The Alpine Elementary staff thought the April 22 parade through Alpine neighborhoods was a great success. As we all deal with a Groundhog Day Mentality of all the days seeming to be a repeat of the previous day, the parade was a nice change of pace and lifted the spirits of our staff in multiple ways. Thank you to the students and parents who cheered us on as we drove the parade route!
I am attaching a letter that all parents should have received last week from the Alpine School District informing you of important end-school-year dates.

I continue to deal with the after-effects of my April 20 bike accident. The road rash which covers all of my appendages heals with each passing day. The post concussive issues are my biggest challenges now. I still have blurred vision, headaches, drowsiness, and a general sense of a pervading brain fog encompassing me. Thank you for all of the well wishes. I hope to emerge from my current state of being in the coming days. Though I have no memory of my accident a week ago, one of our former parents posted the following on Facebook last Monday night:
Tonight, we went up American Fork Canyon to pick up garbage at Tibble Fork. On the way up we came around a corner and found a biker that had crashed. He was face down in the middle of the road. He was barely breathing and not responsive when I got up to him, thankfully an off-duty officer was behind me and she jumped in and took charge, pretty sure she kept him alive.  She was calm, kept him still and awake. I have a whole new appreciation for cops and paramedics, that was the longest 15 minutes of my life waiting for the ambulance. All the training I have learned got lost, I just wanted to cry the whole time.  Fingers crossed the man has a full recovery.
Please don’t be alarmed by this post, I feel very fortunate to have only spent one night in the hospital and the mental fog caused by the concussion dissipates more and more with each passing day. I will be back in the saddle soon!
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
