Please read this update on Alton R-IV protocols based on the latest guidance concerning COVID-19 and the public school setting: https://www.alton.k12.mo.us/article/287060?org=alton-r-iv
Kindergarten and Preschool Orientation will be held on Monday, March 15th from 5:00 to 6:30 in the Multipurpose Building at Alton Elementary School. Any child who will turn 5 before August 1st is eligible for kindergarten. Any child who will turn 3 before August 1st is eligible for preschool. Please bring your child's shot records, birth certificate, and proof of residency (piece of mail) with you to the orientation. In order to maintain social distancing, we ask that only one parent attends orientation. Students do not need to attend. Masks are required. Screening will be held on March 17th from 8:30-3:00. Parents will be asked to choose a screening time at orientation. If your child is currently attending preschool at Alton, screening will be done at school so a screening time will not be necessary. However, current preschool parents should still plan to attend orientation on March 15th. If you have any questions, please call Melinda Langston, Principal, or Tonya Willard, School Counselor, at 417-778-7217.

Tonya As schools wrap up their week celebrating school counselor week, we can’t help but save the best for last. Alton Elementary feels extra blessed, not just this week but Every. Single. Day. Everyone deserves to have a Mrs. Willard in their life. Not only does she go above and beyond for our students in all areas of their life, she also goes above and beyond to support and love our staff and the parents\guardians of our students. She is a counselor, a friend, an advocate, a cook, a cheerleader, a life coach, supplier of needs and that’s just a short list of what she does for others. She is also a wife and mother to three precious children and we are blessed they share her with us. Mrs Willard, THANK YOU for loving our school community without end. You make our world a better place and we could not be more proud to call you a part of our Comet family.
Elementary basketball pictures will be next Tuesday, Feb. 9th. This is for both boys and girls, unless your child’s coach has told you otherwise. Please have your child wear his or her jersey.
