Shorter Quarantines

  • A quarantine will end after 10 days if no symptoms are reported.
  • A quarantined individual may return to school after seven days if they test negative on or after day seven and report no symptoms. This is only for an exposure that occurred outside of a household.

In addition, the Salt Lake County Health Department has revised the free rapid COVID-19 testing times at the Maverik Center, 2051 West 3100 South in West Valley City. Register for a test at the following link:

Community Helps to Keep Kids from Going Hungry Over Fall Break

Pictures of food for fall break bagsJosefina Swensen is once again hard at work inside Majestic Elementary School. She is on a mission to make sure students don’t go hungry during fall break. So, Josefina is filling fall break food bags, one for every single student in the school. The food bags are filled with everything from fruit snacks, tuna, soup and cereal to Ramen noodles, crackers, cheese, pop tarts and pudding. Generous support from the community like ‘Kids Eat’ and ‘Blessings in a Backpack’ have made it possible to provide the food for students while they are away from school next week.
Thanks to Josefina and our kind, caring community partners for helping to meet the needs of students every day.

Thank you, custodians!
