Pre-registration at Elk Ridge Middle School for next year will begin February 1st and continue until February 14. After that date, you may continue to complete pre-registration, however your priority for scheduling may be lowered. Pre-registration will all be done online this year using a form that will be placed on this page. If there are families in your neighborhood who currently attend charter or private schools but plan to attend Elk Ridge next year, please share this information with them.
Making Class Requests for the 2021-22 School Year
Visit this page on or after February 1st, 2021. The site will cover how to complete pre-registration, rules, policies, expectations and videos about some of the courses. A list of courses offered and their descriptions can be found here.
Your student must use their Jordan District ID (lunch number) and Jordan District email address (ending in @my.jordandistrict.org) to pre-register. If they do not know their ID and email address, please contact us at the school 801-412-2800. If they are new to the district, a parent/guardian must bring documentation to the school to enroll the student and will receive an ID and email at that time.
Math and Language Arts courses both offer an Honors option. In the past we have had an application, but this year we will allow students and parents to choose to be placed in an Honors class without an application if they choose. Please be aware that Honors classes require a higher level of work and excellent classroom behavior and citizenship. If you have a question about what would be appropriate for your student, your student’s 6th grade teacher may advise on which class your student is best prepared for.
The district is once again allowing exceptional students to take a placement test to see if enrolling in Math 8 Honors would be appropriate. This is usually only about 5-10% of the students, but this test will be made available to sixth graders who would like to try this option. For information regarding testing, you may contact Amy Kinder (801-567-8469) or Melissa Garber (801-567-8170) at the district offices.
Required Immunizations (7th Grade)
All incoming 7th graders will need to have had a Tdap booster, a second dose of Varicella (chickenpox) vaccine, and 1 dose of Meningococcal vaccine. Documentation of the three above mentioned immunizations for your student should be turned in to the Counseling Center before August. If your student has had the above mentioned immunizations, you may mail a copy to us or bring a copy to the main office at Elk Ridge. Alternatively, you can send a copy to our registrar.
Please do not delay in having these immunizations administered as it is a State of Utah requirement, Section 53A-11-303, and is necessary for students to be able to attend school. If you are claiming an exemption for vaccines that are required for school entry, contact the registrar for instructions.
