Hi Parents of 5th & 6th Grade Students,

Due to unfortunate circumstances involving the highly contagious Coronavirus,
America’s Freedom Festival is canceling the 2020 performances of the Hope of
America at the Marriott Center.

We are taking this precautionary measure because your safety and welfare are our main concern.

We are excitedly planning for 2021, the 25 Year Anniversary which marks the Jubilee year of the Hope of America!!! We appreciate the work that this year’s fifth graders and teachers have put into this program. To be sure that they won’t miss out on this incredible experience we are inviting them to perform with next year’s fifth graders in the Hope of America production at the Marriott Center. We will have a combined 5th and 6th grade chorus for our Jubilee year.

We are currently working on a refund procedure. 

Sincerely,
Sherry Anderson, Director
Sherry Peterson, America’s Freedom Festival Board of Trustees sherry@freedomfestival.org

Dear Parents/Guardians:

This letter, dated March 15, is a follow up to the Nebo District letter dated March 13, and other letters that have been sent from your child’s school.  It is intended to provide clarification regarding some general questions that have been circulating.  Please help us to ensure that all parents, guardians, grandparents, or caregivers who provide student support are aware of this information.

NEBO SCHOOL DISTRICT TO DISMISS SCHOOLS -- Repeat                 

As directed by the State of Utah, all public schools in Utah will dismiss beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, for two weeks in response to COVID-19. This is a proactive measure.

CONTINUED “AT-HOME” LEARNING -- Repeat

“Soft closure” or school “dismissal” means that Nebo employees will continue to provide learning for students through online instruction and/or educational packets to continue student learning. Further communication about devices and materials will come from your school.

Educators in Nebo School District will be working on March 16-17 to prepare online materials and/or packets and we anticipate instruction will begin Wednesday, March 18.  Please watch for specific information from your child’s school and teacher(s).

Thank you for your continued support as we navigate through these unprecedented educational times.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

MEALS FOR STUDENTS

Updated March 15 – Students can go to any school in the District to pick up meals beginning Monday, March 16.

In order to provide our Nebo students with “Grab and Go” meals, breakfast and lunch will be available for purchase at normal prices. Free/reduced meals are available for those who qualify.  Breakfast may be picked up between 8:00-9:00 a.m. and does not need to be pre-ordered.  Lunch may be picked up between 11:00-12:00 and should be pre-ordered each day using the phone number and order deadline provided by the individual school. 

CHILD CARE NOT PROVIDED

 

Clarification from the Governor’s Office:  At Friday’s news conference, “Gov. Gary R. Herbert mentioned that during public school’s two-week dismissal, parents who are unable to be home with children will have the option to bring them to school to be supervised by teachers. This is not the case

 

“School campuses will remain open for the next two weeks so students can retrieve personal items or pick up assignments from their instructors. Some instructors may be available for brief one-on-one tutoring or to help answer student questions about their assignments. It is important to note that schools will not provide childcare of any kind.” (see www.nebo.edu for full official statement)

 

STUDENTS AT THE SCHOOL

 

Other than for picking up “grab and go” meals, students can be at the school by invitation only.  If they need to come and pick up items from the classroom, desk, or locker, they should contact the school to make arrangements.  Any individual tutoring or small group instruction plans will be coordinated by the school. 

 

STUDENTS AT THE SCHOOL – PART 2

 

Parents always have the right to determine that their child should not come to the school, even if invited for specific services or instruction.  As always, students and others should refrain from coming to the school if they are sick or have been in direct contact with those who are sick with the virus.

 

BUSES

 

At this time a limited number of buses may be seen driving in your communities.  These buses are on specific assignments and are not for the general student population.  Please don’t mistake the presence of buses as a signal that schools are in session.

 

ACTIVITIES

There will be no extracurricular activities, practices, games, or performances during these two weeks (see www.nebo.edu for official statement).

QUICK FACTS -- Repeat

  • Information is changing almost daily.  For the most current and accurate Nebo District information and communication, contact your local school and/or check the Nebo District website at www.nebo.edu.
  • The school proactive dismissal for two weeks is meant to support social distancing and self-isolation to reduce the reach and spread of this virus.
  • COVID-19 has rapidly changing dynamics and the school district administrative team is working with local health authorities to monitor the situation on a daily basis. 
  • The Utah Health Department COVID-19 Hotline can be accessed at 1-800-456-7707. You can also receive Utah County Health updates by texting “UCHEALTH” to 888777 or the Utah County COVID-19 Helpline at 801-851-HELP (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.).

State Issues Clarification on K-12 Dismissal

Submitted by tiffany.manwaring on Sun, 03/15/2020 - 12:54

State Issues Clarification on K-12 Dismissal

SALT LAKE CITY (March 14, 2020) - At a news conference yesterday afternoon, Gov. Gary R.  Herbert mentioned that during public school’s two-week dismissal, parents who are unable to be home with children will have the option to bring them to school to be supervised by teachers. This is not the case.

School campuses will remain open for the next two weeks so students can retrieve personal items or pick up assignments from their instructors. Some instructors may be available for brief one-on-one tutoring or to help answer student questions about their assignments. It is important to note that schools will not provide childcare of any kind.

During this period, meal services to students will still be available. In many instances, this is a grab-and-go lunch or breakfast program. These options will vary by school, designed to meet the unique needs of the local school community.

Families should look to local districts and charters for information on specific services available during the two-week dismissal.

Message from Mr. Andersen - Plan Going Forward

Submitted by tiffany.manwaring on Fri, 03/13/2020 - 21:07

Dear Parents, 

As you have likely heard, today the governors office dismissed school for the next two weeks, beginning on Monday, March 16th. This is a big change from the press conference and direction we were given just yesterday. This is a dynamic, constantly evolving situation that we are navigating the best we can. 

I am at this moment (Friday evening, 7:00 pm) at the district office attending meetings where decisions are in progress about what this will look like for all of us. 

As soon as I am able, I will send out detailed information to all parents and will need your help to spread the word about this dismissal. 

The tentative plan will be that teachers will need Monday and Tuesday to prepare At Home Learning opportunities for your students. This may include online learning, use of computer programs such as iReady, Raz-Kids, Imagine Learning and physical work packets that can be picked up at school. We will be sending out a lot more information about this over the next few days. We are hoping to have things up and ready by Wednesday to begin this new learning format. 

We are also discussing how to provide Grab & Go breakfast and lunch options for students who may need meals during this dismissal. THIS WILL BEGIN ON MONDAY. Parents can call in to the school to let us know if your child would like a breakfast or a lunch or both (801-798-4480). Breakfast will be available from 8-9 am and lunch from 11 am-12 pm. The child will be charged for the meal just as they would on a regular day. Those on free or reduced lunch will continue to receive that service as normal. Students can pick up their meals at school and take them back home to eat. The school lunchroom will NOT be open. 

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING. This situation is unprecedented and will require flexibility from all of us. However, I want to reassure our school community that an army of committed teachers, technicians and support staff will begin Monday morning to figure this all out. WE'VE GOT THIS! We love your kids and want to keep everyone safe and healthy through this crisis. 

You will be hearing from the school first thing Monday morning with more direction. 

Mr. Andersen
