Students, teachers and staff at Foothills Elementary School kicked off Kindness Week in a unique way. The theme for the week is “Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti,” and that is exactly what they did at the opening assembly. After some singing and dancing about the importance of being kind, confetti cannons sprayed colorful confetti throughout the entire gym, covering everyone from head to foot.
Members of the Fort Herriman Middle School ‘Choose Kind Club’ also talked to the students about why it is important to be kind.
Due to weather and road conditions, many buses are running late this morning as they take extra time to transport students safely to school.
Schools will exercise patience and understanding for students who arrive late.
We urge caution on all roadways and sidewalks. Please give yourself extra time for safe travel.
Also, be aware of slippery conditions while walking on school grounds, in parking lots, sidewalks and other walkways around our schools.
The safety of students, teachers and staff, as well as members of the community, is very important to us.

Construction crews are hard at work on the new Mountain Ridge High School in Herriman. Outside, there is still plenty of work to do on the playing fields as crews wait for drier weather. Inside, classrooms are quickly taking shape along with the gymnasium. Soon, equipment will be arriving for the kitchen and cafeteria.
