Mustang Monday Message

Mustang Family,


On Wednesday, we have Spring Picture Day for those that would like to participate. If you would like to order pictures, you will find an order form below with a website link to order pictures. Because students won't be bringing a picture packet to school (the ordering is all done online), please make sure your child's teacher knows your child would like their picture taken on Wednesday.


Next Monday, we will be celebrating Valentine's Day as a school. Students are allowed to bring valentines IF they bring one for each student in the class. However, special valentines are not to be exchanged at school. Our student council will begin their annual Val-O-Gram fundraiser starting tomorrow (more details below). The proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards student council's BYU leadership conference.


In an attempt to celebrate the good work happening in our schools and to identify areas where we can improve, we ask that you complete this anonymous survey. Thank you! Here is the link to the survey: Nebo School District Stakeholder Survey 2020-21. Our survey will close on February 28, 2022.


Thank you all for your incredible support. Best,


Principal Balli



Familia Mustang,


El miércoles, tenemos el Día de Fotos de Primavera para aquellos que deseen participar. Si desea solicitar imágenes, encontrará un formulario de pedido a continuación con un enlace al sitio web para solicitar imágenes. Debido a que los estudiantes no traerán un paquete de fotos a la escuela (todo el pedido se hace en línea), asegúrese de que el maestro de su hijo sepa que a su hijo le gustaría que le tomaran una foto el miércoles.


El próximo lunes, estaremos celebrando el Día de los Enamorados como escuela. Los estudiantes pueden traer tarjetas de San Valentín SI traen una para cada estudiante en la clase. Sin embargo, las tarjetas de San Valentín especiales no deben intercambiarse en la escuela. Nuestro consejo estudiantil comenzará su recaudación de fondos anual Val-O-Gram a partir de mañana (más detalles a continuación). Las ganancias de esta recaudación de fondos se destinarán a la conferencia de liderazgo de BYU del consejo estudiantil.


En un intento de celebrar el buen trabajo que se está realizando en nuestras escuelas y de identificar las áreas en las que podemos mejorar, le pedimos que complete esta encuesta anónima. ¡Gracias! Aquí está el enlace a la encuesta: Nebo School District Stakeholder Survey 2020-21. Nuestra encuesta se cerrará el 28 de febrero de 2022.


Gracias a todos por su increíble apoyo. Mejor,


Director Balli

Utah Department of Health Medicaid

Utah has one of the highest rates of uninsured children in the nation. Covering kids with health insurance is critical to Utah’s communities. Studies have shown that a child’s health coverage reduces the number of days parents have to miss work because of a sick child. Children with health insurance stay healthier because they receive medical care sooner and more regularly.


CHIP and Medicaid cover Utah children with complete coverage, ranging from regular doctor visits to emergency care. For no cost, children are able to access preventive and routine care including immunizations, dental cleanings and well-child exams. A family of four can earn up to $53,000 annually and qualify for free or reduced cost health insurance.


For more information about these programs, please visit coveringkids.health.utah.gov. If you have additional questions or would like to order materials to distribute, please contact Jorge Fuentes at the Utah Department of Health at 801-538-9171 or jfuentes@utah.gov.

The facts are compelling: children do better when they have quality health care -- they grow up stronger, ready to learn and are prepared to contribute to their communities. Thank you for your help in telling the families in your community that CHIP and Medicaid are resources available to them!

New Mental Health Resource for Parents

We are pleased to offer a free and confidential website for families, ParentGuidance.org. This site was developed by licensed therapists that provides trusted and specialized courses, professional support, and a safe community for parents, to learn how to support your child.

Cold Weather Protocols

With cold weather arriving, we would encourage you to write your student's names in their gloves and jackets so that if they lose them on the playground we can return them. If you are new to our school and would like to see our winter protocols, click here.
