  • How do we report a student absence?

    To report a student’s absence, please call the absence line at 801-481-4814, ext. 1. Most students will be absent a day or two of school from time to time due to a family emergency or sickness. Parents may EXCUSE up to 8 absences with a call to the school and a written note. On the day that your child needs to miss school, call the office to report the absence. When your child returns, write a short note to turn in to the office or turn in a doctor’s note if you went to the doctor, so that we can verify that the absence was excused. Most children do not need to miss more than 8 days in a school year, but if that occurs bring a note from your doctor and the absence will be marked excused. If you do not call or bring in a doctor’s note when your child is absent, the absence will be marked UNEXCUSED. Too many unexcused absences can result in a court hearing with many possible consequences. By law, Beacon staff must keep track of unexcused absences and must send out citations to parents if there are too many unexcused absences. Help us avoid this by always excusing your child’s absences.

  • What do I need to do when visiting the school?

    All visitors, parents and guardians are required to sign in with the office when you are in school. Please stop by the office to sign in and receive a visitor badge.

  • Where do students and parents go for lost and found?

    Students who find lost articles are asked to take them to the office or place them in the Lost & Found Bin on the lower level near room 124. If your student is missing an item, first have them check the Lost & Found Bin and if not there, check with the office. Please make sure to label your student’s clothes, books, lunch boxes, etc.

    During SEP Conferences, the PTA will set up lost & found tables in the rotunda so students and parents can reclaim lost items. Articles left unclaimed after a reasonable amount of time will be donated. The school does not assume responsibility for lost personal items.
