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!!!

Rebecca Okey
Principal

News from your school 

(August 1, 2020)

Dear Parents,

As North Park teachers and staff, we have been working to put plans in place to begin a great and exciting new year of school.  Weber School District is planning to open with in-person instruction on August 26. You should have each received an email from the members of the Weber School District Superintendency and Board of Education regarding the approval of the SAFE Weber Framework and the notification that the school day will be shortened by 45 minutes.  Details on the schedule change should be finalized this week and I’ll send information out as soon as it is available. Weber School District is planning to open at the moderate level of precaution.  However, if conditions worsen in regard to the spread of the virus and with guidance from the Weber-Morgan Health Department, the district is prepared to move to a more intense level of precaution.  

During the month of August, teachers will start to return to the building and begin getting their rooms ready for the beginning of school.  As I have spoken with them, they are excited to be with students and do what they love most--teach.  The custodial staff,  lunchroom staff, and office staff have been working throughout the summer to clean and prepare the building.  Teachers have been spending time through the summer and will continue to be involved over the next few weeks in additional training on CANVAS, Google Tools, academic curriculum, social-emotional learning, and health and safety guidelines.  As a school we are working together as a team to take the precautions needed to help mitigate the spread of the virus. Our staff is dedicated and it is a privilege to work and associate with each of them.  

As we begin our year, there will be changes to what may have been considered “normal procedures” in the past.   In addition to the cleaning and sanitizing and personal hygiene procedures, some changes will also involve procedures for social distancing during pick-up/drop-off, check-out, volunteering, lunch/breakfast procedures, and meetings or conferences with teachers.  Our goal is to work closely with students, staff, parents and the community to provide a safe, healthy, and quality education for our students.  We appreciate your cooperation and support as we work together as a team.  

August 6 from 10:00 - 6:00 is new student registration at the school.  If you have any new neighbors, please let them know of this event.  Since you have a student that is already enrolled, you will only need to digitally sign some documents and update information if needed through the Portal.  Class assignments will be posted to the portal in a couple of weeks. 

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.

5:00 - 5:30 E-L 

5:30 - 6:00  K-R 

6:00 - 6:30  S-Z 


If you have any questions,  please contact the office or reach out to me (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Thank you for your continued support and cooperation as we begin this new journey together!

Parents, 

I understand that as we move closer to the start of school, you may have some concerns about face-to-face instruction. In July, our District Superintendent, Dr. Jeff Stephens, sent an email out to all Weber School District parents regarding the upcoming school year and the development of a district framework.  I have attached his letter to this email for your information.  Here is a link to the SAFE Weber Framework:

https://wsd.net/covid-19/news/safe-weber

At North Park, our plan is to begin the school under "moderate precautions" outlined in the SAFE Weber Framework.  We are prepared to offer alternative solutions to you and your child as needed.  We will work to keep you updated through emails and will be posting information on our school's website.   northpark.wsd.net.

If you know of any new students that have moved into the area, please let them know our new student registration will be held at the school on August 6 from 10:00 - 6:00.   A follow-up email with more details on registration and the beginning of school will be sent in August.  We are planning a modified back-to-school event and will send more information as we get closer to the beginning of the school year.
