Bond Meeting @ SFHS Oct 4 6 pm

Attributions: 

Oct 4 at 6 pm in the SFHS library, there will be an in-person bond meeting.  Then on Tuesday, November 6, Nebo School District residents will have the opportunity to vote on the important bond proposal.  Please visit www.nebo.edu/bond2018, where you will find relevant facts you need in order to make an informed decision about the bond proposal on the ballot.

Nebo School District continues to grow by approximately 500 students per year.  Due to this growth, the proposed bond was initiated after more than a year of research and planning by district personnel and input from parents, guardians, and local government officials.  The proposed bond aims to accommodate growth and prepare for the future through the following projects:

  1. Building three new middle schools (one each in the Salem Hills High School catchment area, Maple Mountain High School catchment area, and Springville High School catchment area)
  2. Rebuilding Payson High School, Spanish Fork High School, and Springville High School
  3. Implementing a straight alignment pattern which means each middle school will feed into a single junior high, and each junior high will feed into a single high school (rather than splitting), so students can attend school with their peers through the completion of high school

Nebo School District is pleased that there will be no tax rate increase with this bond. This is possible because past bonds were structured in a way that kept debt ratios low and we have been aggressively paying off previous bonds.

More detailed information regarding the proposed bond can be found on our website at www.nebo.edu/bond2018.  The website contains videos, voter information, voting locations, and other information that may help you make an informed decision regarding the proposed bond.

If you would like to visit with us in person regarding the bond, four area meetings have been scheduled for your convenience:

  • September 26: 6 p.m. at Payson High School
  • October 3: 6 p.m. at Springville High School
  • October 4: 6 p.m. at Spanish Fork High School

The bond proposal is a plan that will impact the future of our students and community for years to come.  We hope that you will engage in the process with us and mail your ballot on or before November 5.

Please join us for a free community substance abuse prevention training "High in Plain Sight" on Thursday, September 27 from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. in the MMHS auditorium.  This presentation will explain current drug trends, including identifiers, logos, and clothes to demonstrate possible high-risk behaviors in youth. This presentation explains the current drug & alcohol terms in simple language for each attendee to apply what they learn in their community, school, or even at home.

These new trends are very popular and it is important for concerned adults to understand these sweeping changes in the drug culture.

Our school will be hosting a screening of the film, AngstAngst is a 56-minute film that explores anxiety- its causes, effects and what we can do about it. With Anxiety being so prevalent, we have seen a need to inform parents, teachers and students and provide them with resources and tools. We will be providing a screening for all parents on Tuesday, September 18th at 7 PM in the auditorium. We strongly encourage you to come to our parent night. We will also have a child psychologist and representatives from different private providers in our community available to help answer questions on that evening. On Thursday, September 20th we will be showing this movie to all students during school. If you do not want your student to view this movie, we will be providing “opt out” forms in the front office and your student can be excused to go to the library/overflow instead of viewing the film. If you have more questions regarding the movie you can visit this website to find out more about it. https://angstmovie.com/
