Welby Mission and Vision:
We are a community of learners.
We are students, parents, teachers, and staff working together to create a culture of learning to conquer hard things and grow together. We will create a safe environment where mistakes are a stepping stone to success through data driven, collaborative, and reflective practices.
Dear Welby Wildcat Students, Parents, and Patrons,
Our staff (big up to Mrs. Maples) helped put together a slideshow showing how much we miss working with our students.
We want everyone to take care of their health, look out for the health of others, and to continue doing their best.
Our Wildcat Staff look forward to working with you again as soon as possible.
Aaron Ichimura, Principal
The Jordan School District Board of Education and Administration are developing a plan for the opening of schools in the Fall. We intend to offer both at-home and in-person options. On Tuesday, June 23, the Board of Education met and finalized our list of priorities which will now guide the Superintendent and his Cabinet as they work out the details of the plan. Here are the Board’s priorities:
- Ensure the safety of students and employees.
- Provide options that allow parents and employees to choose what is best for their situation.
- Safeguard the mental and social health of students and employees.
- Obtain feedback and communicate well with all stakeholders.
- Allow flexibility and adaptability.
- Eliminate barriers to success.
The Superintendent will present the details of the plan to the Board at our next meeting on July 6. If approved by the Board at that time, information will be sent to parents and employees shortly after that meeting. The Board will meet again on July 28 and approve any further details needed. Any adjustments to the plan will be sent to all parents and employees as they are approved.
If you have any questions or comments during this process, reply to this email to contact me directly.
