Alta High School
Soar to a New ALTAtude
We are an inclusive learning community with a tradition of inspiring, supporting, and collaborating with students as they prepare to be engaged citizens in their pursuit of continuous success.
Back to School – We are welcoming all Alta students back to school today! We are looking forward to seeing our students again, and we have plans in place to help keep everyone safe. To aid us in this, please support your student in following these expectations on each school day:
Complete a symptom check before leaving the house; stay home if you are sick.
Bring and wear a face mask, following the CDC Guidelines for correctly wearing masks.
Arrive to school at the first bell and go directly to class. Or, go to the commons or a classroom if you must come to school early.
Bring a fully-charged device to utilize in classes (Chromebook, laptop, tablet, iPad, etc.).
Follow directional arrows in the hallways and all safety procedures in each classroom.
Assist teachers in sanitizing your learning space at the start of each class.
Vacate the school grounds immediately after school or report directly to a school-sponsored after school event.
