Dear Parents/Guardians:

This letter, dated March 15, is a follow up to the Nebo District letter dated March 13, and other letters that have been sent from your child’s school.  It is intended to provide clarification regarding some general questions that have been circulating.  Please help us to ensure that all parents, guardians, grandparents, or caregivers who provide student support are aware of this information.

NEBO SCHOOL DISTRICT TO DISMISS SCHOOLS -- Repeat                 

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 “AT-HOME” LEARNING -- Repeat

“Soft closure” or school “dismissal” means that Nebo employees will continue to provide 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 will be working on March 16-17 to prepare online materials and/or packets and we anticipate instruction will begin Wednesday, March 18.  Please watch for specific information from your child’s school and teacher(s).

Thank you for your continued support as we navigate through these unprecedented educational times.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

MEALS FOR STUDENTS

Updated March 15 – Students can go to any school in the District to pick up meals beginning Monday, March 16.

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.  Breakfast may be picked up between 8:00-9:00 a.m. and does not need to be pre-ordered.  Lunch may be picked up between 11:00-12:00 and should be pre-ordered each day using the phone number and order deadline provided by the individual school. 

CHILD CARE NOT PROVIDED

 

Clarification from the Governor’s Office:  At Friday’s news conference, “Gov. Gary R. Herbert mentioned that during public school’s two-week dismissal, parents who are unable to be home with children will have the option to bring them to school to be supervised by teachers. This is not the case

 

“School campuses will remain open for the next two weeks so students can retrieve personal items or pick up assignments from their instructors. Some instructors may be available for brief one-on-one tutoring or to help answer student questions about their assignments. It is important to note that schools will not provide childcare of any kind.” (see www.nebo.edu for full official statement)

 

STUDENTS AT THE SCHOOL

 

Other than for picking up “grab and go” meals, students can be at the school by invitation only.  If they need to come and pick up items from the classroom, desk, or locker, they should contact the school to make arrangements.  Any individual tutoring or small group instruction plans will be coordinated by the school. 

 

STUDENTS AT THE SCHOOL – PART 2

 

Parents always have the right to determine that their child should not come to the school, even if invited for specific services or instruction.  As always, students and others should refrain from coming to the school if they are sick or have been in direct contact with those who are sick with the virus.

 

BUSES

 

At this time a limited number of buses may be seen driving in your communities.  These buses are on specific assignments and are not for the general student population.  Please don’t mistake the presence of buses as a signal that schools are in session.

 

ACTIVITIES

There will be no extracurricular activities, practices, games, or performances during these two weeks (see www.nebo.edu for official statement).

QUICK FACTS -- Repeat

State issues clarification on K-12 dismissal

 

SALT LAKE CITY (March 14, 2020) - At a news conference yesterday afternoon, Gov. Gary R. Herbert mentioned that during public school’s two-week dismissal, parents who are unable to be home with children will have the option to bring them to school to be supervised by teachers. This is not the case. 

 

School campuses will remain open for the next two weeks so students can retrieve personal items or pick up assignments from their instructors. Some instructors may be available for brief one-on-one tutoring or to help answer student questions about their assignments. It is important to note that schools will not provide childcare of any kind. 

 

During this period, meal services to students will still be available. In many instances, this is a grab-and-go lunch or breakfast program. These options will vary by school, designed to meet the unique needs of the local school community. 

 

Families should look to local districts and charters for information on specific services available during the two-week dismissal.

Home Learning and Instruction will begin on Wednesday, March 18th, more details will be coming in the next couple of days.  Please do not come to the school unless you have an appointment or are getting a "Grab and Go" breakfast or lunch.

Please email me if you are unable to fill the survey out and I will send it to you directly.  Once again, please talk to your neighbors to assure they received this information.  It will take the whole wonderful Taylor Community to make this work.

School Dismissal Information

Submitted by billi.robbins on Fri, 03/13/2020 - 21:34

Dear Parents, As you have likely heard, today the governor's office dismissed school for the next two weeks, beginning on Monday, March 16th. This is a big change from the press conference and direction we were given just yesterday. This is a dynamic, constantly evolving situation that we are navigating the best we can. I am at this moment (Friday evening, 7:30 pm) at the district office attending meetings where decisions are in progress about what this will look like for all of us. As soon as I am able, I will send out detailed information to all parents and will need your help to spread the word about this dismissal. The tentative plan will be that teachers will need Monday and Tuesday to prepare At Home Learning opportunities for your students. This may include online learning, use of computer programs such as iReady, Imagine Learning and physical work packets that can be picked up at school. We will be sending out a lot more information about this over the next few days. We are hoping to have things up and ready by Wednesday to begin this new learning format.   We are also discussing how to provide Grab & Go breakfast and lunch options for students who may need meals during this dismissal. THIS WILL BEGIN ON MONDAY. Parents can call in to the school to let us know if your child would like a lunch. Breakfast will be available from 8-9 am and lunch from 11 am-12 pm. The child will be charged for the meal just as they would on a regular day. Those on free or reduced lunch will continue to receive that service as normal. Students can pick up their meals at school and take them back home to eat. The school lunchroom will NOT be open. I will continue to work out the details for our students and will continue to communicate to you as much as possible.  I ask that you please check with your neighbors and make sure they are receiving these emails.  If they are not, we will need to make sure they have the correct email address in Aspire.   THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING. This situation is unprecedented and will require flexibility from all of us. However, I want to reassure our school community that an army of committed teachers, technicians and support staff will begin Monday morning to figure this all out. WE'VE GOT THIS! We love your kids and want to keep everyone safe and healthy through this crisis. Sincerely,Mrs. Robbins

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.
