Handicap Parking

Patrons, we would ask you to make sure you are not parking in the handicap spots unless you have a handicap parking pass. We have some patrons that really need these spots and they are often unavailable because people are using them without having a handicap parking pass. Thank you!!

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.
