Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

Thank you for being such a great group of parents and community members. As we navigate through another year, unlike any other, it is imperative and important that we support the education of our children.

I also ask that you get involved with our school. We are holding meetings online that make it so much easier for you to engage. We realize that you are busy, but we ask you to volunteer with our PTA, attend our meetings and let us know how you would like to engage!

We hope to see our PTA members, for our 1st In-Person event in a long time! Please join us at 6:30 PM on Wednesday for our 1st General PTA meeting. Masks are mandatory for all participants. Bring your positive hearts and fun thoughts as we discuss upcoming plans for this year!

Please join our PTA for just $5.00 on MyPaymentsPlus. Let's make our Alcova membership the best in the cluster! Let's do this Alcova! School Spirit for your kids matters so much!

Please continue to check our website for calendar updates and events. We look forward to building a continued partnership with you!

Thank you,

Cortina Harris

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conference week will take place the week of October 18th - 22nd. Conferences will be through Zoom or In-Person. Teachers will make arrangements based on an agreed method. On Wednesday, October 20th, there will be another county-wide Digital Learning Day for all students and on Thursday, October 21st, K-5 students will be released at 12:15 PM, so that teachers will be available to conference with parents. Please mark these dates on your calendars and if needed, make alternate child care plans for that Wednesday and Thursday, since we will not be on normal schedules those two days.
