  • How do I register my student for the Bryant After School Program?

    Afterschool runs from August 29 - May 25. There is no afterschool provided during holidays and on non-school days.

    Monday – Thursday  3:20 PM – 5:45 PM, Friday 1:30 PM -4:30 PM

    You can find an application on our website: bryant.slcschools.org or in the front office. Please turn in the After School Form and CASH payment to the Afterschool Coordinator between 1:30 pm- 5:00 pm.

  • How do I check out my student?

    Please go to the Counseling Department to check out your student.  Allow ten minutes for the checkout process.

    Students are not excused from school or may not leave campus unless their reason for leaving is verified by office staff in person by the parent/guardian or person listed as the student’s emergency contact(s).  Parents/guardians will need to sign students out in the checkout log.  Your student will not be released to ANY person NOT listed and ANY person picking up the student will need to present a photo ID (i.e. driver’s license)

    Unless there is an urgent reason, parents/guardians are encouraged to make appointments for medical or dental work, music or dance lessons, and/or family vacations at hours which do not conflict with normal school time.

  • What is the SCC?

    Every Utah public school has a School Community Council (SCC) that consists of the principal, school employees, and parents. The council is responsible for reviewing and proposing ideas for plans each year, including the School Improvement and LAND Trust Plans. School budgets, staffing, safety, and discipline school programs, calendars, and schedules are all discussed in SCC Meetings. Parents can also raise issues of concern to the council.

    This year SCC meetings will be held from 7:00 AM – 8:00 AM on:

    October 23, November 18, January 22, February 19, March 18, April 15, May 20

  • How can I get involved in the PTSA?

    3. PTSA meetings are held early in the morning for parents who have a lot of afterschool activities going on.  Remember we only meet once a month! If you need to bring children with you, it’s okay!

  • How do I check my student's Powerschool account?

    The Powerschool Parent Portal is a powerful online tool to obtain information about your student’s academic progress. You will be able to review your student’s schedule, grades, and attendance from any computer that has internet accessibility.  The second week of school we provide you with the link to a username and password. Please remember that these should be kept confidential for the protection of your student’s personal information. If for some reason you are having problems, contact the front office and we will be happy to assist you.

    Parents: If you are new to parent portal you must create an account to access student information. If you have previously created an account, you do not need to create another account, just use your same username and password.

    If you do not receive a letter please call and verify your address with the front office at 801-578-8118.  We will be able to email or mail you a new letter.
