SCHOOL BEGINS NEXT WEEK
The first day of school will be Monday, August 19. Please note that the first bell rings at 7:55am and classes will begin promptly at 8:00am. Also be aware that early out is 1:55pm on Mondays in order to allow for teacher collaboration meetings. Tuesdays through Fridays the school day will be from 8:00am to 2:40pm.
7TH GRADE DAY AND SFJHS OPEN HOUSE - FRIDAY, AUGUST 16TH
All 7th graders and their parents are invited to attend 7th Grade Orientation on FRIDAY, August 16 from 8:00-10:20am. 7th graders will have the opportunity to attend an orientation assembly, go to each of their classes, meet their teachers and practice opening their lockers. Busing will be provided so your child can practice riding his route. Later that same day from 1:00-3:00pm there will be an Open House for students of all grades and their parents/guardians. Teachers will be in their rooms and available to answer any questions you may have.
If you have not completed immunizations on your children OF ANY AGE, please have that completed by the first day of school. To attend the 7th grade in Utah a student must have proof of receiving the Meningococcal vaccine and the Tetanus/Diptheria/Pertussis (Tdap) booster. Your student will not be able to attend 7th grade without the school having this information on file. Parents are asked to bring in or mail in a copy of the immunization document from the Health Department or doctor’s office as proof of required vaccinations.
