School Board

Saint John the Baptist Elementary shares a School Board with Saint John the Baptist Middel School. The Board is a non-grievance consultative board made up of the administration, education experts and dedicated parents who advise the administration in the areas of policy and long-range planning. The Board meets monthly during the school year, as indicated below, to discuss goals, plans and activities of the schools and advise where appropriate. All meetings are open to visitors. There may be a Closed Forum at the end of meetings, in which visitors will be asked to leave. Visitors are invited to sit along the perimeter of the room, reserving the chairs around the table for Board members. Visitors are welcome to observe School Board meetings, but may not comment on, ask questions, etc. regarding agenda items. In addition, visitors will not receive copies of handouts, materials that are distributed. If you would like to introduce an agenda item, please contact the Board President, Devin Novara at  by 8:00am one week before the monthly meeting. The President will meet with the Executive Committee to decide if and when the item belongs on the Board's agenda, or will suggest an alternate body to address it. The President will have discretion whether or not to place the item on the agenda and to allot a specific amount of time to the item.  If you would like to serve on a Board committee, please email the Board President, Devin Novara at

Medical Services & Forms

From the Nurse's desk: Any student who needs medication at anytime during the school day needs to follow this protocol: All medical forms are available on the website under Parent or Student. Select the Medical Form(s) that fit your student’s needs. These forms for medications are to be filled out each year and returned to the school nurse by the parent. Medications are to be brought in their original labeled container with prescription instructions. No loose medication is allowed. It is the responsibility of the parent to provide the first dose of a new medication at home. No medication is to be carried on a student unless it is an Asthma inhaler or Epi-pen for severe allergies. That arrangement is only allowed if a Utah State medical form for self-carry is provided from your physician and given to the nurse. All medical considerations such as Asthma, Diabetes, and Severe Allergies require a Student Care Plan for health and safety needs. Please contact the nurse if your child has medical needs. We look forward to working with you.

Thank you,

Biometric Positive Identification System:

The cafeteria uses a biometric positive ID system. The system uses a finger touch pad to positively identify a student. During the scan, a template image is created that forms intersection points; once the images and intersection points are verified, the individual record is converted to a set of numbers that are used as the student’s ID. The system only remembers and processes numbers for each student. The positive ID system does not store a fingerprint; the system creates a numeric template image where there is no possibility of reverse identification or forensic application in the form of a fingerprint.

For questions regarding the lunch program, please contact Jackie Pappas, Director of Food Services at 801-984-7628 and/or .
