Is Spring Recess still happening as planned? Is the school year being extended to accommodate make-up days? What is Canyons doing to support at-home learning? The dismissal of all 50 CSD schools and programs as a preemptive measure to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 has generated a lot of questions, and it’s important that families know where they can go for timely information they can trust. Canyons District has created a web portal where students, parents and employees can find the latest announcements and developments. Government guidelines are changing rapidly, and we’ll updating our community on a regular basis, so please bookmark this link for future reference. The Canyons Board of Education and Administration wish to express appreciation for the community’s support and efforts and diligence of our employees as we pull together to keep our communities healthy and safe.
Happy Spring…I think!? I don’t know about you but it has been nice to have some sunshine here and there! The weather is certainly keeping us on our toes. I think we are all glad to have the sun and some warmth. And we will be seeing some rain this weekend…
First things first…COVID-19. You should have received an email from the district about this issue. I want to assure you that we have your kids best interest in mind. I am in constant contact with my district supervisor for any updated information on how we should proceed. I will keep you updated as I receive information regarding the virus.
Some of the things we are doing at QH to help spreading germs include: Encouraging kids to wash their hands often and reminding students to avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth as much as possible. Our custodian has a special disinfecting tool that he uses to disinfect shared surfaces throughout the school, including classrooms, the cafeteria and other common areas. As you know, we respect the rights of parents to decide what is best for your children. As parents, you can make the final decisions regarding the health and well-being of your children. If your child is sick or has flu symptoms, they should stay home. As I get more updated information regarding how we should proceed, I will share it with you.
School lunches. Special education grants. Training for teachers and support for families in need. Census results, and the programs and resources tied to them, affect our students every day. A complete headcount of everyone living in the country, the census only comes around once every 10 years, and the time to be counted — and to make sure your community receives its fair share of federal funding for schools — is coming. This month, every person living in Utah will take part in the 2020 Census. It’s possible to respond to the census online, by phone, or by mail starting March 12. It takes only 10 minutes, the information is kept strictly confidential, and if you don’t have access to a computer at home, we can help. Join us for “We Count Week,” March 16-20, and come complete the census at one of four Canyons District-sponsored Open House events. https://www.canyonsdistrict.org/district-news/item/12447-the-2020-census-is-coming-make-sure-you-re-counted
