Hello Bacchus Families,
We are ready to go for this school year! We know there are many new changes this year, but we are excited to have students back in school whether they are in-person or distance learners. Thank you for choosing Bacchus Elementary and trusting us with your child’s education.
DISTANCE LEARNERS: For distance learners, school will be distance learning for you Monday through Friday. Each teacher will run their distance learning programs a litter differently, just as they run differently during face-to-face instruction. Please reach out to your student’s teacher with any questions you may have.
FACE-TO-FACE LEARNING: For our face-to-face learners, school will be held Monday through Thursday, at the school. Friday will be distance learning for everyone, so face-to-face learners will be learning either online at home or doing packets depending on what the teacher has assigned. For Friday distance learning, please check with your student’s individual teacher about how they will run their hours for Friday learning.
This update is as of today, August 21st.
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL: Our first day of school is Monday, August 24th for our 1st through 6th grade classes. Kindergarten classes will begin Thursday, August 27th. Students will need to line-up outside by their designated door (see attached map). Each teacher will have a “social distance” line for students to line up on. Due to the COVID pandemic, our traditional Back-To-School Morning will not take place this year. We are sad we will miss this opportunity to meet all of you! To promote safety, we ask that you say goodbye to your child outside as we will be following protocols to our school reopening plans and not letting in visitors during the day. Teachers will be outside before school Monday so you can see who they are.
Please remember that the Utah Health Department has stated the following: “every individual on school property must wear a face mask which covers the nose and mouth without openings that can be seen through, secures under the chin, and fits snugly against the sides of the nose and the face. Face masks must be worn, even when an individual is able to physical distance, except in very limited circumstances.”
Face-To-Face learners will have lunch Monday through Thursday in our cafeteria. On Fridays, students may come pick-up a ‘to-go’ lunch. This will only be for students enrolled at Bacchus Elementary and normal lunch cost applies.
• Pick-up times are from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Friday when school is in session.
• You will need to pick lunch up from the outside cafeteria door, which is on our west side of the building. There will NOT be drive thru pick-up at this time.
Thank you for riding this wild roller coaster with us! We have appreciated the patience you have all shown us. When we learn about changes, we then need to take time plan how these changes will affect us. So again, thank you for understanding. If you have questions give us a call 385-646-4762. We also try to keep our webpage up to date, so feel free to check there as well. See you soon!
