Welcome Back Broncos!
Bastian Elementary is located in the rapidly growing city of Herriman, UT with the beautiful Oquirrh Mountains in the background. We believe in making a difference every day by teaching students academic content and social/emotional skills that will develop self confidence, worth and a love of learning to foster independence.

You will find a calendar, the lunch menu and a lot of other information!
The temperatures are remaining cold! Make sure your children are properly prepared to be outside when temperatures are 21 or higher. If you do not have a heavy coat, mittens or hat please notify the office.
Please be sure to check your child’s lunch account balance and keep it in the positive. We will be serving alternate lunches to all children who have negative balances of $40 or more, beginning January 6th. An alternate lunch consists of a sandwich, fruit/veggie and milk. Students will be charged $.40 for reduced price accounts and $.75 for full price accounts. The procedure we follow to help students through this process is: The student will be called down to the office to see if they have a lunch from home or if money has been deposited, if student does not have a home lunch or money in their account they will go to the cafeteria where they will pick up their alternate lunch that has been packed that morning. The student will then take their sack lunch to their classroom. They will bring it back to lunch during their assigned lunch period like all the children who bring lunches from home. Remember, the are Free/Reduced Price Lunch Applications available in the breezeway or online and can be completed at any point as circumstances change. The application does have to be completed at the start of every year. If you have questions about this process please call Amanda Edwards, Principal, or Franco Preston, Assistant Principal. We would be happy to discuss the process with you. We want to help in any way we can. Thank you.
We would also ask your help in getting students to school on time. We have had between 50-70 kids (out of our 950), coming in after 9:05am each morning. This cuts down on their opportunity to learn and interrupts the day. It also slows down the ability of the office to record any call ins regarding sick or absent students. Please be patient as the auto-calls go out at 9:30am. When we have 50 students tardy, we are still getting them checked in and most likely won’t have time to get them entered in the computer, yet alone check phone or email messages to enter students who are absent. If you get a phone call and believe your child has checked in, please call and check with us. We would rather know as soon as you know! We want all of our students safe and at school during school hours.
Thank you for all you do to help your children! Please don’t hesitate to email or call if you have any questions.
Sincerely, Amanda Edwards, Principal
