CSD Streamlines Notification Process for Students After Possible COVID-19 Exposure

Canyons District has streamlined the family-notification process when it has been determined through the contact-tracing process that a student may have been exposed at school by student or employee who has tested positive for COVID-19. 

To ensure that families receive the notification, parents of children who will need to quarantine will receive an automated phone call and an email. Parents also will receive a text message if they have signed up for that service in Skyward. The process was put into place in recent weeks and has proven effective in immediately notifying parents of this important information.  

The official information will come from the Canyons school nurses, who are at the forefront of the District’s COVID-19 response. Canyons District nurses work hand-in-hand with the Salt Lake County Health Department and other health authorities to confirm test results, conduct contact tracing, answer questions of parents, students and employees, and help track the District’s overall COVID-19 cases.

Jordan High, Indian Hills Middle Pivot to Online Learning Until After Thanksgiving Recess

As a result of an increase in COVID-19 cases associated with the two schools, Jordan High and Indian Hills Middle schools will immediately transition to online learning until after the Thanksgiving Recess.

Parents of students at Jordan High and Indian Hills Middle were notified on Tuesday about the decision via robocall, email and text.

Beetdigger and Warrior students who are registered for on-campus classes will not attend school on Wednesday. Nov. 11. That day will be used by faculty and staff to prepare to teach virtual classes for the next two weeks. Online instruction for all Jordan High and Indian Hills Middle students will begin Thursday, Nov. 12. More information about online learning expectations via Canvas will be forthcoming from the school and individual teachers.

It’s hoped that in-person instruction at both Jordan High and Indian Hills Middle can resume on Nov. 30.  In the meantime, the buildings will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized. 

The decisions about the temporary schedules at the two schools follow guidelines established by the Canyons Board of Education for when a school reaches a certain threshold of positive cases within a two-week period.
