Canyons School District will make crisis counselors available Wednesday and throughout the week to assist students, staff and faculty who are dealing with difficult emotions following Tuesday’s shooting of a Hillcrest High student outside Union Middle School. Faculty also will be given guidance on how to interact with students who express concern about their safety. Like everyone else, the Canyons District community is shaken and extremely saddened by Tuesday’s traumatic events. We have full confidence in the Sandy Police Department, which is conducting a thorough investigation and will continue to provide extra security at our schools. In addition, teachers and administrators will maintain a visible presence in school hallways between classes to monitor activity and positively engage with students. Canyons District strives to create safe and secure campuses at all times, and we will continue to work with law enforcement to maintain safe and secure learning environments at all of our schools.
