Thanks to Jog-a-thon Volunteers!

The PTA would like to thank all the many parent volunteers that came out to support the jog-a-thon on Friday. It was so great to see moms and dad and siblings running along side their Foothills Students!

We'd also like to thank our Dare Officer and the Herriman High Mustang for coming to cheer us on.

Many thanks to Holly Jones, our Fundraiser chair, and her committee for organizing the event. And thanks to Mrs Yost and Mr. Hanson for their support of the PTA.

Updated 11:30pm

The PTA president got a call from Mrs. Yost. It still has not been decided if Foothills will be closed tomorrow due to the smoke in the air. Please check the 5:00 am news for any closure announcements.

If school is closed PTA will try to get the word out through the room parents.

The school district website will have closure information for all local schools, but as of right now is crashed due to high volume. www.jordandistrict.org

Will update this site as new information comes in.
