Mountain View High School

Welcome to Mountain View High School

Home of the Cougars!

Principal's Welcome - Fall 2020

I hope our Cougar families are healthy and well! We begin this year very different from any other in recent memory. This summer our staff has been working diligently to prepare for a school year that will begin in the Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL) model. Preparations will continue right up until the first day of school (Monday, September 14th). Opening school in a distance model will challenge all of us to continue to work together to do what we can to ensure high levels of learning for all Cougar students. The decision to return to brick and mortar classrooms will be evaluated by our district leadership every six weeks.

I know the idea of not starting school in the building is hard on students, parents and staff. I encourage all of us to continue to do what we can to decrease the spread of COVID-19 throughout our community, so that we can hit the OHA metrics and open our buildings back up for students and staff.

As we wait for the county health metrics to be met for in person education, our staff will strive to model positivity and flexibility with all of the students and families we will be working with this fall. Our goals during a remote environment are not different from when we are on campus:

  • We believe we are strongest together. Our administrators, teachers and support staff will work together to support your student through the most unique educational journey in history.
  • We will strive to prioritize curriculum that is relevant, engaging, and accessible for our students.
  • Even during remote learning we will look to prioritize relationships and community, and create an environment that is safe and welcoming for ALL students.

Our partnerships with our parents and community are more important than ever. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or ideas. I am humble and proud to serve our students and school during this time. Go Cougars!
