Hello Parents and Students,

At Snowcrest Junior High School, approximately 1/3 of the student population and 1/3 of the faculty and staff population have been quarantined due to the growing number of positive Covid-19 cases. In consultation with the Weber-Morgan Health Department, Snowcrest Junior High will move into a two-week soft closure beginning tomorrow, Monday, November 9th. Monday, November 9th, will be a teacher prep day. Beginning Tuesday, November 10th, all instruction will be moved online for two weeks. The soft closure will extend through November 20th. School will resume with in-person instruction on November 23rd. We simply cannot provide a quality and safe educational experience when we are missing a 1/3 of our student population and a 1/3 of our faculty and staff. This closure will help provide a safe instructional experience during the next two weeks. To review the specifics regarding what leads to a closure, click here for the Utah Department of Health manual (page 95). Due to the fact that Snowcrest Jr. High is a smaller educational setting, not all parameters cited in the manual related to school closure apply. An effective and safe educational experience cannot be facilitated at this time due to the large proportion of students and staff who are quarantined at home. 

During the closure, the building will be disinfected and sanitized according to our Safe Weber Framework. https://wsd.net/covid-19/news/safe-weber

A couple of important items to know with regards to this soft closure:

  • This is not considered a quarantine for all students in the school. This is a preventative measure to help slow the spread of COVID-19 by reducing the number of people in the school. Any students who have been quarantined to this point by the Weber-Morgan Health Department are still considered quarantined until their release date. If your child is ever exposed at school to someone who has tested positive for COVID, we will contact you directly regarding the quarantine requirements.
  • During the soft closure, all students are expected to attend and participate with their classes during the designated times. This should be done via Google Meet with the teachers. Check their Canvas sites for more information. We are going to follow the schedule below each day: 

1st period: 8:00am- 8:25am
2nd period: 8:35am-9:00am
3rd period: 9:10am-9:35am
4th period: 9:45am- 10:10am
5th period: 10:20am -10:45am
6th period:11:05am-11:30am
7th period: 11:35am-12:00pm

  • During this soft closure, do not consider this a "Work at your own pace" situation. Be diligent about engaging in your google meets and completing the assignments. We want you all to continue the second quarter on the right academic path.
  • Communication is going to be key with your teachers. If there are questions or concerns, ask early and get the help. Teachers are available from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm for individual online meetings as needed, by appointment.
  • Students who test positive for Covid-19 during the soft closure should still report this outcome to the school for tracking purposes. Accurate and timely reporting will help us make prudent and safe decisions going forward. We are still conducting contact tracing and expect to have additional students and staff placed on quarantine. We also anticipate that we will receive additional positive COVID cases.
  • Those students attending Project Lead The Way Classes will participate with their classes through Canvas. PLTW buses will not be running. 
  • During this school closure, in accordance with the health department and UHSAA guidelines, our volleyball team and NAL (National Academic League) will have their season suspended.
  • The Seminary building will also be closed as part of the soft closure. 
  • The building will be closed on Monday, November 9th, until 9:30am. Students who need to access their school supplies for online learning may access the building after 9:30am. Visits to get supplies should be a quick in and out. 
  • We will continue to work closely with officials from the Weber Morgan Health Department in monitoring this situation and we will provide updates as needed.

We would like to remind everyone to continue to be vigilant in following current health guidelines by wearing face coverings, practicing good hygiene and physically distancing from others to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We look forward to getting our students back to school. Please continue to do your part as we move through this soft closure.
