Students have been learning how to find library books online through an app called Sora. You can find it through the Nebo Website by going to the www.nebo.edu, the student tab, student home page, scroll down and find the link that says Library Digital. They can find books that they can read or books that they can listen to be read to them. We love reading!!

Hello Taylor Tiger Families!

Thanks so much for registering your children for school.  We appreciate your patience with our new program.  If you have not registered your child for school, please do so asap.  We are here to help if you need assistance! 

We want to remind you that today, if all goes well with this new program, you should be able to see who your child's teacher is.  You will need to go to Infinite Campus and check your child's schedule.  There it should say who your child's teacher is.  If you have not registered your child, there will not be a teacher listed.  If you think you have registered your child and there is not a teacher listed, please call the office, 801-465-6050.  

If for some reason there is a glitch and the program is not ready, I will try to get an email out to you asap to let you know there is a problem.

Please mark your calendar for August 18th, for our Virtual Taylor Open House!  Teachers will be reaching out to you via email and infinite campus contact to make sure you have all the links and videos to welcome your children back to school. We know this is not our traditional format and although we are sad we won't get to see you in person we want to work hard to keep everyone as safe as possible. Allowing us to do a virtual open house will hopefully allow this to happen.  

School will begin the following Wednesday, August 19th, at 9:15 am and will dismiss at 2:45pm.  Kindergarten will begin the following week, Wednesday, August 26th. 

Please call in to the school this week to schedule your KINDERGARTENER'S Assessment.  This will take place the first week of school.

Please watch for more information later in the week regarding our opening plans and some basic essentials you will want to know for your children attending Taylor Elementary.  During such a crazy time we feel it important to say thanks for all your support!  We look forward to a great year and can't wait to see our kids back with us.

WELCOME Kindergarten Students!

We are excited to have you join our TAYLOR TIGER Family!

Kindergarten students need to participate in an assessment that is given to each student individually the first week of school.  This is done so that the teachers get to know the students a little better before the official first day of Kindergarten, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 26th.

This is a VERY important appointment cause this helps us determine which class each student will be placed in as well as student placement in Optional Extended Day Kindergarten (OEK).  Please try to be on time.  The assessment will take 20 - 30 minutes.  Parents or guardians must be present with kindergartener.  Meet the teachers by the front entrance of the school, please wait on the benches near the flagpole.  MASK ARE REQUIRED TO ENTER THE BUILDING!

PLEASE CALL THE SCHOOL TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT by August 18th!

Welcome to Taylor Elementary, Mrs Stone. We are very excited to have you join the Tiger Team. Mrs. Stone will be our school counselor! Here is a message from her: I’ve been a school counselor for the past nine years. I love it! I’ve served at the high school and middle school levels, and am excited about being at an elementary school. I have two awesome kids! As a family we enjoy camping and riding our razor. I love music and play the piano and sing. My kids enjoy music as well, my little boy is in a singing group and my daughter plays the piano and viola. I look forward to getting to know the Taylor Elementary community and working with the wonderful students.

Taylor Elementary Important Information

Hello Taylor Tiger Families! 

We hope you are doing well and finding some fun things to do with your family as our Summer months start to slip away from us! We just wanted to communicate a few things with you as we are getting closer to the beginning of a new and interesting school year! We will do our best to send the most current information to you as we receive updates! 

Registration for the 2020-2021 School Year 

Just a reminder that school registration will open Monday, July 13th, and will go until July 30th. You will be able to access the link to register your child on the Taylor Website under the Registration tab or on the Nebo School District Website. 

You will be able to do absolutely everything regarding registration online; On our new platform Infinite Campus you will input or update your information, contacts, email addresses, phone numbers, etc., pay school donations ($25.00/student), pay for lunch. You will also need to make a choice for your child between At School Learning and Remote Learning. New families with students coming to Taylor, and kindergarten students will be able to scan and upload their information (proof of address, immunization records, and birth certificates) for registration. 

We will be able to have you  walk-in for registration as well, towards the end of July. More information will come soon for that. As always, you are welcome to call the office for online registration support any time M-Th 9:00am-1:00pm. We will have someone in the office during these hours who can walk you through the process (801) 465-6050 so you do not need to come in to the school. For your information, students will be able to find out who their teacher is the first part of August. We will let you know the exact date the district will be live for all elementary school placements! As you can imagine, balancing the remote learning registrations and face to face registrations will require us more time to place students in classes. 

Please remember to fill out the Free and Reduce Lunch Application.  Even if your student is planning to eat home lunch each day or you are doing Remote Learning, please fill this out.  The more applications that are completed and students qualify for free or reduce lunch, the more federal funding we will receive as a Title I school.  "On the go" lunches will be provided for Remote Learning students.  

Reopening Information 

Hopefully you all received the letter from our Superintendent. It outlines guidelines and requirements for students to safely return to school in August. I know there are many concerns and individual situations for both students and staff that need to be addressed. I want you to know that our staff and I are ready to teach, ready to help, ready to do what is best for students. While we may not have every answer to every question yet, we have the expertise of each teacher that knows children, knows curriculum, and knows how students learn. We will figure things out! These are challenging times for everyone, but we have taught our students that we can do hard things and we will reach our potential!

Our theme this year is “Hear Us R.O.A.R!” Reach your Potential, Own Up, Accept Everyone and Remember Who You Represent. Our teachers are planning to help students academically, physically, emotionally, mentally, and socially. It is important for students to be at school and learn face to face. If this can’t be done, we totally support the Nebo District remote learning choice that will follow State Standards and be taught by a certified teacher. We will gladly help you with that choice as well. It will take ALL of us to help each child and we can do it! We have wonderful families that have helped, and continue to help our school be the very place students want to be!

We are planning protocol for sanitizing, classroom set up, lunch, social distancing, and visitors, as well as breaks where students can be free from wearing their masks for a bit. We are doing all we can to keep students and staff safe. We want learning to take place and to be as normal as possible! Please have confidence in what we are doing and know that we are here for you! We love our students and can’t wait to be with them again!
