We are together again and we are united. Welcome back, everyone! Let’s make it an amazing year.
They were climbing to new heights in a summer program created to help students build confidence going into a new school year. More than 100 Jordan School District middle school students participated in a Summer Resilience Program organized by Pivot Adventure. During the 4-week course, cool kids get to have fun outside as they enjoy new adventure activities like rock climbing, building friendships and learning to problem-solve. The goal is for students to walk away with new coping skills when they encounter stressful situations during the school year and beyond.
Congratulations to the amazing students who participated and for the teamwork demonstrated over the course of the summer program. We look forward to seeing you all soon.
They say the best leaders are learners. That’s why a number of Jordan School District principals and school leaders joined others from across the State for the UEN Leading Schools Summit. They all came together for several days of collaboration and inspiration. It was a face to face experience where principals were able to share challenges they are experiencing in schools and then work together on ideas to tackle and overcome those challenges.
It was an opportunity to connect with other principals and gain support of mentors as we prepare for a successful new school year.
We are proud of our principals and other school leaders, always looking for ways to grow and participate in the learning process even over the summer months!

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced recently that it is returning to pre-pandemic rules requiring families to apply for free and reduced lunch, rather than allowing all K-12 students to receive free meals.
Families must once again apply for the income-based free and reduced meals for the 2022-23 school year.
Again, it means that beginning this school year, all students will no longer automatically receive free breakfast and lunch.
Meal prices will remain the same as they were pre-pandemic:
- Elementary Breakfast – 80 cents
- Elementary Lunch – $1.75
- Secondary Breakfast – $1.00
- Secondary Lunch – $2.00
- Reduced Breakfast – 30 cents
- Reduced Lunch – 40 cents
Families can apply for Free/Reduced meals now for the upcoming 2022-23 school year. ***YOU MUST APPLY TO RECEIVE MEAL BENEFITS.
- Free/Reduced meal applications are available at the District Office, at all schools, or online using your Skyward login at skystu.jordan.k12.ut.us
Also, to help meal service in our schools run as smoothly as possible, we remind you to put money in your student’s lunch account before the new school year starts.
Thank you for helping us get the 2022-23 school year off to a nutritious and successful start in our schools and cafeterias.
