Instruction and Supports

Mohonasen is creating plans to maximize grades K-5 daily, on site, instruction. For students who attend Draper Middle School or Mohonasen High School (Grades 6-12) the district is planning for an alternate/rotating day model with one-third to one-half of the students coming to school on any given day. Students in self-contained, special education programs will be on site daily when school is in session.

School Schedules

The district’s official start date may be shifted if there is a need to use additional days to orient and train teachers and staff prior to school starting.

Nutrition/Food Services

Breakfast and lunch will look different both in terms of location and in terms of serving.

Health & Safety
