INSIDE MORNINGS – Winter weather is soon here, and with it, there are lots of questions regarding our procedures regarding cold weather concerns.  Students are expected to wait outside in the morning and go outside to recess throughout the day unless: the air quality is poor, if the temperature feels like it is below 22 degrees Fahrenheit, or if the precipitation is such that students will get soaked if they stay outside.   If administration calls an inside morning, we open the hallway doors and have students go from breakfast right to class when the bus arrives or they are dropped off.

VIVINT GIVES BACK is back for 2023 Holiday giving.  All students at East Midvale will be gifted Santa bags before the winter break.  More details to come.

FREE WIFI INTERNET – Canyons District continues to provide free internet for families through Comcast Internet Essentials.  To enroll, reply to this post or call Mrs. McCall at East Midvale at 801 826 8406.  Ask for a Comcast Code.  Then call Comcast at 1-844-963 0178 with the code.
