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.

While many traditional celebrations that take place this time of year might look drastically different this season, the Canyons Education Foundation is planning an event that ticks all of the boxes: It’s fun, it’s for a good cause, and the entire community can participate.

The Canyons Education Foundation’s inaugural Virtual Fun Run kicks off Nov. 22-28, and provides an opportunity for participants to complete a 5K that is safe and will benefit members of the community through a fundraiser for Internet connectivity and computing devices for students in need. 

“We know there are individuals who would love to help out within the District, so this is a way for employees and our own student families to be able to help other student families,” said Denise Haycock, Development Officer for the Canyons Education Foundation.
