Our district still has funds available through the K-12 Broadband Grant that we received from the state. The grant provides reliable home internet access for students whose families may not otherwise be able to afford it. The goal is to ensure that all students have access to online instruction.

To apply for the K-12 Broadband Grant online, visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VRBRBLR.

Applications are also available at the district office or in the office of your child’s school. Paper applications should be returned to the school or the district office once they are completed.

More information about the grant can be found here: https://www.uintah.net/news/what_s_new/usd_awarded_broadband_grant.

Finally, first trimester ends on Thursday, Nov. 19. Students will not have classes on Friday, Nov. 20, which is a Professional Development Day for district employees. Second trimester begins Monday, Nov. 23.

Have a great weekend!
