Principal's Message

Dear Emerson Families,

Wow, we have nearly made it to winter break! We have survived windstorms, power outages, long school board meetings, and other adventures. Thank you for supporting your students through all of these challenges.

The annual Emerson food drive raised $3216 which is 12,248 meals. In addition, we collected several carts of food that was donated to the Utah Food Bank. This effort helped support many families in the community experiencing food insecurity during the holiday season. Your generous contributions are appreciated. Thank you to Mr. Craner for organizing this annual event.

The Winter Wonderland holiday gift giving initiative is underway. Thank you for your contributions for Emerson families in need. Amazon orders are being submitted and gifts are being delivered to homes. Thank you to our counselor Zoe Romero and Linda Caywood in the office for organizing this endeavor. The generosity of the Emerson community never ceases to amaze me.

Emerson is beginning the planning process for providing in-person instruction as an option for our students beginning January 25. Currently, we are gathering information from teachers and families that is critical to this planning process. We are working with the Emerson school improvement council (SIC) and school community council (SCC) to provide input to as we develop a plan for student re-entry to school. As information becomes available, it will be communicated to you via school messenger. Thank you for your patience as we work through this complex undertaking.

Wishing our students, families, faculty, and staff a joyful, relaxing, and safe holiday season

Ms. Reynolds
