Important update regarding Coronavirus response

The Board of Education of the Davis School District will move ahead with its earlier decision to have elementary school students return to school for four days of in-person, face-to-face instruction.

That four-day Monday through Thursday schedule will begin Monday, Sept. 28, for elementary school students.

Junior high and high school students will remain on a hybrid schedule — in which students receive two days of face-to-face in-person instruction and three days of remote learning — until the beginning of the second term on Nov. 2.

Fridays will be limited remote-learning days and teacher preparation days for all students.

The school board will also continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and may make further adjustments in the future.

The board previously decided on Sept. 15 to return all students to a schedule of four days of in-person instruction and one day of remote learning. After the number of COVID-19 cases rose in secondary schools and after receiving feedback from students, parents and teachers, the board decided to keep secondary students on the hybrid schedule through the end of the first term.

Board of Education Vice President Liz Mumford said, “We recognize the ongoing challenges for students, families and educators. The board is committed to continuously reviewing new data and mitigating safety risks as students come back to school.

“We all have a shared responsibility as a community to getting to Nov. 2 and having our cases low enough to get our students back in school," she said. "We share a commitment with our community to make choices that will get us to full opening. We are all in this together.”

As we follow the health department's guidance for low risk, we urge parents and students to continue to take precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19. We can help each other stay safe by practicing good hygiene, physical distancing, wearing maskslooking out for high-risk individuals, and staying home when sick. You can also keep informed about current conditions and do your part in sharing credible information. Doing these things will help us strengthen our community.

Davis School District is in regular contact with the Davis County Health Department and is continuously monitoring the situation. Up-to-date information can be found on the Utah Department of Health website .
