The ABCs of PCSD’s new pandemic policies, procedures and protocols

PARK CITY, Utah — The Park City School District (PCSD) has remained one of Utah’s most successful districts in terms of the number of days of keeping schools open during the global pandemic. The first day of school for the 2022/23 year is Wednesday, and it has continued to evolve COVID policies and procedures in conjunction with national, state, and county Health Department rules and regulations, with the ultimate goal of student safety.

For two years, COVID case counts were published on a daily ticker visible to all interested parties at the top of the website. This year, the daily tracker is just as updated and just as visible; that data is not, however, front and center currently. The school district has worked tirelessly to keep each and every student’s experience as proactively protected and realistic as possible.

The daily diligence of the past two years included online learning, test-to-stay screening, one-way hallway traffic, no locker usage, plexiglass desk separations, possible exposure emails to parents/guardians, close-contact emails to parents/guardians, spaced-out bus seating, mandatory masking, and hand-washing regiments.

The District provided at-home hardware technology for students in need, and the Park City Education Foundation has offered Educator Wellness Emergency Grants.

There is no less care, concern, direction, and dedication to the health and well-being of the education community; there is simply a new and nuanced plan. 

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has subscribed to updated operational guidance for schools to support safe in-person learning on a national basis, and below, the PCSD has published its K – 12 Schools COVID – 19 Guide for the 2022/23 school year.
