PTA Information



What a week it has been! We are saddened that so many things were canceled due the COVID-19. The lower grade Talent Show, D.E.A.R week, Music programs and Picture Day, to name a few, will be suspended until further notice.

We encourage you to keep up to date with the Salt Lake District website, where you will be able to find the most up to date news regarding school communications Also, we encourage you to check your emails. Your students teacher will be sending communications and class work in the next week via email, so keep a look out for that as well.

Lastly, if you need to visit the school in the next day or two, please keep your children in the car. Parents are welcome to retrieve anything from the teachers, but the administration would prefer that children stay outside of school.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please take care of yourselves and your families. We will miss those cheery little faces at the school, but hope this will pass soon and we can get back to life as usual.
