NORTH SUMMIT SCHOOL DISTRICT

WE BELIEVE PEOPLE ACCOMPLISH MORE WHEN THEY ARE INVOLVED AND INFORMED

  • PARENTS OF PRE-K STUDENTS

    It is time to plan for your preschool student’s immunizations prior to kindergarten entry. The Utah Department of Health has established the immunization requirements for the 2019-20 school year. We encourage you to have these immunizations completed and written verification back to the school before the end of the current school year.

     

    To attend kindergarten, a student must have written proof of receiving the following immunizations:

     

    • 5 Dtap/DT (4 doses of DTaP if the 4th dose given on/after the 4th birthday)
    • 4 Polio*(3 doses if 3rd dose was given on/after the 4th birthday)
    • 2 Measles, Mumps, Rubella
    • 3 Hepatitis B
    • 2 Hepatitis A
    • 2 Varicella (chickenpox) –history of disease acceptable, must submit a document signed by a healthcare provider to the school as proof of immunity

     

    For children whose parents claim an immunization exemption for medical, religious, or personal reasons, an immunization exemption form must be competed online and a certificate provided to the school.  Please go to www.immunize-utah.org to complete the online immunization education module.

     

    The Summit County Health Department is available on Tuesdays from 2:00-4:00 pm for immunization clinic. Please call 435 336-3234 to see if you qualify for immunization services, or you may wish to use your own healthcare provider.

Welcome

  • Our Focus is Student Learning

     

    Four foundational blocks drive our district when it comes to student learning: planned instruction, assessment, collaboration and intervention. Teachers are at their best when they are collaborating and working together with student learning at the forefront of their conversation. Teachers analyze data, they align curriculum, they discuss what is and what is not most important for students to learn, and they share ideas for better instructional delivery.

     

    When teachers collaborate, they work inside the boundaries of four basic questions:

    • What do we want students to learn?
    • How will we know if they have learned it?
    • How do we respond when students experience difficulty in learning?
    • How do we respond when students do learn?

    These questions keep teachers focused on student learning and best practices.

     

    There are many times when students struggle learning a concept even after all the creative lessons and reviews have been conducted. When students are struggling with a concept or a subject, they typically need more time or they may need the concept explained in a different way. Intervention allows the extra help to take place. Each of our buildings conducts their intervention plans differently, but they are in place, and our administrators are always looking for ways to improve that process. The most important thing for parents and students to remember is that intervention is not a punishment. It is an opportunity for students to receive additional help. It can and will make a difference in their learning.

    Our goal is to help more students reach grade level each year. Each year we research ways to improve our intervention model. We are in the process right now of looking at high school models for our older students. We get concerned when our “Danger of Failing” list gets bigger as the year progresses. With our commitment to do this and with parents providing a strong support system, our schools can continue to improve student learning, and we will all see the benefits of our hard work. We still can change the world in our small district, and we are willing to do it one student at a time.
