When Alta, Brighton and Corner Canyon High students return from Fall Recess, they’ll be returning to on-campus learning.
Starting Monday, Oct. 19, the three schools will shift from split or virtual schedules to full calendars of on-campus instruction.
The change comes at the recommendation of local health officials and signals a significant decline in the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases associated with the schools. In recent days, active cases among Alta, Brighton and Corner Canyon students and employees have fallen well below the 15-case-per-school threshold that triggers discussions about mitigation strategies per Canyons’ guidelines.
Parents received notifications on Wednesday about the return to on-campus learning.
District administrators and school leaders are heartened by these numbers and thank families for doing their part to slow the spread of the virus. For the past two weeks, the Hawks, Bengals and Chargers have redoubled their efforts to remain as safe as possible.
However, now is not the time to relax. This weekend for Fall Recess, many families have planned short getaways, which we hope families enjoy safely. Gatherings or outings without masks or physical distancing increase the chances of COVID-19 taking hold again in the school community.
Parents and guardians can access information about COVID-19 cases in Canyons schools on CSD’s data dashboard, found on Canyons District’s website, canyonsdistrict.org. Information from the dashboard guides Canyons District as the community works together to face this public-health challenge.
As a reminder, all Canyons District schools, including Alta, Brighton and Corner Canyon, are under a four-to-one schedule with four days of classroom learning and Friday reserved for remote, or independent, learning.
