DUAL IMMERSION AT THE MIDDLE SCHOOL PLANNING MOVING FORWARD
The Dual Immersion Parent Advisory Committee (DIPAC) held its first meeting (DIAPC) on October 3rd @ SHES. The next meeting is scheduled for November 7th. At the meeting we will be sharing a mock student schedule of how the dual immersion program will transition to the middle school as well as share some of the resources and curriculum.
The goal of the DIPAC is to help ensure that parent voices are a central component of our planning as we develop our middle school dual immersion program. This committee will serve in an advisory role contributing information, conducting surveys, sharing ideas, and helping formulate a plan for the future. If you are interested in participating on the committee please contact Mrs. Maier, principal of SHES at firstname.lastname@example.org

LEAD TESTING RESULTS COMPLETED - ALL SCHOOLS MEET EPA GUIDELINES AND ARE FOUND TO BE SAFE
The safety and health of our students and staff across Alpine Union (AUSD) is one of our top priorities. With this in mind, we wanted to notify you that lead testing of our schools’ water supplies has been conducted and completed.
The drinking water at all of our schools has been found to be safe. All of our schools met the EPA guidelines for safe drinking water.
The process began on June 23, 2017 when AUSD officially requested that testing be completed at all AUSD school sites. On September 13, 2017, the Padre Dam Municipal Water District began taking water samples from each school site which included outdoor drinking fountains and indoor kitchen areas.
On October 24, 2017, Padre Dam Municipal Water District reported that the results for all of our schools were complete and that all values tested were less than the State’s 15 parts per billion (ppb), therefore requiring no further testing.
Copies of each site’s results will be posted on the District’s website on the Maintenance, Operations, and Facilities page.
