We are anxiously awaiting the first day of school on August 19th when we will welcome students back into the buildings with additional safety procedures and protocols in place. The Kane School District has planned for months to have the needed personal protective equipment, sanitizing, disinfecting materials and protocols in place to begin school. We are ready to begin schools with faculty, staff, and student health as our top priority. As you know, in accordance with the State Public Health Order, everyone will be required to wear face coverings to begin school. Please have face coverings on your students when they enter the school building or ride the bus. We have encouraged teachers to incorporate multiple outside recess breaks where students may remove their face coverings while practicing social distancing and in accordance with the State Public Health Order. If you would prefer a blended or online option to your student’s education, please contact the building administrator for additional information.
Additionally, we are counting on parents to symptom check their children each day and keep them home if they have any of the following:
Keep your child home if:
- Fever of 100.4 or higher
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Sore throat
- Muscle aches and pain
- Cough (not related to asthma)
- New loss of taste or smell
Return to school after:
Students and staff should follow these guidelines (if positive for COVID OR showing any COVID symptoms) per Utah Department of Health before returning to school or being around others:
- They have had no fever for at least 24 hours (that is one full day of no fever without the use of medicine that reduces fevers), AND
- Other symptoms have improved (for example, when your cough or shortness of breath have improved), AND
- At least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared
IF YOU FEEL SICK, STAY HOME!
