Eagles are Kind, Responsible, and Respectful
Mr. Thomas Bivens » Welcome!


I love being around the learning environment of an elementary school!  There is unlimited enthusiasm and constant outbursts of discovery.  
Our job at Alta Sierra is to support all levels of learners and provide multiple avenues to academic success.  
I am committed to making your child feel safe, cared for and supported.  I expect them to stumble and do silly things but I also expect them to learn from their mistakes and become thoughtful, kind young people.

Distance Learning Packets - distribution schedule

March 23, 2020

Hello parents.  I sure hope this message finds your families healthy and peaceful.   

Distance learning packets are ready and will be made available for pick up on Wednesday, March 25, 2020.  The schedule is below.  

The times are set alphabetically by last name.  You may pick up packets for family or friends. Just be sure that you drop it off for them!  We need you to initial for all packets picked up. We need to know that all families had access. 

Pickup times have been coordinated with Magnolia so you can hit both sites during the assigned hour.  Don’t worry if you are a little late, or early.  

If the weather is cooperative, staff will be handing out the packets curbside in the bus loading zone and you won’t have to get out of your car.  

If the weather is stormy, we will distribute in the MPR.  To maintain social distance, the number of people in the MPR will have to be kept to 10 or less.  Please park and wait until a staff member waves you up.

There are on-line resources available for enrichment, extra practice or to allow for exploration of topics.  You can find them all on our website home page at under the “students” tab.
