West Field Cone Boundary Study

Open House Presentation

Weber School District will open three new schools for the 2024/25 school year, West Field High School, Mountain View Middle School, and a yet-to-be-named elementary school. The Weber District Board of Education opened a boundary study in November 2022 to create the attendance boundaries for these new schools. As part of that process, current school capacities were studied to determine the best way to alleviate crowding at schools while populating the new schools. This may result in modifications to current school boundaries. 

Weber School District will be hosting open houses to help educate stakeholders on the process and share the boundary scenarios that the school and district teams have helped facilitate. We invite all stakeholders to attend these open houses to review the scenarios and offer feedback. If you cannot attend, you may also use the links below to review the information and share your thoughts. All open houses begin at 6:00pm.

School Safety Message

March 29, 2023

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you are probably aware, numerous calls have been made to school districts across the state regarding a possible active shooter threat.  It turned out to be a hoax and there was no emergency.  One of the calls was directed at Ogden High School which created a county-wide law enforcement response to the school.  As a precautionary measure, many of our schools went into a secure protocol at the direction of law enforcement.

A “secure” is part of the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) and it is initiated when there is a possible threat somewhere in the community.  During a “secure” everyone is brought inside the building and the exterior doors are locked.  No one is allowed in or out of the building until the protocol is released.  During a “secure” it is business as usual inside the school.

A secure differs greatly from a “lockdown.”  A lockdown is a much more serious action because it involves a possible threat inside the school.  For your reference, we have attached information on the Standard Response Protocol (SRP) which describes all of our emergency protocols.

We also want to make you aware of the many safety and security measures we have in place in our district:

  • Safety committees - We have two safety committees that oversee school safety for the district.  These committees meet regularly to review safety procedures and implement  security initiatives.  
  • Site assessments - We are in the process of conducting site assessments at all of our schools to help identify and address security concerns.
  • Secure entrances - Over the past several years, we have been redesigning the main entryways at all of our elementary schools to allow for secure, single-point entry.  This coming summer, work will begin on many of our secondary school entrances.
  • Electronic access control - We’ve also been working on upgrading our exterior doors with electronic access control.  This allows for better monitoring of doors while providing for a more secure building perimeter.
  • Door lock upgrades - We are in the process of replacing interior door locks so doors can be more quickly and easily secured during an emergency.
  • Audio Enhancement - These devices give teachers and staff the ability to immediately alert authorities in the event of an emergency at their school.
  • Security cameras - We have nearly 1,200 security cameras in schools throughout our district.
  • Threat assessment - We’ve had a functioning threat assessment team in place for many years that helps to identify and monitor potential threats within our schools. 
  • Partnership with law enforcement - We have a strong partnership with local law enforcement and there are officers assigned to each of our secondary schools.  They also help to cover our elementary schools.
  • Safety Drills - We conduct regular safety drills according to the Standard Response Protocol (SRP).  These include drills for fire, threats of violence and other emergencies.
  • Mental health therapists - We continue to add mental health therapists to our schools to help students who may be struggling with mental health challenges.
  • Monitoring software - We have software that monitors our district network and devices for potential threats and concerns.
  • SafeUT app - We continue to use and promote the SafeUT app which is an anonymous tip line and crisis line.  Tips that are submitted help us to address concerns early while preventing school violence. 
  • WSD Notifier - In the event of an emergency, you will receive texts and emails through the WSD Notifier.  It’s important that you have updated your contact information in this system in order to receive notifications.
  • Social Media - We try our best to monitor activities on social media but we need your help.  If you choose to allow your children to use social media, please talk with them about appropriate use and posting responsibly.  Making threats or even posting jokes related to school violence isn’t funny, it’s criminal.

The safety and well-being of our students and employees is foremost on our minds. We are navigating a societal landscape wherein school shootings, threats and disruptions are far too commonplace. We acknowledge that this creates heightened fear and anxiety for students and families. Please be assured that we are doing all we can to keep our school settings safe. The saying, “See something, say something” is more relevant today than ever before. Everyone plays an important role in school safety. We must look out for one another and work together. 

Sincerely,

WSD Superintendency

Snow Days

Closures, Delayed Starts, and Early Releases Due to Weather

(Snow Days)

Utah is a winter state with the Ogden area receiving over five feet of snowfall annually. During winter months, temperatures can average in the 20s & 30s, and it’s not uncommon to experience patterns of cold and snowy weather.  

Despite inclement weather, Weber School District has a responsibility to keep schools open as long as they can be safely and effectively operated. The public relies on our schools to be open as we provide many services for children and families.  

  • In addition to learning, our schools provide breakfast and lunch to many children who might go without.  
  • Unscheduled closures on short notice may create hardships for working parents, and many children could be left home unsupervised.  
  • Neighborhood schools provide a warm and safe place for all children, so any adjustment to the school schedule must be carefully considered.

With these factors in mind, all Weber School District schools will be open on all regularly scheduled school days unless circumstances exist that create serious health and safety concerns.   

On days when snow is expected, our custodial and maintenance crews will be out early to evaluate conditions at each school. They will be checking to make sure the building can be safely opened, which includes clearing snow from parking lots and sidewalks and ensuring all heating and lighting systems are functioning properly. It’s critical that we have adequate staff on site prior to the start of classes.

Another important consideration is busing. Our transportation department is constantly monitoring weather forecasts and road conditions. They must determine if the main roadways have been cleared by plows, and if our buses are able to safely and effectively operate.

If buildings can be safely opened and buses are able to pick up students at regularly scheduled times, then school will be in session. In the event that conditions don’t allow this, the decision to modify the school schedule will be the decision of the superintendent.

We plan on our schools to be open and functioning normally throughout the school year, so notifications will only be sent out when there is a disruption to the schedule. If parents and students do not receive a notification advising them of a change in the schedule, then they should plan on school being in session.

Notifications will be sent out through the WSD notification system, so please make sure your contact information is up to date. Information may also be posted on district and school websites, as well as social media pages. Teachers and/or principals may also send out messages from their schools. Notifications will be sent out as soon as reasonably possible in order to give parents and students advanced notice of any changes.

In the event of a delayed start, morning preschool classes will be canceled. With a two hour delay, students would have minimal time in the classroom between drop off and pick up (only approximately 45 minutes) which would be disruptive to younger children to not be able to participate in a regular classroom routine. 

In the event of an early release, elementary and junior high students will be kept at school until parents have been notified and students can be safely released.

Weber School District operates 45 schools serving over 34,000 students throughout Weber County. We understand that weather and road conditions may vary from one school community to another. Any decision to delay or cancel school is based on the school or district’s situation as a whole, and not according to anyone's individual circumstances. Please consider that adjusting the schedule may be best for one family, but it could be just the opposite for another, so it’s a decision we don’t take lightly.

Ultimately, it is a parent’s decision to send their child to school. If circumstances exist where a parent doesn’t feel that their child can safely get to school, then we expect parents to make the best choice for their child in regards to attendance. Parents should also have a backup plan in place for daycare and supervision in case there is ever an adjustment to the school schedule or if they decide to keep their child home.

If a student is late or missed class due to concerns over being able to get to school safely because of adverse weather conditions, then we will work closely with them in making up any missed assignments.
