Dear Parents/Guardians:

NEBO SCHOOL DISTRICT TO DISMISS SCHOOLS                     

As directed by the State of Utah, all public schools in Utah will dismiss beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, for two weeks in response to COVID-19. This is a proactive measure.

CONTINUED LEARNING

School “dismissal” means that Nebo employees will continue to be in the schools providing learning for students through online instruction and/or educational packets to continue student learning. Further communication about devices and materials will come from your school.

Educators in Nebo School District are working on plans to extend learning at home through online learning opportunities. The first of next week, teachers will be preparing online materials, and we anticipate instruction will begin Wednesday, March 18.

 More information will be made available to explain the details of the online platform as teachers use this time to prepare. Please watch for specific information from your child’s school and teacher(s).

MEALS FOR STUDENTS

In order to provide our Nebo students with “Grab and Go” meals, breakfast and lunch will be available for purchase at normal prices. Free/reduced meals are available for those who qualify.

QUICK FACTS

  • The school proactive dismissal for two weeks is meant to support social distancing and self-isolation to reduce the reach and spread of this virus. There will be no athletic or extracurricular practices or games during these two weeks. 
  • COVID-19 has rapidly changing dynamics and the school district administrative team is working with local health authorities to monitor the situation on a daily basis. 
  • Nebo will continue to publish updates at nebo.edu.
  • For further communication and specifics, contact your local school.
  • The Utah Health Department COVID-19 Hotline can be accessed at 1-800-456-7707. You can also receive Utah County Health updates by texting “UCHEALTH” to 888777 or the Utah County COVID-19 Helpline at 801-851-HELP (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.).

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Nebo School District values the health and well-being of our students, staff, and families. As you are aware, there are confirmed cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in Utah. We are not aware of any confirmed cases in our local community or schools.

Nebo District is working with local, state and national health agencies and experts on prevention and management in the event of an outbreak in our district. Nebo School District follows local, state, and national health care expert guidance and recommendations. We are sharing this information so you are aware and can help reduce the spread of infection.  The best ways to reduce the risk of getting this or any viral respiratory infection include:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces
  • Stay at home away from others if you are sick
  • Cover mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands
  • Do not bring your student to school or come to work at school if you have cold or flu-like symptoms (elevated temperature, fever, cough, shortness of breath).

The Utah Department of Health has extensive information on their website to address questions from the public. If you have questions regarding the Coronavirus, including how the virus is spread, and what to do if you have symptoms, you may want to visit the Utah Department of Health website:  https://health.utah.gov/

For the most up-to-date information, it is recommended that you visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.  You will be taken to their website if you click the following link:  https://www.cdc.gov/

Nebo School District takes this health risk very seriously. Nebo schools have been directed to increase prevention practices such as increased sanitation techniques and practices, monitoring of school sickness rates, and preparation for online schooling in the event that a school is closed.  Out-of-state travel has been cancelled beginning immediately for at least two weeks, as per request of the State’s Coronavirus Task Force.  Other school travel is also being reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

School dismissal or closure is under the direction of the Utah County Board of Health.  Nebo School District is working very closely with the County Board of Health to safeguard students, staff, and communities of Nebo School District.

If cases of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) are confirmed in our community or in connection to our schools, we will immediately notify families and employees while taking the steps necessary to minimize the impact in our schools and communities.  For additional information regarding how Nebo School District is addressing COVID-19, including the most recent updates, please visit our website at http://www.nebo.edu/.

Thank you for your support and patience as we maneuver through the complexities of how to address this community challenge.

4th Grade Spends a day at the State Capitol

Fourth Graders got to go on a fun field trip to the State Capitol. In fourth grade you study and learn all about Utah. Going to the State Capitol helps students actually see how things work. They learned lots about what takes place in the State Capitol, who works there, the history about it, and all of the hard work people put in there.

They even got the chance to meet, listen to, and talk to Senator Henderson. Deidre M. Henderson is a politician elected to her first political position as a Republican member of the Utah State Senate. This was such a neat experience for the students.

Kindergarten students went on a field trip to the Ancient Life Museum at Thanksgiving Point. They learned about rocks, fossils, dinosaurs, and even got some practice coding! Thank you to Thanksgiving Point and their donors for sponsoring our kindergarten field trip through their scholarship program.

Parents,

Today your student was sent home with an envelope for our Fundraiser.  You are welcome to donate any amount of money.  We are asking that ALL students bring back the envelope, money in it or not.  The class with the most envelopes returned by Friday, March 6th will get a Root Beer Float Party!  We will be using these donations to purchase Ipad Pros for our teachers to enhance their instruction and student engagement.
