    TO:     ALL Parents and Students at Tooele High School, 2017-2018

 

FROM:       Jeffrey D. Hamm, Principal, Tooele High School

 

Dear Parents and Students:

 

Welcome back to Tooele High School for the 2017-2018 school year--this is going to be an exciting new experience for ALL of us!!  Just wanted to share a couple of additional reminders and/or items of information related to the calendar below, as follows:

 

  • Back-to-School Night is TONIGHT from 4:00-6:00 p.m.: As usual, our BtSN this year will be an “open house” format, where parents can come and meet with their children’s teachers any time from 4:00-6:00 p.m. We will have maps available for parents to help find their student’s teachers, and we can print schedules as needed.

 

  • Friday Night Lights: As everyone probably knows by now, our new track and football field project is still under construction. Specifically, the new building that will house our concessions and restrooms will not be done--nor will the new track surfacing be finished--for our first home game this coming Friday, August 25. 

 

However, we have contingency plans in place . . . 

 

New this year, we are creating a “concession alley” along the little strip of 100 South that runs just outside our auditorium, between the crosswalks.  This is where you will be able to find ALL our student group concessions and fundraisers (including football, at least until their new concession stand opens!).  To this end, we will be closing “Buffalo Boulevard” during ALL our home (varsity) football games beginning @ approximately 5:30 p.m., in order to better protect our patrons, our visitors, and our vendors.  Both student parking lots on the East and West sides will remain open; you will just need to access them from their respective entry ways on either side. 

 

And as far as the restrooms go, portable toilets will be brought in and housed on the North end of the field by the ticket booth for as long as they are needed up through our Homecoming game with Ogden on Friday, September 29.

 

  • Community Council Elections: This year, for the first time in a while, we have more volunteers for our Community Council (7) than we have slots available to serve (5). Which means that we will need to have an election, as required by law.  To this end, our Community Council elections will be held Monday-Wednesday, September 11-12-13 during school hours, up to and including our first Parent-Teacher Conference from 4:00 -7:00 p.m.  The ballot box will be accessible in the front office during this time, after which we will count the ballots and notify everyone of the results.    

 

  • School Pictures: Just like last year, our school pictures will be taken next Tuesday-Wednesday, August 29-30 during your students’ regularly-scheduled English classes.
