Good Afternoon OES Families,

I hope things are going well for you at home. Our teachers are working so hard, and I know you are too. We still have Chromebooks to check out if anyone needs one. Please contact our computer specialist, Megan Carter: [email protected] and she will help you with that.

I don’t want to overwhelm anyone, but I have a few favors to ask because as of right now, we won’t be back in school until May 1st.

First of all, if you know of any students who do not have internet access or a device, will you please let me know. I know many of you have neighbors and friends who may be in this situation and I want to make sure that all of our students have access to education. We have been calling families personally, but I just want to double check to make sure we aren’t missing anyone.

Next, this is something that has never been done before – teachers teaching from home and students learning from home. It’s quite exciting! We are still on schedule for our end of year activities and our yearbook is in need of pictures. If you as parents are ok with sending some of your students working from home that could be featured in our yearbook, will you please send Maria Wood ([email protected]) pictures of your students working from home. Thank you!

Here is some information from our community. As always, please refer to the Alpine School District website for any updates. I will try and keep you updated as soon as possible.

Breakfast and lunch are still being served at the school from 8:30am – 11:00am. You can pick up both breakfast and lunch at the same time so you don’t have to make two trips. This is on the east end of the school, right outside the gym.

Our office hours are from 8:00am – 12:00pm. We had scheduled Kindergarten registration for this week. We are almost up and running to take care of everything online. We will have a link on our website and I will send out more communication as soon as possible.

Here is the newest newsletter from Hope 4 Utah.

As always, please let me know if you need anything.

This week’s wondering is:

What is your favorite thing about learning at home? Mrs. West sent out something to her class and asked them to create a hashtag about it. If you would like, please comment on our Facebook Page or respond directly to this email. I will post as many responses back as possible.

Have a great day.
