SCHOOL PICTURE DAYS

By | blog

School pictures will be taken August 31-September 6. The schedule is determined by which ENGLISH teacher the student has. We’re excited to be using a great company called FotoFly do our pictures. Each student will have one traditional yearbook photo and those buying pictures will have also have one Y.U.R.U. photo – an opportunity to show what makes them unique. Students should be prepared to bring a prop on their picture day (like a musical instrument, football, something that represents a hobby, etc.) so they can show off what makes them original.

We are excited for our first day of school EVER at Skyridge on Monday, August 22. On Mondays, school starts at 7:45am and ends at 1:15pm. Tuesdays through Fridays, school hours are 7:45am-2:15pm.

Our faculty and staff have been working hard to prepare everything for our students, but we know that everything will not be perfect. Please be patient with us as we work through some of the ‘new school glitches.’ Student learning and safety comes first!

To help make the first day of school go more smoothly for your student, please encourage them to print a copy of their schedule from Skyward to carry with them until they are more familiar with the school layout.

EXCITING NEWS… WE’RE MOVING!!!

By | blog

We are super excited to announce that we have received permission to begin moving our temporary offices that were located at Lehi High to our permanent home at Skyridge High School beginning Friday, July 15. Because of the magnitude of this transition, our main office will open again on Tuesday, July 19 at 8am at Skyridge. (801-610-8820)

The contractors are still finalizing construction in several areas of the building, so the main office will be the only part of the facility that is available to the public at this time. To access the main office, please enter the property through the Center Street entrance located at approximately 3050 N Center Street. You will need to park on the west side of the building and enter the main doors, located in the center of the building.

Counselors will be available to facilitate class changes during the second week of August. More information about specific times and appointments will be sent during the last week of July.

We are SO grateful for the incredible facility that we have, as well as for the hard-working crews that have been working tirelessly for two years on this project. We are also appreciative to the awesome administration at Lehi High School for allowing us to use their school as our home base for the last year. We are looking forward to an amazing year! Please watch for information about our Grand Opening to be released soon. Go, Falcons!
