This is an online event.

Our annual 9th grade Awards' Assembly will be a VIRTUAL assembly. It will go LIVE on Tuesday, May 19th at 12:00 noon. Login to our school website (dfjhs.nebo.edu) to check it out!

Chromebook Return

It's time to return Chromebooks! If you checked out a Chromebook way back in March when school was shut down, it's time for you to bring those back! Please take a minute to make sure you have the charging cable with you as well when you return the Chromebook. Please take those directly to the library by entering in the north doors near the bus lanes. These are the dates and times Chromebooks can be returned to the school:

Wednesday May 20 8am-3pm

Thursday May 21 8am-3pm

Friday May 22 8am-11am

Yearbook Distribution (DELAYED)

Due to the COVID outbreak, delivery of our yearbooks have been delayed. We do not know for sure when they will arrive, but we will communicate with you once they arrive and what our distribution plan will be for them.

Please make sure you have returned all school items (Chromebooks, textbooks, costumes, etc) this week so you can receive your yearbook when they arrive.

Locker Clean out & Item Return

If you missed your assigned day/time for Locker Clean out, you are welcome to stop by this week! Come in and clean out your lockers (including PE lockers), pick up other items left at school, and turn in/return other school items.

We ask that you please maintain social distancing and avoid congregating with other students.

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. By the end of today, all these changes will take effect:

  • 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

Announcements Monday, May 18th
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!
