A Message From Our Principal
Our Jordan Hills Carnival and Fun Run were a great success and a lot of fun! A huge thank you goes out to everyone who came out and participated. The funds earned will provide some fun and exciting educational opportunities for our students. The amazing Jordan Hills PTA put countless hours into organizing and planning the carnival and the fun run. Their dedication and hard work is so appreciated!
We have some exciting news! According to data reported by the State Office of Education, Jordan Hills was at the top of the list for academic growth for 2014-15 when compared to similar schools in the state. This data comes from our year-end assessments and the scores are a direct result of the hard work put in by students and teachers. Way to go Jordan Hills!
The month of October brings some fun activities along with cooler weather. Here are some dates to be aware of:
- October 15th and 16th is fall break. There is no school on those days.
- October 29th is our Halloween parade. It will begin at 9:00.
- October 23rd-29th is Red Ribbon Week.
- October 30th is grade transmittal day. There is no school on that day.
- November 3rd is picture re-takes.
With the cooler weather approaching we want to remind students to dress appropriately for the weather. We want everyone to stay healthy during the cold and flu season. Proper hand washing can really help to keep kids healthy. We want to remind students to cough and sneeze into their elbow if they have colds to avoid the spread of germs. Also, please remind students to avoid sharing hats with friends at school. Occasionally, we have an isolated report of head lice but luckily it is rare that it is spread at school. Reminding students to not share hats and coats is the best preventative measure.
One of Jordan School District’s priorities is to keep our students safe. Jordan School District has recently published a video explaining the protocol for reunification in the event of an emergency. You can access the video by clicking here.
At Jordan Hills we work hard to keep our students safe as they are being dropped off for school and picked up after school. The drive through drop off/pick up area in front of the school can become congested fairly quickly and sometimes traffic becomes blocked on 4800 S. We would ask that vehicles pull all the way forward in this area and that parents instruct students to walk behind the line painted down the sidewalk to get to their vehicle. Pulling forward will really help keep the traffic flowing and will avoid the wait time for those trying to enter the parking lot.
According to our safe walking route established with West Jordan City, we have instructed students who are going to cross 4800 S to use the sidewalk next to the school and walk around to meet the crossing guards. This has been determined to be the safest walking route. We want to set a good example for our students so we are asking all parents to follow our safe walking route when picking up or dropping off students. We would like to ask everyone to please not use the unattended crossing in the parking lot during pick up and drop off times because it poses a greater risk to student safety.
Thank you to our amazing families for the support you show to the school and the students! Jordan Hills is a great place to be!
All the best!
