Final Two Weeks

We are in our last two weeks of school and time is flying. Here’s a rundown of things you need to know as we wrap up the year.

Monday, May 20 – Thursday, May 23 – Afternoon Prowl

We are running a test to see if having our Prowl intervention period in the afternoon works better than in the morning. Prowl will be after 6th period this week. You can see the Bell Schedule by clicking here. Let us know how it goes!

Thursday, May 23 – Chromebook Check-In

Students will return their Chromebooks during their Language Arts classes. Please read the note on Chromebooks at the end of this Skylert for more information on how you can prepare to return them.

Friday, May 24 – Locker Clean-Out

Students will empty their lockers at the end of the day on Friday, May 24. 

Monday, May 27 – No School (Memorial Day)

Tuesday, May 28 – Normal Schedule, Normal Day

Nothing fancy. 

Wednesday, May 29 – Lagoon Day for 9th Grade Students

9th Grade students are invited to go to Lagoon on Wednesday, May 29. Students can purchase their pass directly from Lagoon by visiting shop.lagoonpark.com and using the discount code ‘Jordan2024’ to purchase a full day pass for $54 (full cost, tax included). You can download the complete flyer here

Buses will take students from SoJo to Lagoon leaving from SoJo at 9:00 am and returning from Lagoon at 5:00 pm. There is no cost to ride the bus, but a permission slip must be turned in to the main office. Download the information/permission form here. Permission forms are due back to the main office by Tuesday, May 28th. Please note that May 29th is a public day at Lagoon, so the park will be open to all patrons from 9:30 am to 9:00 pm. Students who want to stay past 5:00 pm will have to arrange their own return transportation.

Wednesday, May 29 – Field Day for 7th & 8th Graders

We will have shorter classes for 7th and 8th graders, followed by Field Day organized by our SBOs at the end of the day. There will be activities where students might get wet, although getting wet will not be required. The school dress code still applies to all activities.

NOTE: Students who are repeatedly tardy to class or skip class altogether may lose the ability to attend Lagoon Day or Field Day. Similar consequences may be given for repeated or severe behavior incidents.

Thursday, May 30 – Last Day for 7th Grade and Memory Book Signing 

The last day for 7th Grade students is Thursday, May 30. Students will attend the full day from 8:00-3:00. Memory Books will be distributed on Thursday, May 30. If your student is not in attendance, they can pick up their Memory Book in the main office beginning Friday, May 31. We will not distribute Memory Books before May 30. Please read the note on Memory Books at the end of this Skylert for more information. The schedule for our Memory Book Signing Day can be found here.

Friday, May 31 – Last Day for 8th & 9th Grade 

The last day of the 2023-2024 school year is May 31. 8th and 9th Grade students will attend on a half-day schedule. School will be held from 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM. Breakfast will be served. Lunch WILL NOT be served. The schedule for our last day can be found here. Students will not be allowed in the building after 12 pm so that we can have our end-of-year faculty meeting.

Memory Books

There is a list posted by the Main Office of all those who have purchased a Memory Book. If your student wants a Memory Book, please have them check the list to make sure their name is on it!

  • Sales on Skyward are now closed. There will be a CASH ONLY table on Memory Book Day (May 30th) selling whatever supply we have left for $35.
  • Please pay any fines/fees BEFORE May 30th. Students who are missing library books, textbooks, or have Chromebook fines will have their Memory Book held until the item is returned or the fine is paid.
  • Memory Books will be distributed Wednesday, May 30st.
  • Any Memory Books not picked up that day will be available in the Main Office!

Check Student Chromebooks, Library Books, and Fines

We are nearing the end of the year, and now is a good time to check if there are any outstanding fines or fees. There are two places to check: 1. Skyward – to see current fines and fees. 2. Destiny – to see items that are assigned/loaned to each student. If a student has outstanding fines or fees, there may be a delay in picking up their memory book.

If you will be ending the year early for a vacation or other reasons, please turn in your Chromebook before you leave to avoid any charges for an unreturned Chromebook.

All students will return their Chromebooks on Thursday, May 23. Fines will be assessed for Chromebook damage and for missing charging cords. Students with fines will not be able to get their Memory Books, so please check Skyward for any fines before and after May 23. If a student returns a Chromebook that is not theirs, the full cost of a lost Chromebook will be assessed. Chromebook mix ups happen more often than you might think. If there is more than one JSD student in a household or if students complete homework together, they can pick up someone else’s Chromebook. Here is a video to help you check if the Chromebook the student has is the Chromebook they are supposed to have.

Summer Things

SoJo Parking & Access: We will be getting an entirely new parking lot. This means we’ll have limited to no access to the physical school over the summer. We’ll still be here, but you may need to call instead of coming in.

Robotics Camp:  Bingham High School is offering a Robotics Camp June 25-27. More information about registration can be found on this flyer.

SL County Rec Passes: The Salt Lake County Recreation Department is offering free passes to any resident of Salt Lake County under 18 years of age. This means every county pool, rec center, etc. will be open to our students at no cost. Visit any Salt Lake County Rec Center to pick up/turn in an application.

Credit Recovery Options: Current 9th grade students who have failed any required courses have make-up options available to them this summer. You can see the options on this document. You can also contact the SoJo Counseling Department if you have questions. 
JFE Summer Classes: If you’re looking for other support over the summer, the Jordan Family Education Center has a wide variety of classes and other resources. For more, check out their website.
