Jesse Shepherd the Grand Champion!

Jesse Shepherd is at it again! He recently participated in the Central Utah Science and Engineering Fair. After the "Stay Home, Stay Safe" orders were issued, BYU decided to continue to hold the science fair. However, rather than doing all of the judging in person like they had previously planned, they decided to have all of the students submit images of their project concept board, as well as their research plans, abstracts, and answers to prompts from the judges. This process took about a week, after which the judges made final decisions on awards. Jesse was selected as the winner of the U.S. Metric Association Award for the extensive use of the Metric System, 1st Place Plant and Animal Science Winner, and CUSF Grand Champion. Along with these awards, CUSF is presenting him with a $300 check. Also going along with being the Grand Champion, it granted Jesse the opportunity to travel to Anaheim, California for the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair. This would be his second time attending the fair, along with 2,000 other students from 82 countries throughout the world. Sadly, because of the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, Regeneron and the Society for Science and the Public have decided to cancel the fair for this year. The Society has made them Alumni and the title of "Finalist" to Regeneron ISEF 2020. Jesse hopes to return to the fair next year after testing for four more infectious poultry diseases and viruses, as well as refining the current egg yolk test, and testing the shelf-life of blood serum for the detection of antibodies: all of this equating to over 3,000 data points. WHAT A ROCKSTAR!! 

UVU Concurrent Enrollment Grading Policy During COVID-19

Dear High School Partners,

Thank you for your patience during this time of transition. After careful consideration, Utah Valley University has decided on the following course of action regarding spring 2020 grading. 

New Grading Options - Spring 2020

UVU will provide an option for students to elect to receive either a regular letter grade or a credit/no credit (CR/NC) on their transcripts for courses that converted to an online format this spring. This is a one-semester only option. Students will have until April 24th to make their choice. It is imperative that students thoroughly evaluate their situation to be sure the decision minimizes potential negative consequences in the future. To ensure adequate evaluations have been done, concurrent enrollment students will be required to consult their instructor and academic advisor before selecting the CR/NC grading option. As mentioned above, letter grades are still available for students who prefer that traditional grading method.

Instructor Role: Inform student of their grade/standing in the course. By providing current grading information, it allows the student to make a more informed decision. If the decision is to proceed with the CR/NC grading option, please refer the student to his or her concurrent enrollment academic advisor  for additional instructions.

Concurrent Enrollment Academic Advisor Role: The student’s CE advisor will explain potential consequences and ramifications of a decision to forego a course letter grade in favor of a CR/NC grading option. If their decision is to proceed with the CR/NC option, the student’s academic advisor will provide additional instructions to the student on how to officially complete the CR/NC process.

Please note: Full-year CE courses are not eligible for the CR/NC grading option as most coursework leading into this fourth term has already been completed. 

Live Interactive Courses - Summer 2020 

UVU is moving all summer semester courses to an online delivery model. This decision was made out of respect for the safety of students and faculty.

During this time of rapid change, we understand these announcements may present challenges for some. Please reach out if you need further support or have additional questions.

Sincerely,

Concurrent Enrollment Staff 

 

From Mrs. Seale: 

Hi everyone

UVU has put together a COVID-19 webpage that gives detailed information about grading options for our students.  Please take a moment to scroll through the Spring 2020 Grading information so you can understand these options for your students.

I have tried to highlight the most important pieces of information below.

Students have 3 options for UVU grading in concurrent enrollment courses:

Option 1 - Letter Grade (strongly recommended!) – Students are strongly encouraged to KEEP GOING and work to receive a letter grade (A – E) for their course.  Keep with it and don't give up!

Option 2 - Credit/No Credit grade - Choose to receive a CR or NC grade by completing the Grade Mode Selection Form by April 24.  Please counsel with your instructors before choosing this option.   Choosing a CR or NC (credit or no credit) grade may have some negative consequences (Read "Understand the Potential Consequences" for more information).

Option 3 - Withdrawal - Withdraw from the course using myUVU by April 24.  This will result in a 'W' on your UVU transcript and will NOT affect your college GPA.  Both full year and semester courses are eligible for withdrawal.

A message from the counselors to our students: WE MISS YOU! We want you to know that we are here for you and want to offer support to students in any way that we can.  We have a counselor at the school each day, and you may contact them by phone or email as necessary. In light of the recent announcement that we will not be returning to school this year, please know that our hearts go out to you as your High School years are precious, and a time you can't ever get back.  To our Class of 2020, we love you and hope that some day some how we will get to see you again and say our goodbyes! We have loved our time spent with you.  We want all students to remember during this difficult time that we can still find happiness in this moment.  We want to remind you of the "21-day challenge" that we were engaged in prior to the school dismissal. We encourage you to still participate in this practice and record in the journals that were given to you. We know that this is one of many ways that can help you to stay positive during this time. Please reach out if there is anything we can do to help! Also, check out our counseling website for valuable Mental Health Resources. https://sfhscounseling.wixsite.com/sfhs We wish you all the best!

Dear Parents/Guardians:

As you may have heard, Governor Herbert and State Superintendent Sydnee Dickson have extended the “soft school closure” until the end of the school year. Although we are disappointed that we will not be able to work with students in our usual manner, we understand why the decision was made and fully support them. That being said, we now will need to address a variety of very unique situations.

Our hearts go out to the Senior Class of 2020. The senior year is a very important part of the K-12 school experience. Please know that we are exploring ways that we can address issues specific to 12th grade students such as graduation, yearbook signing, grading, credit, etc. Any suggestions or ideas from parents and students should be sent to their school administration. You will be receiving more detailed information regarding those events as details are finalized.

There have been questions asked about possible changes to the lunches being served and the current school year calendar. Please be aware that we will follow the 2019-2020 school year calendar as posted. The last day of school will be May 22. Lunches will continue to be served at locations throughout the district.

The goal of Nebo School District and local schools is to continue to provide your student with a quality education through an online curriculum. Teachers will continue to provide online learning experiences and will be communicating through email or other online platforms throughout the remainder of the school year. Although these learning conditions are not ideal, we are extremely appreciative of the efforts made by teachers, parents, and students to adjust to this temporary method of instruction.

If you or your student are experiencing difficulties adapting to online learning or are in need of assistance, please reach out to your student’s teacher, counselor, or principal. There are many resources available for those in need.

Nebo School District and your local schools will continue to communicate with you as we find solutions to the variety of challenges that are being sent our way. We would like to thank you for your patience and support as we continue to navigate this challenging situation. We truly believe that by working together, we will be able to successfully complete this school year.

Sincerely,

Scott Wilson
Assistant Superintendent
