News from your school

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We are just a few weeks away from the start of school and I want to keep you updated on a few items in preparation. 

First Day of School:  Our first day of school for all grades (K-6) is scheduled for Wednesday, August 26.  The schedule for the first 3 days of school will be 8:35 – 12:30. We are currently planning on a five-day week with students attending school each day.  We have a full-day kindergarten so all grade levels will follow the same schedule.  We will be following the SAFE Weber Framework and anticipate opening under the “Moderate Precautions.”  

45 Minute change in school dismissal time for 1st Quarter:  The dismissal time for school will be shortened by 45 minutes for the 1st Quarter. This information is also posted on our school’s website on the calendar as a quick reference for parents.

  • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday:  8:35-2:30
  • August 26-28, September 18, October 12-14 and ALL Wednesdays: 8:35 - 12:30

Class Assignment:  All classroom assignments will be posted on the myWeber Portal by August 12.  You will be able to see your child’s teacher’s name on that day.    

Back-to-School Event:  Scheduled for August 24, 4:30 - 6:30 on the eastside of the building by the playground area (weather permitting).  Families are encouraged to attend during a designated time slot based on the student's last name. Office access will be through the front door entrance only. Teachers will be sharing  a video prior to the event with classroom expectations and procedures.  Support staff and PTA are also planning to be located on the playground area. Please remember to adhere to the State Public Health Order (Effective July 17) by wearing face coverings and practicing social distancing. while on school property.  

4:30 - 5:00 A–D 

5:00 - 5:30 E-L 

5:30 - 6:00  K-R 

6:00 - 6:30  S-Z 

Notifications and Contact Information:  Every year it is critical that we have updated contact information for all parents/guardians.   Please make sure to update that information on the myWeber Portal or by calling the school when changes occur.  Many notifications come from the school through email.  Our district has an opt-in process for notifications and we are unable to update this at a school level.  If you change your email or need to update the email that is receiving notification, please do so on the myWeber Portal.    Here is a link to our school’s website with additional information on notifications: http://northpark.wsd.net/index.php/en/parents/join-notification-system

Facial Coverings:  As of today, we will be operating under the Utah Department of Health- State Public Health Order effective as of July 17, 2020.  The order mandates: “Each individual, including an employee student, or visitor, on school property or on a school bus shall wear a face covering…” We will comply with the health order and the governor’s directives.  We encourage you to read the order and become familiar with its provisions and how they may apply to your child’s circumstances.  Although the order is explicit on requiring the use of face coverings, it does allow for some flexibility while providing certain exemptions.   The district is in the process of finalizing the policy that will align with the order and it will be sent out soon.   WSD will be providing one reusable cloth face mask with school colors and logo to every student.  We are hoping to have these available at our Back-to-School Event on August 24.   The district is in the process of finalizing the policy that will align with the Public Health Order and that policy will be sent out as soon as it is completed.     

Class Donation Lists:   We greatly appreciate the generous support that we receive annually from our community to provide essential learning supplies for our students.  Because of the unique circumstances of this year and out of respect to the needs of the community, we have chosen to not post or provide supply lists.  Although households should never feel obligated to provide school supplies, we realize that some may still wish to donate.  We assure you that any items you choose to provide will be distributed generally for the benefit of students.  Common items that may be donated could include: empty spray bottles, hand sanitizer, paper towels, tissues, wipes, ziploc bags (gallon & sandwich size), glue sticks, crayons, fine tip dry erase markers, post-it notes, magic erasers, highlighters, child size scissors, colored pencils, etc.   We do recommend students have some type of book bag to carry and store items.   

Lunch and Recess:  As a school, we have designed a plan to minimize the number of students in the lunchroom and on the playground.  We will be operating under the SAFE Weber Framework and local health department guidelines.

Lunch Procedures:  There have been changes in regard to the movement, seating, serving and schedule for lunch.  Our goal is to minimize the number of students on the playground and in the lunchroom at any one time.   If your child is bringing a lunch from home, the lunch container will need to remain in their possession throughout the day.  The container needs to be marked with their name and if possible fit in their book bag. As a reminder, there is a Free and Reduced Meals Application available through the Child Nutrition Department on the website.   If you are paying for lunches, payment will be accepted through the myWeber Portal or at school with the secretary or lunch manager.  Due to health restrictions, we will not be accepting money from students as they go through the lunch line. 

Busses:  Busses will be operating as usual with the exception of requiring students to wear a face covering.  Students will also be assigned seating and family groups will be kept together.  Procedures for entry and exit will be followed.  Although the State Public Health Order is explicit on requiring the use of face coverings, it does allow for some flexibility while providing certain exemptions.

I will update you with additional information as it becomes available.  I know there are still many questions so thank you for being patient and understanding as changes are made.  As a staff, we are working to get schedules in place and prepare everything in order for children to return to school.  Please don’t hesitate to call or send an email if you have questions. 

Tigers are GGGRRREAT!!!


Sincerely,
Rebecca Okey
Principal
