Principal's Message

Welcome parents to the 2020-21 school year! 
Alta School is where Eagles SOAR!  Alta has a long standing history of achievement and continues to provide its students with a challenging and rigorous  academic program.   Partnering with parents and community, the students at Alta have proven that being Safe, taking Ownership, having a good Attitude, and being Respectful (SOAR) will lead to productive, successful lives.  Our staff is dedicated to help support each child learn in his/her own unique way and are committed to assisting all children in their academic/social needs and emotional growth. This year we challenge our students and staff to persevere and continue to SOAR to the next level.
This school year will be different than any other school year as we begin this year with Distance Education. Students will receive their instruction virtually. Teachers are developing virtual lessons to engage our students through an exceptional virtual experience. Also, new to Alta Elementary is the Dual Immersion Program. Our kindergarten students will be receiving bilingual instruction.  
Alta will continue to focus on student academics, attendance, and positive behaviors. Please feel free to visit the California School Dashboard to learn more about our school.  

As the new year begins, Alta School is once again proud to partner with Save The Children providing the After School virtual Literacy Block and Sponsorship programs, the Reedley Sunrise Kiwanis Club providing the Terrific Kids program, and the California Department of Education providing ongoing participation in the Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Program.  These are great examples of how valuable partnerships with community, state, and federal programs continue to provide support for our students.
School attendance is important for the continued growth and success of your child. We encourage all students to attend their virtual classes every day, and be ready to learn. If your child will be absent from their virtual class, please call 305-7210 or send a note to verify their absence.  Please ensure that your child attends virtual distance education daily, on time, and is prepared to learn.
The Alta staff is looking forward to another productive and great year with your students and encourage you to participate in any/all activities.  If you are able to volunteer and/or join the Alta Parent-Teacher Club, we encourage you to be active and involved in your child's education. Please stop by the office to check-in and we will be happy to assist and support you.  If you have any questions, please call the office at 305-7210. Our office is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
