Be a Bucket Filler

We are pleased to announce that our Bucket Filler Program is up and going! Last week our Alta Sierra Student Council students did an amazing job giving their Bucket Filler presentations to the younger grades! They presented each class with a bucket and discussed the importance of filling up each others buckets with kind words, helping each other, showing respect to each other, and all the other wonderful ways we can treat each other with kindness. Each class received tickets that students fill out to recognize each other and teachers will read these to the class on occasion. Way to go Eagles!

School Closed Wed, Jan 11; Will Re-Open Thursday, Jan 12

After the torrential downpours of the past few days, the mudslides, downed trees, electricity outages, and flooding made it unsafe for many of our students to come to school on Wednesday (via bus or traditional means).

After touring the district's boundaries mid-morning on Wednesday, we have determined that we will be safe to resume school at all three sites on Thursday. While we recognize that many families are still without power, the school sites' electricity has been unharmed and the sites are safe for students to return.
