WEEKLY UPDATES

Weekly Update Sent 7/22/2020

Good afternoon,

The School Board has approved a new first day of school which will be September 8th. We understand there are many questions about what the 20-21 school year will look like. Please know the School Board and district leadership are working hard to devise plans that will be the best for students, teachers, and parents. We will have more information soon and promise to pass it along to you when we get it. 

One thing that will help us is to get your registration done early. Students who are returning, as well as new students, need to complete registration every year. Instructions were sent out yesterday via email. If you did not receive the instructions please contact the office by either phone (801-481-4947) or email (amanda.johnson@slcschools.org). As a reminder, all registration processes will be completed online. YOU WILL NOT COME TO THE SCHOOL. 

Please continue to send your questions and concerns (pam.pedersen@slcschools.org) and we will try to get you answers as soon as possible. We hope you have a great day and a wonderful holiday weekend.
