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.
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!
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)
