Third Grade Service Learning

Third grade students at Rose Creek recently tied three dozen lap size quilts to donate to the Primary Children's Hospital as a service learning activity. Each student in the third grade helped on one or more of the quilts. This has been a yearly project for the past five years and has continually grown. Twenty-five parents also volunteered by offering resources for the fabric and yarn or came in to help students with the tying of the quilts. Thank you to the teachers who provided the encouragement to students to help others.

Helium Balloon Safety on School Buses

As a reminder helium balloons on our buses are not allowed due to safety concerns. In the Standards for Utah School Buses and Operation, Page 127, Appendix 3, pupil rules, it reads:

-Pupils shall remain seated and keep aisles and exits clear,

-Pupils shall refrain from throwing or passing objects on from, or into buses,

-Pupils are permitted to carry only objects that can be held on one's lap,

-Pupils shall not carry hazardous materials, nuisance items, and animals onto the bus,

-Pupils shall respect the rights and safety of others.

Helium balloons can create a safety hazard when allowed on a bus and will not be allowed on the bus. Please make arrangements to pick up balloons from the school if your child rides a bus.

Thank you,

Snow Closure Guidelines

School Closure Guidelines
Emergency Communications Procedures
The following guidelines have been adopted by all 51 Jordan District schools.
Schools in Jordan School District will remain open, if at all possible, on all scheduled school days.
Even when weather conditions are extreme, every effort will be made to keep schools open in the
belief that it is in the best interest of the students. Since parents are the primary protector they will
need to decide what is right for their children. The option to keep children home when weather
conditions are extreme is always at the parents' discretion and the school understands and respects
the decision.
On occasion severe health or weather conditions may force school closures. The following infor-
mation outlines the communication procedures that will be followed if such school closures
become necessary.
1. Media Announcements
Parents and employees should listen to these designated radio or television stations for school clo-
sure information between the hours of 6-8 a.m. (If schools dismiss early, the media will air the
announcement as soon as possible.)
2. Listen for One of These Messages
One of the following messages will be aired by the news media:
* "Schools Will Be Closed" (day and date)
* "Schools Will Start Late" (day and date)
* "Schools Will Dismiss Early" (day and date)
3. Keep Phone Lines Free
Telephones will be used for emergencies; therefore, parents are asked not to call the schools or the
school District.
Radio Station
KSL—1160 AM or 102.7 FM
TV Stations
KUTV—Channel 2
KTVX—Channel 4
KSL—Channel 5
Fox-News—Channel 13
4. Closures Posted on the Web
School closure information will be posted by 6:30 a.m. on Jordan School District's Web site at
5. Authorized Statements
The media will only announce school closures when authorized by the Superintendent of Schools
or his designee after he has consulted with the Assistant Superintendent of Auxiliary Services, the
Transportation Director, the National Weather Service, and other state, county and city agencies.
6. Closures for One Day Only
All announcements are for one day only.
7. Normal Operation
No announcement means normal operation.
8. Parents Need An Emergency Plan
Parents are encouraged to establish an emergency plan for their children in the event that schools
are closed, start late or are dismissed early. Parents should instruct their children where to go or
what to do if a parent is not at home.
9. Bus Stops
Parents are asked to meet their students at bus stops when buses are running on delayed or emer-
gency schedules.
10. Make-up Days
The Utah State Office of Education requires a minimum of 180 instructional days of school. Days
lost will be made up first on the Washington and Lincoln Day Recess (Presidents' Day) and then
during Spring Recess. (As per District Policy D207-Calendar Development)
11. Late Start
When the District has designated a school day as “Schools Will Start Late,” the expectation is that
employees will arrive at their schools/departments at their regular contract time or as soon as the
employee can arrive safely.
Please contact the principal at your local school for additional information about these guidelines.
