Duchesne County School District (DCSD) wishes to inform its public that our community schools are safe.
DCSD has been made aware of a generic, hoax email claiming there are explosives inside of every school. No specific school or district name was mentioned in the email. Other school districts in Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming have received the same email in the past 24 hours.
Officials of DCSD have been in contact with local law enforcement who will be vigilant throughout the school day. Again, at this point, DCSD has not received the hoax email or any information of its schools experiencing any reports of threats. All other known incidents in other district locations have been deemed non-credible following investigations.
Duchesne County School District will be destroying confidential special
education records of students born in the year of 1996. In accordance with federal
statutes, each student’s records may be considered “no longer needed to provide
educational services” and may be destroyed after the student turns 27 years old. Unless
otherwise requested by parents, guardians, or former students of legal age, special
education records, which meet the prescribed requirements, will be destroyed after
January 5, 2024.
Several reasons exist for destroying these records. Most obvious is the storage
problem that would be created by keeping such bulky records indefinitely. Another
reason is the need to maintain confidentiality when continued existence of the outdated
records serves little or no logical purpose. Finally, even for persons with legitimate
interests in the student’s status, such outdated records may be potentially misleading
when considering current functioning.
Parents, guardians, and former students of legal age may request copies of any
special education records on file. Anyone with questions regarding this policy and its
implementation may contact Janalee Goodrich at 725-4500
Open Enrollment begins December 1, 2023 for students living outside of Duchesne County

General Information Announcement–Duchesne County School District
FEMA, in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) this fall, According to a FEMA press release found on its official website.
The national test will consist of two portions, testing WEA and EAS capabilities. Both tests will begin at approximately 12:20 p.m. MT on Wednesday, Oct. 4.
The WEA portion of the test will be directed to all consumer cell phones. This is only a test with the purpose of ensuring that systems continue to be an effective means of warning the public about emergencies, particularly those on the national level.
Schools will attempt to keep the interruption at a minimum while maintaining a focus on engagement and learning.
KPES Back Pick up Line: Parents/Guardians due to not having a crosswalk in back for pick up, we ask that you remain in your vehicle picking and dropping off your students. If you want to park and get your student you need to go to the front doors of the school. I know it may be an inconvience but we want to keep your students safe.
Parents and Guardians,
Here is a video going over the new DCSD app. We are still working on the implementation of classes throughout the district. Please be patient with us, we will notify you when we are ready.
