Mask Up! Utah Revises School Quarantine Rules For Students, Employees Who Don Masks

Time in quarantine could be cut in half for Canyons students and employees who were wearing masks during the moments they were possibly exposed to COVID-19 while at school.  

Under guidelines released by Utah government and education officials on Thursday, Oct. 8, quarantined students and employees who test negative for COVID-19 after the seventh day from their last exposure — and, importantly, only if they were wearing masks at the time of exposure — can return to in-person learning, activities, and work.  

The previous length of the quarantine as mandated by health authorities was 14 days.

Free Sack Meals to Fuel Friday’s At-Home Learning

Canyons District’s lunch crews remain committed to ensuring all students have uninterrupted access to nutritious meals.

Starting Oct. 9, Fridays will be a day for independent, at-home learning for students — and CSD’s Nutrition Services Professionals will make sure they are properly fueled for a full day of study.

On Thursdays, school lunchrooms will double the number of meals they normally prepare, adding a sack lunch to the mix for students to take home and enjoy on Friday. Schools that serve breakfast will also prepare a grab-and-go breakfast.

The sack meals will be made available free of charge for as long as federal grant funding remains in place. Efforts will be made to distribute the meals at the end of the school day so they can be quickly refrigerated. This is important as the sack meals will contain perishable items. Nutrition information for the meals can be found at CSD’s online lunch menu.  

Due to special safety considerations, Jordan Valley School will not be sending sack meals home with students.
