Canyons District To Excuse Heat-Related Absences

Canyons School District on Wednesday told parents at 12 schools without air-conditioning that it would excuse absences of students kept home due to heat-related concerns.

High temperatures for the remainder of the week are forecast to soar into the high 90s. Steps have been taken to ensure students and teachers stay as cool as possible in schools without air-conditioning, including installing additional swamp coolers and fans, and providing students with water bottles. However, the District recognizes that those steps may not suffice for all students.

“We recognize some students may be particularly sensitive to the hot conditions,” Superintendent David Doty said in a message to parents. “If you believe your student will be too adversely affected by these conditions, we will give excused absences for your student Wednesday, Thursday and Friday if you decide to keep your child home or check him or her out of school early.”

Parents wishing to exercise this option are asked to notify their school’s front office.

The message was sent to parents in the following 12 schools: Alta View, Edgemont, Midvale, Midvalley and Peruvian Park elementaries; and Albion, Butler, Crescent View, Indian Hills, Midvale, Mount Jordan and Union middle schools.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
