Information About Checking Students Out 
Jordan School District has changed the policy in regards to emergency contacts and checking students out.
The purpose of emergency contacts in Skyward is to provide a secondary method for contacting the parent/guardian when they are not readily or immediately available to the school.  In most cases those listed as an emergency contact are not the parent/guardian and do not have the authority to excuse a students school attendance.
Emergency contacts may not excuse a students attendance nor check them out of school.  However, an emergency contact may pick up and/or deliver a student when a parent/guardian excuses a students attendance and authorizes that person to do so.
The authorization should be done via phone or email that matches information in Skyward.
If you have any questions in regards to this policy please feel free to contact us at the school.
801-254-0737.

Kindness is Cool - Chalk Art Activity

Here are some pictures of the AMAZING chalk art that the Herriman High School Art Club did for our students!  Kindness is Cool!...and so are the amazing art kids!  What talent! Thanks to the HHS Art Club!


Warm Welcome Day!

Our students were greeted with signs, positive messages, smiles and high fives as they arrived back to school from Spring Break on Monday. It was thanks, in part, to a group of Bingham and Herriman High students who are members of the Golden Gate Club. The Bingham and Herriman students along with club members from Paradigm, Orem and Farmington High Schools came to BCE as part of our “Warm Welcome Day.” Their warm welcome brought big smiles to the faces of students, teachers, staff and parents. Even local police and firefighters pitched in to welcome the elementary school students back. The high school students then took time visiting classrooms sharing a message of kindness and the ripple effect one kind act can have each and every day.

Thanks to everyone who participated in “Warm Welcome Day,” for rolling out such a warm welcome and sharing a great message of kindness, love and support.
