Governor lifts mask mandate in K-12 schools

Governor Spencer J. Cox announced the public health order regarding masks in K-12 public schools will no longer be in effect during the final week of school. For Tooele County School District, this is May 24-28, 2021. Our Board of Education and administration have consistently and diligently adhered to all statewide health orders throughout this pandemic in an effort to ensure our staff and students' safety. As such, while masks are still highly encouraged, they will not be required beginning May 24, (click on the article title for more information).

Learning about Life Cycles in the Classroom

This spring, hundreds of our elementary students learned about the life cycles of various species in a firsthand way. Thanks to the Tooele Education Foundation and a grant from Cargill, students in 95 classrooms across the district either observed caterpillars grow into butterflies, chicks hatching from fertilized eggs in incubators or cared for plants and goldfish in an aquaponics set up.

Schedule Change

There has been a change to the school year calendar. May 28 will still be the last day of school for all Tooele Valley schools, however, it will be an in-person learning day with elementary students being dismissed at 12:30 p.m. and secondary students dismissed at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, May 27 will be a digital learning day (no in-person school).

For Dugway, Ibapah, Vernon & Wendover area schools, May 27 will be the last day of school. Students will meet in-person Monday-Thursday with dismissal for all students at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday.

Ophir Summer Classes

Though COVID-19 torpedoed our efforts to provide Ophir Canyon Education Center summer classes in 2020, this surely won’t be the case with our 2021 ability to engage kids with outdoor learning opportunities. We are full steam ahead and have many classes planned that we think will be enjoyed by many students!

Earth Day

According to Earthday.Org, on April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans protested for a healthy, sustainable environment. By the end of that year, the first Earth Day had led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species Acts. Fifty-one years later, the annual Earth Day celebration continues. Earthday.Org’s theme for this year is Restore Our Earth. It focuses on natural processes and emerging green technologies that can restore the world's ecosystems.
