  • Injury and Illnesses

    A school staff member who is trained in basic first aid will manage illness or injury to a student while at school. Minor injuries will be given first aid in the school. If possible, the student will return to class when indicated. The office staff will assist the student with a telephone call to the parent if necessary. Parents will be notified with a telephone call in cases of illness or more serious injuries. If the medical situation is an emergency, the school staff will call 9-1-1.

    It is very important that the emergency contacts on your registration card are kept up-to-date, including telephone numbers and names of family and friends that would be available to pick up your student in the event the parent or guardian is not available.

    1. Every day your child is absent, parents should call the school (801-584-2940)) to report your student’s absence. Please send a note with your student when they return to school. Your student’s absence is recorded as an “excused” absence.
    2. In the event the office is not made aware of an absence, the absence is entered as “unexcused.” The automated attendance system will place a call to parents to notify them of the “unexcused” absence.
    3. After three consecutive days of unexcused absences, your child is considered truant.
    4. Extended absences for illness will need a doctor’s note. Also an extended absence will need to be addressed with the teacher for the purpose of school work makeup.

    6. Extended absences of four days or less that are not due to illness should be reported to the office prior to the first day of the absence.
    7. Extended absences of five or more days will require principal permission. Please stop by the office to pick up a Request for Excused Absences During Educational Time form. This form must be completed and turned in to the principal a minimum of one week prior to the beginning absence date.
