Start of school delayed until Aug. 24 in response to teacher, community concerns

The first day of school in Canyons District this fall has been pushed back one week. 

By making a slight change to the academic calendar for the 2020-2021 school year, members of the Canyons Board of Education decided Tuesday to start school on Monday, Aug. 24 instead of Monday, Aug. 17.

The decision was made during a regular meeting of the Board of Education held at the Canyons District Offices, 9361 S. 300 East. 

“The change to the academic calendar was made after much reflection, review, and thoughtful input from parents, teachers and students,” said Nancy Tingey, President of the Canyons Board of Education. “The slight postponement of the start of the school year honors requests from our hard-working teachers while also minimizing disruption to families’ schedules.”

Grand Opening!

It’s a different kind of year, which calls for a different kind of ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of Midvalley Elementary.

The Jr. Huskies have planned two ways for families, neighbors, teachers and staff to herald the start of a new school year in a new school building:

  • On Tuesday, Aug. 11 at 6:30 p.m., the community is invited to hop in their cars and trucks and take part in a rolling back-to-school parade through the school’s new bus drop-off. Students and parents will get a chance to wave hello to their teachers from the safe distance of their vehicles, pick up a commemorative brick from the old school building, and tune their radios to 91.7 FM for some foot-tapping music and announcements.
  • Prior to the parade, at 6 p.m., the Canyons Board of Education will host a virtual ribbon cutting featuring a video tour of the building to be broadcast live, and made available for later viewing, on CSD’s YouTube channel.

“Our faculty and staff miss the students dearly and are really looking forward to this,” says Principal Tamra Baker. “We can’t wait to see the looks on the students’ faces when they see the new building.”

Mask Up, Canyons! We all Have a Role to Play in Defeating COVID-19

Stand united, stay strong and activate your mask superpower! Not all superheroes wear capes, some wear masks — and as we start the 2020-2021 school year, all Canyons District students, employees, parents and patrons will have a role to play in defeating the common foe of COVID-19.

Canyons District schools and facilities are adhering to Utah Gov. Gary Herbert’s order requiring the use of face coverings in K-12 schools. It is expected that every student and employee in a school facility or on a school bus will wear a face covering — a must-have item for families to add to their back-to-school shopping lists.
