A Message From Governor Herbert

A message to our students from Governor Herbert.

Congratulations, Seniors! You're on the cusp of achieving one of life's outstanding accomplishments. High school diplomas will soon be in-hand! You're kind of a big deal!  With that said, we acknowledge that this is an unprecedented, uncertain, emotional, and bittersweet time. We are all adjusting to a new normal. The world has been turned upside down by a pandemic virus (COVID-19) which health officials warn is easily spread and may result in serious illness or death. Beloved rites of passage for the Class of 2020 have had to be canceled, postponed, or drastically modified to ensure public safety. We sincerely acknowledge the sense of loss many of you may be feeling as a result. It's okay to be a little sad and disappointed. We applaud, however, the valiant efforts you are making to remain optimistic and complete graduation requirements via remote learning. 

The American poet, Maya Angelou, once said, "You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it."  Angelou's wise words remind us of one of life's greatest lessons: Difficulties strengthen our ability to overcome. We believe in each of you and your ability to do difficult things. Keep your eyes on the prize. The best is yet to come! 

We are in continual contact with state/local government and health officials, and it has become evident that we will not be able to safely facilitate traditional graduation ceremonies for our high schools on scheduled days/times in May. With a public health order in place discouraging non-essential travel, promoting the practice of physical distancing, and not allowing social/group gatherings greater than ten people, it has become necessary to create a modified graduation plan to celebrate the Class of 2020. 

In a recent letter from Governor Gary Herbert to local school districts, he stated, "As the Class of 2020 prepares for one of the defining moments of any generation, high school graduation, it is up to all of us to ensure these students receive the recognition they have earned in as safe an environment as possible.  We appreciate your efforts in planning for a virtual format, suspending formal ceremonies until it is deemed safe, or a combination of both.  We acknowledge that you are working hard to make these decisions based on community safety, while trying to honor the students in a special way."

Here are the preliminary details associated with the WSD modified graduation plan:

Each high school will facilitate a Virtual (online) Graduation Ceremony for the Class of 2020 on Friday, May 29, 2020.  Each event will be recorded and video streamed. A link to access the commencement program will be provided as we get closer to the specified date. Seniors, you will be invited to participate in your school's virtual ceremony in a meaningful and memorable way! More in-depth details will be forthcoming from each high school.  

Schedule of Virtual Graduation Ceremonies on May 29th:

Weber Innovation High School 10:00 AM YouTube KSL Video
Two Rivers High School 11:00 AM YouTube KSL Video
Weber High School 12:00 PM YouTube KSL Video
Fremont High School 2:00 PM YouTube KSL Video
Roy High School 4:00 PM YouTube KSL Video
Bonneville High School 6:00 PM YouTube KSL Video


Officials at each high school plan to facilitate a "Class of 2020 Celebration" when protective mandates have been lifted and allow for large group gatherings. These events will likely take place outdoors, sometime in the late summer or early fall. Graduated seniors and parents will be invited back to the school to interact with each other, teachers, counselors, support staff members, coaches/advisors, and administrators and enjoy a celebration of this year's amazing Class of 2020. 

It is very important to us that our district's seniors know that we are deeply saddened that we must modify the traditional graduation ceremony experience; however, we all acknowledge that the health and safety of each member of our community is the top priority. We will work very hard to creatively provide two, separate and meaningful events to honor the accomplishments and sacrifices of our seniors!  We strongly believe that there will never be a graduating class like the Class of 2020. You're a special and gritty group, and you're showing us all how to courageously move through adversity. We are extremely proud of each of you! Keep moving forward!

All the best,

April 2020 Superintendency Message

A message from Assistant Superintendent Lori Rasmussen:

A Message to Our Students

Dear Weber School District Students,

You are living in remarkable times. Never has the world seen the likes of these current events. Here in Utah we have experienced not only the fallout of the Coronavirus but an earthquake as well. You have experienced all kinds of events this last month. "Social Distancing" has become an all too familiar phrase. The NBA season and March Madness were cancelled. Your traditional events have been cancelled. Even school has been dismissed until May 1st. Your world changed overnight. 

Through all of this, one thing became clear; you are brave, you are strong! You have the opportunity to find the good, even in very difficult times. You are finding ways to come together in today's world. We have heard of amazing acts of kindness and humanity across our community. Whether it is posting positive messages through social media and hashtags, sharing positive thoughts through sidewalk chalk drawings, checking in on friends and loved ones digitally, even communicating the old fashioned way of writing a letter to someone to let them know that you are thinking of them and that you care about them and appreciate their soul. 

It seems that in this crisis, many of us are realizing that we took some things for granted. I know that I did. I took for granted being able to hug my grandkids tight. I took for granted going to eat with dear friends and sharing those precious moments. I have heard from many of you that you even took school for granted. School is much more than a place of learning. It is a place of connection and a place of humanity. We want you to know we miss you dearly. We feel for you. 

The good news is that this crisis will soon be over. We will have those opportunities to connect, to reach out to those you may have missed, to take chances, to dance like nobody's watching, and to live the life you deserve. Out of all of this, the greater good will prevail and we will be stronger than ever. Please take care of yourselves at this time and stay safe. See you soon!

COVID-19 Information

Parent COVID-19 Information

Lunch Information during the "soft closure" >>

Dear Parents,

This afternoon Governor Gary Herbert initiated a "soft closure" on all K-12 public and charter schools for the next two weeks (beginning Monday, March 16, 2020). The governor explained that his intent in issuing this unprecedented move was to prevent potential community spread of the coronavirus. His emphasis was on "social distancing," or the elimination of large group gatherings. I want to emphasize that there have been no cases of the covid-19 virus identified in the Weber School District at this point.

Next week our teachers will spend Monday and Tuesday preparing for a short-term, on-line delivery of curriculum for students. Teachers will be preparing a modified home learning experience—one that permits students to continue engaging in meaningful study from home. No students should attend school on Monday, March 16th or Tuesday, March 17th.

Beginning Wednesday, March 18th, a modified home study plan will be made available to your student(s). Teachers will communicate specific information regarding that modified home study plan. As much as possible, over the two-week school "soft closure" period, students should not be at school. In order to adhere to the governor’s request, students should practice social distancing and learn from home.  

Our teachers and staff will spend limited time in the schools during this two-week period. However, teachers will primarily be preparing and uploading learning material that students can access from home. In those rare instances where students cannot access the internet at home or may not have a computer available, they can come to the school between the hours of 8:30 a.m. thru 12:00 noon.  

During this two-week "soft closure" of schools, buses will not be running. However, we will make available a "Grab and Go" sack lunch that students can pick up from their school. Those schools that provide breakfast will provide a "Grab and Go" morning meal as well. Specific information on school meals during the two-week "soft closure" period will be provided next week.

Through this two-week period, all extra-curricular activities and athletic events will be suspended. This includes practices. The suspension of athletic games and practices is statewide. Finally, please note that the spring break will remain as scheduled (March 30 – April 3).

We recognize that we are in uncharted territory. Because of that we understand that there will be questions not addressed in this brief message. Additional questions should be directed to your school principal. I will be working closely with our principals throughout this unique period. These are remarkable times requiring extraordinary adjustments and sacrifices by all. And, it’s all being done at the request of the governor and for the sake of public health and safety. We are grateful for your understanding and express our deepest appreciation for all you do to support our schools.

Dr. Jeff Stephens
Superintendent
Weber School District

We would like to share two websites that will give you accurate information regarding the current situation, and accurate information about what we know about COVID-19. As we know, this is an evolving situation, and we will trust the scientists who are working to control this outbreak as we move forward.

https://coronavirus.utah.gov/

https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and the Utah Coronavirus Task Force are recommending that gatherings of more than 100 people be canceled in order to slow the spread of COVID-19. In response to this -- and with the safety of our students and staff and that of their families in mind -- Weber School District is temporarily canceling all extracurricular activities, including but not limited to those involving athletics, groups, clubs, and dances. State officials are also recommending that people stay home if they are showing any symptoms, and that individuals over sixty as well as individuals who are immunocompromised avoid gatherings of more than twenty people.

Weber School District is committed to the safety of our students and their families, as well as that of our faculty and staff.

For additional information visit the State Board of Education website.
