AT-HOME LEARNING DAY

Friday, April 21, is an at-home learning day for our students while teachers attend required professional development sessions. On this day, all students in the district will learn at home. Teachers will provide learning tasks and materials to students in advance.

Please note that we will not be serving school meals to students on Friday, April 21. Additionally, the federal waivers, which previously allowed students the ability to eat school meals at home, have expired, which means we are unable to provide grab-and-go meals like we’ve been able to provide in the past.

Families will be able to access the community pantries at the three district community learning centers, which are open from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday - Friday. The pantries are made possible through the Salt Lake Education Foundation and its supporters, which have stocked these pantries in the effort to address student food insecurity.

presidents

Presidents' Day is a federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday in February; Presidents' Day 2022 will occur on Monday, February 21. Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington, the holiday became popularly known as Presidents' Day after it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act, an attempt to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers. While several states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents' Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents, past and present.
