Dear Patrons, Staff, and Students,                                                             May 20, 2021
We are so grateful for the efforts of everyone involved with our schools in making this 2020-2021 school year successful and being able to finish the entire school year without having to go entirely online or close our doors. We appreciate the efforts and dedication of our EDUCATORS and their sacrifice in putting themselves on the line every day. We appreciate the parents and students and all the sacrifices that have taken place this year in following safety protocols and helping protect each other.
Many states around us and throughout the United States didn't have the normalcy that we were afforded. Many states were online and didn't allow extracurricular activities to take place this year. Thank you for all your understanding and support.
We understand that the mask mandate has been polarizing but are grateful that COVID seems to be slowing down. According to Governor Cox's update and the public health order, as of Monday, May 24th, masks will no longer be required in South Sanpete schools. This will apply to buses, activites, classrooms, and all school functions. This change will also be in effect for any summer school programs and activities and moving forward. Any individual that wishes to continue wearing a mask is welcome to do so.
HB 1007 passed in a special Legislative session yesterday and, South Sanpete School District will adhere to it. For next school year, 2021-22 HB 1007 states, "a school may not require an individual to wear a face-covering to attend or participate in in-person instruction, LEA-sponsored athletics, or another LEA-sponsored extra-curricular activity, or in any other place on the campus of a school or school facility after the end of the 2020-2021 school year."  In the future, if there is an outbreak that surpasses thresholds, the health department will determine mask requirements.
Once again, we are grateful for the South Sanpete School District schools remaining open all year and your efforts in making that happen. Please continue to be safe and have a FANTASTIC summer.
Ralph C. Squire Superintendent
South Sanpete School District

This year our annual May Day Program will be held on Thursday, May 27th at 10:00 a.m.  The program will be held OUTSIDE at the Snow College football field. The May Day theme is “Night at the Movies” and students will celebrate through music and dance, weather permitting.  Please bring a jacket as it may be chilly outside in the morning.  The program will most likely be under an hour in length, and masks will be required due to the inability to social distance. We feel so fortunate to have a program this year and appreciate the hard work of the EES May Day committee and accommodations provided by Snow College.  Watch for additional information from your child’s teacher in the weeks to come!
