End of Term March 22
Last night the Wasatch County School Board met in an emergency board meeting called for the purpose of discussing student safety and security. As a School Board, our top priority is the safety of our children. We would like to commend school district employees and students who appropriately responded to a threat to the safety of our students. We also encourage our community to continue with the “see something, say something” slogan. Communication between parents, students and school staff is a great way to improve the community we live in. We also recommend that parents and students download and become familiar with SafeUT Smart Phone App (A Crisis Text and Tip Line, which is a statewide service that provides real-time crisis intervention to youth through texting and a confidential tip program – right from a smartphone.)
We are committed to doing everything possible to ensure the safety of our students. We have set aside the evening of March 8 at 6:30 p.m., in the Wasatch High School Auditorium, for a public meeting during which we will present information and receive community feedback regarding the security of our schools. For more information please see this page on our website. We appreciate the partnership we enjoy with the Heber City Police Department and Wasatch County Sheriff’s Office and thank them for the professional manner in which they have performed their duties.
For the immediate future, we have arranged with law enforcement to place a full-time officer and or deputy in each of our schools, as well as one additional officer at Wasatch High School.

Wasatch County School District and law enforcement officials have again (on February 28, 2018) been notified of a social media post that made reference to school violence. In response to the post, the Heber City Police Department has taken a Wasatch High School student into custody. According to Chief Dave Booth, the student didn’t understand the consequences of this type of post.
We appreciate the quick action of the student who saw the post and followed the concept of “If you see something, say something.” This concept has proven effective and we encourage our students and all members of the community to continue to notify law enforcement or school officials of any threats.
Wasatch County School District and local law enforcement agencies are committed to doing everything possible to keep our children safe and will continue to take all threats seriously. There will continue to be a law enforcement officer in every school indefinitely.
Parents, please take some time to discuss with your children the seriousness of posting any type of threat or anything that could be perceived as a threat on social media.

Young children, ages 3-5, with severe delays in language, motor, cognitive, or adaptive development can receive a free and appropriate education in our preschool program.
Services, which include assessment, instruction, and evaluation, are also provided for students who qualify under federal and state guidelines, ages five to twenty-two (and have not graduated from high school).
In order to receive special education services, a student's disability must interfere with their ability to benefit from education without specialized instruction. A student whose disability does not need specialized instruction to benefit from education but could appropriately utilize specific interventions could possibly qualify for accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504. These services are provided in all our district schools and are available for anyone who resides within our district boundaries.
If you know of anyone who might qualify and would be interested in taking advantage of these special services or if you have any questions about any of these programs, contact Ben Springer at Wasatch School District Offices, 654-0280.
