Alpine Elementary News
With only a high of 28 degrees forecast for today, our students will be eating lunch in the gym/cafeteria and not outside. We will still be sending students outside for morning and lunch recesses. We only keep students inside for recess when the temperature is below 20 degrees. So be sure you send your students to school with warm clothing.
Students can dress up in Halloween costumes on Friday, October 30, but because of COVID-19 health restrictions, there will not be a parent parade at the school. We are working on the technology issues to allow us to give parents an online video feed of students dressed up in their costumes. I will be sending out more details later this week. Please remember to not send students to school with costumes that include a mask or fake weapon.
We appreciate all that our PTA did to stage a successful Red Ribbon Week last week! Red Ribbon Week focuses on lessons to teach our students how to say no to drugs and alcohol.
White Ribbon Week, our focus on keeping students safe on the internet and social media, will be February 16 – 19. Collin Kartchner who has spoken to thousands of students and parents in Utah and across the country about how to be safer while using social media, tragically passed away at his home last week at the far too young age of 40-years old.

Outside the Principal’s Office
A dusting of snow on the ground on Sunday morning was a pretty clear message from Mother Nature that autumn will soon transition to winter. The cooler temperatures meant far fewer people out on the Murdock Trail and Highland Boulevard as I biked up to Suncrest on Saturday.
Have a great week, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
Dave Perdue, Principal
