Sage Creek Elementary

Open Enrollment

The open enrollment window is now open and closes (by law) the 3rd Fri in February … this year it will be Fri, Feb 18. Students can apply for open enrollment after that deadline, but the success rate significantly diminishes. Open enrollment is the process a student goes through when he/she desires to go to a school where he/she does not reside in its boundaries. This is especially important for 5th gr students who are here at Sage Creek under open enrollment. If you desire your student to go to a different middle school than where they live, you must apply through open enrollment. Dual-immersion students who have open-enrolled to Sage Creek, must apply for open enrollment to attend Spring Canyon Middle School where dual-immersion continues. To apply for open enrollment, you go the district website (nebo.edu) → Information → Open Enrollment. There is a $5 processing fee. The district will send you a reply mid-March.

Canvas and Infinite Campus

A quick reminder to check Infinite Campus regularly to help your child stay caught up in class. To check grades you can go to https://nebout.infinitecampus.org/campus/portal/parents/nebo.jsp and log in using the credentials from registration.
