Superintendent's Message 2020-10-14

Dear families,

Happy Fall Recess! As we adjust to the issued by Utah Governor Gary Herbert yesterday, I want to take a moment to remind you about our COVID-19 visitor guidelines. These guidelines are in place whenever you or your students visit one of our campuses, including to pick up breakfast and lunch meals for students. You can find the guidelines and right .

Today’s newsletter has some important info for the coming week.

U.S. CENSUS DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 15

The U.S. Supreme Court recently issued a decision in support of halting the census count on October 15. That means TOMORROW is the last day for you to complete the 2020 Census. Remember the census is crucial to determining how much money we will receive for our schools. . The Census is 100% confidential and is available in multiple languages. After you fill it out for your household, make sure your friends and family members fill out the Census also.

COMMUNITY SURVEY FOR SUPERINTENDENT SEARCH

We are currently in the middle of a nationwide search for a new superintendent. We want to make sure we hear what’s important to YOU as we work to fill this position. ? The survey will be open until November 2, 2020. Please take a few minutes now to give us your feedback. .

STUDENT MEALS DURING FALL RECESS

Our schools may be closed tomorrow and Friday for Fall Recess, but meals for students will still be available. Our "Grab and Go” meal service provides breakfast and lunch each weekday to children, ages 0-18. This is done in a “Lunch Today, Breakfast Tomorrow” style, where students receive a sack lunch to be eaten that day and a sack breakfast, which can be refrigerated and eaten the next day.  All 22 locations will be open during Fall Recess.
