Welcome Back to Year-Round Schools!

DSCN4267It is back to the books for the 15 year-round elementary schools in Jordan School District and we want to wish everyone a warm welcome back! Teachers, custodians, office staff and principals worked hard to make the schools and classrooms fun and inviting for students on their first day back. Parents too did their share of hard work getting children everything they needed for back-to-school. Good luck to everyone on a successful and productive school year. Together let’s strive for the best in education for our young people every day. Enjoy a photo gallery of back-to-school on our Facebook page.
