I hope all of the Alpine Elementary Community had an enjoyable Spring Break. Only seven weeks of school left in a school year that none of us will ever forget! We have an 8th grade grandson in Oregon who was able to return to school on a modified schedule in February, and finally returns to full-day, five-day-a-week school on April 19. Even with the COVID-19 challenges we have faced this year. I am so grateful that at Alpine Elementary, we have had students in school since August 17!
Mask Mandate
April 10 ends the mask mandate in some locations on Utah, but not in schools. The mask mandate continues in all K-12 schools. Students, parents and staff are still expected to wear masks in schools, at least through June 15.
Maturation Classes
Fifth grade parents should have already received a communication from your student’s teacher, that we will be having our Maturation Classes, 1:30 – 2:30 pm on April 15. All parents need to have turned in a consent form if they want their students to participate in the Maturation Classes. The girls will be meeting in the gym and the boys in the library. Parents are welcome to attend if they are wearing masks. The instruction this year will be provided in a video format prepared by the health providers in the State of Utah. We will have a place for students to go if parents want their students opted out of the Maturation presentation.
Kindergarten Registration
If you didn’t register your incoming kindergartner before April 2, please come into our main office and get your student registered!
Online Attendance
Please remember that you can now excuse your student absences online. Once again, the instructions on how to excuse students online are attached.

Aloha! I write you from Maalaea on the island of Maui! Laura and I won’t be returning to Utah until April 14. We had planned to travel to Hawaii for the first time to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary in April 2020, but COVID-19 essentially shut the world down, so one year later, we have spent a wonderful Spring Break in the Hawaiian Islands. Three days in Oahu and five days in Maui. And just like all of the other fair skinned haoles, we have experienced a variety of island pleasures: hiked Diamond Head, visited the North Shore (ran into Brigham from Ms. Elder’s third grade class and his family on the grounds of the Laie Temple), went to Pearl Harbor and visited the USS Arizona Memorial, snorkeled outside our condo in a bay (coral cuts legs and fingers if you aren’t careful), went on a commercial boat for more snorkeling in beautiful clear water full of amazing sea life in the Pacific Ocean, drove the Road to Hanna and hiked to Waimoku Falls in the Haleakala National Park, and ate lots of delicious food. A Spring Break that we will never forget!
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!

Final week of school for before Spring Break and the calendar turns over to April! Hard to believe that we only have two months of school left in what has been a school year never to be forgotten.
Final Day of Reading Week and PTA Meeting
Today is the last day of our Reading Week at Alpine Elementary. We hope that there have been a lot of kids reading this past week!  We are encouraging all students to keep track of minutes read or being read to at home.
Enter your minutes, TODAY Monday, March 29, by 10 pm. It will only take seconds to enter your student’s name, teacher, and total minutes.
You can click here to record total minutes or refer to the PTA Newsletter on the Alpine Elementary website.  Be sure to add any food allergies. Alternate treats are available for those with allergies. The top ten students from each grade who have entered the highest number of minutes will receive a Crumbl cookie !
Our next PTA meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 30th at 9:15 in the staff Room at Alpine Elementary. Everyone is welcome to join us!
Battle of the Books
Our 5th grade Battle of the Books team participated at the District competition on Saturday, March 27 at AFJHS. The “We Survived the Great COVID-19” team of Adrienne Bodily, Ari Ingo, Lily Goodwin, Kyrie and Aria VanVactor (filling in for Ava Scoville) tied or won five of their six battles and were excellent representatives of Alpine Elementary! A huge thank you to our librarian Paula Ruesch, for organizing this year and every year’s, Battle of the Books. What a wonderful way to get students engaged and excited about reading.
On Saturday, Mrs. Ruesch introduced me to Keely Giles, the librarian at Vineyard Elementary. Eleven years ago, Keely brought Battle of the Books to Utah after seeing how much her sister’s children in Eugene, Oregon enjoyed BOB. As a native Oregonian, I didn’t know that BOB in Utah has its origins in my home state.
Kindergarten Registration
Kindergarten registration will continue through April 2. Please come into our office and get the necessary registration materials for any kindergartner who will be starting the 2021 – 22 school year. A child needs to be five-years-old before September 1, 2021 to be able to enroll in kindergarten.
Online Attendance
We are excited to inform parents that they can now excuse student absences online on Skyward! See the attached flyer for step-by-step instructions.

When I bike up Suncrest, as I did on Saturday morning, I always think of man I never met, but is legendary in the Utah Valley biking community. When you come to the four-way stop near the Suncrest Village Green Park, if you turn left, there is another half-mile climb up to Oak Summit Drive, the most difficult part of the Suncrest ascent. On June 17, 2011, Lloyd Guthrie, who is the father of Westfield Elementary principal, Salonna Thomas, was biking up that very steep climb on South Traverse Ridge Road, had a heart attack and passed away doing what brought him joy in life. Lloyd Guthrie was 83-years-old at the time of his passing! Having biked that very steep road many times, I stand in awe of a man who would even attempt such a feat at 83 years of age! The road bikers who know Lloyd Guthrie’s story call that portion of the ride Lloyd’s Hill, and for me, the inspiring account keeps me motivated to keep on pedaling on in all aspects of my life.
Have a wonderful Spring Break, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
