Principal's Message

Principal’s Message

As we kick off 2017 and are experiencing Utah’s winter wonderland, I wanted to inform you that we at Emerson are concerned about the air quality in our city and keeping our students healthy and safe during recesses.  Emerson complies with Board Policy G-9: Outdoor Air Quality and the Recess Guidance for Schools in terms of keeping students indoors for recess when necessary.  Please show your support by complying with the Idle Free City Ordinance by turning off your vehicle after 2 minutes of idling when dropping off and picking up your student(s).  We must all work together to reduce air pollution in our city and give our kids a healthy environment.

Thanks for supporting Emerson!

Ms. Reynolds


Please look under Policies and Procedures for new information on HB175 regarding volunteering.  Contact April Reynolds for addtional information if needed.

Box Tops

Help Emerson earn money by clipping Box Tops.  Emerson’s goal is to collect $1,000! All money goes to funding teacher grants and supplies. Click here for more information.


When choosing a day care for your child, you may want to ask them about transportation.  A few examples of questions are:  where is the pick up and drop off area, do they prefer morning or full day for kindergarten, do they transport early for breakfast or do they serve it at their center?  Visit the center at different times of the day, ask about activities, policies, etc.  Below are listed the day cares that have served Emerson.
