Beginning on Monday September 21st, school lunch will be offered free to ALL STUDENTS who are currently enrolled in the North Summit School District.

Please contact Robin Wilde or Colleen Pace to arrange for pick-up at 435-336-5678. This is a continuation of a Federal Covid-19 subsidy that could continue through December 31st or until the money runs out.
January Newsletter 2021
With 2021 now upon us, we at North Summit School District are proud of the many good things happening, and we are more determined than ever to fulfill our commitment to the students in each of our schools. We have learned a lot of things in the past year with COVID-19 as our major challenge. We have found that we can do a good job of remote teaching, but we have learned that it takes the students and the parents to make it work properly. When students join our Google classrooms and rid themselves of all the distractions, they can be successful. For most students, this is a difficult thing to do. We are convinced more than ever of the value of in person learning, and we are proud of all those who have taken advantage of the efforts made to open our buildings. For those who are unable to attend, we encourage you to stay focused on your teachers as they provide instruction. We also admonish you to stay caught up with your homework.
We see the potential in all of our kids and want them to reach as far as they can. We have a great staff of adults who genuinely care for students. I admire our teachers and support staff for their efforts and their dedication to their professions. We also have supportive parents and grandparents who understand the importance of the educational experience, and we are appreciative of their support. Our school board is also a great team of people who make decisions based on doing the best for kids. They are truly representing their precincts well, and they are in it for the right reason. I am proud and honored to work for them and for all of you, the patrons of North Summit School District.
Several of our patrons volunteer on various committees in each of the schools and contribute a great deal to our progress. Our faithful PTO volunteers are strong and provide great support to the staffs in each building. This is a great organization that we all should support. We also have a Trust Land program driven by a community council, which consists of parents and teachers. Each school has a council, and these councils are responsible for the disbursement of approximately $90,000 to $110,000 per year. This money is directed to academic programs for the benefit of students. They are diligent in using the money in the most effective and efficient ways possible.
We are excited that our students are able to participate in after school activities. A lot of work has gone into making that happen. We are sad that our student body and our grandparents and other family members do not get to attend our high school games. We are happy that parents do get to see their kids play. As we continue to provide opportunities for our kids to participate in various activities, please help us maintain these programs by abiding by the protocols put in place. It isn’t easy, but it is worth every effort to have our students doing what they deserve to do.
