Durante la última semana, hemos pasado tiempo con ustedes en nuestra Gira de Escucha sobre el tema de Inicio Tarde en nuestras escuelas secundarias. Hemos escuchado sus inquietudes y pensamientos sobre el inicio tarde y les agradecemos a cada uno que tomó el tiempo para asistir, a nuestro personal que organizó las reuniones, y a todos los que han compartido sus pensamientos...
Over the last week, we have spent time with you on our Late Start listening tour, hearing your concerns and thoughts on late start in our high schools. We are grateful to each of you who took time to attend, to our staff members who helped organize and execute, and to all who have shared their thoughts with us via email or in person.
As we approach winter and the stormy conditions that come with it, Salt Lake City School District schools will be open on all regularly scheduled school days unless circumstances create health or safety issues. We fully expect our schools to be open and functioning normally throughout the winter, but weather conditions can vary greatly in different areas of the city.
Winter is temperature inversion season in the Salt Lake Valley. Accordingly, the Salt Lake City School District Board of Education recognizes the effects of poor air quality on students’ health and therefore requires that SLCSD schools follow the Utah Department of Health’s Recess Guidance for Schools.
In an effort to promote our students’ social, emotional, and academic learning, the Salt Lake City Board of Education has made Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) a priority. But what is SEL? And, more importantly, what does this mean for your student?
