Principal's Message

Happy Friday Alcova Family!

It is hard to believe we are wrapping up our first full week of school! The students are SOARing in the hallways and bringing so much sunshine back into the building.

Thank you for your support and patience as we maneuver our extended car rider lane and bus driver shortage. It is truly taking an Alcova Falcon Team Effort to get all of our students home safely. Most importantly, our students are happy and teachers are rocking this first couple of days of school!

Have a fantastic weekend and don't forget to mark your calendars with some upcoming events.
