Jordan High students will be home in the days leading up to the holidays — but that doesn’t mean they won’t be engaged in learning.
Starting Monday, Dec. 14, all Beetdiggers will turn to online learning for the last week of school before Winter Recess. The decision to move to virtual classes for a short period of time was made Friday, Dec, 11 after Canyons District’s Administration met with Salt Lake County Health Department officials to discuss the number of confirmed cases among the Jordan High school community in the past 14 days.
Also taken into consideration was the increased positivity rate in the Sandy neighborhoods near the school.
Jordan High teachers will provide instruction in the virtual format until Thursday, Dec. 17.
Friday, Dec. 18 is scheduled as a day of planning and preparation for teachers and independent learning for students.
In-person instruction at Jordan High will resume on Monday, Jan. 4.
Following guidance from the Salt Lake County Health Department, when students return after Winter Recess, the number of COVID-19 cases associated with Jordan will reset to zero on Canyons District’s COVID-19 data dashboard.
