Thank you to Zoe for making this cute sign for our school! She was so excited to have it for our teache'rs parade! When it was cancelled she was so sad, so she brought it to our school to hang there so our teachers and staff would  know how much they are loved!

We miss seeing our students each day! We hope everyone is doing okay during this time! 

Remember that "TOGETHER WE RISE"

Governor Herbert on School’s Extended Dismissal

Submitted by linda.beck on Mon, 03/23/2020 - 19:56

March 23, 2020


Dear Parent/Guardian:


Like you, we are just learning that Governor Gary R. Herbert, State Superintendent Syd Dickson, and the Utah State Board of Education “announced today that Utah’s K-12 public schools will extend their dismissal [soft closure] through Friday, May 1st.”  Their press release further stated that they will “continue to evaluate the situation to make a determination about the remaining school year” and that:


Gov. Herbert expressed his appreciation to the educators throughout our state who have quickly adapted their instruction to remote learning platforms. 


“These are unprecedented times in Utah’s and our nation’s history,” the governor said, “I have been overwhelmed with Utahns’ outpouring of support for one another, and nowhere has this been more evident than in the way our educators are supporting Utah students and families.”


Distance learning will continue during the extended dismissal for all K-12 public schools, where feasible…


“We recognize that being away from school creates additional work and stress for everyone in our communities; however, it is a necessary step in stopping the spread of COVID-19,” said State Superintendent Sydnee Dickson. “During the uncertainties of the coming weeks, it is more important than ever to remain socially connected with our students and families while doing our best to ensure learning continues. The flexibility and initiative of our educators is a shining example of how we rise together in challenging circumstances.”


Meal services at K-12 public schools will also continue on an as-needed basis.


Nebo School District teachers and staff remain committed to providing the learning structure and support that students and parents will require during these challenging times.  Our talented and dedicated professionals are so thankful to you students and parents for your tremendous efforts regarding at-home schooling.  Please remain in communication with your child’s teachers and contact the school with questions and concerns. 


We are so grateful to live in amazing communities that rally around each other in difficult circumstances and are proud to be your partners in helping your children have academic and social/emotional success.

Nebo Follow-up with Students

Submitted by linda.beck on Tue, 03/17/2020 - 16:06

Nebo Students: Thank you for your patience and support as we navigate through this unprecedented time in education. We just want to keep you updated on what is happening in Nebo School District.

For the past couple of days and even through the weekend, Nebo teachers have been in training and preparing online materials and/or packets for their students for “at home” instruction.

Students, you should be hearing from your teacher(s) about learning “at home” instructions and directions in the next day or two on how to proceed in your particular class. If you have not heard from your teacher by the morning of Friday, March 20, 2020, please notify your school.

School campuses will remain open for the next two weeks.
• Students can retrieve personal items.
• Students can pick up assignments from their instructors.
• Some instructors may be available for brief one-on-one tutoring.
• Instructors will help answer student questions about their assignments.

The safety and education of our Nebo students is paramount in everything we do and in every decision we make. Thank you for your partnership in education.

2nd Grade Science Unit

Submitted by linda.beck on Mon, 03/16/2020 - 13:56

2nd grade finished up their science unit of Patterns In The Night Sky.  Thanks to Mrs. Munn, all of the 2nd grade students were able to take flashlights into the Little Theater and look for night animals.  We got to see constellations in the sky, look at the moon and listen to all kinds of night sound!  It was awesome!!!

Nebo Follow-up Information March 15, 2020

Submitted by linda.beck on Sun, 03/15/2020 - 20:40

March 15, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians:

This letter, dated March 15, is a follow up to the Nebo District letter dated March 13, and other letters that have been sent from your child’s school.  It is intended to provide clarification regarding some general questions that have been circulating.  Please help us to ensure that all parents, guardians, grandparents, or caregivers who provide student support are aware of this information.


As directed by the State of Utah, all public schools in Utah will dismiss beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, for two weeks in response to COVID-19. This is a proactive measure.


“Soft closure” or school “dismissal” means that Nebo employees will continue to provide learning for students through online instruction and/or educational packets to continue student learning. Further communication about devices and materials will come from your school.

Educators in Nebo School District will be working on March 16-17 to prepare online materials and/or packets and we anticipate instruction will begin Wednesday, March 18.  Please watch for specific information from your child’s school and teacher(s).

Thank you for your continued support as we navigate through these unprecedented educational times.



Updated March 15 – Students can go to any school in the District to pick up meals beginning Monday, March 16.

In order to provide our Nebo students with “Grab and Go” meals, breakfast and lunch will be available for purchase at normal prices. Free/reduced meals are available for those who qualify.  Breakfast may be picked up between 8:00-9:00 a.m. and does not need to be pre-ordered.  Lunch may be picked up between 11:00-12:00 and should be pre-ordered each day using the phone number and order deadline provided by the individual school.  



Clarification from the Governor’s Office:  At Friday’s news conference, “Gov. Gary R. Herbert mentioned that during public school’s two-week dismissal, parents who are unable to be home with children will have the option to bring them to school to be supervised by teachers. This is not the case


“School campuses will remain open for the next two weeks so students can retrieve personal items or pick up assignments from their instructors. Some instructors may be available for brief one-on-one tutoring or to help answer student questions about their assignments. It is important to note that schools will not provide childcare of any kind.” (see for full official statement)




Other than for picking up “grab and go” meals, students can be at the school by invitation only.  If they need to come and pick up items from the classroom, desk, or locker, they should contact the school to make arrangements.  Any individual tutoring or small group instruction plans will be coordinated by the school.  




Parents always have the right to determine that their child should not come to the school, even if invited for specific services or instruction.  As always, students and others should refrain from coming to the school if they are sick or have been in direct contact with those who are sick with the virus.




At this time a limited number of buses may be seen driving in your communities.  These buses are on specific assignments and are not for the general student population.  Please don’t mistake the presence of buses as a signal that schools are in session.



There will be no extracurricular activities, practices, games, or performances during these two weeks (see for official statement).


  • Information is changing almost daily.  For the most current and accurate Nebo District information and communication, contact your local school and/or check the Nebo District website at
  • The school proactive dismissal for two weeks is meant to support social distancing and self-isolation to reduce the reach and spread of this virus.
  • COVID-19 has rapidly changing dynamics and the school district administrative team is working with local health authorities to monitor the situation on a daily basis. 
  • The Utah Health Department COVID-19 Hotline can be accessed at 1-800-456-7707. You can also receive Utah County Health updates by texting “UCHEALTH” to 888777 or the Utah County COVID-19 Helpline at 801-851-HELP (Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.).
