Good Afternoon OES Families,
Here are the latest updates from the Alpine School District;
Beginning Monday, we will be serving breakfast and lunch from 8:30am – 11:00am. You may pick up your child’s breakfast AND lunch at the same time if you wish. If you have children that attend other schools, (Jr. High and High School), they may also pick up their lunch at Orem Elementary.
Our office hours beginning next Monday will be from 8:00am – 12:00pm. If your family is in need of a device, please call the office to make arrangements to check one out.
Some students are having trouble accessing the internet and/or sites. Our technology department is working with the state to take care of the issue. Because of this issue, students are not required to complete assignments this week since they may not be able to access the necessary tools. If your child has completed assignments, that is great! We are aware that some families may have some difficulties.
Families and students may complete a technology support help form. From alpineschools.org/onlinelearning, look for the banner on the bottom of each school website with a link to this information. We are changing it from “Online Learning Info” to “Technology Help.” If the issue is a problem with a document or resource in Canvas or Google Classroom, we will have the innovative coaches work with teachers. Additional helps for parents:
If you have any questions regarding school work, please contact your child’s teacher via email.
I know that everything combined can seem overwhelming. Please take the time to take care of yourself and your family first. Do what you can and remember that it’s ok to take some time and breathe.
Our teachers are working endlessly on preparing lessons for your children. I am also learning. I have created my first video that I am sending to students and families. It’s obviously not professional, but if we are expecting our teachers and students to stretch and learn new things, I am expecting that of myself too!
While we are off campus and learning remotely I am starting a new activity. It is called “Weekly Wonderings”. This will begin next week with a video, a question and an answer that will follow up at the end of the week. Feel free to have your child(children) email me with their wonderings and maybe their “Wonder” will be featured.
Have a great afternoon!
