GALLERY: Inappropriate Teacher-Student Facebook Messages

Cimaron Neugebauer
Apr 14 2014 - 8:43pm

Out of hundreds of messages, the Standard-Examiner selected 20 messages that show a 27-year-old teacher's string of behavior over months of inappropriate Facebook messaging to a then 13-year-old student. In the messages she discusses Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) issues of other students including grades, divorce/custody issues along with personnel, faculty, and student privacy issues with a teen student. The Ogden Highland Junior High School teacher resigned April 2. Some redactions have been made for privacy of other teachers and the principal, all of whom had disparaging remarks made about them. Since the teacher has not been publicly charged with anything, her Facebook profile picture has also been blurred. Private Facebook Messenger messages from the teen's account were provided to the Standard-Examiner by the parent.

Snowbasin held their first annual pond skim on Sunday, April 12, 2014 to celebrate the approaching end of the season, now planned for April 20, 2014. A large depression was created near the bottom of City Hill, lined with a tarp, filled with cold water with a few chunks of ice and a couple of duck decoys also thrown in to add ambiance. Approximately 100 skiers and snowboarders participated along with a snow biker, a kayaker and a ski patrol toboggan with most making it safely across the icy waters. Those that did not make it treated the spectators to splash-filled crashes and which made for a chilling scene.

Powder Mountain Resort held their first annual pond skim on April 11, 2014 to celebrate the end of the 2013-14 winter season. A large depression was created near the Timberline lodge, lined with a tarp, and filled with two-three feet of water-- very cold water with chunks of snow floating in it. Almost 80 skiers and snowboarders, some in costume, attempted to ride across the length of the pond without taking a plunge. Surprisingly to some, most made it safely across, but those that didn't treated the spectators to water spraying crashes.
