News & Announcements

Earth Day

According to Earthday.Org, on April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans protested for a healthy, sustainable environment. By the end of that year, the first Earth Day had led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. Fifty-one years later, the annual Earth Day celebration continues. Earthday.Org’s theme for this year is Restore Our Earth. It focuses on natural processes and emerging green technologies that can restore the world's ecosystems.

Notes of Appreciation

May 3-7 is Teacher Appreciation Week and we need your help. Please leave us a note about a teacher who has made a positive impact. Notes will be posted on the TCSD social media sites and also shared with the teacher. Thank you.

Masks are still the rule at school

Even though the statewide mask mandate will be lifted on April 10, the mask requirements for K-12 schools will remain in place until June 15. Local officials, like a school board or county council, do not have the legal authority to end the school mask requirement before this date.

Mask mandate still in place for schools

A bill approved by Utah lawmakers during the 2021 legislative session ends the state’s mask mandate starting April 10. Although the state of Utah will lift the statewide mask mandate, schools in the state are exempt from the legislation. Tooele County School District will continue to follow all previously established health guidelines.

Utah's School Climate Survey

In the Student and School Safety Assessment Bill, (HB120), the State Board of Education was directed to create an anonymous School Climate Survey to be administered to students, parents, teachers, staff, administrators, and school resource officers. We are requesting parents/guardians take a moment to complete the survey for their student's school. Thank you!

Tooele County School District’s School Climate Surveys 2021

Tooele County School District is participating in a survey project organized by the Utah State Board of Education focusing on school climate. School climate can be defined as the quality and character of school life. We can improve school climate when we understand the thoughts, feelings, and experiences of members of a school’s community. The feedback we collect from families, students, teachers and staff through these school climate surveys will help us identify specific strengths and weaknesses within each school. This information is essential in our effort to make our schools places where students can learn and where everyone feels safe and welcome.

Tooele County School District is working on enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year. To help with this process, we need to know where your student plans on going next school year. This survey takes only a few minutes. Please repeat for each student enrolled with Tooele County School District. Thank you for your time!

Power Surge

We would like to notify you that there was a vehicle accident on West Vine St. in Tooele around 10 a.m. today, (February 23), where the vehicle hit a transformer pole. This caused multiple schools to experience a power surge, as well as lose power for a short period of time. There was a message sent from Rocky Mountain Power to certain schools to unplug electronic devices. This message was sent as a precaution and all electronics have been re-plugged in. This did not impact the heat, light, or meals served during the school day. Thank you for your understanding as we work through this unforeseen issue. (Impacted schools include: CLC/Blue Peak High, Grantsville Elementary, Northlake Elementary, Settlement Canyon Elementary, Tooele Jr. High, Tooele High, West Elementary, Willow Elementary)
