Due to the school dismissal because of COVID19, we have closed all of our kitchens. There will be no more food orders until further notice. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding. Stay safe!
Dear Granite School District Patrons and Employees,
As with the NEWLY announced guidance from the Statewide Coronavirus Taskforce, Granite District will immediately implement a districtwide 2 week dismissal. Please review the entire message as it will likely answer the bulk of your questions. Additional updates will be made available on our homepage at www.graniteschools.org and on our social media channels.
This is NOT a closure. These are preventative measures to help reduce the spread of disease. This recommendation will continue to be evaluated and further adjustments could be made with ongoing guidance from State and Local Health officials.
Effective immediately, students will be dismissed from daily attendance, returning Monday, March 30th. A school dismissal is defined as students do not report to school, but facilities remain open and staff report to work as normal. School will continue for students, but on a digital and distance platform.
-On Monday and Tuesday, teachers will prepare to teach in the new platforms.
-All teachers and other employees (including hourly) will report to work at their normal contract time and adhere to appropriate social distancing measures. Teachers would be in classrooms to prepare to provide resources and materials for digital and distance learning.
-Starting Wednesday, March 18, schools will initiate digital and distance instruction. Parents and students who do not have access to technology or a device at home, may come to the school to checkout a chromebook (which will require wifi access at home). Parents will need to sign a checkout form in order to obtain access to a device. Hardcopy learning modules will be made available for students who do not have access to the internet at home. Students will not be required to come to campus once digital and distance learning is initiated. We will not be able to accommodate student usage of school internet during this dismissal.
-As always, the expectation is that students will be accountable for the work assigned and we ask for parents to work with their teachers and children through this non-traditional circumstance. Retakes, assignment turn-ins and so forth will be coordinated with teachers through canvas, email or teacher work phone (please do not text teachers).
-School locations that provide breakfast will continue that service in a Grab and Go service at pickup times that the schools will specify.
-Grab and Go lunches will be provided for ALL students. These WILL be available on Monday, March 16 through Wednesday, March 18th, and after Spring Break. Students will NOT be able to eat their meals on campus. Schools will provide specific information on pickup times through your school’s traditional communication tools.
-Spring Break dates for our District are still applicable (Thursday, March 19th – Student Non-attendance day. Friday, March 20th-Monday, March 23rd – Spring Break). Meals WILL NOT be provided during the break.
-All other additional school sponsored activities are canceled for the next two weeks. This includes extra-curricular activities and other sports practices.
-There will be NO supervision on school property including playgrounds and playfields.
-Student internships and other external programs are canceled for the next two weeks.
-Adult Education courses are dismissed but the testing center will remain open with appropriate restrictions. Please contact the testing center for information at (385) 646-5447.
-ALL preschool classes are canceled.
-Community Centers are closed.
All activities and events previously canceled are still canceled. ADDITIONAL GUIDANCE for specific employee groups is forthcoming.
We recognize that this has been a tumultuous few days. As always, our decisions are made with the expertise and guidance of State and County Health Departments and we will continue to keep you up to date as this dynamic situation unfolds. Thanks for your ongoing patience and support as we work to keep our students and employees safe.
Granite School District
Dear Granite District Patrons and Employees,
We have been awaiting the conclusion of a statewide press event announcing new measures as a result of the dynamic COVID-19 situation in our state. We continue to collaborate with our Health Department partners on multiple levels and the information in this message entails all of the latest guidance. We are very aware of the concerns parents and employees have regarding the health of students and staff in our schools. There have been many employee questions and many parent questions. We believe it is beneficial to address this message to our entire Granite community to share our broader approach as follows:
-All out of state student travel scheduled through the next 30-days (April 11) will been canceled. Further guidance and additional restrictions will be evaluated at that time.
-Mass gatherings including school events, field trips or sports activities that involve more than 100 people in close proximity are canceled until further notice.
-NO SCHOOL CLOSURES are recommended at this time and we have been given guidelines and trigger points from health officials that we will adhere to in order to enact a closure. Additional steps will be taken at the school level to minimize congregation of students in close proximity per state guidance.
-No dances, assemblies or school wide activities that involve mass congregation of students (over 100) in a concentrated group, will take place in the duration.
The most current information we have to relay from the Health Department (media reports notwithstanding) is that COVID-19 is unlikely to be transmitted by someone who does not have symptoms, so any interactions with an individual before they were ill, are considered low-risk for transmission. Consequently, 2nd hand contact is also considered low-risk. In other words, YOU HAVE TO HAVE SYMPTOMS (fever, cough, shortness of breath) IN ORDER TO TRANSMIT THIS DISEASE.
For our students and families, we respect the rights of parents to make decisions as they feel appropriate and our attendance policy will reflect that respect. We expect that our schools will work with our families to provide appropriate accommodations in light of the current circumstances. As always, students who are absent from school will be provided opportunities to make up their learning. We also have plans and the capacity for digital/distance/online learning where instruction can proceed. We are prepared to implement these plans should the need arise.
The direction we have received from the state, is that schools should REMAIN OPEN if at all possible, because of the unique impact on our total community when a school is closed. Only in cases of “imminent threat,” and in concert with the Salt Lake County Health Department, would a closure decision be made.
Some of our communities may have been impacted by the announcement regarding the Utah Jazz and player illness. Here is link to specific guidance related to those circumstances – www.coronavirus.utah.gov
Based on current Health Department guidance, employees will not be excused from work for first hand contact with someone who later developed symptoms or second hand contact in a similar situation. Employees or students who HAVE had contact with someone displaying symptoms or have concerns of any kind regarding their personal situation, should contact their health care provider or the state COVID-19 hotline at 1-800-456-7707 and adhere to their guidance.
Specifically for our employees, sick leave use is governed by employment contracts and is administered through our District benefits office. Other types of leave for various employee groups (including hourly employees) are governed by District policy. Questions regarding leave should be directed to supervisors. Any directive to quarantine from a health care provider should be submitted to the District benefits office. The Health Department will notify the District when they recommend that individual employees be quarantined.
Additional updates or school specific guidance will be forthcoming as appropriate. As mentioned previously, this is a dynamic situation and circumstances will continue to evolve. We are committed to ensuring our students and staff have a safe learning and working environment and appreciate your patience and support.
