Principal's Message

Good morning Parents and Guardians of Mesa Alta Students,
Here are a few checklist items that you need to know:
*This week is Parent/Teacher Conferences- please make sure that you contact your child's teachers to schedule a phone call or google meet. 
*We will not have school on Friday February 12th (district PT conference day) and on Monday February 15th (Presidents Day).
*We will start hybrid (last names A-K) on Tuesday February 16th.  (Pending Board Approval)
*Th/F will start hybrid for last names L-Z 
***Make sure that you and your child check the student email and student google classroom for updates and communication***
PENDING BOARD APPROVAL
Here are some of the items your student will need to bring to school:
1)Backpack
2)Water Bottle/Healthy Snack
3)Chromebook 
4)Writing Utensil
5)Notebook/Paper
6)CDC Approved Masks (no gators, no vents, no scarfs/bandanas); must be 2-ply)
7) Math and Science Workbooks ($10 to replace lost workbooks)
Here is how Mesa Alta will operate in the different learning capacities:
Hybrid: Students will attend school according to their last name. We will utilize the block schedule to minimize transitions and maximize learning. Odd classes will be on M/Th; Even classes will be on T/F. Our primary focus will be on the students in the building. School doors will open at 8:00am; class will start at 8:25am; school will end at 3:40pm.
Online: Students that are online will no longer have a set schedule. It will be their responsibility to look for and engage with recorded lessons. Their teacher will inform them of the lesson posts, expectations, and meeting times. The teachers will also utilize a portion of their prep time, as well as office hours on Wednesdays, to assist our online student population. Some teachers will go live- that communication will occur between the students and the teacher. 
Paper-Based: This will remain the same; attendance is based on completed work that is turned in and picked up on Friday's. 
Students who do not follow CDC/DOH guidelines will be removed from the hybrid setting and placed online.
