COVID-19 Reminders for Current School Year And District Plans for 2021-22 School Year

Dear parents and guardians,

As the current school year begins to wind down, we want to inform you not only of COVID-19 protocols that will continue to be practiced, but also give you a sense of what we envision the upcoming school year will be like.

April 30- June 15
• The district and its schools will continue to follow face mask protocols through June 15 — when State Public Health Order 2021-2 ends. The district will continue to accept applications for mask exemptions and will approve those that include proper documentation. The rest of the district’s “Big Five” will also continue to be practiced, including proper hand washing and hygiene protocols, staying home when sick, cleaning and disinfecting, and maintaining physical distancing where possible.
• Students who participate in extracurricular activities will continue to adhere to Test to Play protocols and will be required to be tested for COVID-19 every 14 days. Those who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the previous 90 days and show no symptoms, or have completed vaccinations, will not be tested.
• Students who take part in high school dances will also adhere to Test to Sway protocols. Participants will be required to be tested for COVID-19 within 48 hours of the dance. Students who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the previous 90 days and show no symptoms, or have completed vaccinations, will not be tested.
• No overnight student travel is allowed.

June 16 – August 22
• Wearing face masks — barring future health orders — will no longer be a requirement in any Davis School District schools or facilities.
• The district will continue to adhere to Utah High School Activity Association directives. There is no intention, at this point, to test students who participate in extracurricular activities for COVID-19.
• Students will be permitted to travel in-state overnight. Decisions about out-of-state student travel have not yet been reached.

Beginning August 23
• Davis School District returns to a traditional five-day a week schedule for the 2021-22 school year. Unless there is new legislation and/or new public health orders that require otherwise, there will be no COVID-19 restrictions.
• There will be no mask requirements for students, staff or the public, and no mandatory testing for students to take part in extracurricular activities or dances.
• Davis Connect, the district’s online school, will continue to offer K-12 education for those who choose to receive education in this manner.
• Student travel will be allowed.

In a related note, some of the practices we’ve used in the “Big Five” do make sense to continue into the new school year. Those would include proper handwashing and hygiene etiquette, staying home when sick, and cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. Schools will also continue to provide hand sanitizer for anyone who wants to use it.

Thank you for your continued support,

Christopher Williams, MPC

USBE School Climate Survey for Parents

Dear Parents/Guardians:


We want to hear about your experience with your student's education. We invite you to participate in completing the Utah School Climate Survey. This survey includes questions about your student's learning, school safety, and interpersonal relationships, as well as your attitudes about the institutional environment and your personal involvement in school. Your responses will be very helpful in improving student relationships, learning conditions, and the overall school environment.


Beginning today, we invite all parents, guardians and caretakers to complete this survey for our school. The survey is completely confidential and brief; it contains 33 questions and takes about six minutes to complete. You can take the survey online by using the following link:

https://davis.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9mXmuFDkuZeVOhE


Please submit your responses by May 28th. Survey results will only be reported as group responses. There are no right or wrong answers. We just want to know about your personal experiences. Responses are housed securely in an anonymous format with the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) for evaluation research purposes. All evaluation research projects are in compliance with the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, (343 CFR 99.31 (6)) and human subjects regulations (Protection of Human Subjects 45 CFR 46).


As you respond to each item, think about your own personal experiences as a parent, caregiver or guardian at your student¿s school. Please answer all of the questions.

We hope you will take the time to provide us with this valuable information. Feel free to call the Research Department office at 801-402-5305 if you have any questions. Each school¿s total survey results will be used to inform and develop appropriate strategies, procedures, and/or programs to enhance our school climate.


Again, the link to complete the survey is:

Thank you for your time and participation!
