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

Digital citizenship education should be a community effort, and the impact can be more powerful when students have multiple trusted adults they can discuss issues with. One issue that’s becoming increasingly important both in and out of the classroom revolves around the following question, “How do we keep children and young people safe online while ensuring their technology use is positive and purposeful?” With Parent/Teacher conferences fast approaching this week we thought it would be a good time to share with you this post, 10 Internet Safety Tips for Parents (How to Help Your Child to be Safe Online) (Links to an external site.). This post offers 10 tips for parents looking to help their child navigate their digital lives. Check out the poster below!
