As Jordan Public Schools plans for the 2021-2022 school year programming and activities, we are committed to keeping our families, staff, students, and community members informed. While there are still many uncertainties regarding what the upcoming school year will look like, we are hard at work to ensure our students continue to have access to a high-quality educational experience.
This web page serves as a hub for updates related to the latest COVID-19 protocols. The situation surrounding COVID-19 is evolving with time. We will regularly update this page as our plans continue to take shape. We encourage you to keep checking back for the latest information.
