Children spend a significant part of their day at school. Because of this, the faucets that provide water used for consumption, including drinking fountains, and sinks used for cooking breakfast and lunch have been tested for lead in all the schools within Tooele County School District.
Last week, the test results came back with a clean bill of health. All the schools have safe drinking water according to the guidelines established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The school district received a tip that students are playing the “choking game." We are very concerned about this activity and ask that parents talk with their children about the hazards of participating in this type of "game." We want to keep all our students safe from harm and this game poses a risk to their well being. If you would like more information, please contact the district office Safe Schools department or your school’s administration.

This one-hour movie chronicles the promising beginnings of a national movement to prevent childhood trauma, treat toxic stress, and greatly improve the health of future generations. Following the movie, there will be a discussion of the work being done in our schools and community to build resilience and counteract the impact of stress.

The Tooele County Board of Education is proposing to increase the voted local levy an additional .001 per dollar of the taxable value of the taxable property within the District. In 1998, the public voted in favor of allowing the District to levy a voted local levy of .0006 where it has remained since. If the proposed increase of .001 passes by the majority of voters this November it would allow the District to levy up to .0016 in the voted local levy.
