Cell Phones Cell Phones  

Cell phones have become ubiquitous even among elementary school students. At Alpenglow, students are welcome to bring their cell phones. The phones must be turned off upon entering the building at 8:50 AM and may not be turned on until exiting the building at 3:30 PM. The exception will be when a teacher gives permission to use the phone as a learning device in the classroom. Students must refrain from texting or engaging in personal business during any learning activity permitting the use of personal devices.

 

 

Lost and Found 

Alpenglow maintains a lost and found area at the playground entrance.  Parents and students are encouraged to check this area frequently for items that may belong to them.  Alpenglow does attempt to repatriate items that have names on them.  Parents are encouraged to not only write the students name on items but the classroom teacher's name as well.  Items that remain uncollected at the end of each quarter will be donated to charity.

 

Visitors 

Alpenglow welcomes visitors and volunteers.  If you are visiting ths school please be sure to come to the office first to check in and receive a visitors badge.  You may be asked to present ID.  Please wear the badge prominently as you move through the building.  Should you have any concerns during your stay, please notify a teacher or the principal.

Ensuring Optimum Learning Environments

Even the most innocent of interruptions can have significant impacts on student learning throughout the day. In order to minimize the impact of interruptions to the critical flow and function of the classroom we ask the following:

  • If you are picking up students or dropping items off for students please stop at the office. We can often help coordinate so that the classroom is not impacted.
  • If you are visiting, please be sure to wear your visitor's badge prominently. This helps staff members know that you have checked in at the office.
  • Please be sure to contact the teacher ahead of time if you would like to visit, assist or observe in the classroom.
  • While in the classroom areas, please keep cell phones silenced and conversations in the hallway to a minimum.
  • Remember that teachers place a premium on the limited time they have to plan quality lessons and activities. We encourage parents to conference with teachers as needed and whenever they have concerns. Please do keep in mind that the best result is achieved for everyone when the conference is pre-arranged.
