Be a Hero Sign Up to Drive Buses, Serve School Lunch, or Substitute Teach

Throughout the pandemic, Canyons District employees have shown up for students, doing whatever it takes to keep schools open and students safely learning — and now, they could use some help. 

Unprecedented labor shortages, worsened by the fast-spreading omicron variant, have led to operational challenges for Utah’s public schools, including shortages of substitute teachers, bus drivers, lunchroom workers, and other essential support staff. Utah Gov. Spencer Cox has encouraged Utahns to sign up to assist schools at this critical time. On Monday, Jan. 31, Cox issued an executive order permitting state employees to take approved leave time from their state job to sign up to substitute teach, help in the cafeteria, or perform other duties for their neighborhood school. 

The Governor’s order comes as welcome support of Canyons District’s stated commitment to preserve in-person instruction. 

To make it easy for state workers to find and fill high-need jobs in Canyons, we’ve created step-by-step instructions for completing the required paperwork. Canyons District will perform any needed background checks free of charge.

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!
