To make up for the instructional time lost due to the weather-related cancellation of school on Monday, Feb. 3, 2020, a make-up day will be held on Presidents Day.
All Canyons District schools will now hold school on Feb. 17 on their usual Monday schedules. Buses also will be operating that day.
The Presidents Day holiday was previously set aside by the District’s Calendar Committee as the designated make-up day for emergency school closures for the 2019-2020 school year. Under Utah law, public schools must conduct school for at least 990 instructional hours over a minimum of 180 days each academic year, and recover any days lost due to inclement weather. Districts are expected to build a recovery day into their calendars so as to provide families and employees advance notice of the possible need and timing for a make-up day.
Today, on Monday, Feb. 3, extreme weather and dangerous road conditions have forced the cancellation of school in Canyons District. All schools and District Offices will be closed for the day. This announcement of the closure of schools and District Offices is for one day only. Additional information will be sent to the community if the closure extends to Tuesday. If you have questions, please refer to our website, canyonsdistrict.org. Thank you. Please stay safe.
