School Security in the Logan City School District
365体育投注下注In response to patron feedback regarding student safety, and in an effort to provide a secure learning environment for students, the Logan City School District has installed secure vestibules at each school’s main entrance. These vestibules will be locked during school hours, and visitors to the school will need authorization from the school’s office staff before they will be granted access to the main building. The vestibules will allow visitors to seek shelter from the weather while limiting their access to the school until approved by school staff.
These procedures are new to our community, and may create delays at times. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to provide appropriate access to the school for our patrons, while providing a secure environment for our students and staff.
School Entry Procedures
Visitors should enter the school at the main entrance. Upon entering the vestibule, all visitors (including parent volunteers) must stop at the security camera to request access to the school. Visitors will be asked their name, and the reason for their visit to the school. If they are coming to see or pick up a particular student, they will be asked for the name of the student they have come to see. 365体育投注下注Visitors may then be granted access to the building.
Upon entering the building, all adults and visitors must proceed to the Main Office where they will be asked to sign in before visiting a classroom.
Today's WOW Wednesday celebrates the next steps in enhancing art education in this amazing District.
As you may recall, the Logan City School District Board of Education, upon gathering several pieces of art owned by the District, auctioned a few pieces and established an Art Endowment for enrichment experiences for students and teachers of the District. It was our honor today to visit the recipients of the first art enhancement grants made possible through this endowment. We wanted to share this with you and our community and look forward to enhancing art experiences on many levels for decades to come. I have attached a press release with detailed information. I also have some pictures of the recipients as we surprised them in their classes today. Please let me know if you have any questions.
365体育投注下注Logan City School District awarded the first round of Art Enhancement Endowment grants
365体育投注下注In October 2018, the Logan City School District Board of Education established an Art Enhancement Endowment created from funds generated from the sale of art pieces owned by the District. The intent of this Endowment is to enhance art education experiences for the students and teachers of the Logan City School District. The grant committee for this endowment met, reviewed applications, and on December 17, 2019, it was our privilege to award the first three grants using funds generated from this endowment.
• Rebecca Hales is a Logan High student who was selected to represent Logan High School as part of the 2020 High School Honors Performance Series. She will be performing at Carnegie Hall in New York in January. We know that she will be a wonderful representative of this community and are thrilled to assist her in this experience.
• Heather Fairbank and Andrea Melnick are Kindergarten teachers at Hillcrest Elementary. They stated, “In Kindergarten, writing begins with drawing. After students are comfortable with drawing detailed narrative elements, they begin to add words to their pictures.” We are confident that this grant for specific art supplies will strengthen these students’ fine motor abilities and help them to become more confident in their self-expression and written communication.
• Monica Alvizures is the music specialist at Adams Elementary. She works closely with Mr. Tom Papiernik and Mr. Dave Gilbert to create cross-curricular experiences in music and dance for the students of Adams Elementary. Together they will be incorporating a folk dance curriculum to help students celebrate various customs and learn traditions from other cultures.
The Logan City School District and District Board of Education are committed to providing enriching art experiences for all students at every grade level. We look forward to utilizing this endowment to enhance these experiences and be sure they are available for years to come.
We are happy to announce the implementation of the SafeUT Crisis & Tipline Services for our students in Logan City School District. SafeUT is a tool designed to provide confidential two-way communication with SafeUT crisis counselors or school staff through the SafeUT Mobile App, phone number, or website.
The SafeUT Services are provided through the University of Utah’s Crisis Center at the University Neuropsychiatric Institute (UNI) and all interactions are handled by licensed clinicians as part of their comprehensive crisis response services. Students who call or start a crisis chat or text through the mobile app or web will connect directly to a UNI crisis counselor at the UNI CrisisLine.
The UNI CrisisLine provides 24/7 crisis intervention and emotional support to anyone in any type of crisis. Students can also use the SafeUT phone app or website to send non-crisis tips to school officials regarding topics such as bullying, cyberbullying, gang activity, drug & alcohol activity, and more. All tips are completely anonymous.
SafeUT helps to provide students with a safe and secure school environment and it provides our school administration with the communication and management tools needed to help and mange on campus situations.
Next week, students will receive training on how to use the SafeUT Crisis & Tipline Services by their school administrators. The SafeUT Mobile App is available in the Apple and Google Play stores. Search “P3 Tips” and select “SafeUT”.
