Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!
At this time it is not exactly clear what the 2020-2021 school year will look like next year. With all the uncertainty, we will be planning for a few different options this summer and striving to administer the best education possible regardless of the circumstances. We will do our best to provide a great experience while following the recommendations of the MN Department of Health.
We do know that I, Nathan Hanson, will be the new dean of students and math interventionist at Pleasantview. I look forward to working and building relationships with the students and staff at Pleasantview Elementary. I have been teaching math at the high school for the past 12 years before taking on this position. Because of the planned construction for the summer of 2021, we will be starting school a little earlier than normal next fall. Pleasantview will host entrance conferences on Monday August 24th form 7:30 am to 3:30 pm. There will be a letter coming home later this summer with more details. Students should attend the conference with their parents to meet their teacher and bring their school supplies. There will not be school on Monday August 24th.
I am optimistic that school will be able to look a little closer to normal again next fall. However, no matter what the 2020-2021 school year looks like, I am excited about the upcoming school year and look forward to getting to know the students and staff at Pleasantview.
