Kindergarten ELP Testing

ELP assessment dates change from year to year, and we find it necessary to make some changes this year due to the Covid-19 impact. 


Grades Pre-K-4 and Kindergarten: Universal screening is canceled this year.

The assessment window for universal Pre-K-4 and Kindergarten was to take place during the month of January. Since students will not be back in school before the last week in January, this testing will not take place this year.


Opt-in Testing will occur.

The opt-in application window for the ELP assessment for preschool and kindergarten is open until February 12, 2021. If you are aware of students who need gifted services in a Magnet ELP program, please encourage the parents to apply.


The application information is on each school website and can also be found on the district ELP website. The online assessment will be administered at the neighborhood schools in March. The 


Neighborhood ELP teacher, Mrs. Bingham will make arrangements for the testing.

Free Dinners Now Available

Starting Oct. 6th, we are partnering with the Utah Food Bank to provide a Kids Café Dinner at nine of our designated school sites. These additional meals will be served as part of the district’s “Grab and Go” meal service program during the hours of 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at select schools. Each child will receive enough food to provide dinner for five days.

Free Dinners are now available from our Grab and Go Lunch Sites

Community COVID Art Quilt

Last spring, our students joined together with Washington Elementary School to create a collaborative art piece that described our community's feelings about school closures, virus fears, time with our families, and remote learning. This piece was presented at our school board meeting earlier this week. This video is a celebration of the success of that project. We hope you enjoy it.
