Welcome to LFPA Alta Mesa.

Visit us on Facebook:

We are all extremely excited about our first day of school. We realize it is not taking place the way any of us anticipated, but we are still going to do everything possible to still make it the best day possible for everyone. Let’s focus on keeping positive thoughts that we will all be physically together at school again soon.

We ask that parents/guardians help your child keep the schedule as normal as possible. You can accomplish this by having your student get up, get dressed, nourish the tummy with a healthy breakfast, and share some positive morning encouragement just as we all would any other school day.

We would love if you would share some first day pictures with us. Snap a first day picture and e-mail it to me at We would love to make a first day collage full of optimistic faces that will provide us some positive energy as we navigate our new way of learning.

Here are some tips to make sure your child has a great first day:

  • Make sure you know the schedule for the week.

  • Make sure your child has a quiet place to work, free of distractions.

  • Make sure your child attends the live learning meetings on the schedule each day.

  • Make sure you are familiar with logging into Google Classroom and MobyMax where
    learning begins. Scroll down in “School Story” for a great parent guide.

Check all communication from your teacher and if you don’t receive communication, email or call the teacher.

Make sure your child is aware of Zoom and conducts himself/herself with an appropriate background. Ensure your student is familiar with showing his/her picture and when to mute and not to mute. Both staff and students should be in Zoom with the same mindset: They are sitting in a classroom together.

Please just take this new way of learning one day, on step at a time. Stay connected to friends and LFPA staff when you are struggling. If you need anything, don’t hesitate to reach out to myself or Mrs. Rutledge 480-807-1100. You can also send us Dojo messages if that works better for you.

We are excited for a great year and are here to serve YOU!

At LFPA…we matter! Every person, every day ❣️
