Canyons District's COVID-19 Action Plan, Updates | Read More >

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 Information on Closure

Wonderful Alta View Parents,

Due to the recent events surrounding COVID-19 and the directives from our Governor and Utah State Board of Education, I wanted to reach out and let you know what to expect over the next two weeks.

School is closed from Monday, March 16th through Friday, March 27th. All regular classes, after-school classes, PTA events, IEP meetings, etc. are canceled or postponed for the next two weeks. 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. 

Monday and Tuesday, March 16th and 17th

  • Teachers and staff members will be working today and tomorrow to put together a Student Home Learning Plan that you can use with your students over the next two weeks. You will be able to access these materials via the internet by Wednesday. Specific details will be sent out via email by Wednesday morning. Those who cannot access the internet can request a hard copy of the Student Home Learning Plan by calling the office at 801-826-7600 on Monday or Tuesday or by dropping by the school during office hours on Wednesday.
  • Office Hours: 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM.
  • Teachers will be unavailable Monday and Tuesday as they will be busy preparing the student learning opportunities and planning how to provide online support to students.
  • Families may come to the school to briefly retrieve personal items between 10:30 AM and 3:00 PM on Monday and Tuesday if needed.

Wednesday, March 18th

  • An email will be sent to families by Wednesday morning with information about the Student Home Learning Plan while school is out. Hard copies of the Student Home Learning Plan will be available in the main office during office hours for students who cannot access it online.
  • Office Hours: 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM.

 Thursday, March 19th through Friday, March 27th

  • Teachers will be providing support to students via email and phone.
  • Office Hours: 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM.

For students who may not have access to lunch while school is not in session, 15 Canyons District schools have been designated to provide meals. Alta View Elementary is not one of the schools, but our students may go to any school on the list to obtain a grab-and-go lunch. Click here for more information.

Please know how much we will miss your students during the next couple of weeks. We will do our best to provide support remotely. Please call our office if you have any questions at 801-826-7600 or reach out to your child’s teacher via email. Stay safe.

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.
