♦Free School Lunch
We wanted to provide information to you regarding the free lunch announcement from yesterday. You received an email from the Jordan School District letting you know that Nutrition Services will begin offering meals at no cost to all enrolled students beginning Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2020, at all school locations. That means no students will be charged for breakfast or lunch.
We want to remind those students that are learning at home or online that they may come and get lunch from 11:00-12:30 MONDAY-THURSDAY by coming to the cafeteria door on the northeast side of the building and ring the doorbell. A staff member will let the students in to get their lunch and then they will exit the same cafeteria door with their lunch to go home and eat. We are asking that if you would like lunch for your child to please call the office and let us know so that we can make sure we have enough lunches available.
On FRIDAY all enrolled students are invited to come and get a grab and go lunch from 11:00-12:30. If your student has been invited by their teacher to come to school on Friday then they will eat lunch in the cafeteria during their assigned time. If you were not invited by the teacher you may come and get lunch from 11:00-12:30 by coming to the cafeteria door on the northeast corner of the building. Students will ring the doorbell and a staff member will let them in to get their lunch. We are asking if you want lunch on Friday please call the front office and let us know so we can make sure we have enough lunches available.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact the front office.

Hello Falcon Families,
I can’t thank you enough for your support during our opening. Our students are doing AMAZING with all of the new routines and procedures. I am VERY proud of them!!! Your children might have told you about Falcon Tickets. They earn these tickets from teachers and staff in our building for following the rules, being good friends, and even doing a good job wearing their mask! We go into classes and pull tickets each Monday! Ask your children if they have gotten a Falcon Ticket recently.
I have a couple of reminders for you. Please be aware of our handicap parking stalls, unless you have a placard, do not park there. We have students and parents at our school who require the use of those spots. We have changed our Falcon Pride Day to Thursday since we are not all in school together on Fridays. Please have your child wear their Falcon Shirt on Thursday to show their school spirit. The PTA will send out order forms for new shirts soon. Please help us with our parent drop off and pick up lot. In the morning, it would help us if you would pull all the way down. Do not park near the cafeteria doors to drop your children off. This creates unnecessary traffic on 3200 West with a long line of parents waiting to drop off their children.
We are excited for the end of the month to kick-off our new Golden Gate Program. This is a pro-social program started at Bingham High to help teach students how to be inclusive of others. Each month we will have a pledge that students will learn about, have lessons on, and practice. To learn more about this program visit their website https://goldengatemovement.org/about-us/ We know that this program will be a great addition to our school!
Thank you for a great start to this year!
♦Virtual Back to School Night!
