Two PCHS Students Selected to Perform at Carnegie Hall

PARK CITY, UT (January 27, 2022) – Two Park City High School students were selected to sing at Carnegie Hall for the WorldStrides Honors Performance Series. 

Ali Kennedy, PCHS Senior, and Justin Zink, PCHS Sophomore, were nominated last year by the former PCHS choir director, Christin Abbott. The Honors Performance Series only invites 500 students of the nearly 10,000 student applications worldwide. 

Ali and Justin will join fellow student performers from the United States, Australia, Bermuda, China, Guam, and South Korea for a special performance at the world-famous Carnegie Hall, a venue that marks the pinnacle of musical achievement.

The finalists will come together in New York City for five days in February. They will have the opportunity to learn from world-renowned conductors, work with other finalists, and get a taste of New York City. Two performances, an Honors Instrumental Performance and Honors Choral Performance will take place Saturday, February 5 and Sunday, February 6 respectively, and are open to the public. 

“After having performances worldwide impacted for over a year, we are excited to be returning to the stage at Carnegie Hall,” said Marion Gomez, Program Director for the Honors Performance Series. “Being selected to the Honors Performance Series is something each finalist should be extremely proud of accomplishing.”  

According to Eva Marble, PCHS choir and orchestra director, the program brings students together from around the world to collaborate. 

“I am proud of Ali and Justin for putting in the work outside of class for this program, ” said Marble. “They will have the opportunity to work with master conductors and will spend most of their time in New York rehearsing for their performance on Sunday evening.  Ali and Justin have been preparing for their performance for months. They have spent countless hours learning their music and training their voices to sing with the best of the best next week.” 

The Honors Performance Series was established to feature talented student musicians in a once-in-a-lifetime performance on stage at Carnegie Hall. This opportunity is made possible by support and nominations from music educators across the world.   Learn more by visiting and

Utah Legislature Terminates Summit County Mask Mandate

PARK CITY, UT (January 21, 2021) —  The mask mandate in Summit County has been terminated after the Utah House voted Friday in favor of the SJR003 resolution passed earlier this week by the Senate.

Per the Summit County Health Department Director, Dr. Phil Bondurant, “The ongoing Omicron surge has impacted every aspect of our lives at home, at work, in our schools and our businesses… Our advisory message has not changed because the best practices have not changed: stay home if you are sick…and wear a mask in public indoor spaces to protect the health of others.” 

Our community’s schools adhere to the best practice guidance provided by the CDC/UDOH and will continue the layered mitigation strategies in place that include: increased sanitization of frequently touched surfaces, airscrubbers, misting overnight, increased airflow with frequent filter changes, reasserting that those who are feeling ill or symptomatic remain at home for adequate quarantine periods, localized contact tracing and exposure notices, voluntary student/staff testing at Eccles Lobby from 7:15-9:15 AM on school days, encourage frequent handwashing and physical distance as we continue to navigate and mitigate impacts of COVID19 as a community.

PCSD is committed to the health and well-being of all our students, teachers, staff and families. Thank you for your understanding and support as we traverse this ever-changing situation. As a school district we remain focused on the whole child to provide an environment that keeps our students safe, supported, engaged, challenged, and healthy.

News from PCSD-BOE

by Erin Grady, BOE President

The Park City School District Board of Education will meet twice this month as we continue to address the impacts of COVID19 and the most current Omicron variant which currently has a high transmission rate community-wide. We continue to listen, learn, and navigate this challenging time together in support of our students, our staff, and our community.

At the conclusion of the regular meeting this evening, we learned that the Utah Senate had passed a resolution (SJR-3) 22-5 that would end the local Summit County and Salt Lake County mask mandates. That resolution has been forwarded to the House of Representatives for their consideration. On Wednesday, January 19, 2022 will begin the same way that today’s school day did – with full implementation and enforcement of the current Public Health Order of Constraint – a full county-wide mask mandate – until we hear otherwise.

In the event the mandate is terminated by Utah legislators, the CDC and the UDOH has continued its strong recommendations that all within the school environment wear face coverings for the foreseeable future. We continue to adjust and modify as the guidelines adapt.

During the regular Board of Education meeting, we heard an update from CAO, Dr. Amy Hunt, on the current work that is ongoing with the 5-year instructional strategic plan. It is exciting to hear the positive results that even some small, intentional shifts make in student outcomes and academic attainment. We are proud of the ongoing work of our educators, our staff, and our administrative team. Thank you.

The meeting also included an update on the Master Facility Plan and our work to meet/exceed minimum code requirements in “future ready” planning and thinking about school sites, energy consumption and a net zero goal, as well as escalating costs due to supply chain issues. And, we approved a Basin Rec easement at Trailside for a walking pathway near the field entrance.

The Board of Education has elected to host a work session on Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at 10:00 A.M. to continue its dialogue on ways to best support our educators and staff, consideration of budget adjustments as necessary to bolster substitute force, grant writing efforts to secure reimbursement funding for those who have missed school due to COVID, and future staffing needs.

We appreciate ongoing partnership and support of our parents and families, our educators and staff as well as the community. We are all in this together.
