NOTICE OF SCHOOL DISMISSAL
Effective until March 27, 2020
Parents and guardians,
The Utah Department of Health, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the Governor’s Coronavirus Task Force and the Utah State Board of Education have been actively monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 and coordinating efforts involving preparedness and prevention with school leaders throughout the state.
This afternoon, the Utah State Board of Education and Utah Department of Health have directed all schools in the state to dismiss school from Monday, March 16th through Friday, March 27th. Prior to re-opening our school, we will work closely with these state agencies to re-evaluate the situation and determine the appropriate next steps.
During this dismissal period, students will remain at home, but the school facility will be kept open and staff will be allowed to continue to work. In addition, small groups of students may be invited to the school under limited circumstances to provide services or support that are needed. We will contact you on Monday, March 16th with additional information on the educational resources and support that will be provided to your student(s) during this dismissal.
As you are aware, the health and safety of our students and faculty is our top priority. We recognize the burden this will place on many of our families, but we encourage you to continue to follow the recommendations and protocols established by state and federal health agencies. Additional information on COVID-19 can be accessed at: https://coronavirus.utah.gov, https://schools.utah.gov/coronavirus, and https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/index.html.
We are grateful for the network of support that has been provided by our state and local leaders. In addition, we are so thankful for the dedication of our faculty, and the outpouring of support we have received from families. We will continue to provide you with updates as they become available.
