Reminder of COVID-19 Nebo School District Guidelines:

Quarantine Guidelines for a non-household exposure to COVID-19:

  • It is recommended that these exposed students/staff remain at home for up to 10 days, unless they: are immunized, or have had a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the past 90 days, or choose to wear a face mask at school for 10 days after the exposure.
  • If non-symptomatic through day 7 they may test for COVID-19 and resume regular school attendance.

Quarantine Guidelines for a household exposure to COVID-19:

  • It is recommended that these exposed students/staff remain at home for 10 days from the last exposure to the positive individual.
  • Isolation Guidelines for a student who tested positive to COVID-19: you should stay isolated from other people for at least 10 days, starting the first day you exhibited symptoms, or if non-symptomatic 10 days from testing. After 10 days, you can come out of isolation if you have been fever-free for 24 hours, AND your symptoms have improved.
Attendance Office Number: 801-798-4070
  • Detention Hours: Last year SFHS started calculating detention hours for students. For every tardy there will be 15 minutes added to students detention hours, 30 minutes for a late tardy, 60 minutes for an unexcused absence, and 90 minutes for a sluff. We are still encouraging students who are sick to stay home, but please call attendance at 801.798.4060 or email shanda.jensen@nebo.edu to excuse the absence. The detention report will be ran Friday afternoon so we encourage you to excuse your student before then. If students go above 3 hours of detention they will not be able to participate in extracurricular activities. If they are below 3 hours they do not need to serve detention. Students should serve detention with their teachers before or after school. Students can also serve detention during lunch in Mrs. Applegate's room (25).
  • Please check your email weekly to get updates on your students detention hours. If you do not receive an email then your student currently has zero hours

* School Fees can be paid either online at MySchoolFees.com or by coming to the finance office Monday-Friday between 7:30am-3:00pm. (Fees for Secondary schools are not available on Infinite Campus.)
