3-10-20: Park City School District is working closely with Summit County health officials and will follow their expert recommendations to best ensure the safety of everyone in our school community. Of course learning at school primarily occurs inside classrooms with face-to-face teaching by certified educators using interactive technology tools.

School Closure Q/A

Be assured we are currently doing the following:

– Working proactively to clean all high-touch surfaces nightly.

– Promoting safe hygiene methods with students, staff, and community.

– Actively monitoring illness statistics across the district.

– Examining student and staff travel for continuation.

– Preparing educational mission for at-home, electronic, and paper delivery.

– Preparing staff for optimal operations in the event of a closure.

– Preparing for post incident recovery of schools in the event of a closure.

COVID-19 is spread very similar to the flu and common colds. For this reason, we are encouraging our students and staff to actively wash their hands and take all of the same precautions they would normally take to avoid these illnesses. Please encourage your children to do the same at home as they build healthy habits.


El Distrito Escolar de Park City está trabajando en estrecha colaboración con los funcionarios de salud del Condado de Summit y seguirá sus recomendaciones expertas para garantizar la seguridad de todos en nuestra comunidad escolar. Por supuesto, el aprendizaje en nuestra escuela ocurre principalmente dentro de las aulas con enseñanza presencial por parte de instructores certificados que utilizan herramientas tecnológicas interactivas.

Cierre de la escuela Q/A

Tenga la seguridad de que actualmente estamos haciendo lo siguiente:

– Trabajando proactivamente para limpiar todas las superficies de alto contacto todas las noches.

– Promoviendo métodos de higiene seguros con estudiantes, personal y comunidad.

– Monitoreando activamente las estadísticas de enfermedades en todo el distrito.

– Examinando los viajes de estudiantes y personal.

– Preparando la misión educativa para ser distribuida en el hogar, electrónicamente y en papel.

– Preparando al personal para operaciones óptimas en caso de cierre.

– Preparándonos para la recuperación de las escuelas después del incidente en caso de cierre.

COVID-19 se propaga de manera muy similar a la gripe y los resfriados comunes. Por esta razón, alentamos a nuestros estudiantes y al personal a que se laven las manos activamente y tomen las mismas precauciones que normalmente tomarían para evitar estas enfermedades. Anime a sus hijos a hacer lo mismo en casa mientras desarrollan hábitos saludables.

Instructional Material Policy Updated

It is the policy of the Board of Education that all primary instructional materials be selected from the State of Utah’s Recommended Instructional Materials System (RIMS) list or specifically approved by the PCSD Board of Education. The following policy, Policy 9050 Instructional Materials, shall be observed in the selection and purchase of instructional materials used in classrooms and library media centers in the district.

This policy will be posted a minimum of 20 days. Comments regarding proposed changes can be sent to Lorie Pearce at lpearce@pcschools.us. Comments on this policy must be received prior to the June 16 Board of Education meeting.
