Dear BCE Parents and Guardians, I hope you’re having a wonderful summer and finding time to get outdoors and enjoy Utah’s beautiful weather. As you would have heard, Jordan School District announced that school will resume in August 2020 with options for at-School learning or full time virtual learning from home. Although the updated reopening plan will not be sent out until later this month, I wanted to provide you with some resources to help your students get used to wearing a mask and washing their hands, if you opt for the at-school learning option. It would be greatly appreciated if you could begin the process of normalizing these practices with your child before they go back to school. Despite the circumstances, it is our goal to make the transition back to school as smooth as possible and we can’t do it without your help. Please see below the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations for making and wearing a cloth covering. In addition, there are posters with suggestions on how to help your child wear their mask, along with resources on teaching hand washing. Once again, we greatly appreciate your cooperation getting your student ready to return to school in the fall. In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy and enjoy the remainder of your summer.
Morgan Hunter, Ed.S School Psychologist Butterfield Canyon Elementary Jordan School District, UT
