Like you, we are just learning that Governor Gary R. Herbert, State Superintendent Syd Dickson, and the Utah State Board of Education “announced today that Utah’s K-12 public schools will extend their dismissal [soft closure] through Friday, May 1st.” Their press release further stated that they will “continue to evaluate the situation to make a determination about the remaining school year” and that:
The Sage Creek kitchen is still open! Any student can get breakfast or lunch here 8-9am and 11am-12pm. Paying students or those that qualify for free/reduced meals can come by - we'd love to see you! Also, the district has opened up other sites for ANY student to obtain a free breakfast and lunch at the following sites (you may have to click "Read More" to view) whether or not students qualify for free/reduced. The student must be in attendance at these designated free meal sites.
Can you please complete this brief survey to help us anticipate what we will need to have prepared for you? The survey is in English and Spanish. Also, remember a letter with detailed information with our school online/distance learning plan will be sent home Tuesday afternoon (17th). Thank you!

NEBO SCHOOL DISTRICT TO DISMISS SCHOOLS
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.
School “dismissal” means that Nebo employees will continue to be in the schools providing 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.
