Virtual Learning Day, November 24th 

Parents & Guardians,

          I'm pleased to inform you that Ogden City School District has chosen to hold a Virtual Learning Day on November 24, 2020.  The purpose of this Virtual Learning Day is to help all students, teachers, and parents be prepared in the event that we would need to temporarily switch to online learning.  While our school's case count is very minimal at this time, we want to be vigilant and prepared. 

          The day will comprise 3 hours of instruction from 9:00 to 12:00.  Your students will be expected to access the material and complete all assignments.  That would be a perfect time for you, parents, to note the challenges that you are facing and to later communicate with the classroom teacher.  Please don't try to reach out to them at that time, as they will all be in workshop sessions.

Thanks you!

Mrs. Espinoza 


Padres y tutores,

          Me complace informarles que el Distrito Escolar de la Ciudad de Ogden ha elegido celebrar un día de aprendrizaje virtual el 24 de noviembre de 2020.  El propósito de este día de aprendizaje virtual es ayudar a todos los estudiantes, maestros, y padres a estar preparados en caso de que necesiten cambiar temporalmente al aprendizaje en línea.  Si bien el recuento de casos de nuestra escuela es mínimo en este momento, queremos estar atentos y preparados.

          La jornada comprenderá 3 horas lectivas de 9:00 a 12:00.  Se espera que sus estudiante accedan al material y completen todas las tareas.  Ese sería un momento perfecto para que ustedes, padres, se den cuenta de los desafíos que están enfrentando y luego se comuniquen con el maestro de la clase.  No intente comunicarse con ellos en ese momento, ya que todos estarán en sesiones de taller. 


Sra. Espinoza 

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

We are looking forward to welcoming back students to classrooms on August 20th. Ogden School District’s Keeping Ogden Healthy plan is being developed with input from students, parents, teachers and staff. It will include planning and preparation around five main areas:

  1. Sanitation & Hygiene
  2. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  3. Social/Physical Distancing 
  4. Student Engagement
  5. Student & Staff Well-Being

The safety and wellbeing of students and staff is a top priority. The registration process includes an opportunity to share student medical conditions that may affect attendance and/or participation in their educational programs or could indicate that a student is high-risk. If you are interested in enrolling your student in Ogden Online (our online learning program) rather than attending school in person, you will receive an email with instructions once you complete the registration process.

¡Bienvenidos al año escolar 2020-2021!
