The following is the message from the Nebo District Office regarding the incident at SFHS on the morning of 3/29/23:
All students and faculty at Spanish Fork High are safe. This was a false report of an active shooter at Spanish Fork High. Police responded quickly and lock down protocol was immediately put into place. Police swept the building and have deemed it safe. As a result some schools were either on lockdown or lockout for a short period of time. We appreciate the quick reaction of our local law enforcement and administration.

Today's date is 3/14 . . . Happy Pi(e) Day! For true die hard Pi Day fans, be sure to do something pie-related or circle-y at exactly 1:59, thus creating the first 6 digits of pi: 3.14159.
Fun fact, 3/14 is also Albert Einstein's birthday.
Extra fun fact, the world record for reciting, from memory and in order, the digits of pi is held by Rajveer Meena who recited over 70,000 digits, blindfolded, from memory. It took 10 hours.
