Our Response & Important Information

Utah schools are making rapid and unprecedented changes as our community responds to COVID-19. Gifted Music School's leadership team is closely monitoring and following guidelines from the statewide coronavirus taskforce and other local government and health agencies.

This year’s musical and educational offerings at Gifted Music School will begin and remain fully remote until the school’s administration determines it is safe to resume on-campus instruction. When plans and a timeline for returning to campus become available, the school will email those instructions to you and post all correspondence, information, and resources on our website.

As our school grapples with this fast-changing situation, we are deeply grateful for the patience, flexibility, and resilience that our community continues to demonstrate. We recognize and share your disappointment in missing some of the benefits of in-person instruction and the postponements or cancellations of highly-anticipated events. While our team is making every effort to minimize these disruptions and facilitate continuity in our day-to-day operations, we will continue to observe the guidance of officials and agencies who have expertise in this matter. Our number one priority is, and must always be, the health and safety of our community members.
