The Utah State health department has recently made some updates to the Coronavirus information on their website. To read up-to-date information, go to www.coronavirus.utah.gov/education.
Canyon Rim Academy will follow guidance and direction from state and local health departments.
Per health department recommendations, masks are STRONGLY RECOMMENDED for all students and staff while indoors.
Please be aware that, per state law, we do not have the authority to initiate a mask mandate for students. This is a dynamic situation, and CRA will comply with any and all state directives made at any point during the school year, and we will continue to adhere to guidance from the health department.
Harassment in any form, directed either at those who wear face coverings or those who choose not to, will not be tolerated.
Those who are exposed at school will NOT be quarantined if they have no symptoms and any of the following: they had a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the past 90 days, have been fully vaccinated, the positive individual and the exposed individual were both wearing masks at the time of exposure, they were wearing an N95/KN95 mask at the time of exposure.
Only those individuals who are believed to have had direct exposure or close contact to someone with COVID-19 at the school will be notified. Close contact means you were closer than 6 feet for 15 minutes or more from someone who has the virus. If contacted, the health department will provide specific guidance related to testing and quarantine.
In most cases, the health department will contact individuals who were in the same class or other area as someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, but do not need to quarantine because they were not directly exposed. In these situations, the health department will encourage close monitoring for symptoms for a specified period of time.
Please note that when we are contacted by the health department we send to a class a notice of possible exposure. If individuals are deemed close contacts they will receive a notice of quarantine. Both letters are generated from the health department.
The health department may direct those who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 to get tested. In these cases, families will be contacted directly for guidance. If there is a case at your school and you have not been contacted regarding exposure, it means your child was not directly exposed to COVID-19. Continue monitoring for symptoms as usual, and follow the guidance of your healthcare provider, or call the Salt Lake County Public Health Hotline (385-468-4636).
