What you need to know about Coronavirus
The Utah Department of Health has indicated that symptoms of novel Coronavirus are similar to what someone may experience as the result of seasonal illnesses that routinely spread in the community around this time of year – namely a fever, cough, or shortness of breath. These symptoms on their own are not worrisome and should not cause alarm.
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 and the CDC website.

Working together during
'soft closure' of schools
By Logan Toone, Assistant Superintendent
In the past few days, the term “soft closure” has become a common utterance in our homes, schools, and communities.
Information from health and government officials is changing by the hour, and with the uncertainty that lies ahead, we will all need an extra measure of patience, flexibility and kindness. While adjustments to school and other community structures can be inconvenient (and even frustrating) at times, they are essential to protect the health and well-being of ourselves, our families, and every individual in our society.
The Davis School District is committed to taking steps which contribute to the health of our community, and our recent efforts in enacting a soft-closure reflect that priority.
As we strive to meet our obligations to community health, we also want to ensure that learning takes place. Our amazing educators have prepared to deliver remote learning opportunities during the current school closure.
We compliment them on their efforts. We request patience and understanding from the community as we strive to push meaningful remote learning experiences to our students. Additional information regarding remote learning in Davis School District is available here.
