Parents,

I hope you all enjoyed your extra-long weekend. Today starts our last term of this school year—this year is flying! There are many fun events to look forward to during the last term of school: Springville Track Meets, field trips, Spring Break, sporting events, 1st-6th grade students (with less than 2 tickets) go to the pool, etc. We are excited about these events and hope they will provide some neat opportunities to keep learning and to enjoy one another.

Safety— Utah has a very powerful safety resource called the SafeUT app. The SafeUT app allows students to report tips about school safety threats, drug/alcohol abuse, bullying, and anything else. With a single tap, students can also call or chat with 24-hour crisis counselors from The University of Utah Neuropsychiatric Institute (UNI).Our goal is to make every parent and educator aware of th app and have it downloaded on their phone. For more information about the app: https://healthcare.utah.edu/uni/programs/safe-ut-smartphone-app/.

Kindergarten PRE-Registration for the 2018-2019 school year—  Pre-registration, and Registration will be done on-line this year.  The on-line window will be open from March 12th - March 22nd.  We will still need you to bring a copy of your child’s immunizations, birth certificate and proof of residency into the school.  This can be done on March 22nd from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm.  The attachment to this e-mail will walk you through the online process.  Please call the school if you have any questions or concerns 801-489-2897. You’ll be able to complete the registration process and sign the online forms on August 1, 2018.  There will also be a Kindergarten assessment that day for your child.
