July 8, 2020 Letter to Parents and Staff from Superintendent Joel Coleman
Dear USDB Families,
Thank you for your support during these challenging and changing times in education and in our communities. Our USDB education teams have spent the past several weeks working on plans to safely bring students back to school this fall. Now that we have final requirements from state officials for K-12 School Reopening, we are finalizing our plans and preparing to share those details in the coming days.

Please keep your eyes open for the parent and staff survey! Your input will be valuable as we produce our plans. Your feedback will be incorporated into the final draft plan before the end of July. The initial plan to reopen USDB will also be approved by the Utah State Board of Education.

Thank you for your participation in our plans to safely reopen our campuses.


Joel Coleman

What if parents are opposed to the masking requirement? 

It’s important to treat everyone with dignity and respect. Even though a statewide public health order has the force of law, it’s best to appeal to a person’s sense of the greater good. Remind others that a mask requirement is a temporary measure during the current risk phase.
