April 15, 2020 -- Based in part on Governor Herbert's decision to have all public and charter school remain closed for the rest of the 2019-20 academic year -- and with the best interests for the health and safety of our students, families, faculty and staff -- Park City Day School has decided that we too will continue to engage in our distance learning program for the remainder of the year. Please know that this decision was not taken lightly and has been made in consultation with the Board of Trustees.
March 24, 2020 -- Utah's Governor Herbert announced yesterday that all public schools in Utah will remain closed through May 1 to slow the spread of COVID-19. In consultation with our Board of Trustees, we have made the disappointing but responsible decision to follow this same mandate. PCDS will remain in full distance learning operations through May 1, and we will evaluate a return to campus operations in the weeks ahead.
March 12, 2020 -- The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is a complex and ever-evolving situation that, likely, none of us have experienced before. As always, our highest priority is to protect and maintain the health and safety of our students, families, faculty, and staff. And yet, as citizens of Park City and the world, our social and ethical responsibility is also to engage in behaviors that support the needs of our greater communities. As leading public health officials have shared, and for our city, state, region, and country to combat the spread of this pandemic, we all need to engage in social-distancing strategies. With that said, PCDS has made the decision to close our campus and engage in a distance learning program to commence Wednesday, March 18.
