Join us for a FB Live Panel Event to answer questions you may have--Monday, March 30th at 10AM! Please submit questions ahead of time to email@example.com. For the panel, we will have administration, teachers, and student council members! We can't wait to see you there! #mtnebojhs #pantherpride #NeboSchoolDistrict #utahpublicschools #athomelearning2020
While some of us parents have the time (and energy) to sit next to our children as they complete all the necessary at-home learning, some of us do not and therefore may need another way of checking in our student's work. One way that you can help support your student at home as a parent is to become an "observer" in Canvas. This allows you as a parent to track assignments on Canvas. An "observer" sees assignments and student progress for a student that they are "paired" with. Students can generate a code while logged into Canvas under their user settings. Here are some instructions from Canvas:
Every Monday, this group of Mt. Nebo faculty and staff meet together for our weekly Youth Support Meeting. This week, our meeting was a little different than it normally is because we used video conferencing instead of being in the Panther Den. Although our meeting space was different, what we worked together on was still the same: SUPPORTING STUDENTS! We want all of our students to know that we miss you and care about you. We are still working hard to help you succeed! Let us know how we can help! #mtnebojhs #NeboSchoolDistrict #utahpublicschools #pantherpride #pantherroar #zoommeeting #athomelearning2020

Like you, we are just learning that Governor Gary R. Herbert, State Superintendent Syd Dickson, and the Utah State Board of Education “announced today that Utah’s K-12 public schools will extend their dismissal [soft closure] through Friday, May 1st.” Their press release further stated that they will “continue to evaluate the situation to make a determination about the remaining school year” and that:
Gov. Herbert expressed his appreciation to the educators throughout our state who have quickly adapted their instruction to remote learning platforms.
“These are unprecedented times in Utah’s and our nation’s history,” the governor said, “I have been overwhelmed with Utahns’ outpouring of support for one another, and nowhere has this been more evident than in the way our educators are supporting Utah students and families.”
Distance learning will continue during the extended dismissal for all K-12 public schools, where feasible…
“We recognize that being away from school creates additional work and stress for everyone in our communities; however, it is a necessary step in stopping the spread of COVID-19,” said State Superintendent Sydnee Dickson. “During the uncertainties of the coming weeks, it is more important than ever to remain socially connected with our students and families while doing our best to ensure learning continues. The flexibility and initiative of our educators is a shining example of how we rise together in challenging circumstances.”
Meal services at K-12 public schools will also continue on an as-needed basis.
Nebo School District teachers and staff remain committed to providing the learning structure and support that students and parents will require during these challenging times. Our talented and dedicated professionals are so thankful to you students and parents for your tremendous efforts regarding at-home schooling. Please remain in communication with your child’s teachers and contact the school with questions and concerns.
We are so grateful to live in amazing communities that rally around each other in difficult circumstances and are proud to be your partners in helping your children have academic and social/emotional success.
There has not been a better time for Mt. Nebo's HOPE week which will take place March 23-27th. Our AWESOME counselors have put together this #zoom video to demonstrate social distancing as well as introduce what we will be focussing on each day. Take a photo or video demonstrating the theme for the day and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can feature you on Facebook and Instagram!***This video took several takes and Mr. Williams did make the basket on a take that did not make the final cut.*** #PantherHOPE #mtnebojhs #NeboSchoolDistrict #utahpublicschools #schoolcounselors #NeboHeroes
We've received some feedback that some courses may not be showing up on students' Canvas dashboards so a short video was created. Hope this helps! Contact your teachers if you still have trouble or check out this previous post for more Canvas help.
Our latest video recaps the happenings at Mt. Nebo Jr. High. Tomorrow is the day that at-home learning will begin! Teachers have been working to get content and classes ready for this adventure! Information about how to login to courses is available on our website: www.mnjhs.nebo.edu
