Our goal for our Back to School event on Mon, Aug 24th and Tue, Aug 25th is to mitigate as many safety risks as possible.  As such, we asking the following of each family:

  • Parents and students should attend while leaving all other family members at home, where possible. Each person is required to wear a face mask on campus. (see Mask Mandate below)
  • Parents should park in the east or west parking lot and walk around the playground to the back door of your child’s classroom. Remain outside until the teacher opens the door for your appointment. (Find your child’s assigned teacher and schedule a Back to School appointment through your MyWeber parent portal account. From the home page click on Tools > Parent/Teacher Conferences)
  • Avoid walking through the school, unless it is to pay for lunch through the cafeteria or office. (The district strongly recommends paying online through your MyWeber parent portal account.)

If the change in mask requirements affects how parents feel about in-person learning, please contact the school office at 801-452-4100.  There is still time to choose an alternative learning option, such as Long Term Flexible Learning, which is a quarter by quarter choice to learn online or in person.

The Utah Department of Health has issued a public health order clarifying standards for face coverings in schools. The order specifies that every person on school property, or on a school bus, must wear a face mask that covers the nose and mouth.

State officials say face masks must be worn, even when an individual is able to physically distance, except in very limited circumstances. Face shields may only be worn WITHOUT a face mask by those with documented disabilities and the hard of hearing (see State Public Health Order, Section 3).  Anyone meeting either of those criteria will need to contact Principal Lott at This email address is being protected from spambots.

As many of you may have heard, elementary schools are not providing traditional suggested
supply lists due to the unique circumstances of this year. We just recently removed the lists
that were provided at the end of last school year from our website. Although households
should never feel obligated to provide school supplies, we realize some families may have
already purchased items from the lists that were previously posted. If so, you may still donate
those supplies as you see fit. For others that may also wish to help us by donating supplies to
be used at school, common items that may be donated include:


 Headphones/Earbuds for Chromebook use (Grades 1st-6th)
 Hand sanitizer
 Tissues
 Paper towels
 Clorox or Lysol Wipes
 Child-size masks
 Empty spray bottles


We appreciate all the support you have given and continue to give as we work through this
unique time. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact the office
at 801-452-4100.

Parents,

I know you must have many, many questions regarding the 2020-2021 school year.  If you have not already done so, I would urge you to look through the “SAFE WEBER - A Responsive Framework to COVID-19” document which can be found on the School District website (click here: SAFE WEBER)

This framework, which is organized into three different levels-Moderate, Enhanced, and Intensive-will guide us through the school year as we address precautions related to Facility Sanitation, Personal Protection and Hygiene, Distancing and Social Gatherings, Recognizing and Completing Unfinished Learning, and Digital Design and Delivery.  Most of your questions and concerns can be answered by this document.

We are planning for face-to-face instruction in the fall under Moderate Precautions, as outlined in the framework, and we are busy preparing for the return of students in August.  In-person learning offers the richest learning experiences to develop the whole child.  At Freedom Elementary, in addition to core academics, Social-Emotional Learning, Visual and Fine Arts lessons and experiences, associating with peers, multiple tiers of support, individualized instruction, and many other enrichment activities will be included in your child’s day.

 In the event of health concerns, short-term flexible learning options will be available for students to learn from home.  These online learning experiences are designed to help students keep pace with their classmates while out of school for a short time.  The online learning experiences are limited to essential skills and include very limited teacher-student interaction.  Other district options may be available for remote learning, as well.  Please feel free to reach out to me for further information. (801-452-4105)

Prior to coming back to school in August, we will have prepared thorough classroom and school level plans to mitigate risk and address the safety of students and staff.  As you are aware, things are pretty changeable during these unprecedented times.  However, we will do our best to keep you informed as we make these preparations and implement any changes to our policies and procedures.

Stay tuned for more information in the weeks to come, including updated Back to School Night information, as well as what you can expect regarding practical matters such as face coverings, before and after school procedures, etc.

More than anything, we want you to know how much we miss your kids and that we are looking forward to being together again as a school community and that we are doing everything within our power to make this happen.

Kind regards,

Mr. Lott

Please take a moment to go into your MyWeber parent portal account at myweber.wsd.net and check your student’s lunch balance.  If it is negative, please make a payment to bring the balance to $.00.  You can do this through the portal or by contacting the school office at 801-452-4100 to make a credit card payment over the phone.  (Fyi, the portal online credit card fee has been lowered to $1 for the whole transaction.  If you are paying for multiple children, it will still be $1.) 

If your family is planning on moving out of Freedom’s boundaries before August 2020, or if you know your student will not be returning for the 2020-2021 school year, please reply to this email with the following information: 

1. Student’s Name  2. Teacher’s Name  3. Current Grade  4. Name of the New School Attending in 2020-21.  (If not certain of the school name, please provide the city and state where they will be attending.)  Those with more than one student, please list the information for each one.
