LOST AND FOUND
The Lost and Found bin in the cafeteria is currently overflowing. Please take a moment during Parent/Teacher Conferences to look for items your student may have left here since our last parent/teacher conferences. Larger items will be in the main kiva and smaller items will be in the office. Any items not claimed will be donated to a charity.
With the weather turning cold and the snow coming in, it becomes very difficult to change the information on our outside marquee. With so many other ways to get information out to
parents and students, we have determined to avoid using the marquee during the winter
months. Please refer to our school's website, magnetic calendar, newsletters, text messages,
and/or mass emails for uncoming events and important information. If you have questions
about accessing these other methods, please contact the office at 801-452-4100.
As part of our ongoing efforts to ensure student safety at Freedom Elementary we are requiring identification for all visitors. Upon checking in at the office please be prepared to show photo identification.
