Attendance - A top priority at Nibley Park School (K-8) is student achievement and maximizing instructional minutes. Tardies and absences are major disruptions to the learning environment and student learning. Students miss the introduction and instructions to the day’s lesson, and we want each student present, engaged and ready to learn. SB219 put a moratorium on truancy enforcement, and that law expired in July 2022. We want to make you aware of this change and the Salt Lake City School District’s policies regarding attendance, absences and tardies. It is important for you to know how this will impact your children and their education. Students who have excessive absences will receive a letter from our school. If your student is ill, please either send a note or call the office to excuse the absence(s). If you are travelling, please let your child’s teacher and the school know in advance. We want each student at Nibley our school to be successful, develop healthy habits, and Be the Best That They Can Be.
