A MESSAGE TO OUR STUDENTS
School Closure Updates
Jordan School District schools are dismissed and no students will physically attend for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year.
April 14, 2020 - "Gov. Gary R. Herbert and Utah State Superintendent of Public Instruction Sydnee Dickson announced Tuesday that Utah’s K-12 public schools will remain dismissed through the end of the school year due to the Coronavirus outbreak."
Dear Parents, May 11, 2020
I hope this letter finds you and your family well. While it seems as if the world as we know it is changing daily, many things remain the same, such as the fact that we all are still working daily for your children. We miss them and think of them every day and look forward to the time we can all be back at school together!
I want to touch base with you and give you some important updates for the end of the school year. The State Board has indicated that, “educational services must continue to be provided through the end of the school year”, and Jordan School District supports this directive. Although no ‘new’ assignments will be given after May 22, assignments may be due past this date, and any work not yet completed during the at-home learning time may still be completed. There will also be many other educational activities provided that reflect the types of activities that typically happen at the end of the school year.
During this time teachers will stay in close contact with you regarding your child’s academic needs. They will provide content review activities, games, and fun learning videos; assess your child’s knowledge of core standards; hold individual student conferences; and plan virtual group activities to celebrate student’s achievements and the end of the school year. We want students to stay connected with learning and stay connected with their teacher and classmates through the end of the school year.
Snow day content is still scheduled to be available starting June 8. This online content will be a review of this year and a bridge to next year. This content will not impact student grades and will be sent directly to all families.
Sometime prior to the week of June 1 the office staff will contact you to schedule a time to return school issued Chromebooks and other items that may belong to the school. At this same scheduled time, you will also be given your child’s personal items that were left at school. Until then, please continue to call and make an appointment if it is necessary to come to the school.
Thank you for all you have done and continue to do to support your child’s learning during this challenging time. We’ve all learned some new things and have found some surprising rewards also. How wonderful for our students to see their parents being lifelong learners and stretching in new directions right along with them! Thank you so much for your support.
Patty Bowen, Principal

Please support your child in completing these important learning activities. Teachers will grade assignments, give feedback, be available for questions, and will follow up with students for online assignments. They will be in contact with students and parents electronically. Please feel free to reach out to them during school hours with any questions or concerns. Please check your email address that is listed in Skyward, and make any needed corrections.

AS A REMINDER:
Please keep your children home if they are running a fever, and remember to call the main office and let us know that your child is home sick. If you choose to check out your child before school ends, please do so through the main office, not with the classroom teacher. Also, to help things run smoothly, please make arrangements before school, regarding checkouts.
Whenever you come to school, please go to the office and sign in before going to your child’s classroom. This is a necessary procedure that helps ensure our students’ safety. If you have questions regarding snow day closures and other weather-related concerns, please check information between 6-8 a.m. on KSL – 1160 AM or 102.7 FM. You may also check TV stations KUTV – Channel 2, KTVX – Channel 4, KSL – Channel 5, or Fox News – Channel 13 for messages.
