SHARP survey: Every two years the State of Utah works with local county health officials to administer a survey called the Student Health and Risk Prevention (SHARP) survey. Results from local school districts are compared across Utah and the nation to measure protective factors and risk factors impacting our students. We are asking our 10th and 12th graders to participate in May. The data we will receive helps us guide services we design for students. We want to help them navigate an interesting world and make decisions that will help them be healthy, both physically and mentally, as they progress through high school and beyond. Please sign the permission form coming to you that will allow your student to take part. Thank you!
Assembly: On May 5th we will be having our monthly assembly presented by the Health Department. They will be talking about Smoking and Vaping. This assembly will be virtual, and we encourage all our students to attend; parents are also welcome. The Zoom link will be sent out as the assembly gets closer.
SCC Meeting: The final SCC meeting for the school year will be May 10th at 5:30 pm via Zoom.

RI Freeze: On May 11th there will be a testing day. No class meetings will be held so students can complete the RI, STAR Reading, and STAR Math tests. All students are required to take these tests.
