Drop off and pick up Reminders

 • Please be aware of the one-way streets on either side of our school. If you need to come in before school, please park out of the drop off area in front of the school.
• When picking up your child after school. Please do not stop in the middle of the road and wait, or ask your child to come to you. Please pull over to the curb and wait your turn. We want to keep everyone safe.
• School starts at 8:00 every day except Mondays when it starts at 9:00. Breakfast starts at 7:35 (8:35 on Mondays) when our building doors are unlocked. Students are not supervised before this. Please make sure your students do not arrive before then. Students arriving after 7:50 (8:50 on Mondays) will not be able to eat breakfast at school.
• Students need to be picked up promptly after school. School dismisses at 3:20 and there is no one to watch them since the staff is off duty shortly after this.

School Safety

All school doors are locked during the school day. An entrance monitoring system is located at our front entrance. Everyone must enter through this door. To enter the building, visitors must press an intercom button, which will activate a voice link and video feed to the office. The visitor must state their name and purpose for entering the building. The visitor will then be allowed to check in at the office. All visitors, even our familiar faces will be required to wear a volunteer or visitor badge. All students must be checked in and out of the office. If you come to check out your child and we do not know you, I.D. will be checked.
Thanks for your support!

Absences and Tardies

Your child is tardy if he is not in his classroom by 8:00. Third through fifth grade students need to allow time to visit their locker before they go to class. Allow time for traffic, trains and the weather. Please call the school office at 788-8555 if your child will be absent.

Weekly Packets

Your child will bring home a packet from school every Thursday. This packet will contain information from the school, parent organization, student work, and communication from the teachers. Please check the contents of the packet and send it back to the school on Friday. The flyers sent home in the weekly packets will also be added to the Pleasantview Virtual Backpack, which can be accessed in the bottom right corner of the Pleasantview webpage near the skyward login. 

Birthday and Snacks Policy

Pleasantview recognizes the importance of noting a child’s birthday. Please contact your child’s teacher before sending birthday treats. Do not send cookies, candy, cakes, donuts, drinks, or plan whole class birthday parties. These will be sent home. A nutritious, prepackaged snack such as cheese, fruit, applesauce, pretzels, etc. will be welcomed. The school will not accept and/or deliver flowers or balloons, or commercial food to the students. Invitations to private parties including birthday parties may not be handed out at school.

Shoes for P.E.

Just a reminder that students need to wear tennis shoes on the days they have P.E. class. We would like to prevent flip-flop blow outs, boot scuffs, and scratches on the floors as well as students getting hurt. 


Derby Public School’s Latchkey program provides licensed childcare before and after school during the school year. Morning services for ALL schools are at Swaney. Cooper, Oaklawn, Derby Hills, Pleasantview, and Wineteer attend the Pleasantview site. El Paso, Park Hill, Swaney and Tanglewood attend the Swaney site. The weekly cost per child is $45 if parents use both before and after-school care. Before school care is $20 per child and after school care is $30 per child. This weekly fee is prorated ONLY when Latchkey is not in session for a full week. Fees for the first two weeks of care and a $10.00 processing fee will be collected at the time of enrollment. Students will be transported by a Derby Public Schools bus between their attendance center and Latchkey site. Transportation cost is covered in the Latchkey fees. Please call 788-8532 for more details.
