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.
Split Schedule – We are welcoming all Alta students back to school today! We are still on a 4-day, in person school week with a short review activity for students to complete at home on Fridays. Therefore, we will not have a late-start day on Tuesdays. Due to a need to distance with all students in the building again, we will also need to return to the 3-lunch bell schedule. You can view a copy of the adjusted bell schedule on page 5.
Online Learning – Even though all students are returning to school, we know that some will still need to learn from home from time to time due to sickness or quarantine. When learning from home, students can keep up with their classes on Canvas following the guidelines sent out last week. They can expect 40-90 minutes of work per class in one of the following formats: flipped, blended or synchronous.
Math Tutoring – Please view the schedule on page 6 for math tutoring opportunities. Both in person and virtual opportunities are available.
The Utah Promise Scholarship Program fills the gap to cover tuition for any student who receives the Pell Grant but still owes tuition.

Picture Day – The final make up picture day will be held on Tuesday, October 20th. Pictures will start at 7am and continue until all pictures are completed. Approximate completion time will be around noon. If you are an online student and need your picture taken, you may come at any time.
AP Students and Parents – The window is now open to register and pay for the 2021 AP exams. This is a TWO STEP process and both steps must be completed prior to November 1st to avoid paying additional exam fees. All the information you need, including a registration tutorial, is available on our Counseling website: https://altahscounseling.weebly.com/ap.html. Please contact Alta’s AP Coordinator, Shannon Kershaw (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional assistance.
Free Meals to Fuel Friday Learning – Fridays will be a day for at-home learning for students, and CSD’s Nutrition Services Professionals will make sure they are properly fueled for a full day of study. On Thursdays, our lunchroom will double the number of meals we normally prepare, adding an extra sack meal for students to take home and enjoy on Friday. The sack meals will be made available free of charge for as long as federal grant funding remains in place. Efforts will be made to distribute the meals at the end of the school day so they can be quickly refrigerated. This is important, as the sack meals will contain perishable items. Nutrition information for the meals can be found at CSD’s online lunch menu.
Hawk Stash – The Hawk Stash is up and running! Students can visit it every Thursday after school or see their counselor for a private visitation. You can also help us keep the Hawk Stash stocked with your donations. See page 7 for more details.
Hawk Talk – Alta’s new social worker, Crystal Gregory, is starting an emotional health group called Hawk Talk! For more information about her and the group, please view the information on page 8.
Ordering Transcripts – Transcripts can be ordered online by going to the Alta website or clicking on this link: https://www.parchment.com/u/registration/24401/account. See instructions on the flyer on pages 9 and 10.
Girls Basketball – Girls interested in participating on the Basketball team for the upcoming season must attend a meeting on Tues, Oct 20 or Wed, Oct 21 after school in the gym. Information will be given during that time for tryouts, registermyathlete.com and grades from 1st quarter.
