The Latest and Greatest

We are off to a great start this school year. It is sure different than any other, but that isn't stopping us! I am so very proud of our students. They are adapting and adjusting to masks amazingly well! They are happy to be at school and are doing their part! Thank you parents for encouraging your children!

I hope your Labor Day weekend was wonderful. I am grateful for the rain to help put out the fires in our area. Prayers and good thoughts for those fighting the fires and those affected by them. Springville is a wonderful community that comes together and helps one another.

Teachers are working hard each day to prepare for any at home learning that may be required. If a class or individual students ever need to stay home, you will be notified. If you do not get a notification from me or the school nurse your child does not need to quarantine. We follow the guidelines and instructions from the Utah County Health Department. Please call if you ever have any questions.

How can I help my child stay well and enjoy each day at school?

  • Be positive! Focus on the good. Be encouraging. Don't share frustrations with your child. They hold on to that and mimic what they see and hear at home.
  • Make sure children eat healthy, good food each day. Food makes all the difference in how our bodies work and fight off illnesses.
  • Send a clean water bottle with them to school. Hydration is so very important!
  • Do not send your child to school if they are ill. Ensure they do not have a fever or other symptoms related to COVID. (One of the reasons we are getting out at 2:15 each day is so that teachers can work with students who are absent for one reason or another. It's ok to keep kids home when they don't feel well or need to be quarantined for any reason.)
  • Communicate needs with your child's teacher. We want the best for them. We need you to help us.
  • Be positive!
