Our faculty and staff will continue to work diligently to create the best possible environment to meet our student’s needs.

Online registration will be available beginning on Monday, July 27, 2020. The online registration will look a bit different from previous years. Your options are as follows:

SLCSD Returning Students: Every Student Attending grades 9th through 12th must complete the registration process.

Students with a student ID# and a Registration pin: Parents should receive this information via email or in a physical letter starting 7/22/20. If you are a current SLCSD student that is scheduled to attend East for this school year and do not receive this information by the first of August you can call the Student Services department at East High School 801-583-1661 ext 2337 or 2309 after August 5, 2020 for assistance.

This option is for any student who has moved into East’s boundaries and did not attend a SLCSD school last year (please remember if you are a student coming in from one of the SLCSD middle schools you are considered a returning student and can use your student number and pin to register).

Please click the Registration Link, then register as a new student. The system will direct you in completing the process. You will be asked to upload documents to streamline the registration process. We need copies of the student’s Birth Certificate, Immunization Records and 2 proof of addresses to verify you live in East’s boundaries.

If you are not able to upload these documents on the system please call the Student Services department after August 5, 2020 and we can schedule an appointment to complete registration.

PSAT/NMSQT and Utah Scholars

 September 2019

The PSAT/NMSQT will be administered October 30, 2019 for registered students. Students taking the test should meet promptly at 7:45am on the day of the test in the Ballroom (C402) with two No.2 pencils, a school or government-issued ID, an approved calculator, and plan on being there until about 11:45am. PSAT Student Guides should be picked up at the counseling center as soon as possible.

Utah Scholars was created to help students in high school take the right classes to get to college, keep their grades up, and help students be more prepared to qualify for scholarships. To receive the StepUp Utah Scholars recognition certificates and medallion you need to have a 3.0 cumulative GPA and complete 20 Next Steps from the grade-by-grade checklists before you graduate from high school. While you can complete these steps at any time, it's best to do several each year so you stay focused and on track. Don't forget to keep track of which Next Steps you complete!
