Employee COVID-19 Vaccination Information

We have been informed by the Salt Lake County Health Department that Jordan School District will receive 2,080 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine on Friday, January 15. This represents our initial allotment of vaccinations, based on enrollment, which are being divided between Jordan, Granite, Canyons, Murray and Salt Lake City school districts.

All five districts have collaborated on a unified plan for vaccine distribution based on guidance from the health department. The recommendation is to distribute the vaccines based on age, with older employees receiving the vaccine first. This process and plan will ensure vaccine doses are equitably distributed to districts as they become available.

On Monday we began sending email invitations to eligible employees, 54 and older, to participate in the first round of vaccinations this Friday, January 15.

As soon as you are eligible, you will receive a direct email invitation to participate asking you to choose a time and location.

Vaccinations will be provided on an ongoing basis each Friday until all of our employees have had the opportunity to be vaccinated if they choose to do so. Vaccinations are not required.

Thank you for your support and patience in this process. If you have any questions please email or call Nadine Page at nadine.page@jordandistrict.org and 801-567-8182.

Big congratulations are in order for some very talented students and staff at Mountain Ridge High School. The MRHS marching band had a musical plan in place and some very big goals going into the State competition. Their performance was focused on a theme of nature replicating sounds of a storm with lightening, rain and wind – it was described as majestic and beautiful. The show was a big hit and the MRHS marching band took first place in their first competition of the season!

Congratulations to the MRHS marching band! We can’t wait to see what is next from this talented group of musicians.
