Action Items

Help us plan Burger Meets! Burger Meets are in-person activities with other LAU students. We plan to organize several throughout Utah, as conditions allow. This survey will help us decide where to host them and find parents we can work with to plan them.

Be prepared for graduation: If your student is planning to graduate this year, we want to make sure they are fully prepared. Please follow this link to familiarize yourself with the Williamsburg Learning graduation policy.


Exploring the LAU website: Check out our new Student Life page on the website under the Current Families tab. You can use this page to learn more about the activities and services we have available for students.

Williamsburg Learning swag will be on sale from September 5-7. Everything is up to 35% off; that makes classic tees only $13! Check out our school swag store if your student wants to show off their school pride.

Time is running out for Adobe Creative Cloud! Currently, all Utah students have access to the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite. We just received notification that this offer will expire in January 2021. If your student is currently enjoying Adobe, please understand that the free subscription will expire at the end of January 2021. Click here if your student is interested in accessing the Adobe suite for free until the end of January.
