New Webpage Coming

Salt Lake City Schools will all be rolling out new webpages this year. Beacon Heights is in the first round (guinea pig) and as a result, one fine day in the next few weeks, the website will be totally different. Initially it will be far more sparse than the old one but will gradually evolve.Because the new version is being worked on now, this page will only have the the most necessary new posts. Your patience in this task is appreciated.
