Dear Parent or Guardian:

 We hope you and your family are enjoying a fun and restful summer. As you may know, the Utah State Board of Education gave local school boards the autonomy to determine the best use of school time for the 2021-2022 school year. Based on the feedback we received from teachers and parents, our Board allowed us to modify school schedules to facilitate sustained professional growth opportunities for educators. As we return to school this fall, each student’s school day will be shortened by 20 minutes in order to increase professional development time and facilitate more frequent collaborative opportunities within our school. We are excited for the additional 100 minutes per week that will be utilized to support our teachers’ professional growth!

We know that you may be worried about the loss of instructional time for your student. We understand that. But, we truly believe that as our teachers become more adept and skilled at seamlessly integrating technology and digital resources into the best practices they have already developed, we can more effectively personalize learning for every student. In the end, we believe this additional time can enrich and improve teaching and learning in ways that benefit every child

As I work with our school’s educators, leaders, students, community council and parent organizations, we will determine the greatest areas of need for our students. Elements that may be addressed in the additional time could be:

  • Professional learning and professional growth - particularly around blended learning, differentiated/personalized learning, social-emotional learning and restorative practices
  • Reflection on practice
  • Implementation of new instruction and assessment strategies
  • Meaningful collaboration
  • Evaluation of student data
  • Other school-based initiatives I really look forward to the excitement and possibilities of a new school year. We thank you for your ongoing support of our school and educators

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.

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.

Concerns have been raised about safety issues taking place in our parking lots. (e.g. dropping kids off in the wrong lane, vehicles moving too quickly, moving into and out of the drop-off/pick-up lane rather than pulling forward, using the faculty parking lot instead of the east or west parking lots.)  Please review the parking lot procedures below for the safety of all students and adults. 

 

PARKING LOT PROCEDURES

Please follow these important rules while picking up and dropping off your precious children at Freedom Elementary.

 

1.  The East and West Parking Lots are for parent use.  

  • Loading Zone (Drop-off/Pick-up Lane) *
  • Curbside loading and unloading ONLY (students should always exit and enter their vehicle from the doors next to the sidewalk) 
  • NO parking or leaving vehicle NOT for pick-up or drop-off, but only for driving through the parking lot
  • Drive cautiously and slowly, always watching for pedestrians that may be crossing
  • Students must ALWAYS be accompanied by an adult when walking across t
  • To keep the line moving quickly, pull all the way forward before dropping off or picking up your students (For drop-off, students should be ready to exit the vehicle when you stop.) 
  • Drive Through Lane * 
  • The street or parking lot
  • Red zones* are fire lane and tow away zones
  • Do not park or drop-off/pick-up in these zones

2.  The Faculty Parking Lot is for teacher and handicap parking.  It also contains our bus zone. 

  • Bus zone* is for buses and school approved daycare providers ONLY

3.  Be a Good Neighbor—blocking driveways or ignoring signage in the neighborhood by the catwalk may result in a citation.

Please also keep in mind the safety and respect of our staff and teachers as they help monitor and supervise children when they are being picked up and dropped off.

Thanks for helping us keep students safe!
