To continue momentum in flattening the COVID-19 curve, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and state education officials today announced the “soft closure” of schools will last through the end of the school year. Previously, it was anticipated Utah schools would re-open on May 1. Canyons remains committed to providing educational services and meals to students through the length of the soft closure, which now extends through Friday, May 29. Free grab-and-go sack lunches and breakfasts will still be available for curbside pick-up at 15 locations, and teachers will continue to support and guide students as they participate in distance learning. In line with health guidelines, Canyons teachers are still encouraged to work from home and a limited number of Canyons District employees will be at school buildings and the Canyons District Office.
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.
