Early Release Day, February 28, 2020 - 12:40 PM

On Friday, February 28, 2020, the Salt Lake Education Association (our district’s teachers’ association) has declared a Day of Action. Teachers will be holding a walk-out in the afternoon to encourage the Utah Legislature to prioritize public education funding. 

In the Salt Lake City School District (SLCSD), our highest priority is the education and safety of your students. With so many teachers anticipated to participate in the walk-out, we will not have the capacity to provide adequate supervision to keep your students safe and learning that afternoon. Accordingly, we need to implement a half-day schedule on Friday, February 28, for all SLCSD schools. 

All schools will begin at their usual time, and buses will operate on their normal schedule. Breakfast and lunch will be available to students at every SLCSD school. However, our schools will end that day at 12:40 pm. 

If you have any questions, please contact your child’s principal for more information.

West High Latinos In Action students have started tutoring kindergarten students

Twice each week, students from West High (LIA) come to Newman and tutor in our Kindergarten classrooms.  They work with students for 30 minutes using the Dyad reading strategy.  We are very excited about this partnership and look forward to seeing our Kindergartener’s reading skills increase!

Thank you, Wasatch Gardens!

We want to thank Wasatch Gardens for cleaning up and repairing our school greenhouse.  Our students will now be able to use it for the next growing season.

You are awesome!

The greenhouse looks great!
