After School Opportunities
The following list is by no means exhaustive nor is it endorsed in any way by Indian Hills or SLCSD in any way. These are simply the programs that are serving some of our students as we have seen they may provide transportation from the school in some form of bus or van or parents have contacted me saying that the program is where their children go after school and they want other parents to know of the resource. If you are interested in any of these programs for your child/ren, please research them for yourself. Again, I am only providing this information as a courtesy and not as an endorsement in any way. Here are the programs in no particular order. I hope this information helps in some way. Take care.

From their website: St. John’s school-age program is just as much fun as our summer camp, but on a smaller scale. We pick up at your child’s school, serve them snack, work on their homework, then it’s on to some fun.

VISITORS AND VOLUNTEERS
Here is the most updated policy:
Q: Will visitors and volunteers be allowed to enter schools?
A: Volunteers are now allowed to visit schools for the purpose of providing tutoring and assisting in school productions (plays, choir, dance, instrumental, etc…). Volunteers are required to wear a mask and socially distance as much as possible. Only adults will be allowed to enter for volunteer activities. Visitors may schedule meetings with an individual teacher, counselor, or administrators as needed. Visitors with appointments are required to wear masks and socially distance as much as possible. We will review this decision every 30 days.
