For the coming school year, students interested in enrolling in a Salt Lake City school, who live outside the district or desired school boundaries, may submit an Open Enrollment Application during the Early Enrollment period from December 1, 2017 through February 16, 2018. Applications are taken in the Student Services Department of the Salt Lake City School District Administration Building (440 East 100 South).

Students may apply for enrollment in schools designated as “Open” to transfer. Selected schools, programs and grades may be at capacity for the upcoming 2018-2019 school year and not available as a choice for out-of-resident students.  A list of available schools, grades, and programs or other information pertaining to the open enrollment policy may be obtained after November 30, 2017 from the Student Services office at the above address or by calling (801)578-8206 or (801)578-8475.

A $5.00 processing fee will be charged at the time of application and may be waived for qualified applicants.

Farewell, Ms. Matthews!

Farewell, Ms. Matthews!The faculty, students and staff, thank you, Ms. Matthews, for your caring and compassion, your professionalism, wisdom, and thoughtfulness through the many years.  You taught students wonderful literature, exemplary writing skills and made them think about being their best selves through your curriculum, support, and by personal example.  The learning and love of reading you created will carry on in the lives of your students.  Perchance, on wintry nights, when “the moon is a ghostly galleon, tossed upon cloudy seas,” the hallway near room 2044 will echo with students’ voices “…and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” We wish you the best in your well-deserved retirement, Ms. Matthews! To quote from the poem, which you stood and recited to your many students over the years, we are all so lucky to have grown “stronger and better because we merely touched shoulders with you.”
