School Schedules on February 28

Dear SLCSD families and community, 

I am writing to inform you that on Friday, February 28, 2020, the Salt Lake Education Association (our district’s teachers’ association) has declared a Day of Action. Teachers will be holding a walk-out in the afternoon to encourage the Utah Legislature to prioritize public education funding. 

In the Salt Lake City School District (SLCSD), our highest priority is the education and safety of your students. With so many teachers anticipated to participate in the walk-out, we will not have the capacity to provide adequate supervision to keep your students safe and learning that afternoon. Accordingly, we need to implement a half-day schedule on Friday, February 28, for all SLCSD schools. 

All schools will begin at their usual time, and buses will operate on their normal morning schedule. Breakfast and lunch will be available to students at every SLCSD school. However, our schools will end that day at either 11:45am or 12:30pm. If your students normally take the bus home from school, buses will be available on Friday to take them home at the earlier release times. 

Please refer to the list below to verify the end time for your child’s school.
