JMMS ENGINEERING TEAM HEADING TO THE NATIONALS!
This weekend the JMMS engineering team, Pickled Blueberry Licorice, competed in the Southern California Lego Championships. Out of 500 teams, Pickled Blueberry Licorice, finished tied for 2nd place. The team will now move on to the Long Beach invitational in May and compete against 80 teams from around the world. The project they designed would help save enough energy to power 22,000 homes in San Diego. All of JMMS will be celebrating our engineering team this afternoon on the lawn! Go JMMS engineering! You rock!
Our award-winning JMMS #engineering team is competing this weekend. Check out this video for an excellent overview on the team and some of their successes.
We know all of Alpine will be rooting for the engineering team during the Southern California FIRST LEGO League Championships! Stay tuned for updates!

We are please to announce the launch of the Alpine Union Academy, a free after-school tutoring and enrichment program for Alpine Union students. In grades TK-2nd grade, our focus will center around early literacy, while grades 3rd and above will focus on supporting math. To support our students in our dual language program, tutoring will also be available in both English and Spanish. Tutoring will be available Monday - Thursday from 3:00 - 6:00 PM.
We anticipate the Alpine Union Academy starting in November.
To gauge your interest, please fill out the survey link below by Monday, October 31st, if you would like your child to participate.
Huge thanks to our Board members, parents, students, teachers, staff, administrators, community, and business leaders for being part of the AUSD Design Team. Last night the team launched our work to create a Portrait of an AUSD Learner. Over the next five months, the team will be working to define our expectations for learners that will be reflective of the learning and career changes our students will face in the fast-paced, interconnected world in which we live.
Our wonderful student body and student board members developed the storyline for our next Around Alpine Union Video. We filmed the video today and look forward to sharing it soon!
New fencing has begun being installed behind SHES, CELC and MVLA today. We will continue to make safety our top priority!
AUSD Safety and Security Update
In an effort to provide all the information we have, I wanted to relay that the Deputies were unable to locate any evidence of gunfire. In addition, it has been posted online that the Sheriff's Department arrested someone in relation to this event. That is not accurate. The Sheriff's Department asked me to relay that they arrested someone close by for a completely unrelated incident. Again, thank you for your support.
The Sheriff’s department has secured the campus and released both schools from lockdown. The Sheriff’s department will be on campus. Parents wishing to pick up their child will be greeted at the gate and will not be allowed to enter the campus. Parents will follow our process for picking up students.
We are staying in close contact with Sheriff's department. Helicopter is sweeping the area. Principals are in communication with teachers and staff. We will continue to keep you updated.
Sheriff's are on site investigating. We will continue to keep you updated. Please do not come to the campus. The campus is secure and in lockdown.
