Welcome Back to School Layton EL

Wisdom begins with Wonder - Socrates

Thank you for joining us.

It was so good to have our Layton EL students and families back in the building Friday night at our Back to School Celebration Open House. We could feel the excitement and energy in the air and can’t wait to see you again this week.

Big picture


On your student’s first day back to school, remember to drop off your child in the East Carpool area or have them walk to the back of the school after 8:35 am. Teachers will be there, ready to welcome your child and will provide them a mask and lanyard. When the 8:45 am bell rings, teachers will escort students to class. Parents please make plans to pick up your students in the back of the school and prearrange meeting places.

No parents or visitors will be admitted into the school at this time unless they have an appointment or are scheduled to volunteer.

  • Aug 25th L-Z First Day Back at School-students will attend Tues and Thursday this week
  • Aug 26th A-K First Day Back to School-students will attend Wed and Friday this week

EARLY OUT FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK - Plan on picking up your student at 1:25 pm.



Parents and Students, please review the teacher video presentations that were sent to you last week. Layton EL teachers have shared procedures, classroom rules, and learning expectations specific to their classroom.

If you did not receive a video, please contact your child's teacher.


Student devices will be checked out to students after Labor Day. Students will need to transport devices to and from school and they will need to be fully charged prior to bringing them back to school. Please sign the User Agreement in MyDSD as soon as possible. You will need to complete this task in order for your student to check out a device. If you choose, device insurance will be available on MyDSD.

ARRIVAL AT SCHOOL – 8:35 AM or later

Please drop your children off in designated carpool area, east of the school. Outside adult supervision will begin at 8:35 am. Avoid dropping your students off in the front of the school. This area is for Buses and Day Care vehicles only. Students may not enter or exit the building through the front doors.


Breakfast begins at 8:20 am. The front doors will be locked and students will use the West entrance to enter the cafeteria.

At this time, parents may not eat breakfast with their students.


Remote Day and Davis Connect students may purchase and pick up a lunch at 10:30 in the front of the school if they choose.


Please make an appointment if you plan to enter the school. Upon entering the school, prepare to show your ID, take a short CoVid Survey, have your temperature checked, and wear a mask.
