Looking to Change Learning Options? Requests Accepted through March 10

With COVID-19 cases on the decline in Utah and throughout the country, we know some

of our remote students are considering returning to in-person instruction.

Now, through March 10, is the time for middle school families to submit those requests. 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 Wednesday, March 10. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any late requests.

Learning option changes will take effect with the start of the fourth quarter on Monday, March 22. 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 third 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.

An email with detailed instructions for submitting change requests is forthcoming from the school. Questions? Please contact our school’s Main Office.

Thank a Teacher: CSD Now Taking Nominations for 2021 Teacher of the Year

To be a teacher during a pandemic is to be on the front lines of the battle to safeguard the health and heart of the future. In this unprecedented era of COVID-19 — marked by hours of Google Meets, constant updates to Canvas pages, strained voices to be heard from behind a mask, and the application hand-sanitizer dozens of times a day — has heightened the importance of daily high-quality instruction by a highly-qualified teacher.  

Now more than ever, the Canyons Board of Education and Administration are committed to honoring the many ways educators are touching the lives of students even as they maintain a safe physical distance. The COVID-19-related restriction on mass gatherings won’t stop Canyons from announcing and applauding a Teacher of the Year for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Starting today, the Canyons community can submit nominations for a new Teacher of the Year.

Here’s how you can get involved:

  • Access the nomination form
  • Complete the form on why you think your nominee should be recognized. Print and submit the form to your school’s PTA leaders, or, if you are a school employee, to the principal, by March 5. The School Selection Committee will consider nominees forwarded by the PTA and employees.
  • Watch for social media posts featuring the March 29-April 2 Teacher of the Year surprise announcement at your child’s school.
  • Watch the Tuesday, April 20 ceremony to hear which CSD teacher was selected for their commitment, innovation, and leadership.
