Park City High School and Treasure Mountain Junior High students will return to school for in person learning on Monday, January 25, 2021. All secondary students and staff will participate in “Test to Stay” while transmission index remains high. This allows students and staff to participate in in-person learning as safely as possible while lessening the burden of quarantine and multiple soft closures on students and their families, teachers, and school administrators. For more information, see the “Test to Stay Protocol” at https://www.pcschools.us/
Over the past few years, a team of industry leaders have been collecting feedback from the community to create a comprehensive plan for the future of learning in Park City. This team has spent hours planning, listening, surveying, updating and sharing. Their Master Planning Proposal was presented to the Board of Education in May of 2020. The presentation highlighted the various projects and needs the district will address in the upcoming years.
Under the guidance of the Utah Department of Health, quarantines are no longer required for students and staff exposed to COVID-19 if they were wearing masks during the time of an exposure and if they do not develop any symptoms of COVID-19. While a 14-day quarantine is still the most effective way to prevent spread, this change is based on the evidence that face masks greatly reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. PCSD anticipates this will provide more opportunities for students and staff to participate in in-person learning without adding additional risk to the health and safety of students and staff.
Preschool enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year will be done via lottery.

Educational opportunities start early at PCSD. Both the 3-year-old program and 4-year-old program offer a comprehensive learning experience and supportive environment with classes housed at district elementary school facilities for added security and safety. Teaching, done by a lead teacher, assistant teacher and support staff in each class, is targeted to all areas of each child’s development. The staff/child ratio is intentionally kept low (maximum of 1:7 for 3-yr-olds and 1:9 for 4-yr-olds) to ensure each child receives what they need in order to succeed. At each preschool, teachers and parents work together to help children grow and progress, monthly utilizing data-based professional development for continuous skill growth.
Utah Dual Language Immersion (DLI) is a state supported program in which students spend half the day in English with one teacher and half the day with another teacher in a second language. Park City School District offers programs with Spanish and French as second languages. The mission of Dual Immersion is to prepare linguistically and culturally competent students who can successfully compete in a complex global economy.

Effective Monday, November 16, 2020, school breakfast and lunch will be available at no charge through SY 2020/2021 for all Park City School District students under a nationwide waiver from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Details about the program can be found here.
