Jordan School District is hosting a drive-by Family Resource Fair May 11 at West Jordan Middle School (7550 South Redwood Road in West Jordan) and May 13 at Copper Mountain Middle School (12106 South Anthem Park Blvd. in Herriman). It should take less than 30 minutes to drive through the various stations to collect information packets, snacks and games for the kids.

“The Language and Culture Services department is excited to get this information to parents before the summer so that they have access to it,” district LCS Outreach Specialist Toni Brown said. “We have a lot of language resources for families that aren't being utilized to their full potential, as well as lots of social and emotional resources that kids will benefit from right now. We're finding that without knowing who to call or where to go, families don't end up finding out about these resources. So we're trying to put it all together and get the word out.”
