Snow has returned to the Utah Valley! Please plan for some extra travel time to and from school as you transport students and navigate slick snow-covered or icy roads. Make sure your students have the appropriate winter clothing on these cold snowy school days.
My family and I have been attending church on Sundays for three-hours since 1980. Small sample size, but the Perdue family are big supporters of the new two-hour meeting schedule. Yesterday, we had a gift of an extra hour to shovel snow! Who knows what family enriching activities future Sundays will offer?
