School Registration is open in Infinite Campus.  Click on the Registration tab on the DFJH webpage.


A student can register in one of the following ways:
1. As a full time student at DFJH - which means the student comes to school for each class, just like in a normal year.  Everyone must wear a mask to school.  School hours are 8:00 - 1:55
2. As a Dual Learner - partial DFJH student and partial online student - this means the student can attend a couple of classes at DFJH and do a couple of classes online either with Utah Students Connect (USC) or with another provider
3. As a full time REMOTE LEARNER through Nebo School District and Utah Students Connect (USC) - this means that all of the student's classes are done online with USC.  Students take 6 classes not 7.  

If you choose to do dual learning, parents will need to go to the district offices to fill out a home school affidavit. 

If you choose to do the REMOTE LEARNING (all classes with USC), parents will need to fill out a form.  This form is attached at the bottom of the "Counseling Documents" page - which can be accessed by clicking it above. 

 

_______________________________________________________

Remote Learners (full time at USC) - We will add your classes as soon as possible to Utah Students Connect.  At the moment, the process to load full time students is not functional.  Once it is ready, we will load your classes.  7th and 8th graders will have a set schedule.  9th graders - please email Ms. Parrot at leslie.parrott@nebo.edu with the elective classes you choose

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Dual Learners - Please email your grade level counselor with the names of the classes you will take online and the classes you choose to take at the school.

La inscripción escolar está abierta en Infinite Campus.  haga clic en la pestaña "Registration" en la página web de DFJH.

Un estudiante puede registrarse de una de las siguientes maneras:

1. Como estudiante de tiempo completo en DFJH, lo que significa que el estudiante viene a la escuela para cada clase, como en un año normal. Todos deben usar una máscara para ir a la escuela. El horario escolar es de las 8:00 a 1:55 
2. Como estudiante "Doble Aprendizaje" - parcial de DFJH y estudiante parcial en línea: esto significa que el estudiante puede tomar algunas clases en DFJH y hacer algunas clases en línea con Utah Students Connect (USC) o con otro proveedor
3. Como APRENDIZAJE REMOTO a tiempo completo a través del Distrito Escolar de Nebo y Utah Students Connect (USC), esto significa que todas las clases del estudiante se realizan en línea con USC. Los estudiantes toman 6 clases, no 7.

Si eligen hacer una opción con el aprendizaje en línea, los padres tienen que ir a las oficinas del distrito para completar una declaración jurada de la escuela en casa.

Si eligen hacer el APRENDIZAJE REMOTO (todas las clases con USC), los padres deberán completar un formulario. Este formulario se adjunta en la parte inferior de la página "Documentos de asesoramiento", a la que se puede acceder haciendo clic arriba.

Dear Parents and Students,

During this time of uncertainty, we as counselors would like you to be aware that we are here to offer support to students in need.  A counselor will be at the school each day. You may contact them by email or phone as necessary. Please keep in mind that students who need to meet in person with a counselor will need to make an appointment, we can do video chat or make a phone call.

We would like to encourage our students to remain positive and hopeful.  The book The Happiness Advantage, by Shawn Achor offers some suggestions that students may follow that will help them to stay positive during this time.  These include:

  1. List 3 things each day that you are grateful for.
  2. Commit Conscious Acts of Kindness for someone each day.
  3. Find something to look forward to. 
  4. Exercise.

These things may seem simple, but research has shown that people who do these things on a regular basis are happier.  All of us will encounter times in our lives when we hope things will get better. Staying positive during those times will help us get through them.

The following link is a short talk by Shawn Achor that you might find helpful:    https://www.ted.com/talks/shawn_achor_the_happy_secret_to_better_work?language=en

_______________________________________________________________________________________________ 

 

Here are some other resources to support you during this time:

Stand 4 Kind

 
All students are welcome to join Stand 4 Kind.  We do activities during the year to promote kindness, friendship, and fun!  We will start in September :)

Plan for College:

As part of a new Parent University Series on College & Career Readiness, Nebo School District offers free monthly webinars on the college planning process for parents and their high school students.  Statistics show that less than 9% of all students who enter a 4 year college both graduate in 4 years and do so without debt.  We believe timely information from industry professionals could dramatically move that needle. 

College Success Formula is broadcasting nationally, so please register and if you can’t watch the live broadcast, you will have access to the recording for 30 days after each webinar.  Click on the following link to register for one or many.  www.CollegePlanningWebinars.com

Please sign up to gain access to the recording for 30 days after each webinar.  Sign up for one or many.  www.CollegePlanningWebinars.com

*The mention of a business or service in this flyer does not imply an endorsement by the district.*

15 apps parents should look out for on their kids' phones

 
  • The first is 'MeetMe,' an app where teens can easily be in contact with users much older than them, with an emphasis on dating.
  • 'WhatsApp' and 'SnapChat' are for messaging, but what you should know is teens can send unlimited messages, have video chats and even share their live location with other users, people they may not even know. 
  • 'Skout' is a flirting app that's used to meet and chat with new people. Teens and adults are in different groups, but ages aren’t verified. 
  • 'TikTok' is used for sharing user created videos that can contain bad words, even adult content.
  • 'Badoo' and 'Bumble' are dating apps for adults, but teens can still find ways to join. 
  • 'Grindr' is geared towards the LGBTQ community. It allows users to share photos and meet up based on phone’s GPS location.  
  • 'Kik' is specifically for kids, but anyone can join and anyone can contact or direct message your child. 
  • 'LiveMe' is a live streaming app, but you don’t know who’s watching and your kids location is revealed.
  • 'Holla' is all about connecting strangers around the world through video chat. Enough said. 
  • 'Whisper' is a social confessional where kids can remain anonymous, but still share their feelings. And it can reveal your child’s location for a meet up. 
  • 'ASKfm' encourages people to allow anonymous users to ask them questions, which opens the door for online bullying.
  • 'Hot or Not' rates users on attractiveness.. There’s no age verification and users can send each other messages. 
  • And lastly, 'Calculator%' apps are several secret apps that allows kids to hide their photos, videos, even browser history.
