Update - The Utah Department of Health has requested that we continue to offer a site where they can provide free COVID-19 rapid antigen testing.  The next free COVID testing day for employees and members of our Nebo communities will be today, Monday, March 15, from 2:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. The Utah State Department of Health plans to continue free COVID testing on Mondays and Fridays during the same timeframe until Friday, April 16.

Nebo School District's testing site is the Advanced Learning Center (ALC), located at 161 E. 400 N. in Salem, Utah.  The testing will be a mobile site, so individuals will stay in their vehicle to be tested.  Please pull to the west side of the block and enter the testing area through the west entry.  Signs will be posted to show you how to get to the testing site.  Testing will take place in the garage bay of the vehicle repair/woodshop building on the west side of the campus.  In order to receive your test, the state has requested that each person register before being tested.  The sign-up link is posted below:

Employees of Nebo School District and citizens from local communities can get tested at this free testing clinic, even if they do not have symptoms of COVID-19.  However, the Department of Health encourages anyone who might have any symptoms, even mild ones, to come and get tested. Online registration is encouraged to cut down on any potential delays at the testing site. If you can’t register online, you will be able to register at the site. Identification is required. 

The goal of this testing clinic is to quickly identify people who are currently infectious with COVID-19, including those who may not even know they are infected because they don’t have symptoms. Identifying these individuals will help slow the spread of infection in the community. 

Test results will be emailed to those tested within 30-60 minutes after being tested. 

Testing teams will consist of Utah Department of Health staff, deployed National Guard members, and TestUtah contracted teams.

Upcoming SHARP Survey

Submitted by kylynn.james on Thu, 03/11/2021 - 07:52

Every two years, the state and district conduct a survey regarding student health and risk behaviors.  Information gained from the survey will allow your school district and the State of Utah to continue to provide comprehensive prevention programs for our schools and children.

This year, the State of Utah will be surveying all 10th & 12th graders in their English class.  This survey is optional and anonymous.  Since this survey includes questions regarding risk taking behavior, including drug use, violent behaviors and other personal issues that are not typically discussed in school; parent permission is required for students to participate.  Only students with parent permission will be surveyed.  To ensure that you have received this information, please fill out the permission forms linked below.  If you do not want your student participating in this survey, please indicate so on the permission form.  

Survey Form: https://forms.gle/CejXHBf6NW4URLQ39

Survey Form (en español): https://forms.gle/5y2hknWpn98QQFZB7

Sample Questions from the SHARP survey: 

  • “On how many occasions (if any) have you used marijuana in the past 30 days?”
  • “How many times in the past year have you taken a handgun to school?”
  • “If I had a personal problem I could ask my mom or dad for help?”
  • “When you bought or tried to buy cigarettes in a store during the past 30 days, were you ever asked to show proof of age?”
  • “During the past 30 days, on how many days did you not go to school because you felt you would be unsafe at school or on your way to or from school?
  • “During the past 12 months, how many times were you in a physical fight?”
  • “In an average week when you are at school, on how many days do you go to physical education (PE) classes?

Our intercom and bell system are feeling a little bit "under the weather" at the moment.  Until we get it back up and running again (hopefully by next week) please help your students set alarms on their phones in order to help them get to class on time! Administration, teachers, counselors and staff will be in the hallways encouraging students to get to class!

Thank you for your patience.
