Dear Granite District Patrons and Employees,
As many of you may have heard, the Governor has initiated some additional guidance as of 4 p.m. (Friday, March 27, 2020) this afternoon. Full details of this directive can be found at https://coronavirus.utah.gov/latest/.
Some of this new guidance applies directly to our school operations as follows:
- Distance learning WILL CONTINUE.
- Schools will still be open but with limited personnel, and patrons SHOULD CALL IN ADVANCE and set an appointment to ensure appropriate social distancing.
- Playground equipment and areas are NOW closed (this does NOT include open field spaces but please practice safe social distancing).
- Grab and Go breakfast and lunch service WILL continue. However, to the highest extent possible, please remain in your vehicles and food will be brought to you. Hours remain the same (8-9am for breakfast and 11:30am – 1pm for lunch). Lunch locations will be reduced starting on Monday. Please check the Granite website later this weekend for a list of updated distribution sites. As a reminder, ANY student of Granite School District can go to ANY of our locations for food service. Please spread out during these times as much as possible to ensure appropriate social distancing.
For our employees, the vast majority of the guidance discussed today has already been implemented. Therefore, previous guidance specific to our employees is still applicable. One notable addition to that guidance is the opportunity for hourly employees to participate in online training from home for a portion of their work time. This should be done in coordination with the direct supervisor.
As indicated by the Governor, additional more restrictive guidance may be forthcoming from our local County Health Department. We will update you on that guidance when it is received.
Thanks for your help and support of these initiatives designed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We hope you stay safe and healthy.
Granite School District
