Introduction – Real Talk on School Safety
School safety has always been a topic of discussion — and action — in the Canyons School District. Some measures are obvious, such as security cameras, emergency preparedness drills that schools practice throughout the year and vestibules that require visitors to check-in at the Main Office before entering schools. But much of what we do is invisible. From the Internet filters we use to safeguard students from accessing inappropriate online content to the consistent rules and expectations we enforce to keep our classrooms free from bullying, harassment and discrimination, Canyons District is building safe schools from the inside out. We invite families to become familiar with our safety protocols and join us on this mission to Think Safe toward maintaining schools that are welcoming, secure, and prepared.

Emergency Contacts and Contact Information
It is very important that teachers and staff have your current home, cell, and/or work phone numbers and at least two alternative emergency phone numbers of family, friends or neighbors who will take responsibility for your child if we cannot reach you. Students will only be released to parents/guardians and emergency contacts. Please update information including phone numbers and address as they change via Skyward Family Access.
In the event of inclement/severe weather, the decision to close school will be announced through television, Skylerts, and the district webpage. Recess “in-days” will be determined by the principal or designee based on weather conditions and air quality. Student dress should always reflect the weather conditions. If appropriate attire cannot be attained by the family, please speak with the principal for help.
Injury at School
If your child is injured seriously at school, we will contact you immediately. If we cannot reach you, we will use the emergency contact information you have provided. If we cannot reach you or your emergency contacts, we are authorized to seek medical help for your child, and may call 911 for support.
