Mask Up! Utah Revises School Quarantine Rules For Students, Employees Who Don Masks

Time in quarantine could be cut in half for Canyons students and employees who were wearing masks during the moments they were possibly exposed to COVID-19 while at school.  

Under guidelines released by Utah government and education officials on Thursday, Oct. 8, quarantined students and employees who test negative for COVID-19 after the seventh day from their last exposure — and, importantly, only if they were wearing masks at the time of exposure — can return to in-person learning, activities, and work.  

The previous length of the quarantine as mandated by health authorities was 14 days.

Student Friday Checklist

IHMS Virtual Learning Fridays

Starting on Oct. 9th Indian Hills Middle School and Canyons School District will be making a shift to our schedule.  Friday will be a Virtual Learning Day.  There will be no in person school for students on Fridays.  Friday coursework will be virtual.

What do we mean by a Virtual Learning Friday? 

Friday is a day of learning.  Teachers are expected to have a Canvas Module and assigned learning task for students to complete during the day.  Assignments will be given for each class and should be completed for credit.  We suggest working together with your child and setting a Friday schedule.  Setting schedules and daily routines can be extremely helpful in completing assigned learning tasks efficiently.  Below is a sample student schedule that could be used (or modified) to help your children get the most out of each Virtual Learning Friday.

Students are expected to check in to each class’s Canvas course, review any announcements, and complete the assigned learning tasks.

All Classes will be posting learning tasks/assignments that are expected to take students 20-30 minutes to complete.

Communication:  All classes use Canvas.  This is not a new platform for students.  Students are already using Canvas daily in most of their classes.  Information about the assigned Friday learning tasks will be posted in individual Canvas courses.

Teacher Office Hours on Friday:  All teachers will have office hours on Fridays from 9:00 am – 11:00 am.  During teacher office hours, teachers will be communicating with students and parents and supporting the learning of students through phone calls, emails, and/or Google Meets.
