Split-Schedule at Alta, Brighton Allows Return to On-Campus Learning — With Fewer Students

A temporary split-schedule has been announced for Alta and Brighton high schools, effective Wednesday, Oct. 7.

The split-schedule opens the door for students to return to campus for classes while also decreasing the number of students on campus at any one time. It’s hoped this schedule will reduce the number of students quarantined after a possible exposure to COVID-19, better support physical distancing, and supplement existing contact tracing efforts.  

The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases associated with the schools, as well as the rate of transmission in the community, prompted the decision to return to on-campus learning in smaller numbers. The number of cases associated with Canyons schools are available on the District’s data dashboard.

The new schedule replaces the online-only learning model that was put into place Wednesday, Sept. 23 at the two schools in response to increases in positive cases of the novel coronavirus, coupled with a significant number of students who had been placed on quarantine because of a possible exposure. 

Alta and Brighton parents on Monday received information about when students are scheduled to attend.

When students are not at school, their learning will be supported through Canvas. 

It is hoped that students will return to on-campus learning on a regular schedule on Monday, Oct. 26. Parents will receive updates so they can plan for their families accordingly. 

However, if confirmed active COVID-19 cases associated with the schools remain at a concerning level, the temporary schedule may remain intact or other additional precautionary measures may need to be taken after CSD consults with the Salt Lake County Health Department.

After-school activities and sports events will continue as scheduled in line with the guidelines established by the Utah High School Activities Association and health authorities. Those guidelines include required temperature and symptom checks as part of student participation. 

To lessen the number of COVID-19 cases associated with the schools, CSD again asks the community for continued adherence to health and safety protocols such as mask wearing and physical distancing. 

Canyons District recognizes there may be concerns or questions. Please direct questions by email to communications@canyonsdistrict.org. Parents also can call the District Office at 801-826-5000 or the Main Offices of the schools.

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!
