SCHOOL UNIFORM REMINDER – Parents, we have noticed students pushing the boundaries of the school uniform policy in areas such as collared shirts, ripped pants, headbands, and, although red is a school color, it is not school appropriate for tights, leggings, or pants. If a student wears a uniform compliant hoodie, a collared uniform shirt must be worn underneath. While jeans are allowed on Fridays, with a spirit or uniform shirt, jeans may not have holes/rips in them, even if skin is not showing through. Ripped jeans may not be worn on Dollar Dress Days.

Students who are not in appropriate school uniform clothing/footwear/head wear will be asked to call home for new clothing starting next week. Please review the school uniform policy on the website here:


TICKETS ON SALE NOW! $25 per ticket gets you a lovely dinner and entrance to the greatest fundraising event ever! Buy tickets or donate here:

POET has chosen to make this event our largest fundraiser so our students don’t have to sell cookie dough, pizza, Wasatch Cards, or various other items door-to-door. This year we are raising money to purchase a security camera system for our buildings.
