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.
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
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!
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.
