Elementary Students Invited to Reconsider Learning Options, Requests Accepted through Feb. 14

With the end of the second term approaching, we are again providing students a chance to revisit their learning options.

The elementary-school window for submitting end-of-grading-period change requests is Sunday, Feb. 7 through Sunday, Feb. 14. Those wanting to shift from in-person to one of two remote learning options available, or from remote learning to in-person instruction, will need to complete a change-request form by Feb. 14. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any late requests.

Learning option changes will take effect with the start of the third term on Monday, March 8. No action is required of families who wish to stay with their chosen path.

Throughout the pandemic, we have worked to provide families with in-person and remote learning options so they can choose what works best for them given their educational needs and health considerations. This second change-request period is consistent with that commitment.

The three learning options available are the same as described at the beginning of the year: In-Person Instruction; Online Instruction; or Parent-Guided, District-Supported At Home Instruction. An explanation of those options can be found at canyonsdistrict.org.

Change requests will be submitted using the same Skyward Family Access portal families used to register for school at the beginning of the year. Families simply log in to Skyward, click on the “online forms” button, select “Term 2 Change-Request Form,” and follow the prompts. Please watch this tutorial for more information, or call the Main Office should you need any assistance.

Questions? Please contact our school’s Main Office.

Ready for ‘Big Kid’ School? • Time to get a jump on planning for kindergarten

The start of the 2021-2022 school year might seem like it’s light-years away, but when it comes to making arrangements for kindergarteners to attend school, the time to start planning is now. While students who are 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2021 won’t be heading to class until late next summer, there are several decisions parents and guardians will need to make before then — and it’s better to start sooner than later.

“Parents need to think about which option they want, the half-day option that we offer, or the Supplemental Hours of Kindergarten Instruction program we offer as well,” said Canyons Teacher Specialist Leigh Ann Fisher. “This may determine the school their child attends, because if their boundary school isn’t offering the Supplemental program, then they need to think about, ‘Where am I willing to travel to take my child so that they have that option to have the Supplemental program as well?’”

Starting on Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 10 a.m., Canyons District will begin accepting online applications for its Supplemental Hours of Kindergarten Instruction program for the 2021-2022 school year. Computers are available at Canyons schools for families who do not have Internet connectivity at home. The opt-in, tuition-based program is offered at schools based on community interest and available space in the building. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
