Open Enrollment for 2021-22 School Year


Early Open Enrollment Begins Dec. 1

Your best choice in education is the Salt Lake City School District. All of our schools are committed to the district’s vision of Excellence and Equity: every student, every classroom, every day. In keeping with this vision, our schools offer academically rigorous classes based on the Utah Core curriculum, hold high expectations for all students, respond to individual student needs, and provide a safe and healthy environment for student learning. 

Students interested in enrolling in a Salt Lake City School District school for the 2021-22 school year but who live outside the district or school boundaries may apply for an out-of-resident transfer during the Early Open Enrollment period, from December 1, 2020, until 4 p.m. on February 19, 2021.

Students who wish to attend a school outside their neighborhood boundaries and are currently enrolled in 6th grade must apply for transfer to the middle school of their choice and 8th grade students must make application for their high school of choice during the Open Enrollment window. 

Applications are available online and must be submitted on time. They will not be accepted after 4 p.m. on February 19, 2021.

Students may apply for enrollment in schools designated as “Open” to transfer. Selected schools and programs may be at capacity for the coming school year and not available as a choice for out-of-resident students. Additionally, some schools, including charter schools, may require a separate application or lottery process.

Meals for Students

What: Do you want to know what is being served today or next week? Breakfast and lunch menus are available on the Child Nutrition website.

Hillside Middle School (Northeast Parking Area – Located behind the school) 
1825 Nevada Street, Salt Lake City, Utah 84108  

Whittier Elementary (North Parking Area – Enter from Roberta Street) 
1600 South 300 East, Salt Lake City, Utah 

For full list  of locations:


Winter is coming, and with it come cold temperatures and inclement weather. Starting tomorrow, Thursday, October 22, our meals will be served a little differently, depending on the weather. On days with low temperatures or inclement weather, our meal pick-up may take place from inside the school to help protect our Child Nutrition employees and keep them healthy throughout the winter season.

When you arrive to pick up your student meals, look for a sign or directions leading you to the area of the school where meals will be available. Exact pickup locations will vary by school. At some locations, drive-thru pick-up may still be an option. The meals will typically be available at a door near the school cafeteria. Please avoid going to your school’s main entrance or to the front office.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we make this change. Our student meals will continue with our “Lunch Today, Breakfast Tomorrow” style, where students receive a sack lunch to be eaten that day and a sack breakfast, which can be refrigerated and eaten the next day. They will be available each weekday to children ages 0-18.
