Beginning on Monday September 21st, school lunch will be offered free to ALL STUDENTS who are currently enrolled in the North Summit School District. If your child eats school lunch, you will not have to pay. This benefit also includes students who selected the district’s online option for at home learning. 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.
November Newsletter 2020
We just finished up our first quarter of school, and I am extremely pleased with the efforts made by our staff to make our opening plan a success. At the date of this newsletter, we have had one student and three staff members test positive for COVID-19. As a result of those cases, 16 students were placed in quarantine. We have also had 5 students placed in quarantine because of exposure outside of the school setting. Those numbers are phenomenal compared to other districts. While we don’t want even one person to be isolated or quarantined, we have to feel fortunate that we have not had more impacted by this virus.
As we enter the winter season, we realize that sickness is inevitable. I would emphasize again the importance of staying home when we are sick with symptoms related to the virus. I am more convinced than ever before of the importance of in-person learning for our students. While we are prepared and ready to serve our students remotely, the vast majority of our students need the experience of being in school for their learning, their socialization, and for their participation in activities. We will continue to do our best to follow the plan that we set up in July. We will make changes as necessary, but most importantly, we remind everyone to continue following the protocols put in place. Thanks go out to our communities for supporting our efforts in this tough time. Our students are the benefactors of the commitments made to have them in school.
