Corner Canyon Chargers Return Nov. 30 to On-Campus Learning

Corner Canyon High will return to in-person learning on Monday, Nov. 30. 

After the Thanksgiving Recess, Corner Canyon Chargers who are registered for in-person classes will attend school on campus Monday through Thursday with Fridays set aside for independent study and teacher preparation. 

Corner Canyon High had recently pivoted again to online learning for all students because of rising numbers of COVID-19 cases associated with the school. Also considered in the decision to pause on-campus classes for two weeks was the increased positive rate in the community surrounding the school.

The two-week online-learning schedule has allowed time to greatly reduce the number of students and employees who are on isolation or quarantine status.

While the Chargers have been engaged in online learning with Corner Canyons High’s skilled and hard-working teachers, the school has been thoroughly cleaned.

Canyons District continues to ask the community to follow safety precautions, especially over the holiday weekend. Please wear face coverings, wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, and observe physical distancing guidelines in public.

Parents are asked to monitor children daily for symptoms of COVID-19. Please contact a health provider if children begin to exhibit any of the symptoms of the novel coronavirus.  Those symptoms include a fever, cough, fatigue, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or smell, a sore throat, congestion, nausea, or difficulty breathing. 

Questions? Please direct email to communications@canyonsdistrict.org. Parents also can call their child’s school or the District Office at 801-826-5000 during work hours.

Your Bilingualism is Worth Celebrating • Apply for Utah’s Seal of Biliteracy

Each year in December, Canyons School District invites high school juniors and seniors to apply for the Seal of Biliteracy, a designation by the Utah State Office of Education signaling a student’s demonstrated proficiency in English and a world language. This year, the application window opens Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020 and closes Friday, Jan. 22, 2021, and CSD schools are making an extra effort to encourage students to apply.

“The Seal of Biliteracy, created in 2008, is something that colleges have really started paying attention to. More and more employers also are giving preference to hiring job applicants with this designation,” says Michèle Harward in CSD’s Instructional Supports Department. “We suspect, though, that there are bilingual, or even trilingual, students out there who aren’t taking advantage of this opportunity.”

Corner Canyon High School Returns to Virtual Learning Schedule for All Students

All Corner Canyon High students will engage in virtual learning for the next two school weeks. 

The decision to temporarily change the school’s schedule is in response to the rise in numbers of COVID-19 cases associated with CCHS in addition to the positive rates in the community surrounding the Draper campus.

The action was taken Friday, Nov. 13 after consulting with the Salt Lake County Health Department. 

Virtual classes for all Chargers will begin Monday, Nov. 16. On-campus classes are expected to resume on Monday, Nov. 30 — the same day that Alta and Jordan high schools and Indian Hills Middle return to in-person learning.  Alta, Jordan and Indian Hills pivoted to online earlier this week after experiencing increases in novel coronavirus cases associated with the schools. 

On Friday, Nov. 13, when students were engaged in independent learning as part of CSD’s usual schedule that provides Fridays for teachers to plan, collaborate and prepare for the coming week, Corner Canyon faculty and staff prepared to begin teaching virtual classes.

More information about online learning expectations via Canvas will be forthcoming from the school and individual teachers.
