UPCOMING Dates and Jordan Valley Information for Parents and Guardians:

September 19th (this Friday): No School for Students

September 26th: Late Start for Students (11:15-4:00)

October 3rd: No School for Students

October 24th: Late Start for Students (11:15-4:00)

There are 7 late start days for students. On the Canyons K-5 calendar (the calendar that Jordan Valley follows) it states “student minimal day” or “student early out” on those 7 days. Jordan Valley is actually a late start day on those days. Students will attend school from 11:15-4:00 on those days. The late start allows for Professional Development time with our staff.

You can find the K-5 calendar at canyonsdistrict.org

THANK YOU to all families for coming out to our Back to School/Heroes Night last Friday. We were able to have a BBQ, participate in a lot of activities, visit classrooms and we raised $2,100 for our Sensory Room through our Silent Auction. Thank you families and organizations for your donations.

Your classroom teacher will be calling you soon to set up Parent Teacher Conferences. They will be on the evenings of the 8th and 9th of October.

Phase 2 (classroom upgrades) will be starting in the next few months. Come by at your convenience to see our completed Commons areas upgrades. They include new carpet and wall coverings throughout the building.
