NORTH LOGAN – In a letter addressed to employees and parents on Wednesday morning, Cache County School District spokesperson Tim Smith announced Cache County School District will continue on the abbreviated school day schedule for students into the end of the school year.

“While COVID numbers are drastically lower, we continue to see high rates of absenteeism,” Smith said. “We feel it is important to continue to provide time for teachers to work with students who have been absent and who may be behind on their school work.”

The schedule would remain as follows:

  • Morning kindergarten and preschool: 9:05 a.m. to 11:50 p.m.
  • Afternoon kindergarten and preschool: 12:05 p.m. to 2:50 p.m.
  • Elementary schools: 9:05 a.m. to 2:50 p.m.
  • Middle and high school: 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Smith said the district appreciates the support they have received from parents over the past two years.

“We know that not every decision we made as a school district were decisions everyone agreed with but you have overwhelmingly supported us and trusted us with your children. Thank you,” Smith said.

Smith said the partnership between parents and schools would be crucial to begin exiting the pandemic phase and resume normal school routine. He asked parents to support regular school attendance to support the students.

“If there is one thing we have learned from this pandemic, it is the importance of school attendance,” Smith said. “We know we can serve your students better in-person than online or virtually.”
