Bonneville Parents and Students, 1/18/21
I would like to start off thanking our network 5th grade students and parents. We had a wonderful Viking Night Open House last Wednesday. It is a event that in the past we have been able to open up to everyone but with the COVID restrictions we needed to limit the attendance to just our network 5th grade students allowing them an opportunity to come see how great Bonneville will be for them next.
The night turned out just as planned. Our incoming students and parents were amazing. The night was a huge success even with the restrictions in place. Our community is amazing, and I appreciate the cooperation that you have shown throughout the years. Thank You.
Second semester starts Tuesday January 19, 2021. All students will report to their 1st period 1st semester class to get their 2nd semester schedule and then they will be released to transition to their 2nd semester classes. For distance learners your schedule will be updated in gradebook Tuesday morning as well. Please contact your teachers, by email, asking for directions on how to access their online canvas learning activities.
If a student is missing a period or has two classes during the same period, they may come to the Counseling Center to meet with a school counselor on Tuesday, January 19th. They should come DURING THE PERIOD IN WHICH THEY HAVE A MISSING CLASS OR MORE THAN ONE CLASS IN THE SAME PERIOD.
All other schedule change requests will need to be made online on our Counseling Center website: bonnevillecounseling.weebly.com. Students will fill out the form and continue in their current class schedule until they receive a new schedule from their counselor. Class changes will be made on a limited basis.
The schedule change request form will open on January 20 until the end of the school day on January 22.
Starting Monday, December 7, the following changes will happen:
- All school cafeterias will close on Fridays
- Students can pick up a cold lunch for Friday at the end of the day on Thursdays
- Distance learners can continue to pick up meals at 10:30 every day and will pick up Friday’s lunch on Thursday at that time.

Message from Your Local School Board Member
Dear Community Council Leaders, PTA Leaders, Principals, and other community/municipal leaders:
As hopefully many of you are already aware, Superintendent Martin Bates recently announced his retirement from the Granite School District, effective July 1, 2021. The Board of Education has already begun preliminary efforts to conduct its search for and ultimately hire his replacement. As part of that effort, and as your representative on the Board of Education (and in particular for the Cottonwood High Network of schools), I am seeking input from all members of our community (patrons, teachers, principals, staff, municipal leaders) regarding desired qualifications and characteristics for our new superintendent.
To that end, I have scheduled two “town hall” community Zoom meetings in hopes of obtaining feedback from our network community as follows:
Thursday, January 21, 2021, 7:00-8:00 PM
Monday, January 25, 2021, 5:00-6:00 PM
(zoom link is the same for both meetings)
Individuals may also contact me directly via this email or phone to communicate their input.
The short notice of these town hall meetings is necessitated due to the Board immediately beginning its search for a new superintendent.
Thanks again for making Bonneville such a great place to be.
Bonneville Jr. High
