 Week of March 23-27, 2020

Thank you for your continued commitment to helping your children engage in content online. Teachers have been working diligently to not only build new content, but also respond and give feedback when they can, in an effort to keep the kids engaged. As students have issues questions about online learning please encourage them to message their teacher in canvas, or parents can email teachers with questions as well. WE need to continue to work together and lean on each other as much as possible, to do what we think is best and to best support our students/your kids during this unique and challenging time. We love our students. We care about our students. We miss them tremendously.

Home Learning

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Governor Gary Herbert announced that all public schools in Utah will be dismissed beginning Monday, March 16, for a period of two weeks. This is a pre-emptive measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

This means Jordan School District schools will not be in session and no students will attend in person from March 16 – 29.

Breakfast and Lunch will continue to be available for pick-up only starting Wednesday, March 18, 2020.

  • A grab-and-go breakfast can be picked up  from 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. 
  • A grab-and-go lunch can be picked up  from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
  • Students must return home after receiving their meal as we are practicing social distancing.

Breakfast and Lunch grab-and-gos will be given out on the west side of the building (cafeteria doors) where students usually line up for breakfast in the morning. The cost of the meals will remain the same.

Student Learning Will Continue at Home

  • Monday, March 16 and Tuesday, March 17 will be used as planning days for teachers and staff to further prepare for at-home learning.
  • Teachers will contact parents via text or email with his/her plan and expectations  Tuesday afternoon, March 17. At home learning will begin on Wednesday, March 18.
  • For students who do not have access to a device at home, please contact your child’s teacher to inform him/her. Teachers will provide information regarding device checkouts. 
  • Families without internet access should contact your child’s teacher. Teachers will prepare hard copy materials for students.
  • Teachers will inform you if you have materials to pick up at the school such as textbooks, printed materials, etc. The governor has asked the public to limit the amount of people in areas at one time. Please pick up your child’s materials during your designated time below. Materials can be picked up in the front hall of the main office. Grade level teachers will be in that area during their designated grade level time to issue out any materials if needed. If you have children in different grade levels, please attend your oldest child’s designated time. Inform your younger child’s teacher of the time you will be there so your younger child’s teacher can make arrangements to give your older child’s teacher the materials, if any.

Kindergarten Registration 2020 - 2021

Dear Parents,

It is important that we obtain an accurate list of all children qualifying for Kindergarten in the Jordan School District for the 2020 - 2021 school year. If you have a child that will be five years of age on or before September 1, 2020, the child qualifies for next year's kindergarten program. State law requires that all school districts in Utah abide by the same September 1st entrance cut-off date. You will be required to bring the child's immunization record, a certified birth certificate, at least two forms of proof of residency, and a guardian picture identification when you come into the school to finish the registration process.

Orientation will be held in the Spring.

If you know of a neighbor that has a qualifying kindergarten child, please share this information with them. Ask them to call the school and register their child.

If you have any questions, please call the school at 801-963-0291.

Be a Bully Blocker!

At Mountain Shadows we want our students to feel safe and accepted while at school and help them feel secure and mindful of others.  Which is one of the reasons that we take bullying very seriously.  Prior to the start of the school year, (August 15, 2018) our teachers attend a Professional Development that instructed them in ways to help students- either those who are being bullied, or those who want to report bullying behavior that may be happening either in class or on the playground.   We adopted a program called Bully Blockers, and teachers are teaching anti-bullying skills in their classrooms each week.  We also use a variety of books that are shared with students and spark interactive discussions about different aspects of bullying.  We hope students will come to understand  what bullying is, and how to stop bullying.  When discussing bullying at home, please keep these thoughts in mind.

Bullying is one-sided, intentional, and repeated.
Bullying is when someone purposely hurts, frightens, or threatens someone.
Bullying is when someone purposely leaves out, ridicules, spreads rumors, or makes offensive comments to someone else. 

Bully Blocker Pledge

I agree to not BULLY other students.
I will help students who are BULLIED by speaking out and getting adult help.
I will include students who are left out.
