Dear Davis County, Under new IDPH guidance, Davis County CSD will no longer be sending notifications to possible contacts of a COVID-19 case at school. Just as with all illnesses there is risk of possible exposure any day we are around others.

Elementary Relay Update Due to several days of rainfall the K-2 stations and 3-6 field events have been cancelled. At this point in time the K-6 races on the track will continue as scheduled if the weather allows. Please continue to check FaceBook or the district’s website for any additional weather related updates that may occur tomorrow morning. As a reminder, should we unfortunately have to cancel all events for tomorrow due to weather, there is no scheduled rain date. Providing a rain date is not feasible due to the number of volunteers needed and scheduling. The safety of our students is always our first priority.
