BACK TO SCHOOL
Granite School District Votes On Distance Learning For Secondary Schools

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Granite School District voted to make Fridays distance learning days in its secondary school.
Previously, the district announced it would go back to school on a traditional schedule of five days a week with the option for online learning.
With the new schedule, students won’t be in schools Fridays. This addresses a major problem of teacher planning time.
Two parents who spoke at the meeting said they were against five-day weeks and were interested in other options.
“We might not have to be on that modified schedule for long – not having online school in the long term,” said parent Meg Thunnell.
“We want a modified schedule instead of a five-day week schedule,” said parent Natalie Larson. “We need more time for the procedures to be prepared for.”
Parents have until Thursday to request in-person or online learning.
