Eagle Scout-Brady Hunter

Posted in News & Announcements

An Eagle Scout candidate, Brady Hunter, has led a project to collect coats, hats, and gloves for any Junior Husky who might need to be wrapped up in warmth this winter. Today, he delivered three large boxes of potential warm "hugs" for the children in our school. With colder weather ahead, we are grateful we can support any family in our school who would be able to use these resources. Please contact Mrs. Gallman at the school, if you would like some Midvalley "cuddles" to keep your fingers and noggins warm! Thank you, Brady!

Snow Day Guidelines

Posted in News & Announcements

If the forecast holds, a cold front is expected to roll into Salt Lake this weekend accompanied by rain, and possibly snow. To the end of preparing our community for winter, here is a guide to how Canyons District and Midvalley Elementary will communicate information about school cancellations or delayed starts. 

Please remember: Unless extreme weather creates unsound traveling conditions, schools operating under the Canyons District umbrella will remain open on scheduled school days.

Why keep schools open during snowstorms?
Our 34,000 students count on us to deliver a quality education in a safe, welcoming environment. Unscheduled school closures disrupt learning and place a burden on parents who work full time and can’t easily be home to supervise their children. Neighborhood schools also are a primary source of breakfast and lunch for many of our students. 

What if I’d prefer to keep my child home? 
While school-closure decisions will be made in the best interest of a school community, the District respects the rights of parents and guardians to decide what’s best for children in their care. 

How will I know if school is canceled or delayed?
Canyons District has established the following communications policies in the event of a school closure:

Announcements and information: Canyons District will employ its website, the Skylert emergency-communication system, and Facebook and Twitter (@canyonsdistrict) to alert parents about school closures. Parents and employees should listen to Wasatch Front radio and television stations for school-closure information.

What we will tell you: The District will communicate one of three messages: 1) Day and date a school is closed; 2) Day and date a school is starting late; 3) and day and date schools will be dismissed.

Telephones: Families are encouraged to call the District Office at 801-826-5000  for the latest decisions on school closures due to inclement weather. Please be patient, as the District Office may experience a high volume of phone calls on these days. Parents also may call their child's school.  

How we decide: School closures will be announced when authorized by the Canyons Superintendent of Schools or his designee after consulting with senior staff members. The National Weather Service and other state, county and city agencies also may be consulted.

Closures are for one day only: All announcements are for one day only. No announcement means schools will be open and operate as usual.

Emergency plans: Families are encouraged to establish an emergency plan for their children in the event that schools are closed, have a delayed start or dismissed early. Parents are urged to instruct their children where to go or what to do if a parent is not at home.
