Superintendent's Message

Dear SLCSD Parents and Community,

It’s hard to believe that by this time next week Salt Lake City School District students will be in school. I imagine that many students are eagerly anticipating Monday, August 22, because they are ready to see their friends and meet their new teachers. The new school year can be for an exciting time for students, whether they are just beginning their learning journey as kindergartners or are concluding their tenure and plan to graduate next June. With just a few days left before the first bell rings, it’s time to take care of all of those last-minute items.

For parents, the new school year brings a lot of questions. How do I find out what bus my child will ride? When will I meet my child’s teacher? What is the dress code for school this year? When is Back to School night? We know that the beginning of the school year can be stressful for families. Please visit the SLCSD website or your child’s school website to obtain answers to many of your questions.  School are open and ready to answer your questions if you stop by or call.Everyone at SLCSD wants all students and families to feel welcomed.

I also want to remind parents that if you are new to SLCSD and you have not yet registered your child for school, I encourage you to do so very soon. Contact your child’s school and determine how you register your child. We want all children registered and ready to start school on August 22.

SLCSD parents, thank you for trusting us with your children.  This is a responsibility we take very seriously, and we will diligently work to help your children succeed. We are partners in this journey of education and want you to know we appreciate your continued support. Please know that we welcome your emails, calls, and questions. We want to see you involved in the school and in your child’s educational career. Our schools are open to you as well as your children.

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! It’s going to be a great year in SLCSD!

Yours in education,
Lexi Cunningham, Ed.D.
