Dear Parent/Guardian:

Like you, we are just learning that Governor Gary R. Herbert, State Superintendent Syd Dickson, and the Utah State Board of Education “announced today that Utah’s K-12 public schools will extend their dismissal [soft closure] through Friday, May 1st.”  Their press release further stated that they will “continue to evaluate the situation to make a determination about the remaining school year” and that:

Gov. Herbert expressed his appreciation to the educators throughout our state who have quickly adapted their instruction to remote learning platforms. 

“These are unprecedented times in Utah’s and our nation’s history,” the governor said, “I have been overwhelmed with Utahns’ outpouring of support for one another, and nowhere has this been more evident than in the way our educators are supporting Utah students and families.”

Distance learning will continue during the extended dismissal for all K-12 public schools, where feasible…

“We recognize that being away from school creates additional work and stress for everyone in our communities; however, it is a necessary step in stopping the spread of COVID-19,” said State Superintendent Sydnee Dickson. “During the uncertainties of the coming weeks, it is more important than ever to remain socially connected with our students and families while doing our best to ensure learning continues. The flexibility and initiative of our educators is a shining example of how we rise together in challenging circumstances.”

Meal services at K-12 public schools will also continue on an as-needed basis.

Nebo School District teachers and staff remain committed to providing the learning structure and support that students and parents will require during these challenging times.  Our talented and dedicated professionals are so thankful to you students and parents for your tremendous efforts regarding at-home schooling.  Please remain in communication with your child’s teachers and contact the school with questions and concerns. 

We are so grateful to live in amazing communities that rally around each other in difficult circumstances and are proud to be your partners in helping your children have academic and social/emotional success.

 

Sincerely,

Lana Hiskey

The Park View Faculty and Staff have pulled off an amazing feat.  Teachers were able to transform "In Class Learning" to "At Home Learning" in just two short days - nothing short of miraculous. Our friendly office staff is assisting parents in this change, our custodial staff is madly disinfecting our entire school, our kitchen staff is providing "Grab-and-Go" lunches for those in needs, as well as our technicians providing help wherever they are needed.  We appreciate the patience and positivity of our parents.  Help us by giving all of these outstanding people a HUGE THANK YOU!

Until then students who are wanting breakfast will need to come to the school lunchroom between 8:00-9:00. After students are served they will need to leave the school.

CHILD CARE NOT PROVIDED

Clarification from the Governor’s Office:  At Friday’s news conference, “Gov. Gary R. Herbert mentioned that during public school’s two-week dismissal, parents who are unable to be home with children will have the option to bring them to school to be supervised by teachers. This is not the case

“School campuses will remain open for the next two weeks so students can retrieve personal items or pick up assignments from their instructors. Some instructors may be available for brief one-on-one tutoring or to help answer student questions about their assignments. It is important to note that schools will not provide childcare of any kind.” (see www.nebo.edu for full official statement)

STUDENTS AT THE SCHOOL

Other than for picking up “grab and go” meals, students can be at the school by invitation only.  If they need to come and pick up items from the classroom, desk, or locker, they should contact the school to make arrangements.  Any individual tutoring or small group instruction plans will be coordinated by the school.  

 STUDENTS AT THE SCHOOL – PART 2

 Parents always have the right to determine that their child should not come to the school, even if invited for specific services or instruction.  As always, students and others should refrain from coming to the school if they are sick or have been in direct contact with those who are sick with the virus.

 

BUSES

At this time a limited number of buses may be seen driving in your communities.  These buses are on specific assignments and are not for the general student population.  Please don’t mistake the presence of buses as a signal that schools are in session.

SALT LAKE CITY (March 14, 2020) - At a news conference yesterday afternoon, Gov. Gary R.  Herbert mentioned that during public school’s two-week dismissal, parents who are unable to be home with children will have the option to bring them to school to be supervised by teachers. This is not the case.

School campuses will remain open for the next two weeks so students can retrieve personal items or pick up assignments from their instructors. Some instructors may be available for brief one-on-one tutoring or to help answer student questions about their assignments. It is important to note that schools will not provide childcare of any kind.

During this period, meal services to students will still be available. In many instances, this is a grab-and-go lunch or breakfast program. These options will vary by school, designed to meet the unique needs of the local school community.

Families should look to local districts and charters for information on specific services available during the two-week dismissal.

Reading Week Kickoff

This year’s theme for reading work is “Books Build Brains” and at Park View everyone’s brain is under construction! We kicked off reading week with a really fun assembly put on by some of our finest faculty members. Mr. Atkin had lost his brain, thankfully our trusty construction workers were able to build Mr. Atkin’s brain with books. 

Today was our first day traveling around the school listening to different teachers read books about building our brains. We sure do love reading week! 

Don’t forget, Friday kids get to dress as construction workers! Can we fix it? YES WE CAN!
