This Week’s Schedule
To enable parents with more than one child at Alpine Elementary to participate in all of the events in the final days of school, we have adjusted the schedule for Wednesday, May 26.
9:15 – 9:45 Awards Assembly, Parents having students recognized at the Awards Assembly were notified via email on Friday, May 21.
9:50 – 10:25 Sixth Grade Pillow Concert
10:30 – 11:30 Kindergarten Graduation
Students will be dismissed at 10:35 pm on the final day of school, May 27. We invite parents to attend our Flag Ceremony at 10:15 am in front of the school at the flag pole.
School Schedule 2021 – 2022
For the upcoming school year, students at Alpine Elementary will be on a 9:15 am – 3:30 pm daily schedule. We are excited to recapture the hour of lost instructional time that was lost this year. There will be no day of the week that has an early release. All elementary schools in the Alpine School District will be on a 9:15 am – 3:30 pm or 8:00 am – 2:15 schedule. There will no longer be two-track schools (i.e. Westfield and Ridgeline) where students come to school as an Early Bird or Later Gator. All elementary students will be on one of the two schedules mentioned above. District wide bus route considerations were used to determine which schools had the 8:00 am or 9:15 am start time. This afternoon, parents will receive an email from the Alpine School District informing them of the schedules of all of the elementary schools.
We are excited to be able to celebrate the end of this year with a Spring Carnival here at Alpine Elementary. The Carnival will be TODAY May 24th, from 4:00-7:00pm. There will be carnival games, a rock wall, and food trucks. We have Cupbop, a Taco Truck, Barbecue, and a Churro Truck. Our school PTA will be getting 10% of all proceeds. Please come and bring your whole family!
We need a few more volunteers to help setup tables and chairs from 2:30-3:00pm, and clean up following the carnival at 7:00-7:30pm. If you are able to help it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
We are excited to introduce the new PTA Board for the year of 2021-2022!

End of Mask Mandate May 24
As we enter the final week of school, we remind parents that masks for students, parents and staff are encouraged but no longer required. Masks are optional the final four days of school!
Lost and Found
Please encourage your students to check our Lost and Found, or parents can come to the school and reclaim any Lost and Found items. You can see from the attached photos that we have gathered lots of items that need to return to their original home.
Beginning on June 7, our incredible Library Aide, Janece Thompson, will be opening the library for students on Mondays (except July 12), 9:30 – 11:30 am. Thank you, Janece!
Outside the Principal’s Office
As we enter the last week of the 2020 – 2021 school year, I am so grateful that we have been able to have a full school year as we all dealt with the effects of a worldwide pandemic. On August 17, when we started the school year, how many of you thought we would have a school year with no closures? We all have family and friends in other states who have not been able to send their children to school for the entire school year.
As the principal at Alpine Elementary, I am humbled and grateful for the trust and confidence that parents have had to send their most prized possessions, their children, to school as an unpredictable and emotionally charged pandemic raged across the world.
Not once, did a member of the Alpine Elementary staff member come to me this school year and say, “This isn’t right. How can we be expected to work and do our job in these conditions?” We are grateful that the dedicated and resilient faculty at Alpine Elementary came to work since August 17, understanding that a personal vaccination of love and nurturing and providing as normal of a school experience as possible for children, would help our students to feel safe and protected in uncertain times. Thank you, Alpine Elementary Community for making this a successful school year!
Have a safe and enjoyable Summer Break, and as always, remember that it is a great day to be an Eagle!
Dave Perdue, Principal
Alpine School District
