"Who are these masked women?" you might asked. None other than our wonderful lunch ladies that work tiredlessly to provide hundreds of Grab-and-Go Breakfast/Lunch sacks daily for the many hungry children in our community.  Hats off to them for their sacrifice and dedication to feed our children during this challenging time.  One Park View Parent emailed this kind comment, "I just wanted to tell you how much we appreciate your staff and all they have done for free lunches! We love getting out of the house for a minute, and it the highlight of our mornings being able to go grab them. Your staff is always so happy and excited to see everyone. You guys all rock for all you've done!"  Lunch Ladies are truly our Nebo Super Heroes!

Are you struggling to find books for your child to read during At Home Learning? If so you definitely need to check out Nebo's Online Library App for students! 

The Sora app is easy to access from a computer, chromebook, or other electronic device. Here's how to do it:

  • Simply go to Sora and sign in.  Here's the link https://soraapp.com/welcome
  •  If it is your first time visiting Sora, sometimes you have to search for your school. If you get asked to do this, look for Park View Elementary School. Then click this is my school!
  • You will then be given the option to select whether you are a student or a staff member. Be sure that you select student not staff member.
  • At this point, you will need to enter your nebo email address and the same password you get on your email and the chromebooks. 
  • Once you are on the Sora homescreen, you are free to look for books and check them out! If you are not TOTALLY sure you want a book, please click "read sample" before checking it out.
  • If you check out a book you have NO interest in, and immediately return it, it still counts as one checkout.
  • Certain books (as decided by the publisher) are called metered use books. After 24 checkouts, those books have to be purchased again digitally. So please consider the sample option, if you aren't sure you are looking at a book that you will enjoy. 

Most of all, take some time each day to relax and read a book.

If you have any questions about the process, please contact Mrs. Bjarnson, our librarian at joyce.bjarnson@nebo.edu and she will respond as soon as she can.

Happy Reading!

Update on School Dismissal

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!
