements as needed.
· Volunteers will sign-in at the front office each day they are volunteering.
· Volunteers will wear a visitor’s tag while they are on our school grounds.
· Volunteers may volunteer a maximum of 10 hours per week or 2 hours per day.
· Volunteers will always be in the presence of staff members, and not be left in charge of a group of students without a school staff member present.
· Volunteers will help out at the school on their own, without bringing other family members with them.
· Volunteers will maintain student confidentiality.
· Volunteers will follow the staff dress code and appearance policy while they are volunteering on campus or with our students on a field trip:
o Staff Dress Code and Appearance Policy- All teachers and staff are expected to dress in a manner that exhibits professionalism. While casual clothing and shoes are practical and thereby acceptable, at no time are teachers and staff (including substitutes) to wear sweats, pajamas, shorts, spaghetti straps, low-cut blouses/shirts, baggy pants, or any other clothing that could potentially be deemed inappropriate. Jeans are acceptable as long as they are neat and clean, without rips or holes, and as long as they are accompanied by a sweater, blouse, or shirt. Fridays can be reserved for more casual dress; school spirit attire, school T-shirt/sweatshirt.
Welcome and thank you for volunteering on our campus!
Food from Restaurants
Students may not receive items from fast food or sit-down restaurants during the school day. If a student forgets to bring a lunch, free lunch is provided by the district. Bringing outside food can jeopardize our Free Lunch Program for 100% of our students.
Parent Observation Procedures
Observations in Classrooms by Parents
· Who May Visit: The right to observe a child’s instructional program during classroom time resides solely with a child’s parent, legal guardian, or foster parent and does not extend to other children, siblings, grandparents, other interested close relatives, or caregivers.
· Scheduling: Visits must be scheduled through the Principal for a time and date convenient to both the parent and the teacher. The parental observation date shall be within a reasonable time frame following the initial request. A request for a specific date must be made no less than 48 hours in advance. No visits will be allowed while students are participating in assessments, quizzes or tests.
· Duration: To minimize potential interruptions and distractions during instructional time, the Principal reserves the right to limit the duration of classroom observations.
· Who May Be Observed: The sole purpose of a classroom visit by a parent is to observe their student and the instructional program being presented. At no time should a parent’s motive for or focus of a classroom visit be to observe another student or students in the classroom. If the Principal has knowledge of or suspects that the focus of a parent’s classroom visit is to observe another student, he/she reserves the right to deny a requested visit or to end a visit in progress.
· School Administration: In certain cases, the Principal or his/her designee may also be in the room during the parent observation to protect the learning environment for all students.
· Parent Conduct During Classroom Visitation: Parents visiting classrooms should arrange their schedules to enter and exit the classroom in a manner that would not interrupt the instructional activities in progress. While visiting the class, the teacher will designate an area for parents to sit, generally in the back of the classroom. (Parents are asked NOT to sit with their student as this could create an unnecessary disruption for other students.) Once in the classroom and seated, parents are asked to remain seated and refrain from interacting with students or the teacher unless the classroom teacher initiates the interaction. Unnecessary noise and/or movement must be kept to a minimum.
· No Audio or Video Recording of Classroom: Video and/or audio recording of classroom visits by the parent or guardian is prohibited. Violation of this guideline can result in dismissal from the classroom visit, and/or school site.
· Parent Wanting to Discuss Observation: Parents wishing to discuss their students’ behavior after observing him/her during class should schedule a parent conference with the teacher. Parents who fail to observe the stated guidelines during their visit may be asked to leave the room if their presence or conduct unduly interferes with the orderly operation of the classroom. Any concerns or complaints may be addressed directly to the classroom teacher after regular school hours or to the Principal.

Info & Announcements during school closure
Schools will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, as per Governor and the New Mexico Public Education Department.
Meals are available for pick up at the school cafeteria; parents MUST use the drive up lane between 8:30 am and 10:30 am.
Internet Access for Students - A Message from Mr. Tull
We have begun a pilot project to provide internet for those without. TechTeam has installed an outdoor wireless access point at the Grads building on Fisher St. It will allow students to access internet from their car; not ideal, but helps with social distancing while students access the internet.
To access, join SCSD-OUTDOOR with the password "Socorro Student" (yes, there is a space between the words; no, the quotes are not included). Content is filtered per CIPA and COPPA requirements but traffic will be monitored to determine if it is excessively used for non-school related access (i.e. gaming and videos)
I do not know if this will work, but these are tough times and TechTeam will try anything to help. Stay Safe!
