 Summer 2020 at South Valley

  • Elections for Student Body Officers are scheduled to be held the beginning of the 2020/2021 school year.
  • Yearbooks have been received!  If you ordered and paid for a yearbook please come by the school between the office hours of 8 am - 1 pm to pick it up. Due to the continued restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, unfortunately we will not have a yearbook signing day.
  • The first day of school is Tuesday, August 25. Registration letters have been mailed.  We are doing online registration this year.  Every student needs to register online, even if you are doing virtual or are a returning student. If you did not receive a letter explaining registration, please call the office at 801-565-7592.  Around August 14 we will call and make appointments for students who have not attended South Valley before to come and see the school and meet their teacher.  For returning students, you will just come the first day of school.

 Reopening of the 2020/2021 School Year 

The Jordan School District Board of Education has approved the plan for reopening schools.  See the plan by clicking here.

To see South Valley's Processes and Procedures for school reopening please click here.

The JSD tentative plan was approved and includes the following changes:

  • Students will start school one week later than originally scheduled. We will begin on Tuesday, August 25.  Please see the updated calendar here: Revised 2020-2021 School Calendars 

  • The first day of work for employees has not changed. The first teacher contract day is August 10. This means teachers will have five additional days of preparation before students return. 

  • Students can request virtual, online learning each quarter instead of each semester. The first quarter will end on October 16.

Student safety and options for families are among the Board’s highest priorities as we establish a plan for reopening schools. To that end, we are proud to announce the opportunity for all students in Jordan School District to attend school in a virtual, online format from home. This option is available for students in every grade and will involve daily interaction with teachers.

We invite you to click here to watch the video link which explains what virtual online learning would look like for your student.

If you would like your child to enroll in virtual learning for the 2020-21 school year, please contact Rita.

If you want more information about this upcoming school year please see the Jordan District Moving Forward page at

If you have further questions, or would like to discuss specific issues regarding your student, please email our Principal, Rita Bouillon at
