Yearbook Distribution and Chromebook Return

We are still finalizing plans for students to return their Chromebook and pick up their yearbook.

We will be doing a "Drive Thru" Chromebook return and Yearbook Pickup on Wed, May 20-Fri, May 22. We will have more details in the next few days. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we finalize the plans.

End of Term Grading

As we near the end of the year, we wanted to make sure you are aware of how we are approaching final grading for 4th Term. These grade changes will take effect on May 20th.

  • There will be no F grades given. Instead they will be given "I" (Incomplete) and will have until December 2020 to work with the teacher to make up that grade.
  • Students earning an A or B* will be given the letter grade earned in the class.

*Students will have until May 20th to request a "P" instead of a B, if they prefer

  • Students earning a C or D will be given a "P" (Pass) for their final grade in the class.

Daily Announcements

May 4th Announcements
If you haven't been on our School Website (dfjhs.nebo.edu) or Instagram page (@official_diamond_fork_jr) lately, you're missing out on our Administration's daily announcement videos. They're not very high quality, but they're something at least... We miss seeing our students each day, so we thought we could at least say hi each day!

FREE School Breakfast & Lunch

Nebo School District has received a fee waiver from the State Board of Education to provide a FREE NUTRITION PROGRAM for AGES 0-18.

Each school day (M-F), students can pick up a Grab-n-Go breakfast and lunch between 10:30am-12:00pm from several area schools. Diamond Fork Junior High is one of these locations. Children from any school may pick up meals at any of the locations, but the children must be present to pick up meals. Both meals may be picked up at the same time.
