Communication is critical for a successful year at Lone Peak Elementary. Here are some ways to keep up-to-date on what is going on here at school.
Cell Phones/Smart Watches
Student cell phones and smart watches should be turned OFF or in school mode during school hours. Students should notify the teacher when they are sick or if they need to contact their parents for exceptional circumstances. Parents should communicate with the school rather than text or call their students during school hours. During school hours, we are responsible for all students’ safety. We need to be kept informed and follow policies to keep students safe.
During back-to-school online registration, you verify that student directory contact information for your student may be shared. Please select no to opt out. Make sure your contact information is updated in Skyward and that you have at least two local emergency contacts. Please call the office to change your address.
Delivering Items and Messages
Classroom instruction time is protected and interruptions cause disruptions to learning. If you need to get items to your student, you can drop them off at the office and we will deliver them to classrooms.
If you need to get a message to your student, you can call the office and we will take down the message. All messages are called into classrooms 10 minutes before school ends so that students do not forget.
Office Telephone Use
Office telephone use will be permitted for students who need to contact a parent due to exceptional circumstances with a note from the teacher or for illness when the teacher marks to call home. Phones should not be used to make transportation changes or playdates. Student directories will be available for purchase shortly after school starts for this purpose.
Parent Square is a district-wide app that allows all schools to utilize the same platform for communication with parents. You will be given instructions to sign up during back-to-school online registration. You can also download the app directly from the Google or Apple stores. Make sure to register using the email address in Skyward. If you choose to allow texts, this will ensure quick communication between yourself and the people within the school.
Some classes send home a planner/folder with important dates and documents that might include: homework, classroom newsletter, notices of school-related meetings, field trip permission slips, and information about school holidays or events. Make sure to check your student’s backpack daily.
If you have an urgent issue that needs to be addressed immediately, please call the front office for assistance. You may reach Ms. Stacy by phone or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, if you would like to meet with Ms. Stacy, please call or email to schedule an appointment time. Please address any concerns with the classroom teacher prior to reaching out to the principal.
Once a month, you will receive an email from Ms. Stacy. It will inform you of the great things happening at Lone Peak Elementary, as well as important updates of activities and events.
The Lone Peak website is an excellent source for everything you need to know about our school. Visit the website regularly to get up-to-date information about Lone Peak. It is highly recommended that parents/guardians bookmark the website and check it weekly. Check it out at lonepeak.canyonsdistrict.org.

Lone Peak faculty check their emails daily. While it is not always possible to respond immediately to emails, teachers do their best to respond within 24-48 hours. Teachers are unable to accept phone calls during instructional time, but will check messages at the end of the day. Teacher email addresses can be found on the Lone Peak website under Faculty.
The faculty at Lone Peak is always open to input and encourages you to schedule an appointment with the teacher whenever you have ideas or concerns. Although teachers are not available to have conversations during school hours, they are eager to address parent/guardian concerns and questions before they become problems. At all times, parents need to enter through the office, complete the electronic check-in, and visibly wear the volunteer or visitor sticker.
Each teacher will send a weekly or bi-weekly notice to parents/guardians via email, blog, website or paper. This communication will inform you of academic objectives, special activities, and other important classroom news.
If parents need to make any transportation changes, they need to call the office at least 20 minutes before school is out. Make sure you have a clear communication plan with your students about any transportation changes and pick-up/drop-off locations.
