Sept. 2018 message

Dear Community,

There is nothing like the first few weeks of school, and seeing the smiles and renewed energy within our hallways. I would like to personally welcome our new and returning students, staff and families, and hope you take time to review this back-to-school edition of Cornerstone.

This newsletter provides photos from our summer orientations and first week of school, as well as important updates regarding our school safety initiatives.

With the latter, please review pages 2 and 3 which detail our:

• safety and security efforts with staff trainings;

• refined protocols for building entry;

• team of security staff;

• partnerships with the Ogden Police Department and Monroe County Sheriff’s Office; and

• helpful resources.

Keeping our community and families updated on our safety initiatives will be a proactive focus in our communications this year. It is important to reiterate that schools remain the safest environment for students.

I am grateful that our efforts continue to be proactive, with enhancements based on forethought and guidance from experts in the field. We do so many things well, and it’s critical that we continue to build on these efforts.

Thank you for your support of our continued efforts to provide a safe learning community.


Dan Milgate

Superintendent of Schools
