CSD To Start Taking Space-Available Bus Permit Forms on Aug. 2

School bells will ring on Monday, Aug. 16 — the first day of the 2021-2022 school year. But before the first classes begin, students will rise early, eat a healthy breakfast, and head out the door to walk with friends, ride in the neighborhood carpool — or hop on the school bus. 

To the end of being prepared for the back-to-school buzz surrounding the first day, Canyons District encourages families to review student-transportation plans for all of their children. Click here to use CSD’s “Bus Eligibility and School Locator” online tool. 

Parents of students who do not qualify for transportation can submit an online application for space-available permits. Canyons will begin accepting those applications at 8 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 2.  

Paper forms will not be accepted. Families without computer or Internet access at home may use the computers in the lobbies of schools that also are being used for Online Registration, which also starts on Monday, Aug. 2.

Please be aware that Utah laws governing transportation funding may affect some Canyons District middle school 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 two 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 two miles away from the school to receive the services. 

The space-available permits are granted on a first-come, first-served, space-available basis. 

During the first few weeks of the school year, transportation services will not be provided to students who do not qualify for transportation services, even if they have submitted a space-available permit request. The District needs this time to verify the numbers of students who, according to state law, are guaranteed a spot on the bus. 

Families will be notified about whether they have received a space-available bus permit by Sept. 10.

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!
