Submitted by kali.brown on Thu, 04/30/2020 - 13:36

Chromebook, Library/Take Home Book RETURN and Student Belonging Grab n’ Go Pick-Up

There are 3 things that need to be accomplished:  student belonging pickup, library/take home book return, Chromebook return (after May 22nd).  Our schedule needs to keep everyone safe AND practice social distancing.  We will have 2 day(s) when parents can return books, turn in Chromebook(s) and pick up student belongings according to below schedule:

Tuesday          5-26-20            10:00-12:00     A –  F   (last name)
Tuesday          5-26-20            12:00-2:00       G  – L   (last name)
Wednesday     5-27-20            10:00-12:00     M – R   (last name)
Wednesday     5-27-20            12:00-2:00       S  –  Z   (last name)

Parent (one at a time, staggered) will enter the South-East OUTER gym doors on the stage side.  Parent will return all take-home books to a labeled table/bin.  Parent will return all library books to a labeled table/bin.  Parent will turn in their Chromebook(s) to designated tables.  Parent will then collect all student belongings (labeled bags) from grade-level table.  All student items K-6 will be available on labeled grade-level tables in the center of the lunchroom.  Parent will then EXIT the North-East outer gym door on the lunch counter side.

This accomplishes our direction of social distancing and large group gatherings with just one (1) drop-off/pick-up event.  Persons in the gym will be spaced apart and limited to only an essential number of people.  Staff in the building will be spread out and be limited in number.  Thank you so much for your support and patience!

K-12 Live Online Reading Classes Available Now

Submitted by kali.brown on Fri, 04/24/2020 - 11:11


The Utah Valley University K-12 Reading Program has opened early, reduced rates, and converted all classes to a live online format, to help parents and schools maintain student education during these unusual times.

Our live, teacher-led online classes are available now and throughout the summer, for Pre-K through 12th grade students. The curriculum is high caliber and has been taught in a live, online format for 5 years already with over 50,000 school-age students.  The classes are led by highly-trained teachers with many years’ experience teaching effectively in online classrooms.  Skills taught include:

  • Early Elementary: letter recognition, phonemic awareness, sight words, phonics
  • Mid-to-Late Elementary: fluency, phonics, long-word decoding, comprehension, textbook reading, writing
  • Middle and High School: doubling reading speed, comprehension, writing, notetaking, test preparation, textbook strategies

Due to the unfolding health crisis our ability to get the word out to parents has been greatly diminished.  Many parents are seeking solutions to keep their children productively engaged and ready to hit the ground running when in-person school resumes.  Should a parent have trouble opening the attachment they could also visit our website at

We appreciate your support as we all strive to keep students learning, reading, and connecting with other kids during this challenging time.
