Back to School 20-21

Parents,

As of the information we have today, South Sanpete School District plans to start the 2020-2021 school year with students coming back to our classrooms for in-person instruction. Working closely with State and Local officials, we are currently in the process of developing plans to assist all students and faculty in remaining healthy and safe while at school.  Masks will be strongly recommended/required when safe distancing is NOT possible.  Schools will do their best to space student out and social distance students inside the classrooms. Teachers will continue to use iPads (packets for Pre-2 grade) to instruct students for their traditional face-to-face classes and/or the online/virtual home learning. If we revert, we may need to go strictly to the online/virtual instruction.

We strongly recommend students returning to the classroom with their teachers. Traditional face to face instruction with a teacher is the best scenario for students. We understand this is not possible for all students and in all cases.  We also understand you may have concerns as the circumstances surrounding COVID-19 continue to evolve.  Therefore, we are preparing to offer these learning options for students and their families.

  • Traditional face-to-faceclassroom instruction in the building for all courses.
  • Online/virtualhome learning. Teachers will manage online/virtual learning during their time in the building from 7:30-3:30.

Face-to-face Classroom Instruction in the Building

  • Face coverings will be required for transportation on the school bus. (Exemptions need to be approved by the administration)
  • Face coverings are highly encouraged or may be required when social distancing is not feasible.Students are expected to have a face mask available each day. South Sanpete will have some available for students, but with 3,000+ students, we cannot provide one each day.We encourage you to bring your own mask.
  • Social distancing, to the best of our ability, will be practiced.
  • Teachers will provide instruction, feedback, and regular historical grading for students.

Online/Virtual instruction

  • A teacher will provide the classwork and regular historical grading (6-12 grades).

As we continue to work on our return to school protocol, we value your feedback as parents of students in our District. As we receive additional guidance from the local health department, these practices are subject to change.  Please help as we are all in this together.  We ask for your understanding and flexibility during this pandemic. A link to a short survey will be sent to your email that is listed on your power school account. This survey will give us vital information for making the necessary preparations for the start of school and reopening of school this fall.

REGISTRATION 20-21!!
Students, 

Here is a copy of next year's master schedule. Please look over it carefully as we have added several new classes. We are excited about the course offerings available for next year! Please note that due to the COVID pandemic, the high school will not be open for onsite registration. All registration must be done online. We have taken the necessary precautions to help this run as smoothly as possible. We understand that this is a stressful time but we will be here to take your calls and help you through this process. 

Here is what you need to know prior to registering for classes for next year.

Registration will be next week and will be done according to your current grade starting with Juniors and ending with 8th graders. We will open Class Choice at 9:00 a.m. each day and it will remain open throughout the week for that class. 

Monday, May 11th - Class of 2021 (11th graders currently)

Tuesday, May 12th - Class of 2022 (10th grade currently)

Wednesday, May 13th - Class of 2023 (9th grade currently)

Thursday, May 14th - Class of 2024 (8th grade currently)

 

Accessing Class Choice to Register for Classes

You will access class choice through your STUDENT PowerSchool account. 

1. Log in to your STUDENT PowerSchool account @ https://www.ps.ssanpete.org/public/home.html

2. Once you've logged into your PowerSchool account, click on the "CLASS REGISTRATION' icon under the Navigation menu on the left side of your screen.

3. You should be able to access class choice and begin registering for your classes. IF Class Choice does not appear for you, it is because you either logged in too early or, it is not your assigned time to register.  

 

Changes for ALL Science and Social Science Classes

In an effort to reduce the number of classes students have each semester, we have made some changes in our science and social science departments. These classes are being taught EVERY DAY for a semester instead of every other day for a year. Students will earn full credit in a semester. Therefore students MUST register for their science class both A and B day in the same period for a semester, The other semester will be their Social Science every day in that same period. For example:

  Semester 1 Semester 2
A day    
1 English 11 English 11
2 Chemistry US History
3 Foods Sewing
     
B day    
1 Math III Math III
2 Chemistry US History
3 Choir Choir

 

Changes for 2020/2021 Sophomores

Sophomore students will be required to take a Leadership class. This class should be scheduled during the opposite semester of your health class in the same class period. Health/Leadership or Leadership/Health For Example, if a student registers for 2B Health (semester one,) then that student should register for Leadership 2B (semester two.) This is similar to your Geography/BOS this year.

Additional Information regarding required classes by grade will be sent to each grade level via email. The counseling office will post a video on the counseling webpage about registration and the new changes to the schedule.  

Please do not hesitate to contact the counseling office with any questions/concerns.
