CSD Starts Its ‘Plan, Prepare, Protect’ Safety, Security Effort

How prepared are Canyons District employees, students, and local law enforcement to respond to a Columbine-like crisis?

Beginning this week, Canyons high school students will gather in assemblies to hear of lessons learned from recent school shootings, how to spot and report suspicious activity to prevent acts of violence, and be given an opportunity to participate in Canyons’ School Safety Drill planned for June 18 at Alta High School.

The “Plan, Prepare, Protect” assemblies will involve principals, District officials, school counselors, the Utah School Boards Association and local law enforcement in relaying Canyons’ efforts to keep employees and students safe, and provide an opportunity for emergency responders to practice and fine-tune their tactics in the event a gunman enters a school.

The assemblies will feature Tami Diaz, who tells what it was like to be a student at Columbine High School during the deadliest high school shooting in U.S. history. In that incident, two Colorado students launched a grisly attack on their peers and teachers. Twelve students and a teacher were killed; 23 others were wounded.

The assemblies are scheduled as follows:

  • Alta – Wednesday, April 11
  • Hillcrest – Thursday, April 12
  • Jordan – Monday, April 16
  • Brighton – TBD

Also, the Utah Division of State Risk Management is working with Canyons as a model school district to create a statewide training video. The division has secured a contract with a media company that services KUED to provide the footage, and will partner closely with the District on the editorial content and presentation.

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!
