Jordan School District
School Dismissal Extended For Remainder of 2019-2020 School Year
Governor Gary Herbert announced today that the school dismissal for all Utah schools will be extended for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
This means Jordan School District schools will not be in session for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Student learning will continue at home for all students through the end of the school year.
We sincerely appreciate how hard students, parents, families, teachers, staff, and administrators have worked to provide a quality education through these difficult times. At the same time, we recognize that the most important thing for everyone to do right now is to focus on their personal health and well-being and the health and well-being of their loved ones. We hope these guidelines will help as you navigate the remainder of the school year.
A video message from the superintendent regarding school dismissal can be accessed from jordandistrict.org.

No new assignments will be given after May 22, 2020.
Grades and credit will still be issued, but with certain modifications in order to be sensitive to the difficulties students may encounter as a result of at-home learning.

- You will need an Original Birth Certificate. The school will make a copy for your student's educational record.
- Your Child's legal name (the name that appears on the Birth Certificate) will be used on all official school records.
