Principal's Message, June 7

MASKS
Starting June 1st, masks will not be required in Jordan District schools. Anyone who wishes to continue wearing a mask is encouraged to do so.

MOVE UP EVENT
Because so many of our students and teachers are currently doing online classes, we will not be able to coordinate the logistics of a move up event this year. Instead, families will receive a letter in the mail in July with information about which classes their students are assigned to for next school year.

SUMMER MEALS
We will be serving free meals to all children ages 18 and under throughout the summer. Meals will be served from 11:30-12:30, Monday through Friday, from June 7-August 6 (no meals will be served Monday, July 5 and Friday, July 23). Lunch will be eaten in-person in the cafeteria, and breakfast will be to go for the next day. Adults may purchase meals for $2/breakfast and $3.30/lunch. See more information HERE. Summer Feed Menu available HERE.

SUMMER SCHOOL
Our teachers have been busy creating a summer school experience for some of our students this June. If you’re interested in adding your student’s name to a waiting list, please reach out to the teachers listed below. Classes will be held Monday-Friday, June 14-25, from 9:00-12:00. Busing will be available for all students. You would need to commit to at least 8 days of attendance in order to be admitted.

2021-2022 JORDAN VIRTUAL LEARNING ACADEMY
Please remember that at the end of the current school year, online classes connected to Oquirrh Elementary will be ending. If you’re interested in continuing online classes for next school year, you will need to enroll your students in Rocky Peak Virtual Elementary and withdraw them from Oquirrh.

If you’re interested in enrolling your students in Rocky Peak Virtual Elementary, now is the time to complete the pre-registration form at the link HERE.

See this FLYER and another WEBSITE for more information about this exciting new opportunity!

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION
It’s time for Kindergarten registration for the 2021-2022 school year! If you have a child who will be five years old on or before September 1, 2021, they will qualify for next year’s kindergarten classes. Please complete online registration for them as soon as possible. See more information HERE. The number of students who register now determines the number of teachers and the number of full and half day classes Oquirrh will be allowed to have for next year. It’s important that we get an accurate count now, because next year’s staffing decisions will begin happening at the end of February. If you know someone who lives in our school boundaries and has a child that will qualify for kindergarten classes next year, please share this information and encourage them to register their children at this time.

WELLNESS CENTER and MOVE THIS WORLD
Oquirrh opened a fully-staffed Wellness Center in August 2019! Watch a short introduction video HERE to see more about how it works. A 10-minute visit to the Wellness Center gives all students an opportunity to regroup, recharge, and proactively manage their emotions in healthy ways. We understand that learning can be hard work and sometimes the social-emotional part of a child's day can be especially challenging. A trip to the Wellness Center can provide needed support and a safe place for students to prepare to get back to work in their job as students and friends in our school community. Check out THIS WEBSITE to see more information about Move this World, a program we use to help our students learn how to develop emotional intelligence for long-term wellbeing.

FREE MEALS
We wanted to remind you that breakfast and lunch are free for all students for the rest of the school year or until federal funding runs out. Breakfast is served from 7:30-8:00 Monday through Thursday. Lunch is served to online students and their siblings ages 18 and younger from 12:00-12:30 Monday through Thursday. All students can pick up a breakfast and lunch to go on Fridays from 12:00-12:30. Please enter the doors on the South side of the building between the cafeteria and gym to pick up your meals.

TITLE I INFORMATION
It’s time to send out our annual information about our school’s Title I plan and what the extra funding means at our school. Please see more information HERE.

CURBSIDE CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT
At the beginning of the school year, we started curbside check-in and check-out! If you’re bringing your child to school late or picking them up early, just park by the flagpole and give our office a call at 801-565-7474. We will come to you! If you’re checking a student out, we will check your phone number in Skyward and ask you for your student’s lunch number before bringing your student to the car.

SKYWARD FAMILY ACCESS
You can update family information, add emergency contacts, pay lunch money, and check students’ attendance and grades. Please see English instructions here and Spanish instructions here.

If you need computer access or assistance using Skyward Family Access, please visit our front office. We have a computer set up just for this purpose. Our secretaries can also send you an account reset link if you’ve forgotten your username and password. Just give us a call at 801-565-7474, and we’ll be happy to help.

PTA
2021-22 PTA Memberships are available for $5 in the school office or by electronic membership payments. This is a great way to help support our school to help fund field trips and extra curricular activities for our students.

Thank you for your continued support. Please let us know what questions you may have by calling our office at 801-565-7474 from 8:00-3:00, Monday-Friday.
