Principal’s Message – March 12, 2020

Dear OES Families,

The Alpine School District has sent out an earlier email concerning the changed schedule for this upcoming Monday and Tuesday.  We will be holding school as a minimal day on these two days (March 16th and 17th, 2020). This is the same schedule that we will have tomorrow as well.  

Kindergarten and Preschool students do not have school Friday, Monday and Tuesday.  As of now, Kindergarten and Preschool will resume regular schedule on Wednesday, March 18, 2020.  Teachers in these grades will send home school work for the students to complete on these days. Students in grades 1st – 6th will have the following schedule:

Early Birds:  8:00am – 11:30am

Later Gators: 9:15am – 12:45pm

Our lunch schedule will change to accommodate the schedule, but lunch and breakfast will be served on these days.  

The reason for this adjustment is to further train our teachers for a potential need to provide online learning for students in the event of school closures.  

We will keep you informed as the situation evolves and conditions change. As always, parents may excuse their child from school for any reason. If you are concerned about your student’s safety, please exercise your parental discretion.

Our student of the month requirement for perfect attendance will not be a requirement at this time.  

There are a lot of questions and information that continue to come in. We will be working with district administrators, and other team members to make the best of any situation that may arise.  

If you have questions on how to talk to your child(children) about this virus and the accommodations made to help stop the spread, please see the following link from the Centers of Disease Control:

Additional information and resources are available at Utah Department of Health.


Also, if you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to call the school or myself.
