We are winding down quickly! Just a few more weeks of school and we will be into summer!
With that in mind, please encourage your child to remember that we are still in school and we
need to follow school rules, wear our masks, and be respectful of others. Also, with warmer
weather coming on, please remember our dress code and follow our district policy!

Our students are beginning to prepare for year-end testing. We realize that with the good
weather students are involve in after school activities and also want to be out as long as there
is sunshine! We encourage you to please have your child get plenty of rest, have a good
breakfast, and please encourage him/her to do his/her best! A good attitude means
If you plan to have your child gone for an extended period of time from now until May 20th,
please let your child's teacher know so accommodations can be made. Thank you so much!

Some of you may have noticed the large, green drop-off box in the front of the school! That
box is there to collect gently used books for Tabitha's Way. They are sponsoring a program,
called "READ AND FEED". It is to help children get books throughout the summer months!
Please see the attached flier and if you have any books you would like to give to children, please put them in the big, green box!

We are so excited to be able to have our Track Meets back on the schedule! In order to safely
participate in this activity, Spanish Fork City has asked us to abide by the following guidelines:
Elementary Track Meet Covid-19 Guidelines:
1. The participant MUST be kept home if they have any COVID-19 symptoms.
2. Masks will be required for all participants except while participating in a track event. Masks
will be required while participants are lined up to participate in each event.
3. No spectators will be allowed in the home team bleachers with the students. Social
distancing will be mandatory. If unable to social distance MASKS will be required to be worn
for all spectators.
4. Participants/parents should bring/use hand sanitizer throughout the track meet. Also please
bring bottled water with name to the meet.
5. Follow Nebo School District's dress code.
We also recommend that students dress for any kind of weather, including a jacket and sweat
pants that they can put over their running clothing, bottles of water, sun screen and a hat to
shade their faces.
We could use more volunteer help during the track meet. If you are able to help, please
contact your child's teacher!

Please support PTA by signing up for different positions with the PTA Board for our school.
The PTA does so much for our students, such as providing help in classrooms, raising money
for things like our marquee, our bottle-filling water fountains, and technology! Please help out our students by participating in PTA!

Attention all Parents of 5th and 6th Grade Students,
The Diamond Fork Junior High PTSA would like to take this opportunity to welcome all the
incoming students and parents of Diamond Fork Middle School (DFMS) for the 2021-2022
school year. The PTSA provides activities for students and services to our teachers
throughout the year. It is our hope that every family can participate so we can better serve our
children and our school community. Below is a link to sign up for our PTSA Board and Committee Chairs. As Diamond Fork Middle School is a new school next year, all positions are open and we desperately need volunteers to fill them! This is a great opportunity to be involved and make a positive impact on our children’s school environment. Please sign up TODAY to be a part of Diamond Fork Middle School PTSA. If you have any questions, please contact Jackie Packard, text 801-361-3920 or email jackiehansen123 [at] hotmail [dot] com.

For those interested, there is a Bright Ideas summer workshop for students that are interested
in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) activities. This is a great
opportunity for students to expand their minds and work on problem solving, critical thinking
and creative skills.

Thank you, parents, for following the laws and for driving slowly and carefully when picking up
your child. I see parents slowing down and being considerate of other drivers while picking up
Please also be aware of the following:
*Please do not flip a U-Turn on 300 West. In the morning or afternoon, there are too many students that are walking and crossing the streets, and too many parents driving in and out of the school grounds, that this is an unsafe practice. Please follow the laws!

*Please cross at the intersections and do not have your child cross with you in the middle of
the road. Please be an example of safety!
*If you park in the parking lot, please get out of your car and go and wait for your child so
he/she is not crossing alone in front of buses and cars.
