Continuous Flow Intersection at University Parkway

The intersection at the UVU entrance has been re-designed, and will open just in time to affect the commute of those attending our high school graduations and practices held there. This new intersection type is the first of its kind in Utah County. UDOT has provided some helpful preview information in the Continuous Flow Intersection document provided by UDOT. There is also a video and other details found on their website

We encourage anyone that will be attending graduation at UVU, to review the provided information so that you can "See it before you drive it."

Also Note: The intersection is scheduled to be closed from Friday May 18th 10pm through Tuesday May 22nd 5:30am, which will affect those going to Graduation practice on Monday. There are alternate routes posted in the alternate route document also provided by UDOT.

Hope Squad Donates to a Crisis Hotline

Hope Squad

After working hard to raise suicide awareness during Hope Week, the Hope squad managed to raise a hundred dollars to donate to a nonprofit crisis hotline.  The volunteer accepting the check was exceedingly grateful and explained that a hundred dollars makes a huge difference in their efforts.  Supporting these local organizations extends the reach of the Hope Squad beyond our school's walls and into the community.  Way to go!
