 a message from the Jordan School District:

As we prepare for the return of students, teachers and staff, Jordan School District has received and reviewed guidelines from state and county health departments regarding COVID-19 protocols for schools. 

Below is a summary of protocols we plan to follow. We hope this will help parents make decisions and plans that are best for their individual families.

  • Face Masks – Face masks are not required in Jordan School District schools or offices. Individual choices regarding masks should be respected. State and County Health Department recommendations regarding masks can be found at the following link:

coronavirus.utah.gov/education/

We encourage families to study the recommendations and choose what they believe is best.

  • COVID-19 Vaccination – Students and employees in Jordan School District are not required to be vaccinated. Individual choices regarding vaccinations should be respected. State and County Health Department recommendations regarding vaccinations can be found at the following link:

coronavirus.utah.gov/education/

We encourage families to study the recommendations and choose what they believe is best.

  • Isolation – Students and employees who test positive for COVID-19 will be required to isolate as directed by the County Health Department. Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 will not be permitted at school or any school activities during their isolation period.
  • Quarantine – Quarantine decisions for students and employees who may have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 will be made with the county health department. More information will be forthcoming.
  • COVID-19 Testing – There are no “test-to-play” protocols in place for extracurricular activities. According to state law, “test-to-stay” will be implemented if a school reaches the established positive COVID-19 thresholds. More information will be forthcoming.
  • COVID-19 Data Dashboard – The COVID-19 Data Dashboard will be updated daily with case counts in our schools and buildings.
  • Feel Sick? Stay Home – Students and staff who have COVID-19 symptoms should stay home. Having symptomatic individuals stay home will significantly reduce our need for student quarantines.
  • Sanitation and Hygiene – Custodial staff in schools and buildings will continue to follow best practices for cleaning and sanitization to help minimize the spread of COVID-19.
  • Virtual Schools Available – Virtual, online learning is available for all K-12 students in Jordan School District. Students can register at one of the following schools.
  • Rocky Peak Virtual Elementary School rockypeak.jordandistrict.org/registration/
  • Kelsey Peak Virtual Middle School kelseypeak.jordandistrict.org/registration/
  • Kings Peak High School.      kingspeak.jordandistrict.org/registration/
  • Free Breakfast and Lunch – Free breakfast and lunch will be served for all students 18-years-old and younger at all schools through a USDA free meal waiver. There will be a charge for a la carte items in secondary schools.

We will keep you updated as plans, protocols, and recommendations evolve.

Thank you for your support as we begin the 2021-22 school year.


Flexible Fridays: 

Students attend by invitation only. Work will be sent home for all others.
