Alpine Union School District Announces CLOSURE of ALL SCHOOLS for COVID-19 Spread Prevention March 16 – April 14, 2020

March 13, 2020 – Hello Alpine Union Staff and Families,

Although there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Alpine Union, out of an abundance of caution, and in consultation with the California Public Health Officials,  Alpine Union School District will close all schools in a statewide effort to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). School will remain open today with normal dismissal procedures.  Schools will be closed beginning Monday, March 16th with plans to reopen beginning Tuesday, April 14th.  Our District and school leaders have been preparing for potential school closures.  We will be following up with more information including educational resources we will make available to our families and students.

 

Another update submitted on the same day:

Hello Alpine Union Families,

Earlier today, we sent a letter sharing that schools will be closed beginning Monday, March 16th with plans to reopen beginning Tuesday, April 14th. This decision was made in consultation with the San Diego County Office of Education, California Public Health Officials, and with the superintendents of all of our San Diego County School Districts. While there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Alpine Union, schools were closed out of an abundance of caution in a statewide effort to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

On Monday, March 16th, District staff will be at Boulder Oaks Elementary School between 11:00 am and 1:00 pm. We will have a simple drive-up system to check out Chromebooks to any Alpine Union student who does not have technology at home during this closure. Parents must accompany their children to check out a Chromebook. Curriculum packets for all grades will be available for pick up. These will also be available in digital format on our website. We also will be providing lunches and a take-home breakfast for the next day for students. Additional information related to food services and serving locations for students during this closure will be forthcoming.

We know school closure brings on challenges for our families. We are committed to staying in touch often and being responsive to the needs of our students and families. More information will be forthcoming.

London Stage Star Dean Chisnall Returns to Advise Steele Canyon High School Theater Students

London stage actor, Dean Chisnall, returns to Steele Canyon Charter High School February 26 to 29, 2020 to help prepare the school’s theatre department for their production of Shrek The Musical premiering March 18th.  Who better to mentor the students than an actor who portrayed Shrek for five years on the London West End stage and on the UK & Ireland tour?

Last year, as London West End’s Jean Valjean in Les Misérables, Mr. Chisnall accepted SCHS Music Director Luck’s invitation to come to America and meet the students of the Steele Canyon Players and Instrumental Music Department so that he might offer them advice and tutelage as they readied for their 2019 production of Les Misérables. That visit was a mutually beneficial experience as Chisnall stated, “The students of Steele Canyon High have had a lasting impression on my life and I feel so incredibly fortunate to have visited. The work that Heather Luck and Nicole LaBella do is nothing short of phenomenal and I thank all involved for giving me the greatest gift and allowing me to share some time with so many inspirational people who are the future of the industry that I very fortunately find myself in”. Putting his advice to work, the Steele Canyon Players had a successful sold-out run of their 2019 Les Misérables production and received the 2019 “Outstanding Ensemble” National Youth Arts Award San Diego/La Mesa. The students anxiously await Chisnall’s return to work with him again.

Dean Chisnall is originally from Lancashire, England, and a 2005 graduate from The Arts Educational School of Musical Theatre in London. Beyond his tenure as Shrek and in addition to his current lead role as Jean Valjean in the UK & Ireland Les Misérables tour, he most recently appeared as Jean Valjean in London West End’s Les Misérables at the Queen’s Theatre. Other West End and international theater credits include The Woman In White, Never Forget, Blood Brothers, Mama Mia!, Evita, Cinderella and La Cage aux Folles. Also, he has a variety of television, recording and concert credits to his name.

The Steele Canyon Players are rising stars in the local high school theater scene.  Under Theatre Director, Nicole LaBella and Musical Director, Heather Luck, students in the Steele Canyon High School Theatre and Instrumental Music departments produce an annual Fall play and an annual Spring Musical. The Spring production of The Sound of Music was named the Best High School Musical at the 2018 Broadway San Diego Awards after the first year of entering the competition that celebrates excellence in high school musical theatre.

Steele Canyon Charter High School is a California charter high school located near the eastern San Diego County communities of Jamul, Rancho San Diego, and Spring Valley.  Opened in 2000 and chartered in July 2007, the school serves students in grades 9 through 12.

The Steele Canyon Players & Orchestra Presents “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” – December 11-15, 2019

Our theatre director, Nicole LaBella, is an Alpine resident and several SCHS students from Alpine have lead roles!

The Steele Canyon High School Drama Department and Instrumental Music Department announce their production of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Show dates are Wednesday through Saturday, December 11, 12, 13 & 14, 2019 at 7pm with a matinee performance on Sunday, December 15, 2019 at 2pm.  All performances are in the Steele Canyon High School Theatre, 12440 Campo Road, Spring Valley. Tickets for all performances are $10 each and may be purchased in advance online at http://www.showtix4u.com or for $15 at the box office on the day of performances.

As one of Shakespeare’s most popular romantic comedies, this play interweaves reality and magic, love and hate, chaos and order. Three distinct worlds are the focus: The Athenians, The Fairies and The Players. Chaos and comedy ensue when they all cross paths. This play has it all: angry parents, rebellious teens, eloping young lovers, unrequited love, a natural world asunder, mischievous fairies, magical potions, mistaken identities, struggling young actors, wedding revelries, and an ass. Contrary to Shakespeare’s original, this production takes place during modern times in the Mediterranean region. The addition of ethereal dances and orchestral accompaniment augment this “dream-like” play.

 

About the Steele Canyon Players & Instrumental Music Department –

Under Theatre Director, Nicole La Bella and Musical Director, Heather Luck, students in the Steele Canyon High School drama and music departments produce an annual fall semester play and an annual spring semester musical. The 2019 spring production of Les Misérables School Edition was awarded “Outstanding Ensemble” by the National Youth Arts Awards San Diego/La Mesa Chapter and the 2018 spring production of The Sound of Music was named the Best High School Musical at the 2018 Broadway San Diego Awards after the first year of entering the competition that celebrates excellence in high school musical theatre.
