School Resumes after Winter Break on Monday, January 4

We are so excited to see you back at school on Monday, January 4, 2021!

Remember:

  • Students should arrive at school on time.
  • Students can arrive on campus at 8:00 AM for breakfast. Supervision is provided in the cafeteria. Breakfast is available from 8:00-8:20am.
  • If they are not eating breakfast, do not send children to school earlier than 8:10 AM as that is when outside supervision begins. All students will line up in their assigned area by grade level until the welcome bell rings at 8:25 AM. School instruction begins promptly at 8:25 AM.

Happy New Year!

Repaired Pipe Means School Resumes Tuesday at Midvale Middle, Midvale and Copperview Elementary Schools

Public-works crews from Midvale City have repaired the broken pipe that had restricted the flow of water to Midvale Middle and Midvale and Copperview elementary schools on Monday, Dec. 14. 

As a result, school for students registered for in-person learning will resume on Tuesday, Dec. 15. School will operate on the regular schedule at the three schools that were released early on Monday. 

In any other year, the District would have ordered bottled water and portable toilets so that classes could continue at the schools. However, given that an estimated time on the repairs was unknown as of Monday morning, CSD’s Administration made the decision to release the affected schools at 11:15 a.m.

One of the major concerns was that students could not wash their hands. Hygiene is an important part of CSD’s efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19. 

Canyons District appreciates the patience and understanding of families as school staff worked to release children in an orderly manner.

Parents were notified Tuesday night that school will resume on regular schedules on Tuesday morning. 

Canyons School District Posts New ‘Snow Day’ Guidelines

Important message about new ‘snow day’ guidelines

This is an important message to notify all Canyons District families that the Canyons Board of Education has chosen to take advantage of an option allowed by the Utah State Board of Education to treat “snow days” as remote-learning days. The new guidelines are in effect for the 2020-2021 school year to be reviewed by the Board and Administration for possible continued adoption. This won’t change how the District gauges the severity of weather and road conditions. Snow days are rare in Utah, and unless extreme weather creates unsafe traveling conditions, schools operating under the Canyons District umbrella will remain open for in-person instruction on scheduled school days. But in the event we experience severe weather, the remote-learning alternative to canceling classes benefits both students, by maintaining continuity of instruction, and families, by alleviating the need to adjust their schedules to accommodate make-up days, which can disrupt holiday travel and summer plans. Please see canyonsdistrict.org for more details about how Canyons will decide if weather and road conditions warrant switching to virtual instruction, and how will families be notified. If you have questions, please call 801-826-5000 or the Main Office of your child’s school (801-826-8725).

Preparing for emergency remote-learning days:

  • If inclement weather is in the forecast, teachers will work with students to make sure they have the materials and assignments they need to learn from home. The groundwork for a pivot from in-person to online learning has been laid during the pandemic.
  • On remote-learning days, elementary students will work independently with a parent or guardian to complete the assignments and learning expectations communicated each week by their teacher using instructional packets or by logging in to CSD’s Canvas learning portal.
  • Middle and high school students will log in to the Canvas dashboard for each of their classes and work their way through their regular course schedules.
  • Teachers will be available on remote-learning days via email and connect with students through Canvas and Zoom or Google Meet.
  • Extracurricular activities — sporting events and practices, afterschool tutoring and theatrical rehearsals and performances — will be canceled unless road conditions improve enough to be able to safely hold the activity.
  • It’s important, each year, for families to log in to Skyward Family Access to update their contact information and settings. New this year: Parents can sign up to receive text messages in addition to emails and phone calls. For help updating Skyward settings, please call 801-826-5544.

Mensaje importante sobre las nuevas pautas sobre “días de nieve”

Este es un mensaje importante para notificar a todas las familias del Distrito de Canyons que la Junta de Educación de Canyons ha elegido aprovechar una opción permitida por la Junta de Educación del Estado de Utah para tratar los “días de nieve” como días de aprendizaje remoto. Las nuevas pautas están vigentes para el año escolar 2020-2021 y serán revisadas por la Junta y la Administración para su posible adopción continua. Esto no cambiará la forma en que el Distrito mide la severidad del clima y las condiciones de la carretera. Los días de nieve son raros en Utah y, a menos que el clima extremo cree condiciones de viaje inseguras, las escuelas que operan bajo el paraguas del Distrito de Canyons permanecerán abiertas para instrucción en persona en los días escolares programados. Pero en el caso de que experimentemos un clima severo, la alternativa de aprendizaje remoto a la cancelación de clases beneficia tanto a los estudiantes, al mantener la continuidad de la instrucción, como a las familias, al aliviar la necesidad de ajustar sus horarios para adaptarse a los días de recuperación, que pueden interrumpir los viajes de vacaciones y planes de verano. Visite canyonsdistrict.org para obtener más detalles sobre cómo Canyons decidirá si el clima y las condiciones de la carretera justifican el cambio a la instrucción virtual, y cómo se notificará a las familias. Si tiene preguntas, llame al 801-826-5000 o la oficina principal de la escuela de su hijo/a (801-826-8725).

Preparación para los días de aprendizaje remoto de emergencia:

  • Si se pronostica un clima inclemente, los maestros trabajarán con los estudiantes para asegurarse de que tengan los materiales y las tareas que necesitan para aprender desde casa. Durante la pandemia se trabajo en un plan preparatorio con las bases para un cambio del aprendizaje en persona al aprendizaje en línea.
  • En los días de aprendizaje remoto, los estudiantes de primaria trabajarán de forma independiente con un padre o tutor para completar las tareas y las expectativas de aprendizaje comunicadas cada semana por su maestro utilizando paquetes de instrucción o iniciando sesión en el portal de aprendizaje CANVAS de CSD.
  • Los estudiantes de intermedia y secundaria  iniciarán sesión en el panel de Canvas para cada una de sus clases y trabajarán en sus horarios regulares de cursos.
  • Los maestros estarán disponibles en los días de aprendizaje remoto por correo electrónico y se conectarán con los estudiantes a través de Canvas y Zoom o Google Meet.
  • Las actividades extracurriculares (eventos y prácticas deportivas, tutoría después de clases y ensayos y representaciones teatrales) se cancelarán a menos que las condiciones de la carretera mejoren lo suficiente como para poder realizar la actividad de manera segura.
  • Es importante, cada año, que las familias inicien sesión en Skyward Family Access para actualizar su información de contacto y su configuración. Nuevo este año: los padres pueden inscribirse para recibir mensajes de texto además de correos electrónicos y llamadas telefónicas. Para obtener ayuda para actualizar la configuración de Skyward, llame al 801-826-5544.
