NORTH LOGAN – Schools throughout the Cache County School District will not all begin classes at the same time. On Friday the district announced modified start dates for its elementary, middle and high schools.

The district has reiterated its commitment to keep schools clean and to continue working with the Bear River Health District to monitor trends in the community. The district also asked for several commitments from parents before students attend classes: to careful monitor their children for symptoms and to keep them home when they are ill; and, to cooperate with school and health department directives on isolation or quarantines when positive cases of COVID-19 occur in school.

In its communication to parents, the district included a letter jointly produced by Logan Regional Hospital, Cache Valley Hospital and the Bear River Health Department. The letter implores students to practice physical distancing, to wear a face mask when physical distancing is difficult to maintain, to practice good hand hygiene, and to stay home when sick.

“We likewise encourage you, as parents, to model these same behaviors as much as possible, particularly masking up in public,” the health providers added. “If your child sees you do it, they are more likely to be comfortable doing it.”

    Homeschooling sounds like the best option.

    I will set an example for children by NOT wearing an unnecessary mask. I refuse to teach children to be afraid of a threat that quite simply, does not exist. Nor will I teach them to participate in this whole covid scam!!!

    Deja, please keep your kids at home so teachers don’t have to waste instructional time reminding your children about the rules for attending in- person school during a global pandemic.

    Deja, and the world is really flat.

    Serious illness and death are not even remotely related to politics.some people will not take anything seriously until it actually affects them.also lets think of our school teachers who are there to teach and care for children for hours everyday while the parents go about their own life.they and everyone working in schools deserve our respect and consideration.it is predicted that in the next 15 to 20 years public school systems may not even be available.so if you want to send you’re kids to public school you need to be involved and put forth effort to sustain and respect the teachers and be a part of you’re child’s education and everyone’s safety
