It was a big week here at Canyon View

Last week was a big week at Canyon View! We had the highest attendance of elementary schools in the district with 76% on Presidents Day Monday (our Snow Day makeup day) and Fox 13 visited us to report.

We then ended the week with our 3rd – 5th grade Spelling Bee. All of our contestants did an impressive job with Cameron Brown taking first place with the word “anagrams” and Brennan Dance taking second place with the word “squadron”. They will represent Canyon View in the Northern Utah Spelling Bee on March 7 as contenders for the National Spelling Bee in Washington D.C. Best of luck, gentlemen. We know you will represent us well!

Students will dismiss THIS THURSDAY at 1:40 PM to provide teachers more time to meet with parents for Parent Teacher Conferences. There is also NO SCHOOL Friday due to teachers having twelve hour days with parents and students on Wednesday and Thursday.

Fifth-grade students and their parents invited to maturation program

UPDATE • THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED 

As a preventive measure, in alignment with recommendations by health authorities who are working to control the spread of COVID-19, we have postponed all fifth-grade Maturation Programs. We hope to be able to reschedule these events or arrange to videotape the presentations and share it with parents through a password-protected link. Once we’ve finalized our contingency plans, we’ll send an email with further instructions to all fifth-grade families.

It’s difficult to know who has more trepidation about discussing health and the maturation process, pre-teens or their parents. But while growing up can be hard, talking about it needn’t be. To help you rock “the talk,” Canyons School District has developed an informational maturation program  for fifth-grade students and their parents. Presentations conducted by the professional speaker Carrie Ann Kemp have been scheduled through the month of March. All parents are encouraged to attend these free events with their children, and to choose which date best fits their schedules, so that they can continue the discussion in their homes. Please follow this link for event locations and times.

How Sick is Too Sick for School?

It’s like clockwork. With the arrival of cold weather come winter colds and sniffles, posing the inevitable quandary for parents: How sick is too sick to send your child to school? Sometimes, it’s obvious. If your child is feverish and shaking or vomiting, he or she is probably in no condition to be learning. But what about a nagging cough or sore throat? Canyons District encourages school employees and students to stay home when:

 -They are not well enough or seem too run down to participate in class.
 -Their cold symptoms are accompanied by a fever of 101 F or higher.
– They have a contagious illness, such as the flu or pinkeye/ conjunctivitis (crusty and red eyes with yellow or green discharge).  -They have vomited two or more times in a 24-hour period, or have diarrhea.
-They have been diagnosed with a bacterial infection, such as bronchitis or strep throat. In such cases, keep a child home for 24 hours after starting antibiotics. 

 

What Do Schools Do to Prevent the Spread of Disease?

Canyons District has about 5.8 million square feet of space to keep cleaned, which is accomplished each day with special attention paid to touchpoints, or highly-trafficked areas with which students come into direct contact, such as door knobs, computer keyboards, and drinking fountains. Deep-cleaning to combat specific illnesses entails using specialized chemicals and tools, such as electrostatic sprayers, which can cover an entire area with a bug-fighting coating of disinfectant. Parents can help by reminding children of the importance of good personal hygiene. The best way to stop the spread of disease is to thoroughly wash hands after using the restroom and before preparing or eating meals.

 

Come Volunteer! Girls on the Run

We need enthusiastic, dedicated and positive volunteers who are committed to empowering girls with valuable life lessons. Coaches are parents, teachers, school administrators, college students and other community members who are committed to developing and celebrating our girls. Our girls will be running this spring (March 26 – May 28) on Fridays from 1:45 – 3:45 PM.
