Thank You to Our OV Community!

The Olympic View PTA (OVPTA) is incredibly grateful and thankful to all of our volunteers, families, sponsors, and the Olympic View staff and administration for supporting our mission. Thank you!

LOOKING FOR ANSWERS?  The most up-to-date, official information is always found at the Seattle Public Schools website or the Olympic View Elementary website! Make sure you read your emails from Principal Bean and from SPS. Important information is coming out regularly, so stay informed!

What's New?

THANKS to everyone who helped with the Welcome Back Staff Breakfast! OV teachers and staff are off to a busy start this year, so let's make sure we show our appreciation whenever we can. Take a minute to check in with your teacher: ask how you can help or just say thanks!   

THANKS for stopping by the PTA tent on the First Day of School! It was great to meet some new families!   We'll be back on the blacktop soon for more opportunities to connect.


Bundle Up Reminder! Many classroom windows are open to provide extra ventilation and many kids are eating outside. As the weather cools off, make sure your student has enough layers so they are comfortable and ready to learn (and play) every day.

OVPTA General Meeting: Save the Date for October 19th, 6:30-7:30pm. You don't have to be a PTA member to participate, so please join us and hear what the PTA is all about, ask questions and share your thoughts about the new school year. All are welcome! The meeting will be virtual, so stay tuned for Zoom details.

COVID-19 School Safety Group

The OVPTA is sharing his information because we are committed to advocating for all students' safety. This group of parents are opening meetings to all families and seeking feedback. Here is their update:  

We are grateful that the staff at OV is working hard to keep our kids safe and healthy. We know that parents and caregivers have many questions and concerns about the protocols and safety measures. We are forming a group for families to advocate for strong COVID-19 safety guidelines at our school and to help streamline the feedback process. Right now, we are focusing on creating a safe space for children to eat lunch outdoors, but will address other issues moving forward. Our goal is to work in partnership with the school staff to help keep all children and families safe from COVID-19. Our goal is to compile feedback and suggestions from as many community members as possible to understand the views of the community as a whole. Here is how you can get involved:

  1. Attend a meeting. We will have regular meetings online where families can share concerns and suggest solutions. All are welcome. Please join even if you just want to listen and learn more about the group. Our next meeting is Monday Sept 27th at 7:00 p.m. You can join the meeting via zoom: https://qualtrics.zoom.us/j/95194076598
  2. Share your thoughts. We appreciate all the input we have been getting from families about eating outside. Please continue to provide questions, comments, and concerns in this anonymous survey. This information is shared with school leadership.  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc_n6FSYhbW0ryHj3C_Aiq0WRnXGBODXKmEqp_klQCZl6S2HA/viewform?fbclid=IwAR0hIg1ekJs4eylKTIqXniGUV0mtL6sPGqG79ixUYKVOd4YMEU_1dkLbbvg
  3. Volunteer at lunch outside. We are looking for a pool of 60 volunteers so that each person volunteers once a month. Sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c054fabab2ba0fe3-ovoutdoor
