Dear East Sandy Mustangs,
I have a couple of things to share for this week so please check out the information and important dates below.
We will be having Halloween festivities on Monday the 31st. Costumes are allowed on the day of halloween but must be school appropriate which means that they can not include weapons of any kind. If it is an inflatable costume it can only be worn during the parade and not during class. If you plan on helping with the classroom party please make sure that you have signed up as a volunteer through Canyons School District.
East Sandy Logo:
East Sandy Logo Launch party – TBD! We are almost ready to reveal our new Mustang mascot & will have special events scheduled soon! Be on the lookout!
Safety Patrol Update:
We were informed recently that we can no longer have crossing guards on public roads. This means that we will no longer have stations to the south or east on the main roads. I am sorry for the inconvenience that this may cause.
PTA is excited for the Reflections entries we’re receiving! Your student can enter the Reflections Art Program until October 19th (all entries submitted online!) for 6 different categories: 2D Art, 3D Art, Dance, Music, Literature, Film, and Photography. All students who enter will be invited to an Awards Carnival on November 11th. Encourage your students to enter & “Show Your Voice” this year & submit entries online before October 19th. Learn more at https://www.utahpta.org/ref
We will have Red Ribbon Week Oct 24th-28th with a special visit from the Sandy City Police Department, and we will have our East Sandy Halloween Parade on October 31st, with class parties later that day (reach out to your Room Parent or Teacher for information on volunteering!)
At our meeting on October 4th, we voted to move the Fundraiser Week to the Spring of 2023. We appreciate the understanding & support, and look forward to April and our Mustang Spirit Week.
Next meeting is October 27th at 4pm.
- October 19th – Reflections Due
- October 20th & 21st – Fall Break
Have a great day!
I am sorry for the poor communication regarding the safety patrol crossing guards. To clarify it is just the student crossing guards that will no longer be stopping traffic in the neighborhood. The adults that are hired by the city will still be crossing out in front of the school and on 1000 E. Below is greater explanation of the law and city code regarding this change. Thank you all for your feedback and again I apologize for the miss communication.
No, pedestrians (including students) can stop traffic. The only people authorized to direct traffic are those certified to do so such as a construction flagger, police, and crossing guards. Crossing guards are limited on what they are allowed to do and when.
Here is the state code regarding pedestrians: https://le.utah.gov/xcode/Title41/Chapter6A/41-6a-P10.html?v=C41-6a-P10_1800010118000101
