Our 7th grade day and first day of school were both a success! We are excited that this year is off to a great start! Every Wednesday I will send out a school newsletter that will provide information about upcoming events, important reminders, and a link to your student’s SIS account as well as his/her lunch account balance. In this week’s newsletter, I am including some important reminders for parents and students as we start off this school year. Feel free to email me or call the school with any questions (801-465-6040).
STUDENT DROP OFF AND PICKUP
The bus lanes are located in front of the school to the east. Please keep these lanes clear for the buses. The student pick up and drop off lane is located on the north side of the school.
STUDENT DRESS CODE
With all of our new students we have had many new inquiries into school dress codes and standards. Recently, Nebo School District did approve hats to be worn in secondary schools. The policy states “Students in secondary schools may wear hats and other head coverings. Notwithstanding the foregoing, hats and head coverings may not be worn in either elementary or secondary schools if doing so disrupts the educational environment, poses a danger to self or others, or limits the ability of others to identify the student.”
Please also note that clothing must be modest. Modesty includes covering shoulders, midriff, back, underwear, and cleavage. Inappropriately short, tight, or revealing clothing is prohibited. Skirts, dresses, and shorts must be at least mid-thigh length when the student is sitting. Pants or jeans with holes in them must not show skin above mid-thigh. Jeans with holes above mid-thigh must have holes covered.
Please review the Nebo School District dress code policy here: http://www.nebo.edu/pubpolicy/J/JDG.pdf
