Principal Message – July 16, 2021

By Principal's Message

Good Afternoon OES Families,

The new school year is about to begin and I thought I would remind everyone about our new schedule for next year.  

On May 24th, 2021 Alpine School District sent an email to all employees and parents explaining the Return to Learn plan for the 2021-2022 school year.  In case you missed it, here is a link with all of the details:

In summary, Orem Elementary will have a common start and end time, 5 days a week. There will be no early out days. School will begin at 9:15am and dismiss at 3:30pm each day. We are currently finalizing a plan for pickup/drop off, more detailed information will be sent out closer to the beginning of school.

The first day of school is Tuesday, August 17, 2021. Our Back to School night will be on Monday, August 16, 2021 from 4:00pm – 6:00pm. 

We are happy to be able to offer Ballroom for next year. The following is a message from our Ballroom director and attachment with more information.  

Start your morning dancing!  We are excited to be offering our award winning ballroom program again this year.  5th and 6th graders will be meeting on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 8am. There will also be an introduction to ballroom class for 3-4th graders on Wednesday mornings at 8am.  Registration forms are attached to this email. Please note that class sizes are limited and priority is given first come first serve. 

If your child wants to give ballroom a try before making a decision they are welcome to come to the first two weeks of class starting August 24th/25th.  Tuition will be due and class lists finalized by September 10.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Our Ballroom classes will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 5th and 6th graders from 8:00am – 9:00am.  Classes for 3rd and 4th grade students will be held on Wednesdays from 8:00am – 9:00am.  A few scholarships are available from the school for students who wish to participate, but have financial concerns. 


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Enjoy the remainder of your summer.  


Best Regards,
