School Re-Opening 2020-2021???
At this time, there are no definite answers to any of those questions! Our school administrators are working closely with district leaders, who are in turn working with the Utah State Board of Education to find answers. Our educational institutions must also be in compliance with the health department, so you can understand that this is not an easy problem to fix. Please be patient and kind with our administrators as they work through this. You will receive information via email promptly as it is decided upon.
The Christian Center Food Pantry is also still open in Heber,
11am-4pm Mon- Fri
55 E Center St., Heber
A special testing site will be available at Heber Valley Elementary June 4th, 4-8pm. Details are included in the above link.

SENIORS Class of 2020
For those seniors who aren't sure what they are going to do now that they've graduated; let us offer you a few things to think about:
- MTECH- its not too late to start a program at MTECH! All of their programs will lead to a certificate in a skill that will take you into a higher-paying job than minimum wage. Many students love the shorter programs(a few months up to 18months) and like that the classes are focused on direct studies of the necessary skills, no general elective classes to worry about! See the MTECH section mentioned above for information about the MTECH advisor coming to West Campus on June 17th. You can ask her about program options and find out if it would be a good fit for you!
- BYU- Salt Lake Center- Never heard of it?? It is one of Utah's best-kept secrets! A great school to get started on a degree if you are unsure about which route you are going to go. Evening classes available and only a 2.0 GPA minimum to register!! Flexible schedules for those of you who are trying to work fulltime. Check it out by clicking on the brochure below this section!
- WORK-Not interested in continuing your education right now? Want to jump into working fulltime? Are you having a hard time finding a job? Visit these resources for help: https://www.heberut.gov/jobs.aspx, https://wasatchjobs.com/, https://jobs.utah.gov/, or take time to visit local stores and restaurants and ask about employment. Many of them are hiring NOW!
