East Sandy Happenings – 1/12/24

Dear East Sandy families-
Canyons School District surveys the community to gain feedback on key areas that help us create better partnerships. We do look at the feedback and try to find ways to improve. One of the areas we look at is Staff members (teachers, administrators, and office staff) are respectful towards parents (e.g. through e-mail, telephone, in person). Please know this is a core principle at East Sandy.  All adults want the best for your child and respect you as a caregiver. I invite you to email me or come in if you every want to give feedback or have concerns (daniel.ashbridge@canyonsdistrict.org).

“Always keep the spirit of a mustang!”

Reminder there is not school Monday Jan 15th for MLK day. We will see everyone back on Tuesday. 

Report Cards: Report card will be printed and sent home Tuesday afternoon.  Teachers are working collaboratively to make sure that your child has the most accurate representation of what they know and can do.  Please feel free to reach out and schedule a meeting with your child’s teacher if you have questions or concerns on their academic progress.

Cell Phones & Smart Watches at East Sandy (please call the office or parent square teachers to contact your child during the school day).
Please help us with focusing our attention on learning while students are in school.  East Sandy’s Cell Phone plan is to have students keep their phones locked away in their backpacks during the school day. We are also including any watches that have cellular capabilities.  If students have their phone/watch out during class or recess, teachers will remind them to put them away.  If teachers have to continuously remind students to put them away, they will hold the phone/watch until the end of the day at which point they will return it to the student.  If it continues to be an issue, we will schedule a meeting with administration to problem solve and find a solution.
-This is not a “ban” on cellphones, but best practice to keep students focused on instruction during the day.

Digital Citizenship

Did you know? A whopping 59% of preteens and teens surveyed by Common Sense reported using their phones between midnight and 5 a.m. on school nights. Common Sense Media has practical tips to help kids establish a healthy balance between phones and sleep. https://cnyns.org/48k6C2P

Late Check In Reminder
We had an influx of students checking in 20-30 min after the tardy bell rings. This week approximately 30 students check in late each day.  This makes it difficult for our front office to get accurate lunch counts. Additionally it throws off the consistency of starting the school day in the classroom.  Please help us and try your best to have your child arrive at school before 8:15am.  I appreciate you help with this.
Afternoon Pickup Reminder
Please use the pickup lane or the parking lot at the end of the day only. Do not park on 865 E. to pick up your child or have them cross the road to get to your car.  We want to make sure that all students are safe.

January Wellness Word is Safety (see flyer)
East Sandy’s wellness word of the month is SAFETY! Being safe at school helps us learn, play, and have fun.  There are a lot of ways to stay safe at school: following school rules, understanding safe and unsafe secrets, knowing hot to keep your body safe, practicing safety drills, and more!
