Chromebook Insurance

If you did not purchase the optional $30 insurance when you signed the computer agreement and you would like to do so now, you may call the finance office for come in to the school to pay for it. This will cover accidental damage to the Chromebook. Without insurance, the replacement of a damaged Chromebook would be $250.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, September 24th from 2:30 – 7:00pm. We welcome communication from our parents and want to do our best to provide support to students and parents throughout the school year. Due to COVID-19 we need to limit the number of people in the building during Parent Teacher Conferences. We are asking that if your child has an “A” or “B” in their classes you communicate any questions with your student’s teachers through email rather than come in to meet with them during Parent Teacher Conferences. We want to encourage parents to come in if your student has a “C” grade or lower in a class to meet with the teacher. Teachers will have grades up to date in ICampus by the end of the day on Wednesday, September 23rd. Please check in ICampus to review your student’s grades.


Teachers will be in their classrooms during Parent Teacher Conferences to meet with parents, not in the cafeteria. We also want to limit meetings with teachers to 5 minutes to reduce the amount of waiting time for everyone. Masks are required to be worn at Parent Teacher Conferences. All parents can reach out to teachers via email throughout the school year as needed and we encourage this communication. We appreciate all of your support. We have an awesome student body and faculty and we have had a great start to the school year!

Checking Student Grades in ICampus

If you haven't been online to check your student's grades, we encourage you to do so (and do so regularly). Here's how to do it:


  1. Go to www.nebo.edu.
  2. Under the "Parents" Tab, select "Infinite Campus Parent Portal"
  3. Login using the login and password you chose at the time of registration.
  4. Once logged in, click "Grades" in the left margin
  5. Click on the Course Title (i.e. "Math 8") to see specifics about a grade.
  6. If you have more than one student in the district, you can change which student you are looking at by selecting the drop down in the top right corner.

FREE MEALS FOR STUDENTS!

NEBO SCHOOL DISTRICT is offering free breakfast and free lunch every weekday for at school AND remote learners! Read on for details from the district:


Dear Parents/Guardians:


Beginning Monday, September 14, 2020, Nebo School District will be switching to an “Open Restricted Meal Program.” Under this program, breakfast and lunch are available for free to all students enrolled in Nebo School District, including remote learners.


If your student is a remote learner and you want to participate, please call your school each morning before 9 a.m. to place your order. Meals will be available for pick up in the front office 30 minutes before your school’s scheduled lunch. A 15-minute time frame has been allotted for meal pick up.


For the safety of our students, meals will only be available to students enrolled in the Nebo School District and will not be available to other children. This will help ensure the safety of our students and their families as additional foot traffic is kept to a minimum in our buildings.


This program is scheduled to run through December 2020, or until funding is exhausted. We will send updates as developments occur.


Sincerely,

Spencer Sainsbury

Child Nutrition Department

We Need You...To Join PTA!

It's not too late to join PTA. Becoming a member of the PTA shows that you want to help support the programs and events that help enhance students' experiences at school. It does not obligate you to attend the PTA meetings or volunteer. While we would love for everyone to attend, we understand families are busy during the school year and have other important commitments.


  • Minutes are available and posted online for you to review.
  • Membership is $6.00 and can be purchased online at:

https://sfjhspta.new.memberhub.store/store?category=Memberships

  • More information about getting involved in volunteering can be found at
