Dear Parents,

 

We are looking forward to having you join us for our upcoming Parent Days, August 16th-19th with on campus programming and pass time. As well as, August 19th and 20th for off campus pass time if student is eligible and if your travel plans allow. Please look for your specific house schedules on the parent portal under “House Parent Days Schedules” in the coming weeks.

 

Onsite visiting areas - We will have designated onsite visiting areas on campus for you and your student to spend time together. There are slots each evening and throughout the weekend for onsite visiting for families of students on Orientation to Level 1. You will have an opportunity to visit your student’s home and tour during your visit. To limit the numbers of families on campus at the same time, we ask that unless you are participating in scheduled events on campus, that you are not on campus. Thursday and Friday, students will still be in school between activities.

 

Off Campus pass time - We are encouraging our students to invest in the program and level system to earn pass time off campus. There are time slots for off campus pass time for students on Level 3 and up throughout the evenings and weekend.  Level 2 students will have limited time off campus each day and though out the weekend.   Please help encourage your student to invest in the program and work towards Level 2 and Level 3. Off campus pass time will be offered on Sunday the 14th if your student is eligible and if your travel plans allow.

 

During Parent Days, you will participate in two family sessions, a Parent Seminar, a recreational activity, rotations with Academics and your student’s Psychiatrist, and a Parent Support Group. You will receive an email with the scheduled sessions in the upcoming weeks. We would like to request that you participate in all scheduled events whenever possible, as this is an integral part of the experience for your child.

 

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you soon and hope you will enjoy your time with us.

Sincerely,

Mindy Exon

Program Director

Dear Parents,

We recognize being away from your student is hard. As the holidays approach, be mindful when sending packages and when shopping for your student during pass-times that storage space is very limited.

When sending candy or snacks, your student has a gallon-size zip-lock bag that ALL candy and snacks will need to fit in. Do not send drinks (canned or bottled) or drink mixes/packets, cereal boxes, mac and cheese, ramen, meal items, items with caffeine, protein bars, sunflower seeds, meal supplements, gum, and any perishable items. All unapproved items will be immediately discarded (eligible items will be donated to the local food bank). When items do not fit in to a gallon zip-lock bag, your student will choose which items they would like, and the excess will be immediately discarded or donated.

For non-food items, such as books or clothing, please refer to the handbook for the allowed amounts of each item. Excess items will be sent home at cost to you.

 

Some suggested gift items are:

Books

Journals (no spiral binding or elastic components)

Needed clothing items

Small bags of sweets/snacks

Deck of cards

Fidget toys

Stress balls (foam only; no liquid or gel centers)

Coloring/Puzzle/Activity books

Art pencils/markers – nonalcoholic markers

 

If using a third party to send packages (such as Amazon) please identify who the package is from (usually by selecting the gift option). To ensure our students’ safety, only packages sent by individuals on the approved contact lists will be distributed. Any packages from unapproved contacts will be returned to sender and those from unknown contacts will be discarded or sent to the parent/guardian at cost to the parent/guardian. Please identify if the package is a holiday gift so we can set it aside until then.

Please also note that we don't receive mail deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays, or Holidays. We are registered with the US Postal Service, Fedex, and UPS as only able to receive mail and packages Monday-Friday 8:00am-5:00pm. Please DO NOT PAY EXTRA for weekend or holiday delivery because your package will not be delivered until the following Monday. If you would like to ensure your package arrives before the holiday, please plan ahead and make sure your package is scheduled to be delivered on Friday before 5:00pm. Be aware that if you use a private delivery service (like some Amazon deliveries), and they leave a package on Saturday, Sunday or a Holiday, your package may not reach its recipient, as there is no secure location for the package to be stored.

Lastly, please send all mail – letters and packages – for your student to our street address – 12595 South Minuteman Drive, Draper, UT 84020. Do NOT send to the PO Box.

If you have any questions, please consult the handbook or reach out to your child’s therapist. Thank you for your continued support.

 

Thanks,

Mindy Exon

Program Director
