Dear Parents and Students,

Students will take Science Sage Tests April 30 and May 2 this week.  Please have those dates on the calendar to minimize being tardy, or/and absent on those dates.

Please make sure that your child:

  •  Goes to bed early and is well rested
  •  Eats a good breakfast.
  •  Packs a healthy snack/and water.
  •  Has a positive, “I can-do-anything” attitude!
  •  Comes prepared to do his/her best!

Please continue to check Aspire Gradebook weekly, and as regularly as possible with your child, to teach them to be responsible, and to take ownership of their learning.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

On Friday, May 4, 2018, Ogden Preparatory Academy will participate in a reunification drill. This will begin as soon school gets out at 12:45. In order to pick up your student(s), you will need to have a valid, government issued ID and a completed Reunification Card. Your student has been sent home with a Reunification Card. You may also pick one up in the front office before or at the reunification drill. You can put multiple students on one card. However, you will need a different card for each building.
When you get to the school during the drill, please do the following:
  1. Make sure you have your ID and your completed Reunification Card
  2. Get your Reunification Card checked and signed at the Check desk.
    1. Students will only be released to individuals who are listed on the student’s Aspire contact list. Be sure to update your Aspire contact list before the drill.
  3. After your card is checked and initialed by a checker, you will take your card to a runner (they will be shown to you at the drill).
  4. Go with the runner to the reunification area and wait for them to bring your student(s) to you.

In order to make the drill go as smoothly as possible, we ask that you follow the “last name” schedule below to come and pick up your student(s):

12:45-1:15 – A-E
1:15-1:45 – F-J
1:45-2:15 – K-O
2:15-2:45 – P-T
2:45-3:15 – U-Z
3:45 – Drill ends

*Students will not be released outside of the protocols of the drill! The drill ends at approximately 3:45. Students who walk home will only be released at that time.
Estimados padres / tutores,

Para recoger a su(s) estudiante(s), deberá tener una identificación válida emitida por el gobierno y una Tarjeta de Reunificación completa. Su estudiante ha sido enviado a casa con una Tarjeta de Reunificación. También puede recoger una en la oficina antes o durante el simulacro de reunificación.

Cuando llegue a la escuela durante el simulacro, haga lo siguiente:
  1. Asegúrese de tener su identificación y su tarjeta completa de reunificación
  2. Vaya a que le revisen y firmen su tarjeta de reunificación en el área de reviso.
  1. Los estudiantes solo serán entregados a personas que estén en la lista de contactos de Aspire del alumno. Asegúrese de actualizar su lista de contactos Aspire antes del simulacro.
3. Después de que su tarjeta sea revisada y firmada por un revisador, llevará su tarjeta a un corredor (se le mostrarán en el simulacro).
4. Vaya con el corredor al área de reunificación y espere que traigan a su(s) estudiante(s).

Para que el simulacro se haga de la mejor manera posible, le pedimos que siga el cronograma de “apellidos” a continuación para ir a recoger a su(s) estudiante(s):
