COVID-19 Action Plan and Updates

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.

School Closure Information


In light of the Governor’s and State Superintendent’s recent declarations, I wanted to send our families an update so you would know what to expect for your middle school students in the coming weeks.

School is closed from Monday, March 16th through Friday, March 27th. The state has granted a waiver for these days; they will not have to be made up. At the end of the two weeks, the state will re-evaluate and determine what our next steps will be. 

The following information will guide us through the next two weeks.

  • Monday and Tuesday, March 16th and 17th—Office Hours 8-3
    • Students may check into the main office to go to lockers to obtain personal belongings.
    • Teachers will be unavailable as they will be planning and working with their departments to prepare curriculum. 
  • On Wednesday, March 18th—Office Hours 8-3
    • An email will be sent to families on Wednesday morning with student learning information.  A hard copy will be available in the main office for students who cannot access it online.
    • Student learning opportunities will be made available online or as a hard copy for students who cannot access it online
    • Hard copies can be picked up in the Main Office during office hours for students who cannot access it online.  
  • Thursdays, March 19-Friday March 27—Office Hours 8-3
    • Teachers, Administrators, and Staff will be working in teams and on school items as well as answering emails and responding to phone calls or messages.
  • The grading term (3rd Quarter) will be extended until after our return to school.  We do not have the details of this at this time.  Information on Wednesday will give guidance on completing currently missing work.

All sporting events, tryouts, practices, and performances have been canceled for at least two weeks.  All night school and community education classes have also been canceled.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the school. We know that this situation is not ideal, and we appreciate your flexibility and concern for our school community.  I will continue to update you as we receive more information.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

The 2020 Census is Coming — Make Sure You’re Counted

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.
