Suicide Prevention

Student safety is a top priority in Jordan School District. To further our efforts in helping students in crisis and suicide prevention, we will be holding an educational workshop for parents called “Suicide Prevention: Raising Children in Challenging Times.”

The workshop will be conducted by a nationally-recognized expert in school safety and suicide prevention, Dr. Scott Poland.

An evening session led by Dr. Poland is being held for parents district-wide.

  • Monday, April 16, Riverton High Auditorium 6:30 – 8 p.m.

Dr. Poland is a certified school psychologist and a founding member of the National Emergency Assistance Team for the National Association of School Psychologists. He previously served as the Prevention Director for the American Association of Suicidology. He has led multiple national crisis teams following school shootings and suicides.

Thank you for your participation in this important event and for your efforts in helping to keep students safe throughout Jordan School District.

Attendance Policy Change

Beginning Monday, March 26th we are changing a part of our Attendance Policy.  Beginning now, late students will go straight to class, unless they have a note from home excusing their absences or tardy. If your student has a note, they must stop in at the Attendance Office to turn in the note and have that absence or tardy excused on their way to class.

If your student does not have a note and is late for class, any time of the day, they should go directly to class.  Teachers will mark them accordingly.  “A” for absent, “T” for tardy (10 minutes or less late), and a “W” if your student is 11 minutes or more late but does attend class that period.

Parents may excuse absences with a signed note or phone call for 5 school days after the absence.  Please be sure to name your student in the note along with the date of the absence and sign the note. We are open for phone calls from 7:00am to 3:00pm each school day.  Our office number is 801-256-5310.

Just a reminder: students who are here at school must check out in the Attendance Office before leaving school.  Absences given to students who leave school without checking out will remain absences and may not be excused after the fact.

We are hoping this change will get our student into class faster and avoid having them wait in line.

Thank you for your time and attention.
