Dear Parents and Guardians,

Beginning Monday, January 14th, South Sanpete School District will be administering online school surveys. All parents or guardians are invited to participate. The purpose of the survey is to gather feedback about teachers, principals, and schools. Responses are anonymous and no personal information is collected. Results will be given to teachers and administrators and used to improve classrooms and schools. The survey takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. 

This survey will be open from Monday, January 14th through Friday, March 1st. You may receive more than one invitation or reminder to take the survey, but please take the survey only once.  

You can access the survey by following the link below:

Parent Survey:

A link to the survey is also available on the school website.  You may take the survey on any computer or device that has internet access. You are also welcome take the survey on a school computer. The survey is available in English and Spanish.

Please note:

Only select the teachers your student(s) have classes with this academic year (2018-2019).

If you have more than one child at the same school, please only take the survey once.  You will have the opportunity to provide feedback for multiple teachers at the school.  

If you have children attending multiple schools, please only take the survey once per school.  You will have the opportunity to provide feedback for multiple teachers at each school.  

Comments will be shared with administrators and teachers in their original form.  If you wish to remain anonymous, please do not provide any information that may directly or indirectly identify you (ex.: your name, your child’s name, your child’s gender, details of a specific incident or conversation, etc.).

Thank you in advance for your participation.

Reader Night

Mark your calendars and plan to attend Reader Night on Monday, March 4 @ 6:30 p.m.Families will enjoy a fun evening of reading. 

Book Fair

The book fair will be held March 4-8. It is open before school, during lunch, and from 6pm-8pm on Reader Night.  It will close on Friday at noon. You can shop online until March 12 at:



Please do not drop your student off in the bus drop-off area. Please use the student pick-up /drop-off area. 


In order to keep all students safe and not overload our buses, students will not be allowed to switch buses.  

Which means… students have a regular bus that they ride after school. They can only ride that bus. If they need to go to a different location, you will need to pick them up or transport them after they get home.  Also, please make all after school pick-up arrangements before students come to school. We usually only have one secretary in the office and it is impossible for her to make all the changes that are called in.

We have many children with allergies. Please do not send food on the bus with your children. If they have snacks in their backpack, they need to wait until they are off the bus to eat them.

 Electronic devices

Students are not permitted to use personal electronic devices such as cell phones, iPods, iPads in school unless assigned by their teacher. If they need a phone to contact you after school, remind them to turn it off and keep it in their backpack until school is over.
