Understanding UHSAA Athletic Eligibility

By | blog

UHSAA eligibility will automatically be transferred to Skyridge High School for all students who:

  • live in Skyridge boundaries or received an ASD out-of-area waiver, AND
  • previously established their eligibility at Lehi High, AND
  • are enrolled at Skyridge High School on June 1, 2016.

Students are subject to the UHSAA transfer of eligibility rules and must work with that organization to transfer their eligibility to Skyridge who:

  • received an out-of-area contract to enroll at Skyridge from a school other than Lehi High School, AND
  • previously established their UHSAA eligibility at another school (excluding Lehi High).

COURSE REQUESTS DUE

By | blog

The Skyward portal for Skyridge course requests will close at 8am on Tuesday, February 16. It is critical that all electronic student submissions are entered by that time so that the Master Schedule for the 2016-2017 school year can be completed. Hard copy course request sheets also need to be turned in to the Guidance Center at Lehi High, Lehi Junior High, or Willowcreek Middle School as soon as possible. Collecting these hard copies allows Skyridge counselors to catch and correct any mistakes.

As a new school, Skyridge is in a unique position to be able to construct a schedule with course offerings based on the interests of future students. Please make sure all course requests are completed prior to Tuesday morning so that an accurate master schedule can be created and so that students are able to take the classes they need and prefer. Students who still have questions about courses should submit an incomplete schedule, which is preferable to no schedule request.
