School Restart 2020-2021

Dear Families,

Here is how we will conduct school this fall:

  • The first day of school for students is Tuesday, September 8 (the day after Labor Day). The original first day of school was scheduled for Tuesday, August 25. 
    • Teachers will begin the year on their regular contract schedule and will use the first two weeks of the original school year to connect with students and families and to prepare for the coming year.
  • We will begin the school year via online learning through the end of the first quarter (end of October), with a few exceptions:
    • With the changes that Utah Governor Gary Herbert made last week for school districts remaining in the Orange phase of Utah’s COVID-19 recovery plan, our school district would have the opportunity to provide some in-person instruction for many of our most vulnerable students, including our English Language Learners and our Special Education students. (In fact, we have been holding in-person instruction for many of our Special Education students over the summer. Students have been able to come and meet with their teacher in small groups of three to five students to make sure they are ready for the coming school year.)
    • We will continue to provide in-person, small group instruction to those who are most vulnerable.
