Check Your Bus Eligibility Before Aug. 1 Window to Submit Space-Available Permits

The wheels of the Canyons District school buses will soon go ‘round and ‘round — all over town.

Before classes start for the 2022-2023 school year on Monday, Aug. 15, families are urged to check their bus eligibility and find out whether their bus-stop places and times are different from previous years.

Parents of secondary students also need to be aware of changes to drop-off times on Friday afternoons.

Starting this fall, classes will release 90 minutes early at all Canyons District schools to carve out time for teachers to collaborate, work in teams, and focus on their instruction.

How can parents quickly access this bus-related information?  Simply by going to CSD’s easy-to-use online tool.  

Transportation services are provided to qualifying students. Canyons District receives funding for busing provided to students enrolled in kindergarten through sixth grade who live at least 1 ½ miles from school and students enrolled in grades seven through 12 who live at least 2 miles from school.

This means that some middle school students who qualified for busing last year may not qualify again this year because they have advanced to the seventh-grade and must live more than 2 miles away from the school to receive the services.

However, Canyons has created a “space-available” permit program to help many students who no longer qualify for busing services. Non-qualifying students may submit a request for transportation services so they can ride with their qualifying siblings or neighbors — if there is space on the bus.

Students who attend a school other than the one assigned to them by geographic boundary do not qualify to be considered for space-available permits.

Canyons District will start accepting space-available bus permit requests at 8 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 1.

Click here if you want to submit a space-available bus permit for your child. 

Please submit only if your child is not on the list of students who qualify under state guidelines for transportation to and from school on a CSD bus.

Families will be notified about whether they have received a space-available bus permit by Friday, Sept. 8. During the first few weeks of the school year, bus services will not be provided to non-qualifying students, even if they have submitted a space-available permit request.

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!
