Calendar outlines first four weeks of school
On Tuesday August 25th, students will start back to school with a hybrid alternating-day attendance model. Because of the Tuesday start, the schedule for the first week is altered so that all students see their teachers in person. Scheduling information specific to Davis Connect online students will be sent directly to enrolled students and their parents.
The district will update the calendar to reflect any changes and add additional weeks as needed.
District announces change to fall opening schedule
The Davis School District announced today that school will open with an alternative schedule for all students due to the prevalence of COVID-19 cases in our community.
The alternate-day, hybrid (in person/remote) learning model will be as follows:
- Students whose last name begins with A-K will attend school in-person on Mondays and Wednesdays with remote at-home learning on Tuesdays and Thursdays .
- Students whose last name begins with L-Z will attend school in-person on Tuesdays and Thursdays with remote at-home learning on Mondays and Wednesdays.
- Fridays will be at-home remote learning days for all students with teachers working from the school site to provide remote instruction.
- In junior highs and high schools on a block (A/B Day) schedule, A-day classes will be repeated on Monday and Tuesday for the two groups of students. B-day classes will be repeated on Wednesday and Thursday for the two groups of students on subsequent days. Fridays will be combined A/B days.
- If students in the same household have different last names, a group assignment will be applied to all students based on last name of the oldest student in the household.
In a related note, the school district will continue to share information with you as it comes available and utilize the COVID-19 webpage as a way to provide additional resources.

Safely reconnecting students with teachers
By Craig Carter, Business Administrator
As we turn to August, we say good-bye to the hot summer months and hello to a new year, new beginning and a new adventure. And this year will be an adventure.
The 2019-20 school year ended with an unexpected twist in the middle of March, with classes finishing online. Seniors experienced virtual graduations, which were truly amazing. Everyone ended the month of May with the hope that 2020 would start with a very normal school year.
To EVERYONE’s disappointment, 2020 will start in a very creative way — a hybrid system with students in school two days and remote two days. Fridays will a flexible day for collaborative group and/or individual work with teachers.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character — that is the goal of true education.Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
