School Make-up Day-- Friday, February 15th

Posted in News & Announcements

The Canyons School Board reported that there WILL BE school on Friday, 2/15 to make up for the snow day we had this week. Please plan accordingly. It will be a short day schedule, same schedule as every Friday (8:15 AM - 1:15 PM).Make up Snow day
From Canyons District Facebook Page:
To make up for the instructional time lost due to Wednesday’s snow day, a make-up school day has been scheduled for Friday, Feb. 15. The date was chosen as a more prudent and less disruptive alternative to holding the make-up day on Presidents Day or during Spring Recess, the two options that are stipulated by the District’s Board-approved calendar guidelines. The Canyons Board of Education’s decision was done under a one-time suspension of those stipulations during a meeting of the Board on Thursday scheduled specifically for this purpose. “The Board felt it was important to preserve quality instruction time, and Friday, Feb. 15 was the best option. We also recognize that many employees and families have already booked vacation and travel plans over the federal holiday, which we observe as a District,” says Canyons Board President Nancy Tingey. Friday, Feb. 15 was previously a no-school day for students but is a contract day for school employees, which means they are already scheduled to be at work. All Canyons District schools will now hold school on Feb. 15 according to their normal Friday schedules. Buses will also be operating that day.

Middle schools will still maintain a late-start and elementary schools will have an early-out schedule. Questions? Send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes the get the school ready for each day? I just wanted to let you all know that Bruce was here at 3 AM on February 6th, the snow day, and spent 7 hours plowing snow. He then returned that same evening and worked several more hours. Then he was here at 3:30 AM on February 7th and spent another 3+ hours doing snow removal. In all, he spent over 12 hours removing 14” of snow and putting down ice melt. We have the BEST Custodian in the World!
