Principal's Message


Dear Escalante Elementary Families:

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter to welcome you back to Escalante Elementary for the 2019-2020 school year! 

At Escalante, we consider it a privilege to work with your children and look forward to fostering a challenging, nurturing, and fun learning environment. The staff at Escalante places great emphasis on collaborating with each other so that students are receiving the best instruction possible. We believe that all students have the ability to succeed both academically and personally, and we look forward to working with students to accomplish this goal.

Community involvement is a key component to the success of students at Escalante. Our staff welcomes parent volunteers, high school volunteers, and community volunteers as key contributors to support the learning of our students as well as the culture of the Salt Lake City School District. We welcome and encourage parent volunteers and hope that you will take advantage of the many opportunities available to you. These opportunities include attending PTA events, working in classrooms, chaperoning field trips, attending after-school events and many more. Please contact your child’s teacher or the office for ways to become involved in our school. 

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Escalante. As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors--teachers, students and parents--are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in, call, or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make Escalante Elementary the best! I look forward to continuing to foster relationships with your families, your children, and the community for years to come.


Haloti Liava’a, Principal
