When you’re absent… 

Just like at a job, you should let us know when you’re going to miss school. Every absence should be excused.  To excuse an absence, you should do the following: 

  1. Email or call 801-578-8574 with your name, student number, and reason for absence. 
  1. Email the teacher(s) whose class(es) you’ll miss to ask what work you missed and how to make it up. 


Building Hours 

Our main site campus is open to students Monday – Friday from 8am to 4pm. You are welcome to come early or stay late to use a computer for homework or get extra help. 

Covid-19 Safety 

Everyone inside our building is strongly encouraged to wear a mask and get vaccinated if eligible. Please wash your hands frequently, cough into your elbow, and use hand sanitizer before touching your face. 

If you are feeling sick, please stay home.  All our teachers have been instructed to post work on Canvas and no one should be punished for an absence.
