HOWEVER, starting this Thursday, May 14th through the end of the year, all meals will need to be picked up in the school's NORTH Parking lot (near the seminary building). This is due to the major construction underway in our East parking lot. Thank you for your patience!

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. These grade changes will take effect on May 20th.


  • 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 11th
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!
