Welcome to the new school year. We have a great year ahead! We will continue to have many of the same activities you are used to seeing at Mountain Trails, as well as a few new ones. We look forward to getting to know all our students and parents better so please feel welcome, and be a part of our school and it’s culture.
This year at Mountain Trails we will continue to emphasize Covey’s Seven Habits. Your teachers, staff and I expect you to follow them. We are a team and as such we will be working together to help you follow and learn these guidelines. They were developed to not only help you have a better time at school, but in life; practice them and expect to have your lives enriched.
This year due to a few changes in state law the district has asked that we have parents go to Skyward and register their students and fill out the district’s Acceptable Use Policy for computers and the Directory information. If you would go to https://skyward.alpinedistrict.org/scripts/wsisa.dll/WService=wsEAplus/seplog01 and log in as the parent and fill out the information there it will be greatly appreciated. This is extremely important this year because every household must complete the new “Computer and Internet Permission Form” for each student. Previous forms are no longer valid. For your student to access any use of technology at Mountain Trails, he or she will need this form completed online. There are several other information items to complete. Please take some time to do this. There is a district tutorial below.
We ask that whenever possible, you schedule your students’ appointments and vacations outside of the school schedule. We believe that when students are missing school, they miss opportunities that are only available inside of the classroom. If you have any concerns feel free to contact me ([email protected]). As a school we welcome your input and look forward to working with you this year. We appreciate the immense level of trust you have in us and our school. We feel lucky to have you as part of our team.
