Message for Parents, Students, and Staff at Copper Hills High School
This is an important message from Copper Hills High for all parents, students and staff members:
We have had three reported cases of Whooping Cough in the past weeks. One was two weeks ago the other two were over the Thanksgiving break. It is very good that we were not together during that time. This does cut down the possible spread of infection for our student body.
We have been asked by the Utah State Health Department to send out the attached letter of warning. Please use this information for the health and safety of your family members.
We will continue to monitor cases of this illness as they are reported to us. We are in contact with the District Nurse and Health Department with this information. We will let you know if there are further precautions that need to be taken.
Thank you for your time.

Copper Hills Student Featured in National 4H Toolkit
Jessica Ivie, one of our most accomplished CTE Seniors, has had a national article written about her. She is involved in DECA, FBLA, and 4H as an officer. Jessica has been honored with dozens of awards and scholarships; she is also one of five Seniors selected by the Utah State Board of Education for the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program. Three years ago, Jessica was a shy, and reserved Sophomore who took an Entrepreneurship class, and then caught fire. She is the product of the many benefits of the Jordan School District’s CTE Program, and Copper Hills High School. Jessica is a perfect example of what’s right with the American educational system, and why we are all involved in the process. Click on the link below to see the article.

Emergency and Reunification Video
In an effort to keep you informed and educated on our plans in the event of an emergency at school, we are asking you to please watch the video at the link below.
In some emergency situations, your child may be transported from school to an evacuation site off campus. If that happens, you need to know how to safely and calmly reunite with your child, closely following directions established by the District, local police and firefighters. A safe and controlled reunification is essential in any evacuation. This video explains the REUNIFICATION procedure you will be asked to follow.
Thanks for supporting Jordan School District and the safety of our students.
