Big picture
2021-22 "Step Up Sign Up" Registration

Our office will be open on Thursday, January 28, from 2-7pm and Friday, January 29, from 7am–4pm for 2021-22 Registration. This is for incoming Kindergarteners as well as students returning from home school or local charter schools.

Freeport rapid testing location

With the need for school nurses to continue testing students involved in co-curricular activities, be available to conduct Test to Stay testing in our high schools, and to assist the Davis County Health Department in its vaccination clinic, the decision has been made that the Davis School District will no longer offer rapid COVID-19 tests. However, the Utah Department of Health will continue to provide those rapid tests at the same location. That means any member of the public can receive those COVID-19 tests for free whether they believe they exhibit symptoms of the virus or not. That includes students and staff of the school district who want to return to school after a seven-day quarantine rather than wait to return after 10 days.


The rapid testing clinic, still at Building C-5, will be in operation through February on the following days and times:

•Wednesdays, 9 a.m.-noon

•Fridays, 9 a.m.-noon

•Saturdays, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.


Beginning Jan. 29, a rapid test clinic will also be available at Woods Cross High, 600 W. 2200 South, Woods Cross on the following days and times:

Fridays, 3 p.m.-6 p.m.

Saturdays, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.


Those interested in receiving a test are to complete a registration form at https://c19.health.utah.gov/surveys/?s=TCRCL9RD8E&siteid=FCC-DSD

PLEASE NOTE: WE FOLLOW THE EARLY-OUT SCHEDULE JANUARY 27 & JANUARY 28!

  • All 1st-6th graders will be excused at 1:25pm (no staggered exit those two days).
  • Kindergarten sessions are scheduled for two hours. Morning students come at 8:50am and are excused at 10:50am. Afternoon students come at 11:25pm and stay until 1:25pm, when they are excused with the older students.

A FEW VALENTINE'S DAY GUIDELINES

Like everything else this school year, upcoming Valentine's Day activities will look different because of COVID-19. Teachers have received some basic guidelines to follow if they choose to have a Valentine's Day activity on February 11th. We are sharing the same basic information with you in this newsletter. Classroom teachers will contact parents with details about any Valentine's Day activities being held in their classrooms.

  • If students bring valentines to school, the cards should not be in envelopes to avoid licking AND students should not give treats/candy with their valentines.
  • Student collection boxes should be SIMPLE this year.
  • Other valentine treats can be provided by volunteers, but only items that are individually wrapped and purchased from a store (just like Halloween).
  • Please limit eating during class – we cannot have students in close proximity without masks.
  • There can be individual class parties, but please do not do anything that brings more than one class together unless you schedule the big gym and students remain at their lunchroom seats.
  • Please limit the number of volunteers you invite to the school. Preschoolers are discouraged.
  • Activity forms help us document we are following the “Big 5” and give us the info we need for the online calendar and parent phone calls.
