Canyons District's COVID-19 Action Plan, Updates | Read More >

A Message from Superintendent Dr. Rick L. Robins

October is here, which is a welcome relief as we look to enjoy a much-needed break over Fall Recess. It’s hard to believe we’re a quarter of the way through the school year — a year that has tested us in ways we could have only imagined. 

We are learning more and more about the best ways to address fears caused by COVID as well as address our students’ academic needs and their social and emotional wellbeing. Wearing face coverings and keeping our distance has become second-nature for our students and employees. Coupled with other safety measures, from quarantines to school schedule changes, these safeguards haven’t been easy. But they have allowed us to keep our schools operating, our employees safe, and our students healthy and learning. 

It’s important to acknowledge the great weight and challenge that still lies before us. As a community, we’re no longer just talking about bending the curve. We’re going to have to hold the line for an indefinite amount of time. But we should take heart in knowing that what we’re doing is working. It is critical that we not let our guard down and remain vigilant with mitigation strategies.

Mask Up! Utah Revises School Quarantine Rules For Students, Employees Who Don Masks

Time in quarantine could be cut in half for Canyons students and employees who were wearing masks during the moments they were possibly exposed to COVID-19 while at school.  

Under guidelines released by Utah government and education officials on Thursday, Oct. 8, quarantined students and employees who test negative for COVID-19 after the seventh day from their last exposure — and, importantly, only if they were wearing masks at the time of exposure — can return to in-person learning, activities, and work.  

The previous length of the quarantine as mandated by health authorities was 14 days.

Free Sack Meals to Fuel Friday’s At-Home Learning

Canyons District’s lunch crews remain committed to ensuring all students have uninterrupted access to nutritious meals.

Starting Oct. 9, Fridays will be a day for independent, at-home learning for students — and CSD’s Nutrition Services Professionals will make sure they are properly fueled for a full day of study.

On Thursdays, school lunchrooms will double the number of meals they normally prepare, adding a sack lunch to the mix for students to take home and enjoy on Friday. Schools that serve breakfast will also prepare a grab-and-go breakfast.

The sack meals will be made available free of charge for as long as federal grant funding remains in place. Efforts will be made to distribute the meals at the end of the school day so they can be quickly refrigerated. This is important as the sack meals will contain perishable items. Nutrition information for the meals can be found at CSD’s online lunch menu.  

Due to special safety considerations, Jordan Valley School will not be sending sack meals home with students.
